MTV Sports: Skateboarding featuring Andy Macdonald (sometimes shortened to simply MTV Sports: Skateboarding) is a 2000 skateboarding game developed by Darkblack and published by THQ for the PlayStation, Sega Dreamcast, Microsoft Windows and Game Boy Color.

Why It Sucks

NOTE: This page does not cover the Game Boy Color version.

  1. Poor and confusing controls, such as using the L and R triggers to spin in mid-air and maintain your balance on rails.
  2. The game features a lot of levels, but most of them are uninspired rampfests, without the nice flowing lines contained in other skate games that were out at the time.
  3. While the game runs at a tolerable frame rate most of the time, when you're looking at a larger section of the level, the game becomes extremely choppy.
  4. Some of the tricks look OK, but the utter lack of transition animations makes your skater look like some sort of evil skating robot.
  5. The crashes are especially awful, as your skater seems to warp from the start of the crash to immediately laying on the ground. Sometimes, you'll fly full speed into a wall and your skater will simply stop moving - no wreck, no "ugh" noise, no nothing.

Redeeming Qualities

  • The game also includes music videos for the songs featured in the soundtrack.
