Loaded with all-new gameplay features, Skate It breaks new ground by introducing innovative support for the Wii Balance Board which gives players a fresh way to create their own signature skateboarding style. Skate It unleashes the FlickIt revolution on to the Nintendo platforms, letting gamers use the Wii remote or the Nintendo DS stylus to string together their best tricks for the ultimate skate line. The Wii remote becomes a skateboard and reacts to gestures that mirror actual skate flips and moves. Players can also deepen this experience by planting their feet on the Wii Balance Board. Skate It brings the Skate franchise to a new level of creative ingenuity and gameplay excellence. [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. This is a must have for any Wii owner and yet another reason to own a Wii Board. The best skater in the current gen.

    This is a game that will appeal most directly to the Wii's casual market. But anyone who enjoys an innovative game should spend some time here. In staggering their releases on Wii and 360/PS3 EA have certainly kept Skate in the public eye.
  3. 80
    A lengthy career mode is Skate It's highlight, as it sees you building your skills through increasingly difficult challenges.
  4. While the quick menus help you get on your board as soon as possible and the camera never gets in the way of your next trick, this game would have benefited so much from better controls that didn’t cause you to miss rails and slam into walls.
  5. 70
    The game is plenty big enough to satisfy even very demanding gamers, but I would be concerned about those controls. Not everyone wants to spend too long getting to know a difficult control system, these days. Often, immediacy is key and this is a step away from plug and play.
  6. While not as fully realized as its Xbox 360/PS3 counterpart, Skate It proves to be enough fun to recommend ... but only if you're willing to put the time in to get over the mountainous learning curve!

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

    Whowzers, that's what I LITERALLY said the first time I played it. I think now that I skate in this game I can now call myself a skater. AllWhowzers, that's what I LITERALLY said the first time I played it. I think now that I skate in this game I can now call myself a skater. All the girls are gonna like me now, they wont run away or tell me to get lost. Best experience ever, the only thing tho is that I was playing with my friend (Yes, I have a friend. I'm like popular and stuff) and I got so excited that my wee wee was doing that thing it does when I get excited and I couldn't stand up for a while. but other than that amazing. Expand

The stylus controls are remarkably precise. Using the bottom screen, you quickly draw your tricks on a picture of a skateboard. An upward slash will give you an ollie, while a diagonal slash will produce a kickflip, and so on. You have dozens of tricks to experiment with, and most of them are easy to pull **** Drawing out your tricks is intuitive, but it does take a bit of getting used to before you can successfully pull off a long line of combos. Thankfully, the margin of error is wide and the recognition is usually good. With a selection of over 2000 tricks you can't get this wrong. Expand
