Tony Hawk: Ride with SkateBoard
MY first warning should have been the price, but I set it up and... it didn't work. Didn't even get past the tutorial. Pathetic.
$120 for a game not worth $12. Skip it.
When I saw E3 footage of people jumping around on a skateboard controller, I thought, "Wow, that's really cool!" To my disappointment, it turned out to be one of the worst games I've ever played. Scratch that--this IS the worst game I've ever played. To start, the graphics are hideous, even by Wii standards. Blurry textures, stiff character animations, bland and ugly environments, and severe pop-in make this game at times look like an N64 game. But on to the more important matter: the skateboard controls do not work at all. They're awkward, unresponsive, and just downright infuriating. Younger gamers should have fun, but that's only if they're unaware of the fact that they're failing at pretty much everything. Unlike previous Tony Hawk games, RIDE ditches the exaggerated, adrenaline-fueled button mashing mechanics for timing-based gameplay that resembles EA's Skate franchise. The problem with that is the skateboard controller's varying unresponsiveness, coupled with the frame rate hiccup that accompanies just about every in-game action you make, makes it nearly impossible to accurately time jumps and tricks. In fact, I got so frustrated with the controls that I just sat down and moved the board with my hands. And it still didn't work. The simple inclusion of the option to use a normal controller would have fixed this problem to a huge extent. Overall, the best word I can use to describe RIDE is underdeveloped. It doesn't even feel like Activision even finished making the game before releasing it. Tony Hawk, you had an awesome idea, but Im sorry to say that the developers botched it, big time. I know I said a kid might have fun with it, but if you're shopping for a kids' game, there are a ton of other games out there at half the price that they'll enjoy at least twice as much. Save your money; pass this one up.
Tony hawk you did it a again. I love this game. I got this game and i can not atop playing it.
Is it winter and you can't skateboard? Then get out your Tony Hawk: Ride! This game is great and lets you do what a real pro skater does in real life. Such as manuals, ollies, kickflips, casper flips, heel flips, you name it we got it! You Complete challanges such as jumping rails and grinding obsticles. Tons of places you can skate all over the country! Are you not feeling up for challenges and time runs? Than pick free skate where you just do your thing at your speed. You can also pick levels. Beginner, confident, and expert. Beginner will guide you and you do the moves. Confident won't guide you but will give you some help, and expert will leave it all to you were you just do your thing without the training wheels! Overall this game is Awesome!
BEST. GAME. EVER.
This game is fantastic! First of all, people play this game for a day and say they dont like it, but actually, its because they dont know how to play, and havent tried out all of the tricks and controls. This game kept me playing for hours! This is a great game for boys and girls of ALL ages. It is worth every penny! It is better that any other game! This game gives the players the thrill of actual skateboarding. Nobody has experienced actual fun in gaming until they have gotten this game!

Wow! I realy hope to get this game! I would play everyday! This is the start a new generation of skateboarding!
Dude this game is going to be incredible! I am so happy they made a Tony Hawk game that you can play on a skateboard. The only that concerns me are the graphics. They looked terrible in the movie. This game will be great for multiplayer free rides!
