The first 10 minutes: SKATE

The first 10 minutes: SKATE

The Tony Hawk games series started more than 8 years ago, and during all that time there has never been any more serious threat to Neversoft than SKATE. After years of over the top skating, EA's game is a real novelty with a much more simulation-ish gameplay. It takes quite some time to get used to the controls, but nailing a trick is so much more rewarding. Much recommended!



The version of the game I've received is only in French, so you'll have to suffer through the horrible dudding. Sorry about that.

really love the game. after the TH demo I will definitely NOT get the new TH game. Skate is so much better and gives you a really natural skate experience. I have been playing over LIVE with some friends that I usally go to the skatepark with and it's been almost as fun as really going there. EA has really done well with this game. Hopefully some features are added to the second part (like getting off your board and walk around) and the campaign will last longer than 5-6 hours...

Finally a real skate game!!!! I was tired of that bullshit called Tony Hawk. The game experience in this game is so much realistic , and the graphics are cool. For those who actually are skateboarders will agree with me that Skate is so much better than TH!!!

The game is dead cool but this is also the exact same thing we get in the demo. so its just 'first 10 minutes of the demo'.
would have been nice to see the story mode AFTER the demo ends.

Damn. I didn't try the demo so I didn't know. When does the demo end exactly?

The game play great but it could sure use some meaningful objectives to liven up the fun. It gets boring after a while...and very frustrating at times.

About the game

    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (4 Hours ago)

    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (6 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (6 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (6 Hours ago)
