There’s no shortage of Kinect games that simulate skidding, sliding, and rolling down slopes, and this simple surf and skate game does little to distinguish itself from the competition. The bright graphics are pleasant, and the motion controls for steering and stunts are fine, though far from refined. However, a lack of significant narrative and heavily repetitive events make this SpongeBob adventure a bit of a snoozer. Kids do more or less the same thing from one event to the next, with their only meaningful objective being to improve upon their performance or beat their friends.

Unless your son or daughter is a SquarePants superfan, best wait for this one to hit the bargain bins.
