I'm a SKATE fanboy, i've loved the first AND the second one, but come on... it's too early.

Agreed. Skate is probably my favorite sports game of this gen (along with MLB09 the Show), but Skate 2 felt VERY familiar, and now a third game within 3 years? C'mon, they aren't even updating the graphics at all. It looks identical to Skate 1, and their only new addition is "teams"? When has skating been about team vs. team? I think they should push it back a year and work on things like graphics/physics.

If not even the true fans of the franchise want it, you know that the company tries to milk it. Bad move, EA.

I skipped out on Skate2 because I figured 3 would be close behind it.

But I might have to skip 3 and wait for 4. Basically I'll just wait until I can see that they've made substantial improvements to the game.

After watching that First Look video I can say without hesitation this is shaping up to be pretty horrible. I liked the first because of it's attention to realism, but the second and now the third are turning into a Tony Hawk game, which really disappoints me. I doubt I'll even play this.

Well said....
Does this mean we're going to get as many Skate games as THPS? Is EA just going to start releasing a sequel every year to their games they way they've done with their damned sports games for so long?

Skate 2 was dreadful. It's like Skate mixed with freakin' Spyro or something, what's with all the phone calls and blocked off areas? We don't want to play an RPG, we just want to skate goddamnit. Make the skating itself good enough and you don't need all the shitty gimmicks.

Yeah, but then people would bitch that it's shallow, with no content...

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (4 Hours ago)
