User reviews for AirBlade
7.0 / 10Combined Score
Well, I played this game in hopes that it would take a new twist for the Skating games. it does not have good control, the exaggerated physics of the hoverboard (called a, you guessed it, Airblade)are terrible. goals that require you to maneuver narrow ledges are impossible to pull off if you are unable to grind becuase the board sends you drifting for what seems like forever. The goals aren't repetetive, just dumb. If you grind a rail on the side of a tank, it explodes; if you grind around a satellite dish, it explodes; do you see a pattern here? The worst part about this game is they trined to give it a story. You are a group of teens in a futuristic city that is controlled by an evil organization (this plot is getting old fast). One of your friends is working as an insider for this organization in the lab. he builds an airblade, and when the organization finds out about this...
We've all seen it in titles such as 'Back to the future', and now we can do it! Its great the makers never just made it a racing game or somting like that. Doing tricks on hoverboards is so much more fun!
The gameplay is great too, once you practice and play through the game you'll find its possible do grind, swing and trick to perform combos of maybe 70x, or in some cases you can find routes that loop making it possible to get hundreds of trick combos.
The graphics are good, but not great. Could of had more work. The audio was quite poor in my opinion, but gameplay made up for that in most cases.
I realy think its dumb when companys make such good games but dont think of the story until the last minute. As in this case. I think the story should be the base of a game. Criterion Studios obviously dont.
little difficult, some moves are near impossible to pull off
well this game is really for skateboard nuts, thats all the game really is, tony hawks minuse the wheels and replaced with a hover board, you can grab onto lamp posts and bars but you can only spin around on them, its also cool to grab onto vehicles to hitch a ride, the longer you hold on the more points you rack up, it is difficult though because the vehicle speeds up a lot, good game but only buy it if your serious about skating
