STAFF REVIEW of Aggressive Inline (Xbox)

Aggressive Inline Box art Let's cut to the chase, If you like and own THPS3, save yourself $50 because outside of a few new wrinkles this game has been done before. AI is fun just like all the others, this time your on in-line skates. Huge and detailed levels, objectives galore, and a complex trick system (That will chase away any newbies to this genre)Another nice looking game that suffers from "Been there, Done that."


The appeal of AI is if you have never owned or played any of the other "Skating" games that came out before. The levels are big and complex, if you can see it, you can grind it. You just have to figure out how to get there in the 1st place. The game is ; based, talk to NP's and other objects to get a new mission. You can boost your charecter stats by dooing specific moves over and over again. ie, Keep grinding all over the place and you get better at grinding. You health as it were, is measured bya "Juice" bar. If you keep pullijng off tricks your bar will stay full, just skate around doing nothing and it will start to deplete itself. Power ups are available all over the levels, and you can find hidden objects such as "Keys" to open locked areas within a given map. Again, alot of fun on it's own, but it's just been done so many times before. The game has lasting appeal if you havn't played games like it before.


Visually the game is pretty solid. The lwvwls are detailed and vast. The charecters have great range of motion. The only annoying thing is the "Rubber ball" effect your charecter has when hitting a wall or corner...you come flying out like a rubber ball bouncing off the surface. An occasional camera problem, nothing remotlly problematic. All in all very nice.


Soundtrack is great, with the works of some of todays biggest bands. The addition of custom tracks was great, but next to impossible to locate without the manual. Again, been done before.


Suggestions:
Find something fresh and creative in the next game. "Xtreme" has run it's course in my opinion.


Overall: 6.0 / 10
