Get a video game review of Atari's Backyard Skateboarding PC video game.

The gaming geeks at Atari have grabbed Andy Macdonald, plus some other skateboarding pros, shrunk 'em down to kid-size and tossed them into the Backyard Skateboarding PC video game. Now you can play the game as one of the kid skater pros, or as your own skater, as you pull cool tricks to score points and unlock levels. Here's the 411 on what's cool with Backyard Skateboarding.

Backyard Skateboarding Solid Skateboarding Stunts

Once you've loaded the game onto your computer it's time for some skateboarding video game action. The good news is that Backyard Skateboarding is easy to learn - you'll be pulling stunts and scoring points right away. It's also a totally cute game that's loaded with goofy kid skaters you can play with, or you can even build your own skater - complete with neon green skin and funky hair!

Backyard Skateboarding Video Game Wipeouts

The biggest glitch in this game is that it's buggy. It can crash your 'puter all of a sudden, or spaz and drop you at the start of the level. It's also lacking in long-term gaming action. There are only four levels to rock in, then you're done.

Backyard Skateboarding Final Stunt Facts

The bottom line is that Backyard Skateboarding is a bit weak. It has a bunch of cool stuff, but not enough. And, it can glitch out on you, which sucks worse than bailing into a pile of dog doo.
