Summary: I had no idea what to expect after all the bad reviews for this product. I did have some initial trouble going through the calibration. I ended up turning down the lighting and replacing the batteries and it immediately calibrated for me. Im not sure which of those did it but I was excited to begin the tutorials. I had a 20 year skateboarding career so i was interested to play a skateboarding game that utilized something besides the WII balance board! This game is great.
Summary: I've read so many bad reviews on calibration and regretted buying the game even before trying and warned my son not to expect it to work. However, I used the tips from the reviews on Amazon and was able to calibrate on my second try in less than 10 minutes. Here is what I did: 1. Used two old and two new batteries 2. Turned all lights off (except the TV) 3. Put the skateboard controller approximately 4 feet away from the sensor and 4.
great game, 9 year old callibrated it in 10 minutes
31 December 2011
Summary: Our 9 year old callibrated it in 10 minutes. We were doing other stuff in the meanwhile and because he didn't have any problems I cannot give any tips for people how he did it. I guess he just followed the instructions. Our children are playing with it now for over an hour and seem to love the game. It is a little difficult for our 5 year old but with some help from his older brothers even he seems to manage a little bit.
