The levels are fairly well detailed.
Extreme sports have really become a major genre on the Playstation 2 of late. Thanks to the developments by Activision, EA Sports BIG and Acclaim games such as Tony Hawk Pro SkaterDave Mirra Freestyle BMX and even SSX Tricky. One extreme sport that hasn't been covered yet is rollerblading. With that in mind Acclaim has developed Aggressive Inline which is looking sensational. With a release date set for June extreme sports fans better start saving.

Grinding along the wall.
Aggressive Inline features the top pros in the industry like 2001 Gravity Games and X Games Vert Champion Taïg Khris, 2001 X Games Street Champion Jaren Grob, the founding father of Inline Skating, Chris Edwards in addition to Franky Morales, Shane Yost, Matt Lindenmuth, Eito Yasutoko, Sven Boekhorst, Matt Salerno and Sam Fogarty. The seven levels in Aggressive Inline include over-the-top tricks never seen before in an action sport's game. Six types of manuals, grind transitions, double leg grind, new big air tricks, wall taps, stalls, wall flips, hand plants and much more.

Keep your balance.
Acclaim has introduced an innovative "Juice Meter". Timed levels are a thing of the past, now if you perform a trick your juice meter will raise and you'll be able to continue on, if you can't perform your juice meter will run out and it's Game Over. It's an interesting prospect that should work very well indeed.

Aggressive Inline introduces an all new "Action Button". The one touch button for all your skitching, pole grabbing, vaulting and interactive needs. This really increases the interactively of each environment for all skill levels. Speaking of levels each includes 30 to 60 objectives with challenges including time limit point total, Head-to-Head, single trick point value, NPC challenges and many others.

She's a babe, and she's in the game.
The levels contain 10 to 15 cinematic events that make the worlds really come alive. As an example, if you skate off of the Atlas statue, the massive globe rolls on to the street smashing two buses that form into a half pipe.

To top it all off the game includes the usual multiplayer levels as well as a park editor within main game levels allowing player to build terrain in order to accomplish objectives. Polishing off the game is a hard edge music track with bands such as Hoobastank, Black Sheep, Pharcyde, Reel Big Fish, Sublime and more! Not my usual tastes but I've been told the tracks should be pretty good.

Expect Aggressive Inline to hit the streets on August 2nd in Australia. This is one game extreme sports fans won't want to miss.
