WorthPlaying Review - 'Skate City Heroes'

WP writes: "The wild success of Wii Fit not only showed game publishers and developers that people were willing to have a video game encourage them to exercise, but it also showed them that there is a huge market of people who are interested in using the Wii Balance Board if/when their fascination with the Nintendo-produced game would expire. Aside from We Ski, however, no one was really developed for the new peripheral. It wasn't until the prior E3, when Shaun White Snowboarding: Road Trip was demoed for the press, that developers finally started announcing plans to develop for the Wii Balance Board. Naturally, the initial wave of titles that supported the board were all exercise-related. Some publishers, however, followed in the footsteps of Ubisoft and made the board a new controller for extreme sports games. Zoo Games is one of those publishers, and with their latest title, Skate City Heroes, they try to use both the board and the Wiimote/Nunchuk combination to give the player a more involving control experience. The result is a game that isn't much of a looker but is very fun to play."
