Graphics: 8: Electronic Arts made this game, they're also
the same people who brought us Road Rash. The skaters look
awesome, and so do all the vehicles. The game looks really
good all together, but sometimes in multiplayer mode, the
game comes to a complete standstill for a second or two.
Sound: 7: You got your regular gang type music here, with
somebody saying "Skitchin" when the game starts. All the
sound effects sound good, especially when you get nailed by
Gameplay: 8: You are a rollerblader, you rollerblade on a
road, and you look on your rearview mirror, to see if a car
is zommin down your way, if one is, you press left(or right)
on the control pad and the C button simultaneously, and your
blader will bend down with his arm sticking out in the
direction you pressed the control pad, and you try to grab
on to the bumper of the car, you'd be safer off too, if you
duck while on the back of the car, because sometimes if the
driver sees you, he'll pop his truck and you'll fly off, and
some times your rival bladers will skitch onto the same
vehicle you're on, sometimes up to 3 at a time, you're gonna
have to punch or kick him off, but you can pick up weapons
laying along the side of the road to like a lead pipe,
baseball bat, a whip, a chain, or electric tazer stick. You
get bonus points for skitching onto a police car as well.
You gotta finish within the top 3 to progress onto the next
race, and you get cash for finishing your races too, so you
can upgrade your wheels, pads, helmets, and the rest of your
gear too. This also happens to be the same game that I got
my internet handle in, you gotta come up with a name for
your blader, most of the other name of the other bladers
have gang type names like Chainz, etc. so off the top of my
head I came up with Gruel.
Replay Value: 8: There's a few modes of gameplay, there's a
practice round where you can just race a round for fun, and
there's tournament mode where you get to go on a tournament
of several races where whoever has the most cash at the end
of it wins, plus the game's a blast to play in multiplayer.
Overall: 8: The game is really fun to play, fans of the Road
Rash series will love this game which is very unique.
