The Deftones, Cypress Hill, and System Of A Down are among the artists who will pump away in the background while gamers get their skates on with THQ's latest offering.
When "MTV Sports: Skateboarding Featuring Andy Macdonald" hits stores this fall, users will be able to listen to the aforementioned bands, as well as Pennywise, Snapcase, Goldfinger, No Use For A Name, OPM, Flashpoint, and the Pilfers, while working through indoor and outdoor parks, buildings, streets, schools, and other settings.
While the Deftones and company play on, gamers will be able to choose from among 30 different skaters (including Macdonald, Colin McKay, Danny Way, Rick Howard, Stevie Williams, and Alan Petersen) and work them through events and competitions on 40 different levels.
PlayStation, Sega Dreamcast, Game Boy Color, and PC versions of the game are expected to arrive this fall. Once the game hits the market, it will face stiff competition from "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
2," which boasts music from Rage Against The Machine, Papa Roach, Bad Religion, Powerman 5000, and others (see "Rage, Papa Roach, Others Loan Sounds To Tony Hawk").
