      Way too familiar...

      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.

      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.

      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.
