Its AWSOME DUDE!!!!!!!!
This game rocks. But I wish it had blood like Tony Hawk. I play with my friends. Another thing is that you can't do 2 player on freestyle. So, we have to play hall of meat of S.K.A.T.E. Any way, its cool how you can do alot of tricks to do either on the ground or in the air. I would totally recommend this to a friend. Get this game for sure.
This is one of the best games ever. It is so addicting and fun. You can also upload photos and videos of you doing tricks on the game to the community on skate. I recommend this game to everyone.
Decent, But Could Use Some Work
Originally when I bought this game, I was worried about the control scheme being analog only, and at first, I hated this game. After working with it for a day or two, I warmed up to it and it turned out to be a decent title. A few things that could be worked on are: controls, if it had a normal "Tony Hawk" style control, it might get a higher rating in my book, and a better storyline, because it was very stale and hard to follow. In total i'd give it a 7.5 out of 10.
One of the top 5 games EVER, in my opinion!
Amazing, it cant get any better than this! It may have a few glitches and graphic problems but a great game! You get to use the new flickit system which makes it easier to control. Another good thing is the crashes, you can jump off of the parkade 4 stories up, its hilarious! The best part, they screwed tony hawk! Finally, a game without him! Thank you EA:D
This game is awesome but SKATE 3 is better. You cant grab on to cars SKATE 1 but in SKATE 3 you can.
I liked it a lot, has great gameplay and is very intuituive
one of the best games I have
This game is amazing I spent maybe the first 2-3 days just getting over the fact that you can go anywhere you want. Plus the falling like a rag doll part but after that, the story is awesome. Being able to pick your own sponsors is just so cool. The only bad thing about this game (which so far Im pretty sure they're going to fix in the second one) is the lack of speed. Unless you're going down a very steep hill you dont get much speed. The second is not getting off you board. Which they are fixing. And character customization is kinda week. One thing I noticed is that there's only music when your in good spots to skate so if your in the middle of some lame part of the city it takes a while to get to a good place to hear music and do tricks. Even though there are some things about this game that could be greatly improved its still a one of a kind game and I recommend it to anyone who's looking for an addicting and fun game.
Skate is the best game ever. Way better than tony hawk. I totally recomend this game. The flick it control is awesomeand makes the game way better. Not easy like tony hawk it is challenging enough that it is fun but it is not to challenging. I can't wait for skate 2. I pre-ordered it about 2months ago. The only improvements needed are better hair for your skater, make the hats lower on your head and make to be able to get off the board. Other wise best game. I know that skate 2 is going to solve some of those and i hope all of them. But get Skate before skate 2. Skate is also super realistic un like tony hawk. Grinding is awesome i love tre-flipping on to the rail and hardfliping out landing in nose manual. Another thing is they need to add inverts and impossibles.
Skate is one of the best games
Skate is a really good game for all of the family... even if you're not a skater yourself you feel as if you are actually skating and doing which ever tricks you do on the controller. The controls are really good unlike any other skating games like Tony Hawk games. The movement on the controller mimics actual skating tricks. The graphics are really amazing for a skating game. It defies the tony hawk games. The challenges are fun, hard, and give you the feel of making your way to the top of the skateboarding world. Although the camera angle is a little weird, sometimes you cannot see the obstacles in front of you. The bad thing is that when you're skating around the world the music does not play all the time... only when you get close to great skate spots... have fun with this game. I know I did.
A Must- Buy Game
Now I have to say I never really been a huge fan of skating games or car games and such but when my dad got me this game, I had to try it. When I put it the cd, I saw the main menu and I chose free skate. (I don't like doing career modes) When I chose the skater and the area, my first thought was that there wasn't enough skaters to choose from and the only ones available were ugly so I chose the one that looked OK. When I got to the area, It looked so realistic! The graphics were superb and the controls were easy to use.(I am a master at it now) I actually was able to do some tricks. The sounds were realistic too because you could hear people talking, cars beeping, and other skaters doing tricks. Again, I never did the career mode yet so I dont know actually what the challenge was but I saw my dad play it and it looked like it was great too. The camera angle was kind of annoying cause its pointed to your feet, which is so lame. (Ugh!) So thats my review. I recommend anyone getting this game,(girls as well) if you are bored this will not. If you are not a teen like I said, you will enjoy this as well. I hope you get it for the holidays.
