…But my skills are lacking!

Two years ago at E3 I first saw Tony Hawk Ride. I was really sold on it, even with its $150 price tag. I pre-ordered it and awaited its release. As its release approached, between its price tag and eventual reviews I decided against taking the plunge at that time. Even in spite of the reviews I still has a desire to try the game and live my skateboarder fantasies. Since its release the price would steadily decline, yet the game would continue to clog retailer’s shelves. I held out for as long as I could, but this week when the price point finally hit the all-time low of $10, I couldn’t refuse, I finally brought Ride home.
First impression, I had a significant amount of trouble syncing the board. Apparently that has been a problem for some time, but eventually the 360 and the board did sync and I was off and running/skating.
What Tony Hawk Ride has taught me so far is that I have not much balance on a skateboard. Thankfully the board has no wheels or I may face a serious injury! I found the game to be pretty fun, the board appears to respond to my movements (most of the time). I even build up a sweat while wrestling with the board.
At the end of the day I did finally get the game that I wanted at a price I would be willing to pay…and I am glad I did not have to pay more than that.
