  1. Actually works shockingly well and pans out to be an engaging, if simplistic, skateboarding experience with some legitimately amusing gags and great presentational aspects.
  2. Doesn't quite live up to its potential, mostly due to very mechanical control and a shallow trick system. [Dec 2003, p.159]

    The tracks and tricks are interesting enough that it's worth taking the short time the story mode occupies, and creating a huge chained negative reaction is always good for a laugh.
  4. By taking a lighthearted and cartoony approach to a genre of games that was previously untouched by such antics, Poponchi succeeds in providing an altogether refreshing gameplay experience for those who are tired of the traditional elements of skateboarding games.

    The gameplay in this is not that fun or addictive, or engaging but the graphics will keep you surprised and stuck for a little while.
