Authors Note] ==================================================================================== This is just the beginning of this FAQ, I will be adding Info and everything I can find about this game. There will be more sections its just that I dont have time to do all this at once, I wish i did. Please mail me with comments, questions, and suggestions. Thank you. If you contribute, you will get full credit.(email@example.com) ==================================================================================== [3. My Other FAQ's] ==================================================================================== NFL Blitz 2000...............Dreamcast Thrasher Skate and Destroy...PS You can find all my FAQ's and at: http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/recognition/3602.html ==================================================================================== [4. VMU Game] ==================================================================================== There is also a VMU game that comes with Trick Style, its pretty fun to pass time on. You are like a worm thing and you move around hitting the plus signs and each time you get bigger and the walls will come in some on random numbers of plus signs. When you get intervals of 50 plus signs the walls will go back and you will go back to normal size but you will be faster. So basicly dont hit the walls and try to get the most plus signs. Each sign = 1 point, my higest score is 176 if you beat it please email me and if everyone does then I can make a section for peoples highest score and I will go on good faith that you dont lie. You can pause it by hitting sleep. After you go past 300 points it resest's to normal starting speed, which means 250- 300 is the hardest part. ==================================================================================== [5. Character Types] ==================================================================================== Stunters - are out and out show-offs. They excel at pulling off the most outrageous and awe-inspiring stunts. These stunts let them get to thse hard to reach spots that the other competitors may struggle with. When racing against a Stunter you sometimes see them disappear early in the race, only to take the lead by jumping, twisting and spinning from the roof of some building. Racers - are in the competition to win. They get a thrill from speed that other racers just can't savvy. They dont waste time rising to threats or challenges from other types of competitors. Competing against a Racer nor- mally requires one of two strategies: you either play them at their own game and concentrate purely on the race, or you try to take them out or get ahead as early as possible using stunts and shortcuts. Bullies - are peoples not to be messed with. They relish the physical co- tact of Trick Style and try to make relish of the other competitors. Rac- ing against a Bully can be a scary prospect. It often turns into a game of cat & mouse with them chasing you around the course ==================================================================================== [6.

Hover-Ride Boards] ==================================================================================== STANDARD BOARD The standard board is the most basic, a good, very all around choice and offering a balance of speed, maneuver-ability and robustness. Low cost makes this style board most popular. Many competitors happily race on standard production models. STUNT BOARD(beat the Japan Boss) The stunt board is designed especially towards offering maximum lift and maneuverability. In doing so, it must sacrifice some engine, thus it makes the Stunt board the slowest board in the game. TURBO BOARD(beat the U.S. Boss) The turbo board doea very much as its name says, it propels rider along at extremely high speeds. Excellent acceleration, the highest top speed in Trick Style! But a price must be paid for such velocity! To achieve the kind of speeds required by today's Trick Style competitors, the turbo board has to lose some of the body shell. So remember, dont crash on a turbo board. You will regret it! COMBAT BOARD(beat the U.K. Boss) The combat board is the 'tank of the track.' It is heavy, fast and offers painful results when it hits you. It handles as a block of steel on a ski. The extra weight for the body armor hinders the acceleration but the good type of engines fitted to these are sure still guarantee a very top speed. ==================================================================================== [8. Race Worlds] ==================================================================================== London: The crowded high rise metropolis that london has become mixes shiny new Plas-Steel buildings with old and crumbling landmarks like Big Ben, St. Paul's and Tower Bridge. Being the first city in the Pro-Tour does not mean it is a walkover; its towering buildings and traffic-jammed streets hide many shortcuts for the keen-eyed surfer and many dangers for those new to the tour. Manhattan: A climate shift has turned Manhattan Island and the rest of New York tropical. Old concrete buildings have been literally torn apart by the encro- aching undergrowth and now the resilient Plas-Steel towers rise up through a jungle canopy that leaves the streets below dark and humid. Yet the city has not lost any of it bustle or vibrancy. As far as the Pro-Tour goes, the sheer density of the city always makes for interesting and dangeroud competitions. Be Warned! Tokyo: Ariel Tokyo, the star of the east, hangs effortlessely above the Pacific Ocean and what is left of the island of Japan. The powerbase for Jugaku, Tokyo is of course the governmental center for the entire OWC. More importantly (at least for the general public), Tokyo is the home of the Pro-Tour. ==================================================================================== [9. Track