Skate (Xbox 360)

 

EA plays horse with Activision.

Hopefully Skate will concentrate on it’s strengths rather than tacking on horrible new additions every year just for the sake of it. Of course, this is EA and they love nothing better than driving a good series into the ground so my hopes for this...

skate. (Xbox 360) review

 

For skate. EA presents gamers with a huge change in gameplay mechanics for the skateboarding genre, a change that almost makes it a sim of the sport, and certainly a huge step away from the near arcadey approach the Tony Hawk's games are known for. For...

Can I Flickit? Yes I can!

Innovative controls, fantastic physics, seamless animation and pretty darn sweet visuals. Take a breath, retune your brain

Skate 3 Review

 

As a lover of the skateboarding genre of video games, I can easily say that have been spoiled over the last few years with the arrival of EA's outstanding Skate series. The genre needed new life and Black Box has done so with finesse with Skate and...

Skate 3 doesn’t boast much in the visual department it isn’t a bad looking game by any means, but it’s not something that will ever stun or disappoint. The audio however is phenomenal. EA Trax has compiled a great soundtrack so that you don’t have to....

Skate 3 Review

 

The words "updated yearly" are scary for diehard fans of any series to hear. Skate 3 has fallen victim to the symptoms of a yearly update with small improvements that are devoid of any one feature for the game to hang its hat on.Read on for our full...

Skate 3 is by no means a disappointing addition to the series, but those who sunk their cash into last year’s Skate 2 really don’t have much of a reason to take the plunge here. Thankfully the gameplay is still the most impressive virtual...

SKATE

 

The irony of EA breathing new life into anything isn’t lost on us, but the Tony Hawk series had for better or worse jumped the shark. Literally. As the game evolved from a skateboarding purists’ title to one that was more approachable to the...

Back to skateboarding basics ; Refreshingly realistic ; Vast cities to skate in

Some tight corners ; Flickit controls can be maddening

The camera also gets in the way occasionally when the skater changes his orientation on the board. In addition to suddenly shifting the skater’s momentum and screwing up that "perfect line," this can lead to some frustration in tight spaces, near...

skate.

 

When I first heard EA was working on a brand new skateboarding franchise, I laughed. While I had grown tired and bored with the Tony Hawk franchise years ago, I never imagined anyone could possibly hope to make a game that could compete with it. In...

To my surprise, skate. ended up being a surprisingly good game... perhaps the most enjoyable game I have played thus far on my 360. The replay value is through the roof, the graphics look superb, controls are fun and challenging, and the whole culture...

Your move, Tony

Innovative controls will realign your thinking about skating games.; The better you get, the more you want to play

The in-game plugs for sponsors feel awfully mercenary

No creating female skaters?

skate

 

When my friends heard that I was reviewing Electronic Arts next generation skateboarding game, Skate, I was bombarded with one question: Is it better than Tony Hawk? This seemed to be the question on everybody's mind, and for good reason. Activision's...

It may be the same sport as the Tony Hawk series, but don't confuse Skate as being just another over-the-top arcade sports game. Skate is a sports simulator, which means that you'll have to put up with realistic level designs and a learning curve that...

Skate

 

Not that it's verifiable, but hell might very well have frozen over, because EA just release a brand new game, not a sequel of a sequel of a game that was new in 1997. Better still, it's really good... if you're into skateboarding.

A brand new sports game from EA (oddly, not under the EA Sports banner... the heck?), the publishing giant more famous its sequels of sequels of sequels, Skate is a pleasantly excellent skateboarding game that, for the most part, takes practice and...
