Tony Hawk's American Sk8land review

  • Feels like its bigger brothers
  • Drawing your own deck
  • Wi-Fi support
  • Tiny buttons make combos tough
  • Kinda sluggish
  • Touch screen moves aren't so hot

Well, maybe not quite enough thought went into Sk8land after all: tiny DS buttons make tight and efficient combos downright painful, and unless you set your sights on buffing your skater’s speed stats from the get-go, the pokey pace of play will put you to sleep. Still, American Sk8land’s big-boy perks and authentic, satisfying feel make it the best Nintendo handheld offering of the franchise.
