STAFF REVIEW of Aggressive Inline (Xbox)

Aggressive Inline Box art Agressive Inline is an awesome 2-player inline skating game akin to Tony Hawk. If you're a fan of the genre you won't be disappointed in this game. This game can definately hold its own. All the pieces are here including: tight control, nice graphics, a killer soundtrack, and even a level editor. Aggressive Inline is, bar none, a solid title.

The gameplay in Aggressive Inline is tight and responsive. All the tricks and grinds you'd expect from this type of game are all present. The game begins with a tutorial that will help familiarize you with the controls. Quickly, you'll be wallriding and vaulting over everything, just as if you'd been playing for hours. The only real gripe I had about the controls were that it was just way too easy to go into a manual. This isn't exactly a good thing...allow me to explain. This caused me to wipe out more than on one occassion...okay, several dozen, but, who's counting? ;) This is only a minor annoyance and really doesn't detract from the fun of the game. The addition of a bail button was also a nice touch. It will save you from eating pavement a me. The game is devised of many different modes (i.e. Career, 2 player, freeskate, etc...). The level editor is also nice, especially if you get bored with the other modes or levels all you have to do is create your own.

Speaking of levels, Aggressive Inline has a plethora of differently themed worlds for you to skate through. A movie studio, and a car factor, to name a couple. The XBox even boasts a bonus level (The Zoo) as an added feature to it's release. Overall, I think this is a well balanced game that would be a fine addition to any XBox owner's action game library.

The graphics in this game are average for an XBox title. This is a port of a PS2 game, so the framerate is spot on since the XBox boasts of a powerful processor. It runs at a constant 60 fps. The character models are well detailed and resemble their real life counter-parts distinctly. The levels are filled with little graphical touches like ghosts in the graveyard and people who populate the street. The size of some of these levels are absolutely enormous. Sometimes you can see far off into the distance of what is to come. Overall, it looks a little cleaner than the PS2 version probably due to a few brushups and the smooth processing power of the green X.

All of the sounds and effects that you would expect are here. From grinding to wall rides, everything sounds nice. The voice acting is average. It's certainly not the worst I've ever heard, but, it could use some improvement. The game is accompanied by a stellar soundtrack, but, if punk rock isn't your perverbial cup of java, never fear my eight-wheeled friends, you can create your own soundtrack from your compact disc music library by simply copying your favorite tracks to the XBox hard-drive.

You guys created a very fun title. The only real suggestion I have is that, maybe in the next installment, you make manuals and wallrides a little more "user friendly". Other than that, this game is a blast and I definately recommend this game for any action junkie.

Overall: 8.0 / 10
Gameplay: 8.0 / 10
Visuals: 7.0 / 10
Sound: 8.0 / 10
