To do a manual you just balance on the board like a skater would. I don't understand all the hate for this game. I tried playing on confident for about 30 seconds, and started going in circles. Keep the game on Casual and its fun to play. Expand

  1. The board brings the franchise to life in remarkable ways. There is a decent variety of game modes and the β€˜80s look is a nice touch.
  2. The huge level of frustration is not worth the time it takes to master the awkward gameplay idiosyncrasies. Instead, it’s more tempting – even as someone with experience – to just spam the waggle movements for a passable high score.
  3. Activision panicked, all right, and they fired on all cylinders back at Skate, ready to prove that their series had what it takes to get back on top. Sadly, for fans of Tony Hawk, every shot missed its target. Tony Hawk: Ride was a knee-jerk reaction by a publisher who pushed gimmick over gameplay, and the result feels like the most manufactured, soulless gaming experience to ever be released.
