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.
A Skating Game Without Tony Hawk About Time!
Dude I can't Believe it. This game has to be the best Skating game so far. It actually follows the laws of physics. And no Tony Hawk Dude it's a breakthrough. Me Being a Skater it actually helped me. Just putting the replay camera in slow motion i was able to observe actual movements. And the controls are awesome. They are the way your supposed to move on a real board. Dude BUY IT! If you're ever bored just pop in this game. When it starts to snow in Massachusetts this is what umma be doin. Its so realistic. Every skater i know loves this Game. Even some non skaters or people who don't like skate games love it. I Don't understand it. It's a Breakthrough for skate games. And GOOD BYE TONY HAWK!!! Without him it made the game cooler. Most skate games have him. Not this 1. I love what the guys did for this game!
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
the graphics are sick in this one, down to every last detail like the scuff marks on the wheel and the torn grip tape on the sides. plus the flickit system is sick. the motions you have to do with your thumb are the same as in real life. the tricks look wicked realistic, not like tny hawk's wear you can go off a kicker and fly 20 ft and the air and 11 kickflips and a 900. this is gonna revolutionize the skate gaming. the environments, graphics, characters are sick. pick up the demo in the PS3 store it's worth getting.
See Ya Tony Hawk
I picked up this game the other day figuring it would just be like any other tony hawk game. So i popped it into my ps3 went through everything needed to work it and started playing. I was stunned at how intuitive the controls were compared to the tony hawk games. (10/10) The graphics were really good and up to par with most games of this generation. They kinda reminded me of rfom.(10/10) The music was way better than thpg (nearly everything was indie) this game has stuff that i've never heard of but now am liking, to songs from bands like slayer and bad brains. (10/10) The whole game is challenging, no more doing one trick and getting 1,000 points, in this game its like one trick and the maybe 100 points at most. (10/10) The online is great and its fun to play with friends. You can also watch stuff they've recorded of themselves and then rate it. I would recommend this game to anyone 10/10
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.
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.
This game was really awesome. I love how when you fall it shows you what bones you broke. Sometimes I would just skate down the street as fast as i can and hit cars to see how many bones i broke. Its awesome. The multiplayer is the only thing in the game that isnt like totally wicked because all you do is play skate but its still really fun. I havent beaten it yet because theres this one part where you need to shoot photos for skateboard magazine that i cant get past but thats probably because im not super good at it. The controls are really awesome because unlike tony hawk games where you just press x to ollie or square to kickflip, you actually have to flick the controller down then up to ollie. Its a really cool and fun game and i hope you enjoy it as much as i did. (if you buy it, wich i really reccomend).
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.
