Skate It - review

A portion of an Aeropause review…

It is unfortunate that a lot of design and control flaws take down Skate It from a must have Wii title. There is a surprisingly long and challenging single player mode, that gives the player tons of things to do in the world. But when you cannot control any of that action in a stable manner, Skate It ends up eating concrete after a bad grind.

‘Second-Hand Memories’

Finally, someone is talking about what I’ve been thinking! I’ve said time and time again that I love the retail experience. I love going to my local game store to buy games, but that’s not all.

I think they are really important when it comes to forming your gaming personality.

Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip - review

A portion of a bit-tech review..

Ubisoft has tried to spice things up a bit in the snowboarding genre by bringing an impressive engine and open-world approach to the table, but unfortunately when it comes to sports games it’s always far, far better to have some exciting linear courses rather than poorly mapped white expanses.
