Summary: I thought this game was utter pap! I bought it on release day on the strength of reviews I'd read online (not here) and on memories of playing either this or Double Dragon back when I was about 13. What a disappointment. :o( Mindless button bashing that doesn't seem to need a strategy. Within 2 days it was back out of my GBA to be replaced by MK Super Circuit and Tony Hawks. Much better. Took the game back and traded it in for Paper Mario.
