This doesn't do it for me, I'm afraid...

Summary: The graphics in this game are very good - and the animation of the skaters is so good they look positively human in their movements (in fact I'm sure the original graphics must have been drawn around actual footage of real figures - no animator can capture human movement this well). I want to like this game - I *really* do. But the problem is that I can't.
Summary: I have this title on Dreamcast (and have also played the PlayStation game), but this GBA version isn't up to those standards, suffering, as it does, from only the one camera angle - the camera doesn't 'follow' your skater as with other versions of the game, making it incredibly difficult to judge where exactly to jump to get the best grinds etc. It's still basically a decent enough game though, and hopefully hints at things to come on Nintendo's new console.
