I played this game at an unfortunate friend's house who got this game for Christmas. It's probably one of the most frustrating and boring games I've ever tried. (besides Battletoads) I guess it's supposed to be a lot like Tony Hawk: Ride, but this time you can do BIGGER TRICKS!!!!!!! and YOU CAN SNOWBOARD!!!!11!!! These two things might appeal to adrenyline junkies who live in Kansas, but not me. Now on to the important part.
Gameplay- 5. If you like jumping around on a plastic skateboard you might give this a higher score. (although I kind of liked watching my character crash.) I have to admit, this game would have been better with a normal controller.
Graphics- 6. Meh, they're OK.
Soundtrack- 6. There's alot of songs on there but most of them are filler songs by bands you've never heard of. (just what you'd expect from a Tony Hawk game)
Replay Value- 0. There is no reason I would want to play this game ever again.
If you really like skating games I would stick with Skate 2 or 3. Tony Hawk seems to be going down the toilet. I also learned that this game only sold 3,000 copies in it's first week of being out........ ouch.
Oh, and if you like snowboarding games I would stick with SSX. They might be old but they still rock.

Who would rent this game??? Who has a spare board controller lying around? I am another unfortunate victim to this rental. DO NOT RENT THIS GAME. You cant get past the title screen without having a board hooked up, you cant get the board unless you buy the game. Make sense? Don't know how Gamefly got the game without getting the board. So does Gamefly have a warehouse of Tony Hawk Boards somewhere? Dont understand why Gamefly would even offer this game for rental.
