Accolades on some of my Work:

-- Shawn Rider (11/29/2001), Gamesfirst.com

-- Scot (April 4, 2002) Xboxevolved.com

The five new levels (night club, construction site, skatepark, subway, and rooftops),
are not particularly well suited for skating--save for
the new skatepark level, modeled after a real skatepark in Tampa.

"Meltdown [is] original and require more than just your
basic gameplay knowledge...the radiation level area was just plain neat."
