I was playing this game since it came out! Great gameplay and amazing graphics. I rate 10/10 P.s when is skate 4 coming out?
Controls are awful, boarder can't maintain speed. Grab trick are near impossible. Air tricks are not possible unless you have serious speed and as mentioned speed is not possible to maintain. I would recommend this game as a door stop but not as a game. Wishing I could get my $20.00 back.
Best Skateboarding Game Ever!!!
I love this game because you can customize your character and its way better then all of those Tony Hawk games!!!
A Sweet Game
I grew up with my brother skateboarding as a hobby, and we always played/rented Tony Hawk Games together. I heard about the skate franchise much later, i purchased the game around the time when some of the Batman Arkham City DLC came out. Skate 3 is a game where personality and creativity are key components. Right off the bat, you are able to customize your skater, and as you progress through the game, you unlock more items for your skater to wear. Also, you are able to make your own skate park (whats a skateboarding game without a customizable skate park?) You unlock items to put in your skate park as you progress. There are a lot of challenges in career mode, 183, or 180, i think. These will take a while, and once you beat a challenge, you can come back and try to "kill it" (not with guns, or violence!) SImply put, killing a challenge is the same challenge but with harder objectives, so if the challenge was to grind a rail, then killing it may be to do a specific type of grind. Next, you have the option to play every challenge online, which gives you a bonus of board sales. Oh, board sales. Board sales are the type of currency in the game. Instead of getting paid big bucks , you earn board sales for your brand of skateboards. During the career, you can earn 4 other team members (that you make), and they help you tackle some of the challenges. If you go to the skate website, you are able to create a personalized logo to put on your skater, and to be your team logo. You can also free-roam, and skate wherever, and whenever you want. Overall, Skate 3 is an awesome game, that anyone should purchase. The price tag is also pretty generous, so go ahead and buy it, it will last you a while! Hope this review helped!
A fun change but very inaccurate.
First off: So many things in this game are just, broken. There is not two ways about it, it just does not work. Sometimes tricks will not register as that you did them and sometimes I have to turn on the "trick analyser" to see what is going wrong, and when that is open it is even more apparent how much more they needed to work with the kind of stick trick tech that they used, it is definitely not polished and needed more time in development and of course, more testing. There are times that I am trying to do a lip trick and I will fall on my face for no reason and that is above anything, frustrating. Some of the missions are nearly impossible, especially some of the last objectives in "own the lot" challenges. As usual EA has changed for something that should have been in the game in the first place, sharing your parks and pictures. It is frustrating to try to show your friend something cool and then finding out you have to pay money for a game you already bought. Although, I do like this game, the on-line is fun and it is a nice new game to take the place of "Tony Hawks Proskater" but I personally think it is not as good. The customization is deep and you can tailor your character to your style, the online is genious, letting you create a online team with your friends and the editing clips and photos are good. Great game, could use some more work.
fun to play and VERY addicting! everything is very perfected and the game is very open to the player. Normally 0 bugs to.
A must have for any xbox owner
