Strap those skates on, scoop that thrash, mind you don't get gravel rash, ride
those side walks, don't be lazy, everybody's.
Skate Crazy - 2 different games in one - the 'Car Park Challenge' AND the
'Skate Crazy Championship Course'
A double A-side computer game? Well that's what Gremlin's forthcoming rollerskating
sim looks like to us.
You get a choice of guiding hero Freddy around Side A's
multi-storey car park (viewed from the typical Skate or Die perspective) or Side
B's horizontally scrolling subways 'n' streets.
As with all these streetwise modes
of transport the object is not so much to get from A to B but to do so in style, and
the part of your anatomy most susceptible to bruising when you have a mishap is not
your bot but your ego.
Yup, credibility points are what you need to survive and
thrive in this game, so stay upright, pull as many groovy stunts as you can and enjoy.

A smart skate-about which is well worth a look.
