and the Simpsons, it doesn't get much better than that. This game
is like any other skateboarding game, but instead of pros it's the
residents of Springfield rippin it up for the grand prize at the
Springfield Skate Fest. It's all about the Benjermans here, a whopping
$99. The graphics look like that one episode where homer gets 3D.
And while you skate Kent Brockman makes fun of you. It's swell.
Kickflips to back flips, you can do it all except for
heelflips for some reason. And it does gets a little kookie when
Homer sits on the board during tail slides, but the tricks do look
nifty. The characters have steeze for days. You can either do the
skate jam and compete or play against your friends at a game of
horse. Apparently the programmers don't play s.k.a.t.e.
If you compete for the grand prize in the skate jam
every level has three parts: Skill schools where you learn new tricks
and get money to boost your abilities. Skate Jam were you try to
beat objectives to open new levels and boards. And a timed trick
contest were you get the high score to unlock new skaters.
This game pounds. It's kept me up till 3am for the
last week. I'm addicted. So if you like the other skate games this
one is better. Instead of using that old guy Tony what's his name
you can use the other old guy Homer Simpson. On a scale of 1 through
10 I give this game an A++.
So check your couch, your pockets, your lunch money
and get some cash to buy it now. Not now, but right now.
