With killer graphics and animation, an awesome soundtrack, and gripping game play, Aggressive Inline sucks you in and never lets go. I usually recommend a game of this nature to extreme sports fans only. But after my week-long venture with this game, you “baseball and football only” gamers need to take a good long look at this game and you need to do it now. The way I see it, we have a new king of next-gen skaters.

Aggressive Inline is about as close to perfection as it gets and pretty much annihilates everything currently available in the genre. The gameplay is simple yet complex and quite addictive. The levels are so large they border on intimidating, yet it never gets dull exploring them thoroughly. And with a dozen skaters, hundreds of tricks, and infinite combinations of trick lines and combos, this is one of those rare games that has no end. Sure you can “complete” it, but you will never “finish” it.

It’s not hard to see why a lot of the print mags are saying this game is a THPS beater, because the levels are huge – varied and have enough on them to keep you occupied for hours. Find all the juice boxes on a level and a cheat will be given to you, another reason why it’s important to keep playing and rolling, rolling, rolling on. So in conclusion I’d like to thank Acclaim for bringing us this game and proving to me that life does not begin and end with SSX Tricky or Tony Hawks.

PlayStation 2Gaming Target
While most extreme games are already getting a bit long in the tooth (though I admit THPS 4 looks to change that, hopefully), Aggressive Inline not only does something different, it does something to surpass anything else out there. The game simply does everything right in the gameplay department, and creates a fully enjoyable game that can become so addictive that you might forget pee breaks and sleeping. It’s a fairly large game that needs many hours just to complete the game with one character, so settle in for a very lengthy playing experience. Anyone bored of Tony Hawk should give this one a try – because Aggressive Inline is as good of a sleeper hit as there possibly can be.

Aggressive Inline is a must-have game. I know that fall is just around the corner, and that most of you will be going back to school soon, but before most of your free time is taken away, buy Aggressive Inline. Anyone who likes Tony Hawk or any of its clones will love this game. Even if you've never played an extreme sports game before, give this one a shot.

All the right elements that make a great extreme sports title is present in Aggressive Inline and with hundreds of challenges and plenty of levels this is an investment worth the price of admission.

Aggressive Inline is definitely as good as any title in the extreme sports genre at the moment. The game is huge in scale (and there is a Park Editor to create your own levels if you eventually get bored), entertaining to play, a delight to control and difficult to put down. With the fourth instalment of the THPS series in the works Z-Axis have thrown down the gauntlet to Neversoft with Aggressive Inline and that can only be good news for fans of the genre.

Aggressive Inline does what no one expected and that is dethroning Activision’s Pro Skater franchise as the best in the extreme sports genre. Of course if it weren’t for Tony this game would not even exist but sorry Tony “Trix are for kids!” err… wait, wrong cereal. If you love the Tony Hawk games then go buy Aggressive Inline this very moment, it’s worth every penny.

PlayStation 2IGN
While Tony Hawk and SSX have ruled the PlayStation 2 roost, the time has come for a new challenger, and Aggressive Inline is ripped, buffed, and ready for the fight. Aggressive Inline is deep, layered, and dense with stuff to do, and it's backed up with an enormously thick network of lines on which to shred.
93
PlayStation 2PSX Extreme
After spending much time in front of the screen with Aggressive Inline, I can safely say that this is (along side SSX) is easily Tony Hawk's biggest challenge. It may very well be that by the second 'Inline title, we may see Tony Hawk dethroned. Visually it's not jaw dropping, but it gets the job done and looks fine. The game plays superbly well, otherwise I wouldn't be giving it this glowing review. The modes of play and career mode are incredibly good, not to mention diverse and one of a kind. And while the soundtrack disappoints, the rest of the game is a dream come true, especially for me. Extreme sports fans, and all inline skaters, I urge every last one of you to purchase Aggressive Inline right this very moment!

