Anyone else been playin this demo as much as I have?? What a game. Totally improves what the tony hawk series started. Such an intuitive control scheme. And it's from EA too, which has really caught me off guard. Really looking forward to this one this week. Though it was kinda weird that the release date is September 13, instead of September 11th.... Anyone have any tips on kickflipping into and out of manuals? that has totally been driving me nuts. gotta love the challenge aspect involved though, as it's so much more realistic. i've skated for many years, and its nice to have to do more than press a button or two to pull of a crazy combo (flip trick - to grind - to flip trick - to grind....) makes the most simple of things so much more satisfying. really excited about this one. makes me hopeful that someone will eventually do something this intuitively refreshing with the wii controller.
