  • Summary: If you're tired of the traditional skateboarding experience, Evolution: Skateboarding takes you to a variety of imaginative levels. From the neon streets of Tokyo to the dungeons of a European castle, you can grab air and perform more than 70 death-defying tricks and continue the challenges with the new Boss Skate mode. Through eight professional skaters, you can access different parts of the world, featuring more than 25 levels. As you advance through the matches, you'll unlock hidden characters from Konami's most popular games. Collapse

  1. Does bring something new to the genre - boss battles that test your trick skills like no other skateboarding game. [Jan 2003, p.172]
  2. It tries to offer some humor and a little bit of fantasy to an otherwise bland game. But it suffers from a lack of difficulty and a few control and glitch issues.
  3. 43
    You may want to give it a rental if you want to see Solid Snake on GameCube, but otherwise stick to the superior extreme sports offerings that are out there.
  4. The bottom line on this game is that it makes a great appetizer but you'll want "Tony 4" or "Aggressive Inline" for the main course.
  5. The fact that you have to hold down the manual button to keep it going is simply preposterous; it's nearly impossible to transition to a grind or another trick. [Dec 2002, p.90]
