    If the balance board controls worked, the game world wasn't so barren and there weren't severe balancing issues, this would be okay. [Feb 2009, p.64]
  2. As with the original Skate, Skate It manages to feel authentic and it comes with some sharp ideas. But the game's presentation and control just don't pan out, and it seems like a game that'll frustrate players more often than not. If you're a Skate fan looking for what's next, do yourself a solid and wait for Skate 2.

    Judged solely on its Balance Board controls, Skate It comes up little short of unplayable thanks to a bewildering complexity. [Jan 2009, p.96]

MUST HAVE GAME Full Review »
