    Way too familiar...

    Posted
    ClintCommander

    When the first skate came out i immediately was interested to see how it was. When I bought it i was hooked instantly. Pulling off crazy flip tricks in a realistic setting and with realistic physics was a blast. Then the second came out offering a bit more with a much more interesting world and the very useful ability of getting off the board and interacting with objects in the environment. I loved these games and have a ton of recorded in-game footage and photos to prove it. I was excited to get this one as well since it was yet another skate game. Unfortunately for me, however, I found this game a bit too familiar for me. Yes, there have been refinements and a few new additions to the formula, but largely for me it felt the same. I don't hate this game, however. I still think this is the best in the series quality wise. If you are a newcomer to the skate franchise then definitely start out with this one. It's not dumbed down or anything like that, but more accessible. There are a bunch of useful and in depth tutorials to help you get the basics down with more advanced ones to help you nail the more difficult tricks. Visuals, gameplay, and other aspects of the game have been refined as well for a better skate experience. Being able to customize pretty much everything about your skater is still great. There are plenty of options. Being able to customize your own parks is a neat addition as well. I do like the structure of the "story-mode" in this game too. I just found the experience a bit stale only because I had felt like I had played the game before. There just wasn't enough of new content to keep me interested for very long. I am confident, however, that EA can do new things with the next installment to make it a fresher experience. I fully recommend this game to those who want to get into the skate series.

    MOST FUN SKATEBOARDING GAME!!!

    if u only wanted to play offline find another game because this game is all about TEAMING UP AND TAKING OVER, the main objective in this game is to get a skate team and with your team online or the offline team no matter which one you do u can complete challenges and they will count for your single player career just like halo which is def a up for me. it saves time and ofcourse who doesnt want to play with their friends and still gain progress throughout the game. MUST BUY OR AT LEAST MUST TRY. (DONT LISTEN TO THE PERSON THAT GAVE IT 1* THEY DONT PLAY THE GAME FOR THE RIGHT REASON)

    I was told there was one of these in the store. This was huge on my grandson's Christmas List. The Manager helped me go through what seemed like hundreds of DVDs in a bin only to not find it. He told me he would go by several stores the next day to try and find one. I received a call the next day saying he had found one. This was absolutely outstanding customer service and I have sung the raves of his hard work to everyone I know.

    My son wanted this for his birthday, then my older son told him it wasn't very good (after I purchased it), so then he didn't want it. After he started playing it, he really loved it, and was glad I bought it after all. He loves making really strange characters and crashing them into bushes and stuff. He likes to glitch things on it, and I hear him laughing all through the house.

    I have really been enjoying my time with Skate 3 * They got rid of the security guards. The game setting is a city that embraces skateboarding, so it isn't necessary. * Improved load times on tasks where repeated reloading is required - i.e. bailing before completing the 4 required tricks only requires hitting A once to get started again in less than a second.

    I know this is an older game but we needed a game to throw into the mix for the kids and this fit perfectly. It's easy to get started and learn some quick trips so I'm sure as they continue to play and advance, it will be a great addition to our collection.

    If you've never played this before, you definitely should. Skate 3 is an awesome game with many hours of fun. I highly recommend it to anyone who has an interest in both skating and videogames. It's much more technical than Tony Hawk Gabe's though and leans closer to simulation.

    Skate 3 is a good graphic and surrounding upgrade with fun parks and customizable parks, but the reason I bought this game is so I could play it with all of my roomates in party play. If you want an offline multiplayer DON"T BUY THIS GAME! I hate online multiplayer and campain for skate so I just waisted 60 dollars.

    My son is a skater and loves this game. Hevis an older teen so he doesn't game a lot anymore so when he thinks is finished playing games, he sells them. We have now bought this game for the third time. I will not let it go this time because I will just end up buying it again!

    When I played this as a kid, I loved it. It got me into skating and promoted me to go outside. Now that I have repurchased it and have played through it again, I can honestly say that this game is still amazing, and that this game is still worth it after all these years.

    My kids have been asking for this game for years, I found it at the closest BB on sale just in time for my son's birthday, so I finally bought it. They both really like the game, even though it's an older one, so it was a good value.

    We bought this for our 12 year old daughter and she loves playing it! Great graphics and easy to play. She picked it up pretty fast! FYI, there is some swearing when the skater interacts with other pedestrians or skaters which I don't prefer but is not excessive.

    This game was one of the main reasons I purchased my Xbox One S, because of backwards compatibility. I have loved all of the games in this series, and this one does not disappoint. I especially like the intro video when you turn the game on for the first time.

    I was happy to see it on the shelf and snatched it up. It's a fun game, has fun characters and personalities are spot on with regards to the other skaters who have come together and produced this. Especially for us long time skaters and fans of such.

    The kids wanted this for Christmas at the last minute, and I was worried that it wouldn't arrive because of it's unavailability in-stores. I got in on time via mail and the kids cants stop playing. Graphics look great and kids are happy, so I am as well!

    This game has always been great, and has stood the test of time well. It's still great fun, and the thrasher mode adds an interesting additional play style for those of us who don't skate well.

    My son recently got into Skate boarding. He's also been into video games since he was little. He bought this game a couple weeks ago and plays it a lot. It's not only a fun game but helps him learn Skate boarding terms.
