I got it about 4 or 5 months ago and haven't stopped playing it since i got it. Feels more like skating to me than tony hawk. it's cool to just ride around and flip to rails. Actually, it's been about 6 years since i've skated and this game made me want to pick up my board again (i'm so rusty). I like that it's not quite a sim ,but not as ridiculous as the tony hawk games. I haven't been into a skating game this much since THPS2 but then again i only played that through once and i got tired of it pretty quick.
