Going on the demo - this game looks equally as amazing as the previous 2 iterations. As ever with EA, it's basically the same game but with advancements in the control system and GUI. Slight graphical improvements too. This time your career takes place in a new city - the name of which currently escapes me. I am guessing that this will be bacause there was no excuse for a story left in San Vanelona. While San Vanelona was an epic skate park of a city - I really don't think that I could bare to spend another minute in it anyway. All in all - with the addition of Dark Slides and various other mullen trade marks - as well as many other excellent tweaks to the old system - and the promising new location - I suspect that EA's Skate 3 will be another worthwhile month of my life spent cursing and rejoicing (mostly cursing) at my television as I totally stick it to - and take the biscuit from physics.
Thanks for reading.

 A backwards step?

I did enjoy Skate 3 but there's a lot of things I felt were slightly off with this game. First off well I completed it in an evening on hardcore mode. It took an hour to get used to not having the subtle help of being moved onto ledged for grinds and not getting as much air from your tricks but this was somethign I preferred, it made me realize how much Skate was like tony hawks in that it really does help you alot in lining up grinds automatically.

The new camera guy following you around is somehow more annoying than the guy in Skate 2. Maybe it's because I just am not a fan of the US male accent (do they ever reach puberty?)

Bails...now when its done slowly I like how you can control his stumbling movement, but as soon as you build momentum i.e. for hall of meat challenges it makes it too easy I feel compared to Skate 2. You get too much momentum and the bails just end up being ridiculous, for instance hold forwards and keep rolling and rolling at high speed, then yank the analogue backwards and you take off...I mean come on, physics people?

The soundtrack is more hideous than the previous one, a few choice tracks which floated my boat, the track change feature is good but I still could only stomach it for an hour before switching back to my music on my Xbox HDD.

The graphics are the same, infact I see more tearing and glitchyness in this game than Skate 2, especially in terms of the park editor.

The park editor itself is very similar to THPS and was the selling point for me for this game, but it's not enough.

But the big issue, where is split screen multiplayer? Because I think there is NONE. My net connection makes Live unplayable thus this might be a biased review, however all in all I still prefer skate 2.


 Better than 1st and 2nd!

After playing skate 1 and 2 and being addicted I could not wait for this to come out. I have loved every single second of playing this game. The controls are easy and you can understand them. If you liked skate 1 and 2 then you will love this and if you did'nt the dont waste your money. And if you havent tried any other skate game...have a go, you might like it!

 Skate at its finest!!!

Where to start picked this up on launch day so glad i did!,

After not being a big fan of skate franchise after first one (it was far far to realisitic to me) i wasn't much hopefull for this, but to tempt me i purchased skate 2, which was better but still bloody awfull in parts.

This is where skate has come full circle its fantastic! the content is huge, the community is huge the ability to create your own online team and throw down challenges aswell as skate parks is a very nice feature, Also now your rewarded for creating logo's/parks and it helps towards singleplayer targets, which means you can progress when you dont even play!

The walking system has been improved alot since skate 2 and it makes it feel so so smooth, the animations are on top form as normal, ive played it for about 7hours so far and spent pretty much 5 hours of that time just skating on new areas and chilling out.

Anyone a skate fan should pick this up and people who never played before this version comes with Easy/Normal/Hardcore settings its great great fun!

 Good game but quite short

| | See all jaaames95's reviews (21)

This game looks great the surroundings are really great and there is miles of virtual world to skate around in. First thing I noticed were the controls, they are different from other skateboarding games such as tony hamk games. The controls are great slick and each move flows from one to the other . There is a lot of satisfaction with the controls once you get the hang of the controls its great. However this game is quite short and at times repetative. One great feature on this game is the hall of meat challenges where you have to jump of buildings and preform aerial moves before plumeting into the ground great fun and addictive. Overall I would recommend that anyone should buy this game but be aware when you buy it that this game is quite short.
