Skate and Skate 2 have a splitscreen option? If so, point it out. I hadn't ever heard of that. If it does and Skate 3 doesn't, I'll go out and buy Skate 2 right now.

If you're referring to some sort of "alternate turns" mode or a LAN play option or something, then I guess I'm less concerned about something like that. But a free skate splitscreen mode is everything for me... and I don't believe that Skate (1) had it.

Very generous overall score. This game is a 7 at most. The franchise started off pretty strong and has just gotten weaker as more games have come out. I would much prefer the formula of the first game where it pretty much replicated the first Tony Hawk Underground with building up your skater through sponsors. Keep that general formula and add the other aspects that have been introduced as the games have gone on.
This series started off trying to focus on the realism rather than the crazy airs and ridiculous lines that you could pull off in the Tony Hawk games yet now it seems like that's exactly what Skate is becoming. They need to better incorporate the team building feature and fix the skater creator, the skater faces are pretty terrible and their lack of quality is made even more obvious when you see how good the actual pros in the game look. I had more fun playing Skate 1 than this game. I'd have to agree with whoever said Skate1 > Skate 2 > Skate 3.
While the game is fun, it leaves you with a sense of unfulfilled potential. They need to get rid of those gimmicky story line openings that they use to put your skater back at square one at the start of every game.I'm not talking about the intro videos (those are funny to watch), I'm talking about your skater always almost killing himself then having to rebuild your career. It's like an excuse to make you play the game rather than just progressing your skater in one continuous experience from Skate 1, 2 and 3.

I organized my post in paragraphs with indents, why is it all jumbled together?

Re: Skate 3 Review

I have never really been into skating games...think I played the skate or skate 2 demo a while ago and liked it. Took a huge chance in my mind and bought this over the weekend and I am really surprised how much FUN the game is. Since I didn't play the first 2 in the series I'm able to have a lot of fun without thinking about the game in relation to its predecessors.

Re: Skate 3 Review

I'm thinking I might pick this up tomorrow. They have it for 39.99 at GS new. Is there any incentive to buy it new or should I go used?

Re: Skate 3 Review

I think you're good to buy it used. It came out before that Online Pass business, so I think you can just save yourself a couple bucks.
