    We've just been having a look at the Wii version of Skate 2, dubbed Skate It! lately. With some excellent integration of the Wii Balance Board and an engine borrowed from the first game on the Xbox 360, it looks like it may be a winner too - so check out our thoughts within!

    Want...So badly!

    My parents have got a Wii downstairs and will get Wii Fit sooner or later, so this just has to be done.

    Building on what you said about actually trying to ollie and being told you where too fat and are going to break the board...do you think this game would be easier or harder if you already skateboard? For instance would I attempt to do an actually kickflip (but in a non jumpy way) and not get anywhere or do you need a small bit of knowledge about skateboarding to get on well?

    I can see people forgetting it's not a real skateboard and breaking the balance board thing. Nice idea I think but epic fail.

    Is it possible to use the normal remote and a nunchuck instead of the balance board? It was probably already stated int he article, I probably just missed it lol.

    I am also eagerly anticipating this game, and drooling a bit. I have wii fit, but dont use it much. I already have this on reserve. IF anyone wants to see a 20 minute demo that the producers of the game gave in Paris recently, check this link. I have not seen this much footage anywhere else on the web:
