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. Being a 30 year old with a some minor knee injury that makes it annoyingly painful to try anything on my skateboard in real life, I really appreciate this game.
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. I found that some simple things like steering, it didn't really react the same as a real board. Recently, I was building a new board and had just installed deck rails and grip tape on my new deck.
Summary: I got this for our 6 1/2 yr old son for Christmas. We also got him the Wii Fit Plus so that he could use the balance board with it. I just asked him and he really loves this skateboarding game and said it's "totally awesome".
