Excerpt: I've never partaken in any "extreme" sports, although I enjoy watching these kinds of exhibitions on ESPN. Skateboarding has dominated the "extreme" landscape, thanks to the likes of one Mr. Tony Hawk, and the same can be said for "extreme" video gaming. There's the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series... and then all of the other games seem to fall well short of the benchmark established by those games.
Excerpt: Back in 1999 very few people, except the hardcore crowd that followed and took part in activities like skateboarding and roller blading, enjoyed extreme sports. Then in late 1999 a game came out on the PlayStation that changed the world as we know it. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (originally known as Tony Hawk's Skateboarding in this country) was released to amazing critical and commercial success and two sequels later and with another on the way, the series seems unstoppable.
Excerpt: Accalim Sports has been hard at work trying to break grounds with the first blading game for the next gen consoles. They did a hell of a job on it too. Who would have thought a blading game could be this much fun!
Excerpt: Aggressive Inline follows the tradition set by the popular Tony Hawk franchise of bringing a popular extreme sport to the consoles. Gameplay revolves around performing tricks in large environments for points or performing certain requirements to unlock new levels.
Pros: Large areas, Experience system and Juice Bar add variety to game, Lots to unlock

Excerpt: After the insane success of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, a plethora of imitators and wannabes emerged to cash-in on the extreme sports craze. Unfortunately for the consumer, many of these games aren't even worth a second glance. Enter Acclaim on its eight little wheels with Aggressive Inline. As an aggressive inliner myself, I quickly feasted upon this game's delicious banquet of gameplay. I can guarantee those interested will not skitch away disappointed.
Excerpt: We've seen plenty of extreme sports games since Tony Hawk's Pro Skater revitalized the genre a few years ago. And while Neversoft's Tony Hawk games have since led the way in new features and graphics over the years since, surely other developers can come up with something as good or better, right? With the exception of the excellent SSX games, it's been a long time getting to that point.
Excerpt: Aggressive Inline review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Aggressive Inline is an alternative sports game developed by Z-Axis and published by Acclaim. It is basically a refined and enhanced version of everything before it. Imagine Tony Hawk 3 without all the bails and movement restrictions, and you’ll be halfway to understanding what Aggressive Inline has to offer. But this isn’t merely a rehash with a few added bells and whistles.
Excerpt: More often than not, only one developer is associated with the recent alternative sports boom. But back when all this skateboarding and biking business started in earnest, there were two. Neversoft had teamed up with Activision to deliver Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, which eschewed skateboarding realism for fast, well-defined gameplay.
