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: Skate it is an excellent skating game. However, this is not an open world game. It is all different skateparks. The game has some bad parks, and good ones, and 1 or 2 epic ones. This game needs to be played with the balance board, but not worth buying it. This game looks great, when moving. When not it is garbage. Pixels are visible everywhere. The framerate is perfect with little to no slowdown. This game will last months, so buy it.
Summary: This game is asome. I got this game a few years ago and found it in my closet. I just turned ten and my parents got me a wii for my birthday. The first day I played it i was addicted to it. Now I'm getting an xbox 360 so I can play 123. I'm a skater and this game is awesome so get IT.
