Excerpt: Although the Tony Hawk series is the definitive skating game in the console world, there have been many attempts to knock this title from its perch and EA Sport's Skate has come close but not quite. This is where you may think Skate City Heroes comes into the picture, however unlike the two aforementioned games, Skate City Heroes is aimed at a different market, that of the younger gamer.
Summary: In Skate City Heroes fans get the feel of skateboarding as players can get up on their feet and use the Wii Balance Board accessory, bringing action and innovation into the living room for the whole family.
Conclusion: On the whole, playing this game is an enjoyable experience. There are countless challenges with reasonable levels of difficulty, the presentation does the trick, and there's often a decent sense of speed. Again, hardcore skater-game fans won't find what they're looking for here, and those who aren't skater-game fans won't find much to change their minds, but casual gamers and young players new to the genre will really get a kick out of Skate City Heroes.
