Not better but definitely harder and different. It makes it way more satisfying to land a trick that you’ve been attempting many tries pretty much like irl.
Controls will take some time to get used too, it seems intimidating at first but it works.
Each analog stick controls a different foot and the shoulder bumpers act as your shoulders would react irl with weight distribution when you’re tunring on the board while riding.
Keep in mind this is from a very small company and there are still quite a few weird physics issues but nothing too crazy that will ruin the enjoyment.
The best way to discribe the game is a very hardcore sim that is not aimed at casual players who just want to pick up and play. Getting good will take some effort much like actual skateboarding.
