A great game for a Tony Hawk lover, but I still prefer Project 8 over this. The new additions (nail-the-grab, nail-the-manual) are great and really well executed, although different grind and manual balance meters take a little getting used to. The storyline isn't as rigid as P8 and there are lots of options available to you, almost too many at one time. Personally I found the photo and filming goals a little hard a bit boring – for those who are used to just doing the trick (or tricks for filming) you now need to take the pictures yourself which is a real pain, and setting up the cameras is a nightmare.
Overall a great game, especially if you're a fan of Skate as they have started introducing some of those elements.
