Free Running, or Le Parkour as it is know in France where it originated in the late 1990’s, is the latest extreme sport. It involves running, jumping and performing death defying tricks through/over urban environments.

Free Running is about ‘following your own way’ as founder Sébastien Foucan says. It’s about being at one with the environment, challenging yourself, maintaining and developing aesthetically positive, smooth and attractive moves and tricks as you progress through structures, buildings and urban areas.


Features

  • Become the best Free Runner in the world once you’ve mastered the precision and    flexibility of the Wii RemoteTM and NunchukTM controllers on the Wii to perform the        most amazing tricks and moves.
  • 60 unique challenges, over 10 levels in 3 environments; Urban Jungle, Docklands &     Inner City.
  • 9 different single and multiplayer modes including ‘Race’, ‘Trick’ and ‘Target’ modes.
  • Completely free roaming gameplay – go anywhere, climb anything!
  • Unlock New Characters, Clothes, Music and Tricks and Moves as you progress through         the game.
