Slow News day?
Bit late with this review arent you? I mean the games been out for nearly 6 months now (in the UK)
I found it (the board) quite sturdy and robust (easily handles my 17 Stone, 6' 3" ex rugby players frame) the game itself was quite good but trying some of the tricks can be very difficult.
Also, if you are playing this in a room with carpets, might be worthwhile investing in a Skate boarding mat, many hours playing on this and your Partner / Mum will be going mad at the bald patch appearing on the carpet!
Let face it, it's the only way a 40 something guy like me can ever come close to skate boarding, I wouldnt fancy grabbing a board and hitting the local Skate Park, the big kids would pick on me :-)