So is it better than Tony Hawks? Well yes and no. It will take you longer to complete a single character - a LOT longer - but once you've finished everything with one there is nothing left to unlock, and therefore no point in going back and completing it with the others except to try out the unlocked special characters and the cheat codes tucked away in there. The graphics are less impressive but more bubbly, and the levels are considerably more impressive but also a bugger to find your way around at times. It's an excellent game but in the end you pay your money and take your choice!

PlayStation 2Atomic Gamer
While the soundtrack is a bit disappointing, that's about the worst thing I could find with this game. It's got some hilarious moments, great ways to do lots of tricks, huge levels, and a tight control scheme. There's not much more you could hope for.
92
GameCubeGameSpy
There's plenty to do in Aggressive Inline and it's done better than in any extreme sports game before it. The massive levels provide a vast variety of objectives to complete, the combo-driven gameplay is tight and responsive, the multitude of dynamic environments is a breath of fresh air, and there are plenty of hidden secrets to discover. If you could never figure out what the big deal was with the Tony Hawk franchise it won't convert you, but those looking for their next extreme sports fix will be rewarded with the best the genre has to offer.

XboxGameSpy
Aggressive Inline raises the bar for the entire extreme sports genre. Huge levels, stunning graphics, and novel gameplay innovations mean that no future extreme title will be able to get away with a couple of bowls, a rail, and a handful of challenges. If your extreme gaming is becoming extremely predictable and tired, it might be time to lace up these skates.

PlayStation 2Game Over Online
Aggressive Inline innovates on the established dynamics that Tony Hawk created and manages to dethrone THPS3 in more than a few areas. The RPG-based experience system, for example, and the ability to land vert-tricks on flat ground straight-up rocks. What else? Let's see, the crazy grind-maneuvers feel like a mix between Jet Set Radio Future and the best of Tony Hawk 3, the ability to swing on poles has to be seen to be believed, and the juice-meter is a stroke of genius. In short, Aggressive Inline will more than tide-over gamers until Tony Hawk 4 is released.

Nach Jahren einsamer Dominanz hat Tony Hawk endlich jemanden gefunden, der mit ihm auf dem Genre-Thron Platz nimmt. Im Wesentlichen zwar nichts weltbewegend Neues, kann Aggressive Inline vor allem mit dem fehlenden Zeitlimit und der einfachen Steuerung gewaltig Punkte einheimsen und die Motivation auf einem extrem hohen Level halten. Grafik und Sound befinden sich ebenfalls auf einem hohen Niveau und sollten jeden Genre-Fan auf Anhieb begeistern können. Einzig die Multiplayermodi bleiben etwas hinter den Erwartungen zurück, sind aber immer wieder für ein Spielchen gut. Glückwunsch an Acclaim und Z-Axis, die nach den immer nur zweite Geige spielenden Dave Mirra-Strampeleien endlich ein Spiel produziert haben, das der Tony Hawk-Serie mehr als ebenbürtig ist.

Dieser Titel verdient eindeutig einen Hitstempel und hat das Zeug zum absoluten Verkaufsschlager. Obwohl es in Sachen Verkaufszahlen Tony Hawk wahrscheinlich nicht so schnell überholen dürfte, steht der Aggressive Inline-Serie eine viel versprechende Zukunft bevor und ich glaube nicht, dass wir das letzte Mal von ihr gehört haben.

Auch auf der Xbox verliert Aggressive Inline nichts von seiner Faszination und schafft es locker, Tony Hawk abzuhängen. Die Grafik ist schlichtweg die momentan beste im Genre, der Wegfall des Zeitlimits ein gewaltiger Motivationsschub und die großen Levels mit Aufgaben nur so gespickt. Dass die Steuerung in einigen Momenten einen Hang zur Übersensibilität hat, ist zwar unglücklich, schadet dem Spielspaß aber nur anfänglich, da man sich nach einigen Runden auf dem Parcours daran gewöhnt hat. Wer auch nur ansatzweise mit dieser Art von Spiel etwas anzufangen weiß, sollte sich schnellstens seine Skates anlegen und den Händler seines Vertrauens mit einem Besuch beehren.

