Description

Combine the many tricks and styles of the extreme sport, inline skating, with a Tony Hawk style system, complete with objectives and huge arenas, and you have Aggressive Inline.

Progress through the career mode, where you must complete objectives (such as grind a certain object(s) to jump over large gaps and gain points) to open up further arenas, which there are 7 in all, and once your bored with them, you can make your own in the park editor. The game doesn't use a hard time limit but the so-called "juice meter": it fills up when performing stunts and if it gets empty, the level ends. During the game you level up your character in seven stats, e.g. speed and grinds. The game uses a "learning by doing" approach to this, meaning that the stat improves if you perform the associated actions often enough. There are also five hidden keys in each level which open up new areas within the level.

10 pro inline skaters join the fun (Shane Yost, Sam Fogarty, Sven Boekhorst, Eito Yasuko and more), and you can take on a friend in 2 player split screen.

Aggressive Inline PlayStation 2 This is one of the tricks that can be performed. Skate near an edge. Press cross to jump, press triangle to grind, use left/right to balance
Aggressive Inline PlayStation 2 The street level detail is good too. Fountains, flags and traffic all move well. The purple spirals are one of the game's power-ups, others are green and orange

Aggressive Inline PlayStation 2 This is a hand grab, balancing upside down on top of a half-pipe. Tricks like this take some practice but when they come off it is very satisfying
