Summary: The Tony Hawk Skateboard bundle is not worth buying. We have never been able to get it to work. We have spent a lot of time trying different things we read online to get it to work, but it still will not work. From what I have read, many people have this same issue with getting it to calibrate and some are successful, but no product should be this discouraging to use.
Summary: Honestly I bought this game for my little 12 yr old brother because he is into skateboarding and just like me when I was his age I was into tony hawks original games like Tony Hawk Underground and Tony hawk Pro Skater. Anyways I got him the game at a local target for $20.00. I helped him set it up let me just say setting the board up to communicate with the Wii is so random and hard.
Summary: Very disappointed. This was the "big" Christmas present for my son, and it rarely works. Have followed all directions/troubleshooting notes, etc., including turning off other electronics and removing metal items from space. Will turn on at times, but not often. Amazon gets high marks for both delivery and the return. Thank you.
Summary: The board will not calibrate to the system. I have tried multiple board positions (it was synced properly) with various room lighting, moved the furniture out dimmed the TV, tried older batteries (internet suggestion) and it won't calibrate.
Summary: if I could give negative stars, I would. It won't calibrate no matter HOW the dongle or the WII or anything else is lined up. What a piece of garbage. The only one getting any joy out of this is Tony Hawk into whose pocket the profits go. DO NOT BUY!
We purchased 2 of these....1 for Wii & 1 for our PS3
25 November 2010
Summary: The 1 we got for the wii is fun, although you just get into it & the board looses connection as soon as you really get into it!!! The ps3, we have yet 2 get it to connect to play it @ all! I would have returned it but I had purchased it a while earlier for the grandkids b4 they came to play it!I definetly WOULD NOT risk it to make the purchase again! They have some issues to work out of them for sure!
Summary: I purchased this from Amazon because it was the only place that had them at the time. I got it early and put it away for my son for Christmas. My son opened it on Christmas and was excited to try it out. The next day we set it up - it didn't work - at all. It's still sitting in his closet in the box. I had waited too long to open it and try it out to return it. $100 wasted!
