Play the GBA version instead

After enjoying the GBA game I thought tha the console version had much more potential, man was I wrong. The controls are good, the graphics are good, the soundtrack is awsome with some Rage Against the Machine, but I just couldn't get into this game. It might have had something to do with the fact that once you get to the third level, the level objectives are harder to pull off, like you are playing a completely different difficulty level, but you aren't. Another thing that I did not like was that the multiplayer was not split-screen. You went and then your friend went, and that just isn't too much fun. This game tries in so many ways but in my opinion it just fails. This is just one of those games where you cannot be distracted by the beautiful graphics, nice and respondive controls, and the awsome soundtrack, because once you do you will see that this is just a Mat Hoffman rip off and that there really isn't much here to soak up.