Objects] ==================================================================================== Speedpads - when you hit this it will give you a boost Magnorails - you can do a speedluge and hook onto them and go where you cant regular riding Hoops - they are used as check points in mini game challenges Speed Hoops - look like reg. hoops but when you pass through them they speed you up like speedpads Vehicles - they are spread out in cities and you can wreck if you hit them Session Globes - you need to collect them or they are switchable, either way just ride over them Time Pickups - increase time remaining on the clock Powerups - hard to reach, but they will make you able to do special moves ==================================================================================== [10. Stunts] ==================================================================================== (to do these in 1 player you need to learn them, do challenge to learn. i was zak when i did this.) Ollie - A 360 Spin - X Speedluge - B Boogiedrill - Y Stall - after doing a boogie or speedluge hold UP Backflip - Double press A while in mid air 720 Spin - after a 360 spin press X(more points if in air) Method - press A then LEFT Mute - press A then UP Stall to 360 - press X while stalling Hammerdrill - press Y after a boogie Kickflip - press A + X in the air 1080 Spin - press X after a 720 Handstand - double press B while stalling a boogiedrill or double press Y when stalling a speedluge Bone - press A then DOWN Lugeflip - double press X while stalling luge in the air Boogieflip - " " boogie " " Gyro - press A,X in quick succession Handspin - press X while stalling a handstand Doubleflip - press A after a backflip Handflip - double press A while stalling a handstand in air Tripleflip - press A after a double flip Power Globes - Hold L and hit B(dont jump while doing this) Hold L and hit X(jump and have time while doing this) ==================================================================================== [11. Power-up Moves] ==================================================================================== ZAK Velocity Luge - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Bronx Slam - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points URI Velocity Luge - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Insanity Flip - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points SHIN Katana Board - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Insanity Flip - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points MAX Velocity Luge - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Insanity Flip - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points ROSE Velocity Luge - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Insanity Flip - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points MIA Velocity Luge - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Revolution - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points KING Velocity Luge - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Vegas Special - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points BRAD Wave Dancer - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Insanity Flip - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points ANGEL Angel Wing - Hold L and hit B = 2000 points Insanity Flip - Hold L and hit X = 5000 points ==================================================================================== [12. 1 Player] ==================================================================================== (if you ever get lost look for a green hoop or look on the map for a blinking square) 1. Guide Race 1 - At the start, go left and through the green hoop and keep going under the magno, turn left and through the hoop, and repeat, then you need to go a speedluge onto the magnorail and if you beat him there you pretty much have the race won unless you crash. Follow it all the way till you get off and go into the pit and jump through the ring and try to when you are falling down to go through the other ring and if you do then go right out of the pit and through the ring. Boogiedrill through this ring to break the glass and keep going all the way through the door and you will have to jump and do a 360 spin in air to get this ring then after that just boogiedrill the last it has glass and then yuo are done. 2. Globe Switch 1 - There are 5 globes in the bowl area and you must change them to your color before time runs out to beat him. Ok, this isnt that hard what you need to do is go left at the begining and get the one thats not on the jumps then after that go up the left wall and try to get both of them in one swipe then come back down and get that single again because he has got it and turn around and go up the right wall and try for both in one swipe and then go back and get the single again and keep repeating till you win because he will miss some sometimes. 3. Magno Race 1 - For me this is one of the hardest things to get on magnorails :[ but anyways, get right on the magnorail and right after you hit the speed hoop do a boogiedrill and you should land on the other rail then just keep going and you will fly right through the ring and then do a boogiedrill to break the glass ring and then speedluge onto the other rail and just keep going and then you are done. 4. Globe Collect 1 - There is 10 globes and you have 60 sec. Go right and get the first globe and then go left and up for another and then just follow the rest right and you will go through a door and kinda go left a little and get the single right below the drop(where the single was in the globe switch) and go up the left wall and get both in one jump, it will help to do a 360 in air and just land and turn around and go up the right wall and jump 360 for the other 2. You are doing pretty good if you have 30 secs left on the right wall. 5. Stunt Session 1 - Get 8000 stunt points, collect the 5 second bonuses for more time. At the