  1. A very fun game, thanks to the use of the balance board in conjunction with the Nunchuk and Wiimote.
  2. On the whole, playing this game is an enjoyable experience. There are countless challenges with reasonable levels of difficulty, the presentation does the trick, and there's often a decent sense of speed.
  3. In conclusion, the developers tried to be a little too clever in terms of controls and they should have focused on just one control system, rather than attempt to cater for everyone. It feels a little rushed in this department which makes mastering the tricks a very hard experience.
  4. As an entry-level game for younger skater enthusiasts this is great, as a balance board game it's merely okay. [July 2009, p.82]
  5. The controls were not ironed out enough, which makes the game almost impossible to play with the balance board. Even the motion controls are not very good. Hopefully the next version will iron out these issues as this could be a really great "younger-gamer friendly" skateboarding series. The game as it is now is best left as a last option rental.
  6. The Wii doesn't have a great history with skating games, but that's no reason to settle for a boring, charmless title such as this. [July 2009, p.72]
