This game is a play on the same old Tony Hawk theme. BAM, bring in the Wii! AWESOME! This game was made for Wii. I could not stop playing it. This is what the Wii was made for! Get it! My Dad even liked it!

I played this game 4 times, and couldn't get it into it. Perhaps with time it may become more involving, but there wasn't anything there that made me want to keep playing. Control was okay, but a bit fumbly at points. Something just seems wrong about controlling a skater the same way you drive a car. While the trick system is simple, pulling them while turning the controller would take a good bit of practice.
After playing Excite truck, this game seems slow, especially for the speed associated with downhill boarding. It might have been sweet if you held the Wiimote in the same direction as the board and moved it as if it were the board.
If you really like skating give it a rent, but I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.
