...that the camera is terrible if you played the demo.

I played the demo today and it's true, camera is very bad, we can't change the view point, but all other stuff, gameplay and graphics are very very good.

I thought it was ok, it's meant to be like that, like you're being followed by someone with a camera for promotional shots etc.

Been one of two favourite demos in the last few months, bioshock being the other.

In my personal opinion, I thought this game was sub-par. I know it's not far to compare, but this game is NO Tony Hawk. I'm not talking about American Wasteland or anything like that, but the old school Tony Hawk games that actually peaked my interest.

With that said, I like the innovation behind performing tricks. It actually provides a bit of challenge as compared to other skate games. I had quite a hard time doing a simple kickflip, into a grab, into a grind.

That's just my opinion on it though
