To buy or not to buy: Touchgrind

It's supposed to be a revolutionary game, but is it really with 5 bucks? Does it get repetitive after a couple hours, or does it become more and more addictive as you play? An most importantly-should I buy it or not? Thanks guys

I belive there is a thread for the "should I get this game?" topic.
But anyway it is a definate buy, I just played it today before a movie. It is a great investment.

I dont have it....
I looked at it a lot but ended up getting laby 2. But I guess I'll go buy it, as long as there isn't going to be a sequel. Any news on Touchgrind 2?

They said they were thinking about implementing a park editor and all those other special things in Touchgrind 2, still get 1, though.

I wouldn't say it is worth five dollars honestly. There is one level and either practice or timed score modes. In the practice mode, the game keeps track of your score by trick. It displays the trick you have performed which scored the highest number of points. In the timed score mode, you have a few minutes to get as high of a score as possible. Higher scores unlock new boards that only look different. That is it. Sure, the controls are cool and the idea is unique, but there is just so little content...

I didn't really enjoy Touchgrind. I found Skater Nation to be a more enjoyable game, although you can't really compare the two.
