Summary: I gave it four stars overall because I thought this game was outstanding. This game may have had bad controls with just the Wii Remote (it says the Balance Board is required, but only if you prefer to use it), but it is great playing with the Wii Remote and Nunchuck.
Summary: So. After reading all the reviews and actually playing the game for two weeks, this is what I think: Yes, I've played EA skate on the 360 or P3, and those have better graphics and more precise controls (barely), but I don't have a 360 or P3; I have a Wii. My wife likes playing the Wii.
Good but more realistic with a real skateboard deck

Summary: I have owned skateboards for over 30 years. I got this game because it supported the balance board. While the motion was about as accurate as you can get on a balance board, there was still something missing.
