Excerpt: Criterion Games, the team behind AirBlade and the developer of the much-licensed Renderware engine, is no stranger to hoverboard games. TrickStyle, its previous take on the genre, was easy on the eyes but became tedious quickly. Having learned from its mistakes, Criterion brings AirBlade to the PlayStation 2 with significantly better results. AirBlade's story mode kicks off with some corporate bad guys busting into your house and kidnapping your roommate, Oscar.
Excerpt: Kung Fu Panda , while having a lot of potential (especially when compared to the next-gen versions), ultimately comes through as a bad movie tie-in game filled with issues that just make the game feel rushed. Visually, the game isn't bad at all considering the age of the system. Textures and models are a little blurry, but that is better than blocky in my opinion.

Conclusion: AirBlade was a bit of surprise, to be honest. At first the game appeared to be very pretty but too hard and bit floaty. Fancy that. But the game really grew on me and I found myself going back to improve my score, perform the elusive triple flip and even going through the plot again.

Excerpt: At a time when extreme sports had began to capture both the minds and wallets of gamers worldwide Criterion decided to take the genre to the next level. Two years ago the company released a great hoverboarding game on Dreamcast (and later on the PC) called
Conclusion: Es un Gran Turismo algo capado, para los que os hagáis una idea los jugadores de GT, recuerda mucho al Tokyo – Geneva. (Gran Turismo Concept 2002). No hay fallos jugables excepto que solo hay 4 coches en pista, pero por lo demás, salvando las distancias con la potencia de una ps2 o ps3, el juego cumple.
Excerpt: Surfant sur la vague des sports extrêmes et notamment du skate, Airblade dépose les roulettes et nous propose un petit tour d'overboard façon Retour Vers Le Futur pour un titre à mi-chemin entre le légendaire Tony Hawk's Pro Skater et le non moins célèbre Jet Set Radio.
