The skate reel means endless opportunities for you to have fun.
Soundtrack isn't the greatest
Voice acting is questionable. It's seems slightly out of sync at times.
Tough competition from Tony Hawks
SUMMARY: What EA have embarked on is a very brave thing. In the skateboarding world, the gaming side is dominated by one particular brand. That brand being Tony Hawk. With Hawk's series being so popular, Skate was always going to find it tough and when Neversoft announced they'd be releasing Tony Hawk's Proving Ground around the same time, EA's job became that more harder. But have they finally been able to dethrone the king of skateboarding from a position he's held for well over a decade?
To begin with, Skate is certainly no clone of Tony Hawk's. Skate's controls are certainly very different. Unlike Tony Hawk's where you hit X, A, Y or B while pressing a certain direction to perform a trick...
THE GOOD: Great physics. The brilliant graphics or street roads, rails , character models everything is great. The Movement in tricks e.g. flip tricks , grinds , grabs look very real. The brands and bands on this game are good i would say i like the brands a lot better than some of the song choices but they fit the game well.
THE BAD: Very annoying tasks which will wind you up first time around with out fail. No co-op freeskate.
SUMMARY: I wasn't really looking forward to skate untill i saw a clip of it in game which looked great. I went in and got it that same day , on my way back home to see what this game had to offer i kept thinking that this game was going to be a cheap copy of Tony hawks. The realalistic moves which can be proformed everywhere anytime which was really impressive , when you first get this its pretty hard to get going but you will get there are about 30 or so minutes.
I was really impressed by the graphics of this game even now when i play it , it still amazing ...
