Skateboard star goes downhill

Add a comment

It feels like skater king Hawk has been the star and making these games for what seems like forever and I read somewhere he has another eight years in his contract so there'lll be heaps more in the half-pipeline.
That makes it all the harder to come up with a fresh angle everytime. This first appeared on the Wii.
It did have some changes from what we have had before in that it feels more like SSX being a downhill racer with a cartoonish feel and apart from Hawk, no other famous pros are featured.
It's rather straightforward stuff but skater fans never seeem to be able to get enough although the Machu Picchu styles allow for some serious scenery during the airtime.
If it's your kind of noise, the soundtrack includes Motorhead, the Ministry and the Futureheads.
