While the focus on the tricks is the big draw on the gameplay, there's very little to keep players testing their skills on these futuristic tracks. FutureGrind has a largely forgettable storyline that isn't important, serving only as a sidebar to the game's action. The game keeps the control scheme rather basic and the goals are simple as well, making for an easy pick-up-and-play type of experience. Where the game works is in allowing players the freedom to create their own tricks to score bigger points for each level; jumping, grinding a rail with one wheel, performing flips and aerials -- all of these moves and more are possible and usually boost your scores. Unfortunately, that's also about all there is in terms of replayability. Players are only self-challenged to post higher scores by re-running levels.

The biggest drawback to the game is its wash, rinse, repeat feel. While you can check out the game's manual to get ideas and combinations for new tricks, this only creates marginal creativity in an otherwise repetitive arena. Even unlocking new bikes don't add anything new or creative to keep you invested in playing, because they all start to blend together. FutureGrind's colorful and bright, but its shiny eye candy simply won't sustain the fun for your track runs for very long.
