So I bought this game hoping it would be amazing and it was. I mainly bought it because of the park editor but I get unplayable lag while playing in it. Also it takes a good 1-3 minutes to load alot of it. Overall a good game though!
Best game I have played yet!
Skate 3 was a very, very good game.It had AMAZING career mode, EPIC online mode, etc. What I'm trying to say is, Skate 3 - if you're a younger gamer like me- will be a perfect buy because of good graphics, awesome choosing of music, and you can't forget the incredible ability to create your own park - with Skate.create pack- and nice swagged out clothing (really depends on what you wear). So, that's my opinion on this game. I hope people will be able to buy this game so the skate 3 community can grow larger. See you later.
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.
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! :)

Truly EPIC game
Skate 3 is by far the best skateboarding game you will ever come across. Perhaps even one of the best games you will EVER meet. You are a boarder in Port Carverton, home of the skateboarding universe! You agree to start a company with a dude, and sell skateboards to boost your popularity. To process in your board selling, you must complete challenges, such as film and race challenges. As you sell boards, you earn points also, and collecting enough points will reward you with team mates. You can customize you and your team mates with looks, styles and celebrations (after doing an amazing trick!) it could take hours... or minutes. Finally after getting enough skaters on your team, you will go to the Monster Contest. Going up against other skaters like Danny Way and Dan Drehobl, you will show off your best tricks in the Monster arena. If you are successful and win, you will unlock the Monster arena to skate anytime, and get other customization options for skate.Park. In skate.Park you will choose what area you want to design your park in, and then once you are ready you can start placing in ramps, fun boxes, pools and so much more! You will have a certain amount of terrain to use up in your area, but each place is quite big and takes a while to fill the whole thing up. If you are a rookie to the Skate world and wanna learn the basics, guess where you end up... COACH FRANK'S SKATE SCHOOL. He will teach you everything you need to know to take on Port Carverton, and once you have completed all his lessons, you will take on Benny Fairfax in a game of 1-UP. In 1-UP you must get more points than your opponent. They will do tricks and earn their points and then you must show off your skills and totally OWN them. If you get more points then them, and they do not catch up or they bail, you will win the round and start the next one, setting the amount of points to begin with. Throughout the campaign you will play more games of 1-UP against pro skaters (Danny Way). There is so much more to do in the world of Skate 3, if I explained every detail it would take me a couple pages, so I'll end it with a mighty 10 and an ollie lot of fun.
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!
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.
Best skating game to date
I got to give it to the designers. This has been the best game I've ever played about skating! Great graphics, awesome multi-player action, etc. This game I highly recommend this game to everyone including Skate series fans.
SKATE 3 IS BOSS!!!!!
my friends at school kept talking about it, so i decided to get this game, my introduction to the skate series is awesome. there is a lot of complicated moves/tricks that make this game great, you make your own skate crew, customizing them, their clothes/merchandise, boards, and even your crew's logo and name!!! But i wasn't in it for the career, i was in it for the free-skating and skate park modes, they were very impressive, the three things you need for a great video game are 1. good storyline/gameplay 2. different ways to play the game 3. customization and skate 3 has all of those. GREAT GAME EVERY WAY YOU LOOK AT IT!
