First, I have to say that we are huge Tony Hawk fans. I remember him from back in the day. However, before we got to try out this awesome new game of his — we got to meet him:
Since that day, we have been anxiously awaiting our turn to try out Tony Hawk Shred. Let me tell you — this game does not disappoint. This is truly a family game! Now, if you've played some of the other Tony Hawk games, the younger kids sometimes had a lot of problems with it. However, Shred was created for a younger audience, so this should no longer be a problem. My 6 year old (Madison) can play this without any problems. The best part is that you use a skateboard deck when you play, so there is no having to remember 14 hand combinations to “go big”. Plus, mom can learn to skateboard again without the neighbors watching (it's been a while since mom or dad have been on a skateboard). With coin-op, arcade style gameplay and pro athletes, including Chaz Ortiz, Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins, Travis Rice, Torah Bright, and the godfather of skateboarding himself, Tony Hawk, SHRED is packed to the brim with larger-than-life moments, huge jumps and gaps, incredibly steep drops and descents, and a veritable goody bag’s worth of motion activated, jaw-dropping tricks. It is hard not to get lost in this game — it's that good.
However, what surprised me most in this game is that they included snowboarding! You can feel the ultimate rush as they shred down steep mountain peaks, launching off huge kickers and pulling off crazy spins, flips and grabs! Featuring pro riders Travis Rice – 2009 X-Games Gold Medal winner, Louie Vito – 2010 Euro X-Games Bronze Medal winner, and Torah Bright – 2010 Winter Olympic Gold Medal winner, kids can jump on SHRED’s board controller and go crazy in a whole new way, performing the biggest snow tricks imaginable in iconic frosty locations like Whistler Mountain, the French Alps and Beijing. Madison wants to know when we are going to do this in real life now! (Thanks Tony!)