If you love the extreme sports genre, this game is an absolute must. It's a ton of fun and will suck away so many hours all your friends will think you've died. Unless you don't have friends and then no one will notice except your dog who really needs to go walkies. Though the gameplay in is a little bit better than Hawk the little things AI is missing keep it from getting a higher mark.

When it comes to extreme sports freestyle videogames, there is Tony Hawk's Pro Skater and then there is everything else. Or at least that's the way it's always been. But development studio Z-Axis, which delivered a formidable entry into the genre with its Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 has refused to be labeled second best and its latest effort may have finally succeeded in dethroning Activision's now-classic series.

PlayStation 2Adrenaline Vault, The (AVault)
It may have a generic-sounding name, but this inline skating game is anything but ordinary. The environments are enormous, chock full of creative details, and extremely interactive. The clear focus on fun over realism really makes this title stand out, and while the trick system may not be as deep as that of the competition, the focus on exploration and humor is a welcome alternative to hardcore combo dialing. However, don’t assume it’s a pushover; the career mode should still satisfy the hardcore set, but amazingly, it also welcomes all other players, too. This is one that you’ll always be coming back to, and even if you don’t normally grok the whole “extreme sports” thing, you should still seek out Aggressive Inline.

Wer einen weiteren Klon der Tony Hawk-Reihe erwartet, liegt hier falsch. Aggressive Inline bietet viele Innovationen und bringt somit einen frischen Wind ins Genre der Extremsport Games. Die riesigen Levels, das Fehlen einer Uhr und auch das dynamische Verbessern seines Charakters können für sehr lange Zeit motivieren. Kleinere Mängel wie das Fehlen einer "Create-A-Skater"-Funktion, oder die fehlende Integration eigener Soundtracks können angesichts der vielen Pluspunkte locker verkraftet werden. Obwohl der König Tony Hawks Pro Skater 3 nicht ganz von seinem Thron verdrängt werden kann, ist Aggressive Inline mehr als nur ein Lückenfüller bis zu dessen viertem Ableger. Fans von Extremsportspielen, greift zu!

PlayStation 2Electric Playground
Engaging, fun and beautiful, Aggressive Inline hits it right on almost every note. More the pinnacle of innovation for this genre than a revolutionary new development, the game nevertheless feels like uncharted territory just begging for exploration, even though there's nothing here you haven't seen in every other extreme alternative. It's both a testament to the care lavished upon this project, and an important reminder: One need not always shoot for the stars...sometimes, just aiming for the sky is more than enough.

Auch auf dem GameCube hat sich Aggressive Inline den Award redlich verdient. Die im Vergleich zu den anderen Systemen schwächere Grafik wird durch das gewohnt gute Gameplay und den hohen Motivationsfaktor schnell kompensiert und lockt die Spieler immer wieder ans Pad. Insofern sollte jeder, der sich nur ansatzweise mit dem Genre anfreunden kann, schleunigst auf den Weg machen und das Spiel seiner Sammlung hinzufügen. Wer allerdings auch eine PS2 oder Xbox zu Hause stehen hat, wird auf Grund der Grafik-Mankos wahrscheinlich eher zu einer der anderen Versionen neigen. Doch trotz allem übernimmt Aggressive Inline auch auf dem GameCube den Spitzenplatz - auch wenn der Abstand zu Tony Hawk 3 nicht so groß ist wie bei den anderen Mitgliedern der Familie.

