Atomic Gamer writes: "Last year around this time, when the usual glut of high-profile holiday releases were piling up, I found myself-of all unexpected places-perched atop my Wii Balance Board. I'd received copies of Shaun White: Road Trip and Skate It, and thought "What the hell?" Both games, as it turned out, made surprisingly excellent use of the Wii's weight-loss peripheral, and engaged me more than any previous extreme sports titles. Now, this should probably tell you that I'm, by no stretch of the imagination, an enthusiast of this particular genre. It also probably explains why I had a pretty good time making a jackass of myself with Activision's latest peripheral-bundled offering Tony Hawk: RIDE."
