  1. Although AirBlande's refreshing look and feel scores it kudos, it doesn't even come close to matching the quality of the THPS series. [Mar 2002, p.27]
  2. 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.
  4. The game needs either unlimited boost or longer time limits. Either one would have boosted its playability considerably. [Feb 2002, p.55]

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