But that is all about to change with skate it is immersive and chillingly real in it's delivery. Gone is to two dimensional 'feel' instead replaced with characters movements in accordance to the impulse of landing a trick or an Ollie thus producing stunning physical interactions.
Movement and speed is dictated by the gamers preference allowing the user to push off to gain… Read more
