this is an iffy game for me. graphics look great. speed is great. but it seems like a lot of work. i never got into skateboarding so having a skateboard control system doesn't do it for me.
it seems like an arcade game that you see at dave and busters. not that that's a bad thing. but it doesn't give much hope to depth.
if i'm going to be putting in the work, it better be dancing. not pseudoskateboarding.
i used to be a ddr nut. even bought a pair of the foam ddr pads when they were $70 each (and that was at ebay prices). but that was even a drop in the bucket compared to ddr people who paid $500 for 2 metal pads.
then again, I bought the Guitar Hero World Tour kit when it was near the peak. and there are Rock Band gurus who paid over $200 for a drum set or will pay for one of the new guitars.
so again, if the experience is worth it, it's worth it.
to each his own. some people pay hundreds for gaming headphones. to me, that's excessive.
