SpongeBob's Surf & Skate Roadtrip
5 January 2012
Excerpt: Who skates on the asphalt and surfs in the sea? SpongeBob SquarePants! Fresh off appearances in Nicktoons MLB , the quirky cartoon star and his pal Patrick return to the 360 in SpongeBob’s Surf & Skate Roadtrip , which lets you tackle land and water descents alike via Kinect. In each variation, you’ll stand sideways as though atop a real surf or skateboard, moving your front foot to steer the board around hazards, through coins and destructible objects, and onto ramps...
Pros: + Fast, fun, and silly board-based action.
Cons: ? Wait, the show has more than two characters, right?
Simple Kinect-enabled boarding game is fun but forgettable.

Summary: Parents need to know that SpongeBob’s Surf & Skate Roadtrip is a sports game that features characters from the popular SpongeBob SquarePants television show. For the Xbox 360 version, it requires a Kinect sensor to play; and encourages a moderate amount of physical activity as players change position to maneuver their boards. There’s not much in the way of narrative or messages, and even less in the way of offensive content.
Excerpt: It’s really quite hard to believe that the Tony Hawk’s series is a decade old. Many have grown up with it, mastered it and pulled off combos in the millions and have probably pulled them off just as many times. Over time, many have also grown fatigued with the series, no doubt desiring a new approach for the franchise. Well, even if Activision’s series is still not quite offering that, EA’s upstart new game, the simply titled Skate, certainly is.
