Rated 10 out of 10 by CUTOFFYOURFACE SK8 3 STILL THE BEST ONE YET
more tricks to the Skate repertoire Powerful park editor is easy to use Robust online features, including team events Two levels of completion for every challenge. The BadNoticeably inconsistent frame rate AI of pedestrians and other skaters is all over the place. Skate 3 doesn't reinvent the wheels. Nor does it reinvent the decks, the trucks, or any other aspect of the Skate series. This sequel is as noteworthy for the features that it cuts from Skate 2 as it is for those that it introduces, yet this is still a better game than its predecessor. Challenges are varied and cater to players of different abilities, you have more tricks in your repertoire, and longevity comes courtesy of robust park creation tools and impressive online features. There are some problems--mostly caused by the unpredictable AI of pedestrians and other skaters, as well as the inconsistent frame rate--but goofy or regular, there's plenty of fun to be found in the new, skater-friendly city of Port Carverton.
Rated 10 out of 10 by THEMISSING Excellent New City, Excellent Skate Gameplay
As an owner of the past 2 Skate games I wasn't sure about picking up Skate 3 (just because 2 was out last year)...The game is GREAT!!! Whole new city to explore, more challenges, more moves, more everything. The story this time involves you creating your own skate company and gathering a team (either real people or AI). The better you do in competitions etc. the more boards your company sells and the more unlockables you gain. There is a HUGE park editor as well as an on the fly item dropper so you can plop down a ramp/rail/whatever wherever you want in the game. You can also create entire skate parks and upload/share them with anyone you wish. I really the new city. It's big and has a ton of really diverse areas. Online is fun as always with new modes and features. I like how they incorporate online success with your offline career mode. It all ties in together. Overall a really great addition to the Skate library and one I recommend to anyone looking for a fun game.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Kbdaman Best Game Ever Made !!!
Skate 3 is a whole generation Skateboarding in the virtual world. This game has brought Skaters and non-Skaters to love this game. Since Three years ago September, 2007, when I Bought The very first ever realistic skateboard Skate 1 I've been non stop this game until skate 2 came out. As I bought skate 1 this game never left my disc tray. Then when Skate 2 came out I beat the game the first day Janurary 23, 2009, I've feel asleep at 5:00 in the morning on a school day playing this game. Also when skate 2 demo came out I've played the demo for 17 hours straight. Wonder whats the stroy gonna be when skate 3 comes out. Ea skate is amazing I highly Recommened all of the skaters as of me and people who dont skate should buy skate 3. Comes out next year May 3rd. EA skate 1 was the best. THEN there was skate 2 that was excellent. After that Skate 3 !? Its gonna be Phenomenal

Skate 3 is truly an awesome game! You can free skate (free roam) do sick tricks! Make your own stadiums to skate in, complete challenges to progress through your campaign, and pretty much anything else you can do on a skateboard! The character customization is great, you can make any skater you can think of, and design your board! Then hit the streets! The graphics are good as well! The people around you in the city or wherever you are are realistic whether there walking on the streets, skateboarding or driving a car etc. you can also get in some trouble with them! :O The skateboarding is easy to do and fun! You can perform everything from grinding, to ollieing to flying in the air of a huge ramp and flipping your board around in the air! Creating your own stadiums to skate in is awesome! You can put in ramps, grind rails, big drops, tubes and anything you could want to skate! Then you can share them online, along with photos and videos! Finally, online! The online is great if you want to skate with other players or compete in challenges to declare the best skater!! I would recommend everything in this game, so go get it! :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by Firedog85 THE BEST GAME EVER.
You can do ollies and go to a skate park. I find it weird that their is no start menu you just spawn in randomly with a cool deck. good for all kids for all ages. SKATERS LOVE IT!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Goosegeesegoosegoogoegoo EPIC!!!!!!!!
Don't get me wrong, Skate 3 is epic! Just free roaming and doing cool tricks is all I wanted out of this game! It is perfect! The gameplay is so fun! Sound is good, I like the music it plays in the background. The graphics are awesome, and something very realistic about this game is that nothing goes through walls or anything like that. The lasting appeal is ten because this game will last, well maybe forever! Easily worthy of ten stars on a scale of one to ten. Because it's just that nice and EPIC!!! I wonder if they will make a Skate 4? I recommend you to get this game and if you like free roaming and riding on piece of wood with wheels on the bottom, then get this! Even if your not into skateboarding, like me, I'm not into skateboarding and I got the game, and... okay just go buy Skate 3!
Rated 7 out of 10 by LAMBOMAN2112 Skate 3 Fails to Achieve Expectations
I've been playing skate. games since the day they came out. I pre ordered the ORIGINAL skate. Skate 3 was not even close to as difficult, as good, or hell, even as FUN as it's kin. Skate games have had me hooked for a while, and I have about 2 weeks time logged into both skate and skate 2. I beat Skate 3 in literally 2 sittings. All the pros, all the mag challenges, all the spots, everything, beaten in 3 2.5 hour sittings. For a full priced game, I felt that it might've served better as an expansion pack for maybe 1600 microsoft points. Not only did the story leave me unimpressed, I felt as though the controls, sound, and even the graphics were worse then even in the original skate. Overall, I was extremely disappointed and will likely never pre order a skate game ever again. Thank you.

this game is so dope is over shadows skate 1 and 2 by a lot. first of the gameplay is amazing , the walking, running is way better and faster, the chalenges are more fun and realistic. the challenge of it is better than ever now to more realism and physics into it it has now difficults 4 the first time. the new features are awesome like under flips and dark slides, and the new hall of meat bouneses like the judo flip and the jump thing for more pain and fun.the contols are way better now it is much more easier to do the trick u r trying to do. and now u can form your own skate team and build your own skateparks which is awesoome. plus thar you are in a new city which means a lot more new suprises spots and sick placed to explore . now this, this is why i pre ordered skate 3
Rated 10 out of 10 by Limewax x360a The Skate series at its best!
The Skate series has come a long way. Skate one was good, then came Skate 2 which was a really good game, Now there is Skate 3, And I will tell you, its really worth the price, everything from camera angles, to the sound to the graphics to general gameplay is truely amazing. Now the hall of meat feature is once again stunning, now you can guide your skater through the air as your falling, make him or her slow down so you can aim which direction you want to go! If your a Skate fan then you need to add this to your library, if your new to the skate series then this is a great game you'll want to play and you wont be able to put down. Ive waited a long time for this game to be released, Now i can put down the demo for Skate 3 and finally play the full game. Go get this game asap!
Rated 10 out of 10 by dbz4life Skate 3 is HOT!
This game literraly made me want to jump off the couch and skate. And i am a couch potato. That is how cool this game is. It made me feel like i was really there. Skate 3 make skate 1&2 look like a gamecube game. I mean the graphics are amazing. I bet i could make a video of the gameplay and someone might think it was actually me. I love this game so much that i am hoping for a skate 4. It probably wont happen but we can dream right? The controls are so easy to use for manuevering around. But the flip tricks are kind of a hassle but when you get use to them they are a piece of cake. the clothes are so in tune with the way people today dress. I am so surprised that this game is that good. i hate all skating games. But this is not a skating game this is "THE SKATING GAME".
