  1. It's a wild, insanely challenging, and great-looking game.
  2. The controls will definitely take a while to familiarise with, but the rewards are rich in gameplay and visual splendour.
  3. A classic example of style with substance to match, a 'cool' title if you will, that’s bound to impress.
  4. While the linear missions can get quite tough (not to mention adhering to the imposed time limit), controlling the airblade hoverboard is surprisingly intuitive.
  5. It's a refreshing twist on the extreme sports video-game genre, with plenty of solo and multiplayer modes, attractive graphics and a toe-tapping urban soundtrack.

    The levels themselves are nothing short of spectacular, and in freestyle mode, there's moments of real joy to be had tricking off everything and finding secret areas and high wires to grind down. But for us, the lack of skaters, levels, and actual fun in the Story Mode left us sobbing for Tony.

    Airblade’s story-based gameplay, however, vacillates between too simple and ridiculously hard—some levels you’ll breeze through, while others you’ll have to repeatedly restart because of stupid mistakes.

    No Tony Hawk but realy good fun. You won't find the class in this game till you have 7 mates over, all drunk up to your eye-balls and sling the disc in to jam on Party Mode. It's at this point that you wish you had drunk less so you stay on to the final. It looks good too. If you are drunk alot, buy this, if not buy Tony Hawk. Expand

    This sucks. Gameplay problems, sensitive controls, lousy plot, steep difficulty curve. This game looks good but it is nothing but faults.
