Summary: I purchased this game with my own money and was a fair buy. i have never been ice skating, so i might not know what it is really like, but this game isnt realistic at all. the graphics are also pretty bad. the game starts when you are at the skating rink and you get your first weekly goal. every single week you have to raise your stamina, coordintation, or artistry. then you learn a new trick which is very fun. the game is to involved in the story line too.
Summary: I got this game for Christmas and I simply had to have it, when I saw a trailer for the japanese version. Overall, it's been fun... The first week you have to learn the double toe loop and raise your stamina by eating sushi, weird! There is a variety of mini-games that add an engaging story line to this game, but somehow the tasks you have to do are repetitive, the makers of this game are good, but they shoud've added more experience and interest for customers to play,...
Summary: I've been a gamer all my life, but I always had to play the same games as the boys. Video games for girls were few and far between, and often hampered by limited game-play and stupidity. As if girls were not interested in video games because we're not any good at it, so everything had to be simplified for us. Well, forget that. The Nintendo DS is the first system to really try to reach out to girls by marketing a variety of games to them.
Summary: This game is really fun at first, though the story line is long and there's lots of pointless dialogue. The romance is a bit weird and the fans are really creepy. I got this for my 11 year old daughter and she had lots of fun with it except when she got to the "State Competition". SHe got very frustrated and couldn't move on because her score wasn't high enough. She's been playing over and over again and is very annoyed with the game.
Summary: I have always wondered how they would create a figure skating game. How to manuever the jumps and make it interactive with some sort of skill or ability on the player. The developers have designed an interesting tool of tracing patterns, once for each revolution, in order to complete jumps and various other stylus manuevers for spins and footwork. So i was very pleased with that.
Summary: Ok, at first it is fun; skating with coach, talking to friends, and playing the fun mini games. It has kind of dull and annoying music but it's not unbearable. Also, the story-line is a bit cheesy. It is dumb becasue it won't let you do anything in your life but what is programed for you and the people talk too much. The expressions are silly, ex. when falling OOH!, and before jumps and spins, Here We Go!
Summary: This is a very cute game, and not as boring as most of the Imagine series... it's more like Princess Debut, with perky anime characters, costumes to choose from, and rhythm-based gameplay. Much like Princess Debut, the gameplay can get a little monotonous at the beginning because you must slowly level up your stats and learn new moves, doing only a little each day, and performing the same minigames over and over and over.
Summary: I am a teen skater myself and my grandmother saw an advertisement for this game and sent it to me. It is all together a fun game so far. (I received it tonight) The jazzy/elevator music is slightly annoying, but not repetitious like some games. You can choose between 3 girls, they are all different in looks and the booklet gives their description(likes, dislikes, etc).
Conclusion: My fiance bought me this for christmas as i'm a keen figure skater - the concept is fantastic; however the game play is short, there are only a few mini games which seem to be extremely random, i completed this game in less than 2 hours without really trying. I know the age says 3+ but other games i own are a lot more intense and complicated with the same age rating. Overall in my opinion its a fun short game but a little expensive for what you actually get.
