Summary: I've only written a few reviews in my life and this product was so disappointing I couldn't help but spend the time to warn other people to save them some frustration. My mother accidentally bought just the game (not the skateboard that goes with it) for my son for Christmas.
Summary: My son (age 7) begged me for this Tony Hawk bundle for his birthday. Unfortunately, it took us over a week to get it working! Twere several issues with the product connecting to our gaming system. It took us three neighbors to get it going. If you have patience, but the product.
