The arrival of Tony Hawk: Ride, and its subsequent panning by the press (except the first couple of reviews, but that's a rant for another day), tell us a lot about the problems that it can bring. I should preface this by saying that it's not my intention to criticise the developers of Tony Hawk: Ride. In fact, I have a lot of sympathy for them, given the nature of the challenge they were up against.
From an end-user perspective, the main challenge is that skateboarding is hard."
