EA decided instead of simply porting Skate to the Wii, to build things from the ground up with Skate It. Some things such as the graphics don't work, but the overall control scheme works well. The balance board needs some tweaking, but that doesn't get in the way of a very good skateboarding game. Hopefully with Skate It 2 problems with the balance board, stairs, and graphics will be improved. Once those things get fixed you'll have a fantastic game on your hands.
