Get ready to take on unique team challenges, compete against rival crews online and shred the streets of the all new skatersâ€TM paradise, Port Carverton.

Manufacturer's Description

Team Up. Thrown Down. The award-winning SKATE TM franchise returns to break new ground with SKATE 3. Delivering the definitive co-op skateboarding experience, it’s up to players to build the ultimate team and change the face of the city. Get ready to take on unique team challenges, compete against rival crews online and shred the streets of the all new skaters’ paradise, Port Carverton.

• Team Up. Throw Down. Work together to take on challenges and progress together through the career campaign or slay all suckers in head-to-head competitive battles for bragging rights. Players can keep tabs on the happenings of their teammates and rivals with Skate. Feed, the all-new game and web social network.

• New City, More Tricks, More Skate - Say hello to dark slides, under flips, and the all-new skate Mecca, Port Carverton - featuring unique districts, plazas, skate parks and endless lines, this is the true skater’s paradise.

• Build a Brand, Become a Mogul - Form teams and rise up to become a skate industry mogul by selling boards. From completing online challenges to creating skate parks to having your graphics downloaded, almost everything skaters do in the game counts towards their progression.

• Skate. Create and Share - Returning favorites Skate. Reel and Skate. Graphics are back. The all-new Skate. Park is an open canvas for players to create their dream plaza or mega-ramp park. Once created, they can share their masterpieces with the world by uploading them directly from their console.

• Always Room For Meat - Hall of Meat is back and gnarlier than ever. Gamers can brutalize their skaters in the harshest ways possible with all-new total body control bails. Get ready for carnage that is sure to make players cringe.

In the world of pro skateboarding, there’s always some cocky unknown kid coming up from nowhere, bidding to blow away the established stars using sheer outrageous trick-power. In the world of skateboarding videogames, Skate was once that new kid on the block – but with Skate 3, it has honed its skills to such a huge peak of perfection that it’s now the undisputed master.

 

So what’s it like?

 

Format-wise, it’s reassuringly familiar – you design your skater (using an awesomely powerful editor), and a logo, then you’re unleashed into the fantasy skaters’ paradise otherwise known as the city of Port Carverton. Forget reconstructed bits of real cities – Port Carverton is what you’d get if skaters planned cities – it’s huge, vertical and diverse, with skate parks galore, the biggest multi-storey car park you’ve ever seen, a deliciously rusty abandoned shipyard, all manner of overblown architectural features begging to be skated on, plus rails and stairs everywhere. No wonder, then, that it’s full of virtual versions of all the world’s top skaters – you’ll recognise the likes of Ryan Smith, Rob Dyrdek (star of the reality show Rob And Big), Chris Cole, Joey Brezinski, Dennis Busenitz and pretty much all of their peers. Port Carverton is so skater-friendly that even the security guards skate.

 

No shortage of challenges

 

After an insane intro movie, in which you see the process by which trees become skateboards, your mission begins: to sell as many skateboards as possible by inspiring skaters with your antics. There are vast numbers of challenges which allow you to do this, and of several types. To be specific: Deathrace, Film, Hall Of Meat, Own The Lot, Own The Spot, Photo, Pros, Team Promos, Street Contests, Training and Tranny Contests. Within those basic categories, there is plenty of variation – in the Pro challenges, for example, you might have to track a pro as he heads to a new spot without falling behind, nail a specific trick on a specific object, or take him on at a game of 1-Up, in which you vie to land the highest-value tricks in a series of timed runs.

 

For us, particular highlights are the Street Contests, which mix highest-value trick sequences with timed jams in which both teams occupy the street-furniture at once, and the vastly improved Hall Of Meat, in which you have incredible fine control over your body positioning once you’ve bailed, and some awe-inspiring vertical drops from which to break every virtual bone in your body. The Own The Lot challenges, in which you have to pull of lists of specific tricks, are a great test of your skills, too.

 

Social skating

 

Skating is a sociable pursuit and, for the first time, Skate 3 reflects that, with a bunch of seriously cool features allowing you to play it with your mates – helping each other out with your career progressions – and against other teams. Even offline, you get to build a skate team as you pass board-sale milestones – or you can draft in your mates to tackle those team challenges together. And you can build a team comprised entirely of your online mates. Skate.Feed lets you keep tabs on all your team-mates and rivals, social network-style. And Skate.Create has been expanded – along with Skate.Reel, for capturing your team’s exploits on celluloid and Skate.Graphics for defining your team’s look, there’s an all-new app called Skate.Park, which, as you might imagine, lets you and your homies generate the ultimate skate park.

 

What else is new?

 

Too much to detail here, that’s for sure. But there are new tricks to master – notably darkslides and underflips, both of which are very cool indeed. Underflips are when you catch a flip and flip it the other way, and in darkslides, you grind rails with the board upside-down – see you need to flip off the rail in order to land them. Also new is Skate.School, which lets you hone your skills before hitting the streets (under the tutelage of Coach Frank, who looks like a tennis coach but doesn’t sound like one).

