MTV Skateboarding featuring Andy MacDonald is a top quality skateboarding simulation. Skateboarding is an exciting and exhilarating sport and those are perhaps the two important elements to capture when translating the sport into a video game. MTV Skateboarding does just that and more. Now you don’t need to practice solidly for several years to skate like a pro. If you are a skater who hates the rain, the weather is no longer a problem because you can now become a skateboarding genius in the comfort of your own armchair.

In case you don’t know, Andy MacDonald is one of the most influential skateboarders of the last decade. Not only does he skate both vert ramp and street, and has no less than five X-games gold medals under his belt. There are 14 professional skaters to choose from as well as an additional 16 fictional boarders. There are a massive amount of tricks on offer in this game, all of which need to be mastered to gain the highest scoring combos. The harder you try and push your skater, the more challenging the game becomes. It’s all part of the learning process.

Thanks to the good old PC architecture and accompanying monitor, players can enjoy sharp, detailed, high-resolution visuals, provided they have an adequate machine and graphics card. The developers have focused greatly on realism for this release, and the PC version demonstrates their efforts brilliantly.

MTV Skateboarding has several different modes to keep you entertained. These include single-player, lifestyle, deathmatch, freeskate and finally, stunt mode. This variety of gameplay keeps the game fresh and gives it a longer lasting appeal. Also, the clothes and equipment in MTV Skateboarding are authentic due to the licensing deals secured with the top names in the business. Because MTV is involved in the making of this game you can expect the soundtrack to be kicking. Bands include Snapcase, Goldfinger, OPM, Deftones and Cypress Hill to name but a few. If skateboarding games are your bag, MTV Skateboarding warrants further investigation.
