Skate 3 Review



So you want to be a skateboard legend and revel in the comparisons to the likes of Tony Hawk and Rob Dyrdek? Well, then prepare your body and mind to fearlessly smash the tricks out the local skate parks and establish your name in the game.

EA Black Box’s Skate 3 has buried some heavy soles into wet cement to ensure that its legacy will not soon be forgotten. The game carries legitimacy and weight without a slip or a stumble. Simply put, I have never played a title that has the same depth of controls as the Skate series.

a lil generous with the score...i say its more along the lines of a 6...to me, they fixed some of the issues that were wrong in Skate 2, but not completely...this should have been more of a DLC imo. It should have not been offered as a standalone game

Re: Skate 3 Review

I just think that Skate 2 should not have been made. Skate 2 should be what Skate 3 is, which is why I passed on the previous iteration and will get this one in the fall when I find a nice price drop.

Sure man, I played Skate 2 plenty (just didn't buy it). All that I'm saying is 16 months between releases is just too short in my honest opinion, plus Skate 3 went to a new city as well which is good.

i cant not understand for the life of my why is that you cant use the photo face feature for a created skater?? This is another example of EA not sharing resources/technology

Skate > Skate 2 > Skate 3

Skate 3 gets the lowest score of all three simply for leaving out the LOCAL multiplayer option. Why couldn't Skate 3 have the option to play with a friend sitting next to you when the first two games did? I bought the game assuming it would have local multiplayer (what game has it then gets rid of it?) and I was a little aggravated when I found out it didn't. I love the online aspects of games nowadays, but developers are forgetting some people still have real life friends.
