  1. Fails in the most basic concept, which would be to bring something new to the table. It’s just another washed up "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" clone.
  2. Unfortunately, there really isn't much more meat on the bones here. No create-a-skater, no skater statistics to flesh out or tweak, not even a bunch of new outfits or anything.
  3. A pretty weak game. With poor control, counterintuitive level design, and drab graphics, X Games Skateboarding is best suited for skateboarding fans looking for a quick fix in the form of a rental.
  4. 49
    The interface and presentation elements are nice to look at, but when that's the biggest thing your game has going for it, you are in real trouble.

    Sweet tricks and hard to finish the game unlike Tony Hawk, which is way too easy to beat!