'Aggressive Inline' kam, sah und siegte. Selten konnte ein Spiel, um das im Vorfeld so wenig Rummel gemacht wurde, derart überzeugen wie Acclaims neuester Trendsporttitel. Die positiven Aspekte des Spiels beginnen bei der, vor allem für Genreliebhaber, schnell erlernbaren Steuerung und den riesigen Arealen, mit denen ihr es zu tun bekommt, und ziehen sich bis hin zu einigen völlig neuen Features, die frischen Wind ins Genre bringen. Beispielsweise dürfen sich die virtuellen Inline-Skater an herumfahrende Autos hängen oder an Stangen im Kreis schwingen. Vor allem für Einsteiger eignet sich 'Aggressive Inline' hervorragend, um erste Schritte zu wagen, da der Schwierigkeitsgrad recht niedrig angesetzt ist und nur langsam ansteigt. Und auch wenn fortgeschrittene Spieler durch die relativ magere Anzahl an Tricks oder die Tatsache, dass alle Charaktere über dasselbe Repertoire verfügen, abgeschreckt werden könnten, sollten auch diese getrost zugreifen.

PlayStation 2Cheat Code Central
In the end, Agg Inline is a lot like the games that have come before it, but it's the little changes that set it apart, actually improving the entire genre. There are aspects of Agg Inline that I'd like to see adopted in every Xtreme sports game, but of course, that would be stealing; unless of course it was a Z-Axis game. If you think Agg Inline might not be your cup of tea because it doesn't feature BMX bikes or skateboards, think again. This is simply a great game that you won't beat in a weekend.

The best part of Aggressive Inline, however, is the simple controls that enable you to pull off tons of grabs, grinds, vaults, swings, and flips. Aggressive Inline is remarkable on any platform, and playing it on the GameCube is no exception.

XboxGamePro (US)
Aggressive Inline doesn’t just offer stuff to do, but stuff to figure out. In between all the death-defying skating stunts, you’ll solve some tricky puzzles and challenges that offer a real sense of accomplishment, not to mention some unusual trick lines. Pro riders, licensed gear, and extremely large but dense indoor/outdoor levels (including an exclusive Xbox zoo) give the game a sense of scope and realism. You’ll discover tons of trick lines on every level, plus a few innovations you won’t find in other games (such as swinging around poles). There’s a nice tutorial, but if you’re familiar with action sports games at all, the controls will feel comfortable immediately.

There is no doubt that skate fans will praise the Gaming Gods for bringing them a great game and Aggressive Inline is just one of those games worthy of praise. With all the right elements that make an incredible skating experience--including great graphics and decent controls--this is a game that should be in any sport’s fans library.

PlayStation 2GamePro (US)
While it may not have a legendary name like Tony Hawk behind it, Aggressive Inline does have an addictive and creative gameplay style that everyone can enjoy. Aside from the usual jump-trick combo gameplay, Inline contains innovative character actions that make virtual roller skating even more enjoyable to play. Moreover, the control scheme is simple to learn, easy to execute, and fun to master.

Anfangs war ich skeptisch, ob Aggressive Inline mit meinem bisherigen Trendsport-Liebling Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 mithalten kann. Nach ausgiebiger Testsession lautet mein Urteil: Aggressive Inline hält mit dem bisherigen Genre-Primus nicht nur mit, es ist schlichtweg besser! Das liegt vor allem an dem Ideenreichtum innerhalb der gigantischen Abschnitte, der euch immer wieder aufs Neue überrascht. Die Aufträge sprühen nur so vor Witz und motivieren ungemein. Hinzu kommt eine tadellose Präsentation - vom verzeihbaren Kantenflimmern mal abgesehen - und die durchdachte Steuerung, die das Spielen zum Dauergenuss macht. Auch im Multiplayer-Modus bietet Acclaims Inline-Spektakel Spielspaß pur. Wer sich auch nur im Entferntesten für Trendsport-Titel interessiert, muss zugreifen - besser geht's fast nicht!

