Probably the best skate game but...
on 4 September 2010
This is possibly the best skate game to date. However, it is still basically exactly the same as the previous 2 installments, just a slightly improved version of the second.
The graphics and controls have improved greatly, it looks way more realistic graphically, and the new map feels a little fresher and more enjoyable to explore (compared to the blue washed san van which was still great, but a little bland at times).
There are different difficulty settings simply affecting how realistic the game feels and looks. The harder the settings the harder it will be to land big tricks, plus you bail more often on the harder setting, but it is nice to play with more realism. However it makes some of the challenges really tough!
Overall what we are left with is more polished version of skate 2. Nicer cleaner graphics, better controls and a nice new play area. The only problem is it isn't really bringing anything new to the table, the challenges are all really similar to the previous games and the whole game still feels a little too familiar.
If you're new the the skate franchise then I'd personally say buy this game and skip the other 2, because in my honest opinion it is the best one to play and the nicest looking of the three. Hope this helps, happy gaming!
