Skate 3 was ultimately very fun and entertaining, however it was not very long. I beat it in about three days. The game play was also no different from the two previous titles, but when there isn't anything to fix then I guess you're alright. This is starting to run into madden like problems where they just have no more creative juices flowing to something that when it first came out was so amazing. Hopefully they won't rush the next title and will take the time to come up with something new and exciting for all of us virtual skaters out there.
I just sent it back and I already kind of miss it. Whether it's techical skating you enjoy or the absolutely absurd, I'm looking at you Hall of Meat challenges, it's all here to be had.
The storyline is interesting enough, do challenges, sell boards, open more challenges etc., but it's slick and streamlined to move from one challenge to the next and the variety of different challenges ensures there's always a different one to try if you get stuck on one.
The Park Editor is second to none, allowing an unbelievable amount customization. Hint here...do the career mode to unlock all the various items usable in the PE.
With the game set on the Easy setting its easily accesable to children. My eight year old son hasn't stopped grinning for four days after putting up a bigger line score than me in the Maloof Money Cup.
The only minor complaints are a few graphical glitches and a camera that gets a little quirky in tight spaces when set to the "Above" position. Minor issues that held it back from a perfect 10.
