EA Skate Overall..,
This review is from: Skate (PS3) (Video Game)
Skate is a pretty kick-A game,..As for Skating games it definetly sets the standards, I'm currently stuck on one part of the game as it's not HARD to do tricks, but HORSE shows up in the game quite alot and even when you're free-skating around and pulling off amazing tricks, when it gets to horse alot of your tricks that you did so amazingly tend to come out as an Ollie, a Nollie, Kickflip, or a Heelflip. which can be annoying because it doesn't take notice of the variations you added on. So you can tend to get by nose flipping, making it a 180, 360 and a 520 etc.. to try and get more points, but it gets a part of the game where HORSE is just a really hard part of the game to compete in.
Off the subject of HORSE - The skating and movement of the analogues is so Fluent it seriously does amaze me everytime I put this on. When you first start if you're not used to Dual Analog then you will be bashin the analogs away but you get used to this after 20/30minuts when you notice it isn't a rush to get the moves out of the way..After playing this for a while and you just fancy a freeskate around this huge city you put it on, kick off and skate around very smoothly...
I haven't bumped into any parts of the game where it miraculously freezes or any other stupid errors, and none of the missions are incredibly hard except for when you get really far down the line on skate.
I'd definetly give you the thumbs up if you were planning to get this.
