    this is a rather addicting game once you get the hang of it. the balance board whilst fun to use is very difficult unless you have heaps of practise using it. use the remote an nunchuk for best game experience. the career mode is awesome fun , as most of the challenges dont take 100's of tries to get, but only some will u get first go. i also love to take a break from career and havethis is a rather addicting game once you get the hang of it. the balance board whilst fun to use is very difficult unless you have heaps of practise using it. use the remote an nunchuk for best game experience. the career mode is awesome fun , as most of the challenges dont take 100's of tries to get, but only some will u get first go. i also love to take a break from career and have some fun with thrashers hall of meat. so far i have managed to break all but one bone (it was sprained) in the one fall. best place for this is dannys mega park, HUGE RAMPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This game rocks. nunchuk/wii remote combo is easiest.. I beat this game already with that. Wii remote on its own and board are way harder but i am definately improving at both, plan to beat this game usin all 3 control methods graphics do have jaggies, but overall yu dont notice, cause the skateboard has the focus, not th rider, you almost forget about the rider as you work on sequences This game rocks. nunchuk/wii remote combo is easiest..

    If I could give this a 7.9 I would. (It's just not a perfect 8) This game is great. THERE IS A SHARP CONTROL LEARNING CURVE. I would suggest playing this game in freeskate for awhile to get past that. Once you have gotten past the controls, which work well once learned, the game is Good. Not excellent but a sturdy G-O-O-D. Even though this games multi-player modes are not incredible, If I could give this a 7.9 I would. (It's just not a perfect 8) This game is great. THERE IS A SHARP CONTROL LEARNING CURVE.

Even though this games multi-player modes are not incredible, I have had many great hours playing this game with a friend in career mode. The Replay feature (slow-motion, rewind etc.) and the ability to save replays adds alot to this game. Overall, The game is fun and my Wii will be seeing alot of it but the learning curve + the two horrible introlevels can be frustrating. Worth a play but PLEASE, play more than an hour. It gets very involving once you get it down. Expand

    And that's a small taste of the poor control scheme. The slightest twitch or turn of the Wii-mote creates a wholly new effect -- and frequently, it's one you don't even want. It's even worse on the Wii Balance Board; by default, the turning is overly responsive, even after reducing the board's sensitivity. However, this makes it harder for the device to register a trick.

    Skate It comes highly recommended. The original Skate rejuvenated skating games with a new control scheme and a real sense of freedom, and that success carries over to the Wii.
  3. A risky game with a control system based on the movement and the Wii Balance Board. The best skaters will see in it a different proposal and a quality game for Nintendo's console. But there are also problems and frustrations with that system.
