"Awesome!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love all the Tony Hawk series and have all of them from the original PS1 version, and this is added to my collection perfectly! However, my kids and my little brother had never played Tony's games and they absolutely love it too, it's cool how their are different levels of technique like in all of his games, however on this one as you are riding it, it seems a little more realistic. I love the fact that you can just hop on and ride, I also find for the slightly heavier of the family (that'd be me…) it gives my legs a bit of a work out, you haven't got sore thumbs the next day, more like sore hips!

I would recommend Mighty Ape and their onto it service and this game (and have) to all whether you're a skater or a grandma, it's a fun game and everyone can enjoy it.

"GET OFF THE COUCH AND RIDE!!!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is the most fun ive had on a game in ages, ive played alot of skating games and this is by far the most realistic the board actually puts you in the game. This is alot of fun with friends because you can see their style of skating compared to yours on the board and on screen.

This price for the game is such an amazing deal and if your not sure about it just go for it because you will have hours of fun on this.

"An enjoyable novelty play style"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I would not usually purchase something like this but with the recent Easter sales it was at quite a cheap price and the guys I live with thought it looked like it might be fun. So I went ahead and brought it.

When it got here we ripped into it and jumped into the game right away. My first impressions were that the easy mode you didnt have much freedom to do anything but follow a path which even though you could do tricks became rather boring rapidly. So I changed it over to the medium setting and it was much better in that you could actually steer your character. The novelty of steering wore off quickly as it became very hard to go strait at any time as any lean on the board would lead to a turn on screen.

Other than those complaints the tricks are fun and once you get the hang of balancing on the board it is actually a good time. You also know you have been playing afterwards, the next day especially. Over all a fun novelty game style which was definitely worth the special price but you would have to be really keen on skating and gaming to pay the full retail for it, but if you are then go for it, you will have a hoot!

Description

Experience the true thrill of skateboarding as never before through the revolutionary new skateboard controller in Tony Hawk: Ride. Bundled with the Ride game, the unique motion-sensitive board controller redefines the action-sports genre by translating your body motions into the game. No buttons, no thumbs, no analogue sticksjust you on the board. For the first time in video game history, anyone can jump on a skateboard and feel the freedom, creativity, and accomplishment of skateboarding.

Fans of board sports will love the authentic experience of the board controller, while the intuitive nature of the board and multiple difficulty settings make it a fun and exciting experience for people of all ages and skill levels. The ease with which anyone can pick up and play this game and each player's unique playing style make this a fun social game for friends and family to play together. So, are you ready to Ride?

All About the Board
Using full motion sensing technology, the intuitive skateboard controller allows players to physically control the action by performing various movements and gestures on the board that directly translate into amazing tricks seen in the game. Closely resembling a "deck"--a board without wheels or trucks, which allows actual skateboarders to manoeuvre their boards--the Ride controller is built around a combination of flat and rounded surfaces. Along the majority of the board's upper surface, as well as the middle center portion of its bottom, players will find flat, level surfaces that provide for players' balance. This is countered by the rounded edges along the top at either ends, as well as the bottom outer edges. These allow for true to life trick performance mechanics which allows gamers to experience a full range of movement as they rotate, tilt and lift the board in a variety of ways to discover every trick in the game.

Features:
  • Four different modes built into the game include: Challenge, Speed, Trick, and Free Skate, in epic locations across the globe
  • Includes the innovative 'Ride' board controller featuring motion sensing technology, smart sensors, a contoured base and a gritty surface to ensure a good grip
  • With no complicated control schemes to master, the game is designed to allow players to get on the board and start mastering the 100+ built in moves from the beginning
  • Eight player multiplayer and online play support lets you and your friends feel the thrill of skateboarding together
  • Multiple difficulty levels make the game a fun and challenging experience for people of all skill levels
