The One (Feb, 1989)
If Skate Or Die has one weak point, it's sound. PC sound is rarely up to much, and the programmers haven't helped by composing several irritating scores (ironic considering Ron Hubbard wrote the C64 originals). Fortunately there's a sound toggle and the game actually plays a lot better in silence. A pleasantly playable package providing plenty of punch.
It has been a long time coming onto the PC and unless you're a younger PC owner or are really into the skateboard scene, you'll find it lacks variety and depth. The ability to play with up to seven friend bumps up its rating a little.