begining do the boogie and luge and get the 5 sec. Then just go up the walls and do combo's of backflips and 360 or 720s and grabs. Remember to get the other to 5 sec. bonuses for extra time. They are at the top of both wall jumps. Mine was 8389 with 14 secs left. 6. Guide Race 2 - This will be a little harder then the first. Go straight through ring and turn right and boogie through the glass. Then speedluge onto the mangorail and just stay on and go through all the speed hoops and you will fly off through the ring and if you are in the lead you will most likely win now. So just keep following the rings right and then you are done. 7. Stunt Session 2 - You are now in a halfpipe and you need 15,000 points. Ok you need to do alot of 720's and backflips dont waste time on little moves. Try to do double backflips at once and triple. There are two 5 sec. bonuses and one 10 sec. Both 5's are to your right and lefts when you start and the 10 is directly in front of you. I go 15,250 with 3 secs left. 8. Globe Collect 2 - There are 17 globes you got 2 mins. This one is a little hard. Go straight and collect all the globes going left and the should you go by the way you started and go in the door left of that where the pit is with the 2 wall jumps and get all the globes and jump out and where the walls are in go straight into that door and jump across the path getting the 3 globes and then go in the last room where the halfpipe is and get the 3 globes in one jump and then get the other 2 on the other smaller walls. 9. Hoop Race 1 - This should be easy you are against the clock and all you have to do is go through the 12 hoops. Go straight and to the right and boogiedrill through the glass, turn left and go up on the side of the wall and through. Keep going left and on the wall again but boogiedrill this time for the glass. Then through the door get some speed and jump off the hill and do a boogiedrill to break the glass in the air, turn left on the wall and boogie again for the glass. Go through the door, now jump off the left wall and through the ring and land on the right side and go stra- ight and through the door and jump for the ring and boogie, turn left through ring then just goto the end. 10. Globe Switch 2 - You have to switch all the globes in the halfpipe before time runs out. 1 min. and 30 secs with 5 globes. This is pretty hard because sometimes he will just switch one right after you switched it. Basicly all you really can do is follow him and after he turns a globe turn it back and keep getting all the red globes and hope when time runs out there are all yours. 11. Guide Race 3 - This is hard too, you are going against him and the clock. I suggest not doing any tricks and just try to win. Go straight through 2 rings and then go right and jump through this ring. Go straight through the door and up on the right wall and jump through and land through the rings. Now go straigh through the door and ring and get ready for a big jump you need to jump through 2 rings the first one is easy its right there the second one you need to do a spin to get. Go right and get ready for the magnorail, you will fall in the pit and go through the ring and jump up the the middle part for the one in the air so you can keep going, go through the door and ring now go right and through the ring and your done 12. Stunt Session 3 - You have 1 min, to get 20,000 all over the Velerdome. There is 2, 5 sec's in UK. 2, 10 sec's in the Japan area over the gaps between ramps. 1, 10 sec in the selection area over the gap. 1, 5 sec and 1, 10 sec in the USA area. The 10 is in the air and the 5 in the pit. 13. Magno Race 3 - This is alot harded than the other Mango Races, so you should practice a couple of times. My technique for getting on is boogiedrilling instead of doing a speedluge. So you could try that. Go straight and hit the Mango and you will ride it all around the US area and then you will shoot off and go through a ring. Jump in the air and do a 360, then boogie onto the rail and go through the door. Go off the ramp and through the ring and land on the other side. Through the other door and boogie onto the rail and you will shoot off through the ring and your done. 14. Hoop Race 2 - Go straight and jump and do a 360 for the ring go right and follow the rings and jump, 360. Go through the door and then down into the pit, and go off the left side and through the ring in the air and down through the other ring. Then go right out of the pit and through the ring and then right again through the ring follow the rings through the door and then jump 360 over the gap and you should be back into japan again. Go off the left ramp and through the ring and the ring in the air then come down through the other ring. Then cut straight through the middle of course going towards where the guide guy stands and get the last 2 rings. 15. Globe Switch 3 - There are 4 globes one in each area, basicly just kinda follow him around and switch all the globes and wait till time runs out or switch them all this is pretty hard. 16. Final Challenge - You are going to have to use everything you have learned so far. Go straight and then left around the whole US area getting all the rings, through the door and into UK. Get ready to jump and do a 360 and boogie onto the mango, ride it into the Japan area and go off the ramp through the ring in the air go through the other door and boogie for the mango and shoot off through the ring in the air and keep going through the door. Then around US again and jump 360 for the mango in UK and into Japan. Turn left and then through the rings and your done. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ (if there is any shortcuts you know that I dont have please email me) UK 1 - Do the fast start and then go straight hitting all the speeds pads and dodge the trains and when you come to the steps go the the left and get the powerup globe no you can do a speacil move.