PlayStation 2Gameswelt
Was zunächst wie ein weiterer der zahlreichen 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater'-Klon daherkommt, hat es ganz faustdick hinter den Ohren. Tatsächlich haben es die Entwickler von 'Aggressive Inline' geschafft, bewährte Gameplay-Strukturen zu übernehmen und mit überzeugenden innovativen Neuerungen wie dem Wegfallen des Zeitlimits zu verbessern. Ein besonderes Highlight neben der gekonnten Umsetzung von Inline-Skate-Besonderheiten sind aber die riesigen Levels, die einem mit den zahlreichen durchaus anspruchsvollen Aufgaben für viele Stunden beschäftigen wird. Einzig die geringe Anzahl an Tricks und einige kleine visuelle Mängeln sorgen dafür, dass es Acclaim nicht ganz gelingt, Genre-König 'Tony Hawk' vom Thron zu stoßen, auch wenn 'Aggressive Inline' gefährlich nahe rankommt. Trotzdem ist dieses Spiel nicht nur für Trendsportfans zu empfehlen – diese müssen ohnehin zugreifen.

GameCubeNetjak
Overall the game is completely rewarding and it's the little things that make the game so darn satisfying. Aggressive Inline is truly a breath of fresh air for the gaming community and shouldn't go unnoticed. At least this is a rental, but I highly recommend a full purchase here. The game is just all out fun. With seemingly endless combos and tricks, the game will surely go the distance. Add in a friend and the game goes to a whole new level.

I have nothing but praise for Aggressive Inline, as it's possibly one of the more underrated games made for this great console, of ours. But possibly those who rated it poorly saw the glitches from a worse angle than myself, but this is certainly an essential title if you're not a fan of Tony Hawk.

Die Entwicklerstube Z-Axis, welche sich schon mit den beiden 'Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX'-Teile einen Namen unter den Trendsport-Fans machen konnte, sorgt nun auch mit 'Aggressive Inline' für Aufsehen. Verrückte Tricks auf abgefahrenen riesigen Locations sorgen für Unterhaltung pur und lassen immer wieder Action aufkommen. Daneben weiß der Titel durch die gelungene Optik und die geschmeidigen Bewegungen der Charaktere zu gefallen. Für richtige Stimmung sorgt dann schlussendlich noch die perfekt gewählte Hintergrundmusik, welche mitunter für Motivation seitens des Spielers sorgt. Der Titel eignet sich für eine schnelle Runde Skaten zwischendurch, nächtelanges Spielen, aber auch für spaßige Stunden zu zweit im Mehrspielermodus. Wer sich also von Trendsportarten angezogen fühlt, sollte 'Aggressive Inline' keinesfalls verpassen.

Neversoft had teamed up with Activision to deliver Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, which eschewed skateboarding realism for fast, well-defined gameplay. And California-based Z-Axis had teamed up with Rockstar Games to develop a skateboarding game of their own, called Thrasher: Skate and Destroy. Thrasher had a similar goal-based, time-limited structure, but the gameplay and control were far more rooted in reality. Needless to say, the Tony Hawk series blew up and spawned an entire line of similar products for Activision. Z-Axis blossomed on its own, moving from Rockstar to Acclaim and moving from skateboarding to BMX biking by developing the deeper-than-most Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX series. Now, after a few years of moderate success, Z-Axis and Acclaim have branched out to inline skating with Aggressive Inline, an excellent game that both borrows from previous alternative sports games and sets out in a new direction that will more than likely be copied by future games.

Aggressiivisessa luistelussa ei ole kitinän arvoisia puutteita. Z-Axisin rullailu kerää tyynesti kikkailupelien hyvät ideat samaan pakettiin, mutta ei mullista tai edes vatkaa genreä millään saralla. Aggressive Inline on joka tapauksessa pakkohankinta temppupelifanille.

All in all, this game has everything, but some problems do exist. There are some minor glitches that need tweaking, like when you find your skater standing sideways on something. Minor, yes, but it still could have been fixed. Multiplayer modes are creative, such as a form of skater blackjack and animal hunts throughout certain levels. Z-Axis has done a fine job in this game, and I rather enjoyed myself playing it.

