My 8-year-old daughter and her friend along with my 5-year-old daughter recently spent an entire evening perfecting their skateboard skills on the new sports video game, Tony Hawk: Shred for Wii.
This game comes with a pretty slick looking board that interacts with the Wii which in and of itself is really cool. Skateboard master Tony Hawk himself talks you through moves as you first learn the game. Set up takes a while but once they got through the initial tutorials my girls were taking off with this game and having a blast. The backgrounds to the different courses are cool and the game features rockin’ background music.
Key Game Features:
- No complicated button controls to master. Just step on to SHRED through awesome modes including Trick, Point Rush, and Challenge!
- Clear huge gaps, perform over-the-top tricks during massive drops, and ride out roller coaster grinds!
- Feel the rush as you speed down mountain peaks filled with breathtaking big airs, crazy spins, and incredible flips in snowboarding mode! We haven’t tried snowboarding as much as skateboarding, but I can’t wait to try it this winter.
Tony Hawk: Shred for Wii would make a great Christmas gift, even for sporty girls like mine, and is currently on sale at Amazon for $49.99 (regularly priced $79.99).