Jump to the right or left so not to fall in the middle and keep going to the left to hit the pads and boogie through the glass until the ramp comes and jump across maybe with a 360 or so. Hit the pads and keep going straight. Make a turn right and start luging, now you are going to have to do this yourself just keep trying to dodge the bars and hit the pads. When out make a left and get the pad and keep going to the left hit the pads and jump to through the speed hoop. Jump and do a trick and clear all the jumps now go right to the check point. Stay to the left and hit the pads then jump over the ledge and go through the pillar area. Now just try to luge through the rest unless you are about to wreck and your done. Japan 2 - Go straight and down the hill hitting the pads while luging, then goto the far right and and hit the pads and jump across doing a 360 and start luging and hit the pads in the middle. When you come out go to the left and jump through the speed hoop getting the power-up globe. Go towards the check point and make a right, stick to the left hitting the pads and then do a big 1080 jump through the speed hoop and clear all the trains and land on the other side and hit the pads. Go straigh and jump onto the ledge in front of you and dont jump off you will it the wall, keep going and get ready for a up and over. Go to the far right and up the ramp hitting the pads then jump off and luge and keep going till the next check point and make a sharpe left. Luge and keep luging all the way through the cave and get when you see the rock tower go to the right and hit the pad and do a up and over around the rock tower to the other side. Hit the pads and start luging and stay to the right side and go around the jump and just keep luging and your done. Japan 3 - Go straight up the ramp and jump across then go straight towards the yellow hall its to the far right dont follow the other riders they will pass it. Start luging in the hall and go up on the wall hitting the pads when you leave. Go straight and start luging again and keep luging and go through the check point and stop luging. Go in the middle hit the pads and when you are out of the hilly part you will go through a pillar area and the power-up globe is on the far left. Make a sharpe right and stay up on the ledge hittin the pads and keep going till the check point. Make a sharpe left and jump off the ramp, go around the turn now hit the little kicker with the pad and jump to the other side and hit the pads and dont go into the middle, now start luging and go into the tunnel with the bars going every which way and dodge them your best and hitthe pads it helps now your done. Japan 4 - Go to the left or right it doesn't matter just hit the pads and the power-up globe is right there at the top of the jump and you need to come down in the middle not to the other side. Jump onto the ledge and luge and hit the pads then jump and go through the speed hoop, go straight and make a left then a right through the check point and make a left. Start luging and stay to the left to go around the ledge and get ready for a up and over around the rock tower like in 2. Luge through the cave and into the next area and make a left through the check point, luge through this area hitting the pads. Keep going and you are about to go off a jump, and keep going to the up and over and get ready to clear the trains again, so do a 1080 across going through the speed hoops. Start luging and go around the corner and your done. Japan 5 - This is the hardest race, you must be very careful not to go over the edges! Ok luge and go left and right before you start going up the little hill get out of the luge and when you are going up the wall thing jump and do a boogiedrill about halfway up to get to the other side, I have never made it all the way around while stayin on the road get ready to jump and do a 1080 and go through the speed hoop, hit the pads on go on the big loop, then hit the pads and go over the next loop. Go to the right and start to do a up and over but land in the middle not to the other side. Get ready for a big jump do a 360 then delay and do another 360 to get across and dont do anything but in the half pipe thing dont luge or nothing, just keep going and you will start going to a jump will come up and you will have to go to the left or right and land on one of the things and be careful here and just keep going straight its really skinny. Then you will have to do the delay 360 jump again and just keep heading and when you come towards the tunnel get ready for a real hard part you are going to have to go up on the side of the wall and stay on the little peaice going around hittin the pads helps, but when I did it I kinda went on top of it, it was kinda weird. Then guess what there is another one do the same thing as before now you are in a open area and be careful there is a sharpe turn ahead and then it comes to 2 mango's and boogie onto one of them and now your are pretty much home free. ==================================================================================== [13. 2 Player] ==================================================================================== !! a.

