Game Chronicles (Aug 17, 2002)
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Stück für Stück tasteten sie sich an den großen Rivalen heran. Erst auf dem Skateboard, dann auf dem BMX und nun auf Inlineskates. Die Rede ist vom Dave Mirra- Entwickler Z-Axis. Die Kalifornier sollten im Auftrag von Acclaim frischen Wind in das von Activision und Tony Hawk dominierte Genre des Trendsports programmieren. Nun ist aus dem vermuteten Lüftchen eine steife Brise geworden, die Activision und Mr Hawk kräftig ins Gesicht bläst. Aggressive Inline schafft es tatsächlich, mit riesigen Leveln, lustigen Aufgaben und einer Hand voll Innovationen Tony Hawk‘s Pro Skater 3 Sand in die Kugellager zu wehen.

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.
GamePro (US) (Aug 26, 2002)
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.

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.
Gameswelt (Sep 24, 2002)
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.
GameSpot (Aug 29, 2002)
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.

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.

Que ça fait plaisir de voir qu'il est encore possible d'innover dans un secteur que l'on pensait déjà condamné à tourner en rond pour l'éternité (j'exagère à peine...). Avec ses nombreuses qualités, Aggressive Inline se place logiquement dans le cortège de tête des jeux de la discipline. Une vraie réussite !

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.

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.

If you love extreme sports games, this is a no-brainer. Go and get the game. Even if you have no interest in inline skating you will find a lot to like here. It may not be the big name game that you have been waiting for, but as a filler game it is superb and hopefully the start of a very successful franchise.
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.
