After each race, players can purchase new equipment such as new skates, pads, and the like. For its time, Skitchin' was an excellent spin-off of the Road Rash franchise, and the concept is altogether crazy. This is one title we'd love to see updated.
Through my experiences with Skitchin', the title has always been solid and provided a good time every gaming session. Whether it was ten years ago when it first came out, or recently, Skitchin' has never failed in its purpose to supply fun. I'm sure it won't fail for you, either.
Overall, Skitchin' is a fun and great game from the days when Electronic Arts actually seemed to be as determined to put smiles on people's faces as it was to make money. This is a fun game, but today's audience might find it a bit rough around the edges, especially after playing the later Road Rash games.
High Score
Vanebildande rullskridskospel med mycket action och många balla effekter.
Game Players
A racing game with an ultra-cool twist! You're racing on in-line skates and must grab the bumpers of passing cars to accelerate. If there are two of you on the same bumper, beat you opponent until he's road kill.

Eine ganze Weile macht es Spaß, aber auf Dauer wird‘s mangels Abwechslung oder sonstiger spielerischer Genialitäten ein bißchen öde.
Mega Fun
Man darf Skitchin‘ getrost als das dritte Spiel in der Road Rash-Tradition bezeichnen, denn trotz des anderen fahrbaren Untersatzes sind die spielerischen Parallelen deutlich. Erfreulicherweise fiel die technische Seite noch eine Klasse besser aus als beim wüsten Motorradrennen, denn die Grafik bietet sehr viele Details am Straßenrand, ohne langsam zu werden, und die rockigen Gitarrenriffs untermalen das Spielgeschehen exzellent. Auch in Punkto Spielspaß kann man nicht meckern, verbindet dieses 16 Megs-Modul doch auf harte, aber herzliche Weise die Genres Rennspiel und Beat‘em Up zum Fun-Sport. Erfreulich ist insbesondere das hohe Maß an Abwechslung, denn auf den Highways muß man nicht nur stur durch die Gegend fahren, sondern auch sein Können auf der Sprungschanze unter Beweis stellen oder Gegner ordentlich vermöbeln.

Overall, Skitchin' is a game that would be fun to rent, but it's not like you should push anybody out of the way at Toy 'R' Us to get a copy. If anything, you'll start playing Skitchin' and just decide to go outside and skate. In fact, I think I'll do that right now.

Att röja iväg efter en sportbil i 120 knutar låter väl frestande! Och så får man nita en massa schnubbar på samma gång! Mycket kl om man spelar flera. Inga buggar vad jag märkt. Miljön är tyvärr lite boring, men det struntar väl racingspelfansen i.