Do backflips and 720, 1080 combos and maybe a couple of kickflips but really stick to the big stuff. 2. US: You are in the backstreets, with 8 globes, you are trying to have the must globes when times end. Ok at the begining he will go straight but that is the long way so go to the right stairs and follow the hall to the right hitting all the speed pads and then when you get to the globe area go all the way across and get the one on the ground and then come back the hall to the right hitting all the speed pads, you must get the first globe back before he gets his back. Then go back the same way and get one in the air, then come back go again and get another in the air, then when you go this time he should have got the one on the ground so get it again and take it back and if he didnt get one in the air and just repeat this till the time runs out and you should win. 3. Japan: You are at the speed circuit and you are racing guide through hoops for 2 laps if you beat him you get the last board. Ok go straight and just keep heading that way getting through the rings, remember to stay on the metal part its the road and the rings will always be on it and not the dirt. When you kinda go down a little hill get ready to jump over the road block signs so you can get the ring. After you go around the sharpe turn get ready to jump for 2 rings in the air you need to do a spin in air, now jump again over the road signs. Repeat this and you will be the winner. It should be a close race so you need to use some luge in there on straight parts so he wont get ahead of you. ==================================================================================== [15.

Reviews] ==================================================================================== Review by phillipdc(firstname.lastname@example.org) Trick Style, a hoverboard racing game, a ok idea but is it really that great? You can choose from 9 diffrent characters from all over the world with diffrent style's of racing. You have bullies, racers, and the stunters. You have a ok selection of boards, but what I really like is the VMU game which comes with it. Gameplay(7/10) - You have 1 player and 2 player modes with diffrent types where you can get more boards and learn more stunts or do the challenge. The challenge is designed well with a nice layout where you have room to practice 100+ tricks and run around. Two player is just a race against the other player where can you get points for tricks. ect. Graphics(10/10) - With the whole thing done in 3D and large course's it looks really really good. They have some amazing detail which flows together very well. It's fun to watch the amazing stunts when they look so good. Control(10/10) - The game is all around pretty simple to use, the movement is nice and smooth and its not that diffcult to do moves. Just about anyone could play this. Replay(6/10) - You wouldnt want to play this again unless you want to beat scores or race friends which gets kinda old unless you can rip some killer moves. Once you go through everything to get the boards and more stunts you really have done every thing there is to do. Overall(7/10) - Great graphics, pretty fun to do all the tricks but the lacking replay is what makes this a bad game then fun kinda runs all out and thats why we play games is for fun. This whould be a great game for a 2 or 3 day rental but I really wouldnt buy it unless you enjoyed it that much. To get the VMU game all you need to do is rent it :]. Reviewer's Score: 7 / 10 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Review by Andrew(email@example.com) When Trickstyle came out I was kind of excited. I really wanted to add a racing game to my collection. My mom bought it for my little brother for Christmas. Luckily, I had some money and bought it off her in October so I could play it. I made the right move. While Trickstyle lacks in some areas, it makes up in others. This is a quality game for Dreamcast. Gameplay: 7/10 - The gameplay is alright. Two player mode seems a bit sluggish but it doesn't really have that much slowdown. The vertical cut off screen is a bit difficult to get use to. One player mode is fun, but it's really hard. You will be playing the same levels over and over just trying to beat it. There are board upgrades and a lot of characters to choose from. Graphics - 10/10 - This game has great graphics. The courses look so nice that the first time I saw them I couldn't believe it. If you want to buy a game just for graphics, this is a good game to buy. I can't believe how good the people and courses look. Sound - 3/10 - I hate the sound in this game. It seems like it a 5 years out of date. It is pretty hard to understand the few words the people say. If you don't mind playing games without music, I suggest you press the mute button on your tv. Replay Value - 7/10 - This game takes a while to beat. It is a pretty hard game to beat so it will take you a while to complete the courses. Also, there are a lot of challenges so those will take hours to beat. After you complete the game there is no real thrill of beating it again. Multiplayer mode may be fun for a while, but this game will get old after you beat it. No doubt about that. Overall - 8/10 - This is a great game to have. While it may not be one of the top titles, it will keep you entertained for hours. At the least rent this game. If you like it after that be sure to buy it. I say this is the 5th best game out of my 11 games. Reviewer's