In case you missed it, last year saw a revolution in video game skate boarding. So much so that the previous title holder, Activision's Tony Hawks, is yet to comprehensively respond. The premise was simple; make a game that brought the focus back to the skateboarding - rather than outfits, button combinations and complex mission structures."