 

Skate 3 is massive, meaty and amazing to behold, and there’s no doubt that the immaculately conceived and constructed Port Carverton (if it really existed, nobody but skaters would want to live there) takes centre-stage. The two-stick control system is as smooth and intuitive as ever, as you would expect. But one aspect that really stands out is the game’s impeccable mixing of the realistic and the fantastic – its tricks are believable and flow naturally from your finger-movements, and thanks to the new online team elements, you really can lead a vicarious virtual skating life. But then there are the aspects which are simply better than real life, such as the hilariously masochistic Hall Of Meat or the huge ramps and vertical drops which let you take advantage of life-threatening amounts of air. Whether you spend half your life on a skateboard, or just dream of doing so, you will love it.



The definitive skateboarding sim is finally here, with a chance to take your skills - and your friends -online for the ultimate showdown. Already the most realistic skate sim ever, the Skate series returns with its innovative flick-based control system that gives you complete control of your board.

The most realistic skater sim is more accessible than ever
Play online co-operatively or compete with others
New tricks, new game modes and new challenges abound
Put together your own crew of top skating talent

This sequel mixes things up with a whole new city to explore and two new play modes. One makes it easier than ever for first time players to get on board and the other ramps up the difficulty for a truly hardcore experience.

As you put together a crew of real friends or in-game pro skaters you can take on challenges wherever you find them, in new co-operative modes like Own The Lot or in competitive classics like the bone-crunching Hall of Meat. And whatever you do you can use the replay editor to record it all and show off about it later.

Key Features
  • New Skate City: Take to the streets of the all-new Port Carverton - where skateboarding is not a crime and pro skaters are dime a dozen.
  • Co-op Crew: Put together a team of skaters online and co-operate together on challenges or compete against rivals for the ultimate bragging rights.
  • Newbie Friendly: New easy mode and extra tutorials make it easier than ever to learn the ropes, with new multi-tier challenges for skaters of all skill levels.
  • Park Tycoon: Build your own skate park with the new editor that lets you build your own set-up from scratch or edit the layout of Port Carverton itself.
  • Skate TV: Record everything you do and edit your own demo reels as you learn how to dominate new game modes like 1-Up and Own The Lot.

I haven't played Skate 1 or 2, so I can't comment on the improvement, but this game is amazing. I got it for my 12 year old brother to try and get him to stop playing Call of Duty, and it worked!... Sort of. I think I've played on it more than he has. It's a really fun game, with many challenges to complete and you can do online challenges too.
The only thing is that it can get a bit boring after a while, unlike some other games on the market which have you hooked. Other than that, a fun game which can keep you entertained for a while!

Well i must say as a fan of every single Tony Hawk game released on the planet i had a slight reluctance to make the move from the Hawk series to Skate. As i didn't find the latest Tony Hawk to appealing i thought i would take the risk and try something new. All i can say is that it has certainly paid it's dividends.

The first few days took me by suprise as i didn't realise how complicated you could possible make the controls of a skateboarding game but once you get the feel for the way the game works it makes the most simple trick sequences flow and give you a great fell of accomplishment and saticefaction.
The graphic's are a marvel compaired to any previous games of this category and the replay facility allows you up loads your best trick sequences straight to youtube.

The only downside to this game i have found is that if you want to ride skate parks that other people have created and uploaded then you have to pay a little over £7 through playstation network to unlock this facility. This is however, only if you buy the game second hand as the game comes with the unlock code when brand new but each code can only be used once.

Over all if your looking for a game that gives you unlimited hours of enjoyment then this is truly a game for you!

I love all the new additions to the game especialy the skate.park tool. Very dissapointing that there is no party play as this is something fun to do once the game is complete. I would have thought that EA would build on the local multiplayer aspect of the game for a game based around teams not get rid of it!
Overall very good and worth the money that you would pay on amazon for it.

There hasn't been a game like this since the tony hawk games, The graphics are nicely colorful, Controlling the skateboard and pulling off tricks do take some practice but once you handle it, you'll become a pro in no time. I'm not much of a skater but this game can give you a taste of what they actually do, Hall of meat challenges are pretty funny plus stuff like falling off a tall building are a little exaggerating but the games supposed to be fun and entertaining. In conclusion I highly recommend this game, No need to play the previous two, Skate 3 gives you everything!

A present for a 9yr old boy. It looks OK,he enjoys creating new parks and the challenges but not being into games myself it looks limited and is a solo effort and a little isolating in my view. I prefer sports games which are more of a team effort to support that kind of ethos in younger players

This is replacement for ageing bodies that can't stop thinking about sk8ing all day, or have no buddies left to sk8 with so thank you Danny way for being the greatest stuntman (alongside Jackie chan), and for giving us this great experience, one big complaint time will go so fast when your playing five minutes on this its an hour in reality!
