I quite enjoyed Skate or Die back in the day, but never knew this existed. To the emulator!

But 720 was better than Skate or Die, for it had killer bees that chased you. Killer bees are something that really should be introduced into winter sports games if you ask me.

Played this all the time on the Amiga when I was a kid, loved the halfpipe and the innertube events.

I played Skate or Die all the time, but I've never even heard of this one until now.

I can't believe I didn't know about this game considering I must have logged 1000 hours of skate or die back in the day. Thanks for mentioning it boogie!

This game is a waste of time. Just stick to playing skate or die. There is a good reason why many of you have not heard of the game before.

I can't believe that Rog would even consider putting 720 above skate or die. Not even close. Thats like saying back to the future is great because it has skatboarding and bees and we all know how fun that game is....

I'd rather see a polar bear jumping out of one of the snow covered forests there to try to grab you and destroy your aspiring desire to best your opponent.

720 was novel because it pushed the Gauntlet hardware in ways that it was thought impossible (something about how the pits and walls were rendered, something something scanline bla bla bla I don't give a fuck and neither you do you). But if you play it, either on MAME, Midway Arcade Treasures, or the actual cabinet, you'll see that it's nothing more than a quarter-sucking arcade experience, while Skate Or Die is the embryo for what would come to be known as Thrasher: Skate and Destroy, the tadpole that would grown into the fully-evolved Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series.

So while I DO respect 720's place in history, you're being blinded by nostalgia if you consider it better than it's successors. It's like claiming that a Macintosh Classic is better than a quad-core modern day desktop PC. It has it's place in history, but are you REALLY expecting to do anything useful in today's world with it?

On the other hand, the Mac doesn't use Vista... _
