Summary: This game was purchased for my kids and they are loving it. It has quests or trials that you do to earn items and new songs for the playlist which steers the game from just skating around in circles the entire time. It could use more of a storyline or something, but for our family, it's a good addition to the new collection.
Summary: This is a pretty fun game. Especcially for the price! My only complaint is that it doesnt use the balance board enough. You have to use the nunchuck to skate. The balance board is only used for jumping/doing flips/tricks on the halfpipe. My favorite part is when you skate over an orange zone and it turns the air or ground into a rail or halfpipe. Overall this is a fun game!
Summary: I bought this game because I really enjoyed Shaun White's World Stage (Snowboarding). Unfortunately, this game only allows the balance board to be used to a limited degree, forcing the player to use an awkward combination of balance board and nunchuks. So, it's not very enjoyable.
Summary: The game is fun, no doubt. The Wiimote/nunchuk controls are familiar, but I bought this game because it said it was balance board compatible and I'm an ace at the Wii Fit skateboarding. Well.. I was bummed. You still have to use the Wiimote and nunchuk as well as the balance board, and all you can do with the balance board is jump. You can't use it for anything else like steering or accelerating. All of this is still done with the remote. What a waste!!!!!
