5.0 out of 5 stars Rather good indeed!, 21 Oct 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Skate (PS3) (Video Game)
Yeah i have to say i don't own my own PS3 but my mate does and i have played on Skate round his house.

When i first heard the idea i thought pfft! No way will that challenge Tony Hawk's skating games...How i was wrong it does more than just challenge it beats it hands down in terms of the feel and realism and don't think I'm not a Tony Hawk's fan i wrote a review on THPG PS3 before i played this and that looked amazing.

Skate in a way should be in a different class of skating games wehereas Tony Hawk is fast paced with ridiculous tricks and combos, Skate is slower paced with realistic combos and you can still do ridiculous tricks on Skate aswell for example the Christ Air move it just requires a whole new level of skill.

After seeing this compared to THPG I would get this game Tony Hawk's is good but if your looking for a different challenge i would go with Skate also the story seems more promising and you can customise your own board with what trucks etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking Good, 22 Sep 2007
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I played the demo a couple of days ago on a Xbox 360. However, the game story and gameplay will definatly be the same. I would get this game for PS3 as the controls are way easier on the PS3 controller because they put the left analog stick in the right place (I can only play Tony Hawk's game with the D-pad.

The graphics are amazing and the fetures such as nail the trick are looking better as now you can nail the grab and manual so you can keep a combo going in cool slo-mo.

The story looks definatly looks more promising than Project 8 as you can choose from 3 different ways to skate. Pro who goes for glory. Hardcore who just loves to skate and hit people who try and ruin the area (for skating). Rigger who can manipulate the environment and build his own pipes and rails to skate his own line.

I'm so impressed by this game I would by the PS3 just to play it (and also GTA 4). It's looking good but i would wait a few days after it comes out so you can find out what the game is truly like.

Remeber I've only played the demo but based on what i have seen I'd buy it no question.