Score: 8 / 10 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Review by firstname.lastname@example.org Acclaim's first Dreamcast title is a looker alright. When I first saw this futuristic hoverboard game in action at E3 (on video, not playable) I said, "I will have you." So now it's 4 months later and I own it. But now I'm torn. After all of the games I've played and seen, you'd think I'd have listened to my own advice. I should have rented it first. The best thing you can say about Trick Style is that it looks really good. So you know what that means... ----------------------------- Highs: Awesome Graphics & Framerate Beautiful Racing Environments Pumping Techno Soundtrack 18 Tracks Lows: Tricks Too Easy to Execute Combo Tricks Difficult Bullying by Other Players Control is Difficult to Master Long Load Times No On-Line Support No Michael Buffer (Kidding!) ------------------------------ Trick Style is the perfect example of style over substance. It looks awesome and plays average. There I said it. That was for my own benefit. Hey you'd be upset too if you bought this game over NFL 2K or Ready 2 Rumble or...stop it! I can't go on. Sob... Okay, so I'm being a tad hard on the poor game. Trick Style is a cool concept and if I hadn't said it before, it looks amazing! Where the game ultimately fails is the difficult control, the hard to maneuver environments and the horrifyingly easy trick execution. Did I say this yet? The graphics are out of this world and will wow you until you can no longer resist and you must breakdown and purchase it without ever having played it. T hat's how good the graphics are. The animations of the boarders are a little stiff, but you'll have little time to worry about that because you'll be too busy getting smashed off of your board by a bigger opponent! But don't really worry about that because it only usually costs you the race so that you'll have to start over. It's fun playing the same level over and over, because it gives you an excuse to see all of the beautiful graphics again. Have I mentioned how freakishly awesomely amazing the graphics are yet? Once you choose your boarder you can either practice some stunts in the Velodrome or continue on and start racing in the U.K. If you choose to practice, you'll learn some tricks and have to master them before moving on. Acclaim thought it necessary to not include this or any other features in a selectable menu, so every time you jump on your board on your way into the Velodrome, the game stops and you are asked if you want to practice. Convenient. Sure it only takes 5 seconds to return to playing but those are 5 seconds of my life that I'll never get back and they tend to add up in this game. The thing I can't understand is that the game is called Trick Style yet there is very little emphasis on doing actual tricks. Pulling off the stunts are easy enough but you wouldn't dare trying to pull off any while racing, because one slip up will cost you first place. So what's the fun in that? If you can't imagine what I mean take Trick Style for a test drive. You'll find the environments cramped and far too difficult to navigate with a flying device that has little use for a brake. Of course those tight-cornered, hard to navigate, cramped racing tracks are beautifully detailed and will calm your frazzled nerves by looking so good. You'll say, "Hey, I don't mind not being able to negotiate that 90 degree turn for the 80th time because the wall I smash into every time is just so darned gorgeous." That's a real gamers attitude for you. Yeah right. This game will make you controller biting mad or worse. Musically the game is very WipEout like, with some good old fashioned turn of the century techno, pumping through it. The voices however, are another deal entirely. Every time you pass one of these guys or gals they spew out their catch phrase. It will drive you completely mental after awhile. The only saving grace is that Michael Buffer isn't a playable character. Otherwise you'd have to endure "Let's get ready to rrrrumble..." about 8000 times per game, like in that boxing game for the DC of which I forget the title. My advice: Turn off the voices. Complaint Dept. Ultimately my biggest complaint is that I think this game was rushed out the door for launch to try and appeal to all of the people who have never played and will probably never play this sport in their lifetime. So what was the rush? Trick Style is not a well balanced game. I have discovered that if you pick your character based on anything but strength, you will be pushed around while racing. So then you get this bruiser on a board, but his maneuverability blows. Another annoyance is the slight lag time between button presses and trick execution. I found it difficult to combo tricks together because of this. And finally where is the on-line support? The DC has a modem, so how about supporting it for goodness sakes? I hope this modem doesn't end up dead in the water before it is even given a chance to prove it's worth. The modem is a big deal to us! Every multi-player game should support it. This game has "rental" written all over it. I know how it is, when a new system comes out. You'll want to play all of the games for it just to be dazzled or to impress your friends. Trick Style will impress and it will entertain, but eventually the veneer wears off and you are left with a stunningly average game which contradicts it's extremely next generation looks.