And as long as we're talking about what's definite, let's get right down to the concluding fact: this game belongs in your collection if you're looking for another good extreme skater and the release of Tony's next game seems too distant. Aggressive Inline is a stellar package worth the $50 you'll likely have to spend to make it yours. It's highly recommended at that price, and the recommendation only grows stronger the lower the price goes. Hopefully, we'll get to see a sequel.

Aggressive Inline is a well-made intelligently constructed stunt game that shows imagination and craft.

Aggressive Inline has made it to several of the Next Generation systems with some success. Though the control functions are different on the X-Box due to the way that the controller is built, the fun is still there no matter which of the versions that you’re playing. The amount of tricks and the sheer size of the stages should be enough for anyone to sink their teeth into while waiting for another extreme sports game to appear on the market. As it has been said before, you really don’t need a copy of this game if you already have it on another system such as the PS2 or the Game Cube. If you like the inline skating world and you like to score huge points with some pretty amazing tricks, then Aggressive Inline is your game no matter what system you find it on!

XboxXBox Solution (XBS)
Overall I found the game fun, there are a few unlockable characters and FMV sequences, but just not on the level of Tony Hawk or Dave Mirra BMX. I guess it’s because I just don’t think having wheels attached to your feet is as balls to the wall as skateboarding or BMX. I had fun playing it for the first 2 hours, but my interest went downhill (pun intended!) after that. Some of you will love it, others hate it, but that is the way with gaming today!

If you’re an extreme sports fan you’ll love this game and should consider buying it even if you have a game from the genre. If you’re new to extreme sports games then this should be your first choice over the others, as it’s great for beginners and pros alike with challenges varying in difficulty. It has a pick up and play attitude but also can be played for long stints. The game has one real downside; it takes up a whole standard memory card (59), so you’ll need to fork out for a new one just for the game. This is a small price to pay for a worth experience.

So, Aggressive Inline's no Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, but it's got some solid gameplay and a lot of visual flair. In fact, it's the best of the Hawk's wannabes. You'll certainly get your money's worth in terms of challenges, unlockable secrets and extras, too. Short of using the trike, the unicycle and the penny-farthing, that's all the extreme sports done now, right? Can we have a break, then? No? Damn.

GameCubeChrist Centered Game Reviews
The levels are HUGE. Besides what is available from the start, there is also hidden areas that hold the secrets of the level, such as Dr. Frankie's Lab in the Movie Lot level. Oftentimes there will be 25 or more mission objectives to complete before a level is done, and that is besides the powerups. Perhaps the most amazing part of the game is the arcade-like feel to it. You are equipped with a juice bar, a health meter of sorts, that tells you your power and your speed. If you crash, besides shedding a little , you also lose a little off your meter, making it in your best interest NOT to crash.

XboxGameCell UK
The levels are huge, similar in size to Dave Mirra 2 but with a lot more to interact with, you can swing from poles to reach higher places and talking to people opens up plenty of challenges to keep you busy - completing every level in AI will take you an age, whether it'll keep you interested that long is the problem.

XboxPro-G
The main innovation in Aggressive Inline is the juice meter. Just as in Tony Hawk's, Aggressive Inline features a meter that fills up as you perform tricks. When it is full your top speed increases and your special tricks become available. This all sounds very Tony Hawk's-like, but the difference comes from a lack of time limit. In Aggressive Inline you can continue in the environment until your juice meter runs out, meaning that you can in theory skate forever.

The park builder is a nice, if notably tacked on feature and if the game has any flaw, it's that the action, as with most sport titles, can become mundane, tedious and repetitive despite the effort to throw in extended variation with an ample supply of over the top and varied challenges. Yet, even if you're not into what seems to be an extreme sports revolution these days with the media almost screaming alternative sports into our ears as the increasingly less rare sport of extreme inline skating becomes ever more popular you'll still find Aggressive Inline to be a solid, well crafted and rewarding game. Next to Hawk, it's the best extreme sports title on the Xbox.
