Skate 3 is simply one of the best games ive ever played. You can build skate parks and your own team. And there is a special button to make people find themselves on the ground. Online isnt the greatest but still good. Also you have to buy a DLC to get party play... Anyways this is an amazing game and almost never gets boring. i spend countless hours playing this game and Skate Share is also a great. you can download parks, watch footy and pics. However there is a small flaw for me. In this game there are no security guards and everything is perfect and people think skatings cool blah blah blah. Being a skateboarder myself this is not true and i sometimes go back to playing Skate 2 because it feels more real getting chased out of spots. Even though the game has greatly improved, there still are the hilarious glitches from the following games. The soundtrack has really mellow songs and only have a few that are annoying. This game is fantastic so go and rent it or buy it because it a 9/10 for sure.

i hope this review helped

Skate 3 is fun, and definitely a must-rent. But you shouldn't buy it unless you're sure you like it. I enjoyed the intro. At some points I was pretty sure it had real people in it, and not just animation. I also liked the intensity, places to explore, secrets, and the occasional breaking of the fourth wall. The controls are easy or hard to master depending on how adaptive you are. So you may or may not find it playable. I did though.

Pros:
Great graphics
Many places to explore and more ways to discover or get to them.
You can skate on %99.99 of everything in the game.
Plenty of ways to play.
Many challenges that will never bore you.
Great challenge.
Lots of ways to customize your characters.

Cons:
Physics can sometimes mess up your skating experience.
Tons of glitches.
You can only have 3 spawned skaters with you at a time. Which is not enough.
You may get frustrated sometimes with the difficulty of some tricks.
Some tricks are extremely hard to execute.

The third installment in the "Skate" franchise is a successful endeavor. This as with the other Skate games becomes repetitious and very monotonous but is incredibly fun while it lasts. Which is way longer than a rented games usually warrants. Personally, being not an actual skateboarder, just a common fan out the sport, i would not purchase this game. However, i would recommend this to almost anybody.

8.6/10
