Anyways after releasing two yearly installments of Skate Black Box continues with Skate 3, the best skating experience in video games. First off if you have never played a Skate. game then this is the best skating game ever! But if you have already played the previous two I am warning you. But the game is supposedly about Team Skating? No. No it is not. There are only 30 challenges out of 160 that involve team skating. And really 16 out of the 30 challenges are just taking pictures. Lame. I mean taking picture is cool and all but when that takes up half of the Team challenges its just lame. Hopefully in the next Skate game they will have more Team challenges. Another thing about the game is it is waaaay to easy. I mean about 2/4 of the challenges are JUST gapping objects or JUST grinding one rail. And coming from Skate 2 where the challenges were very hard its just sad that Skate 3 is so simple. Skate 3 is set in a new town Port Carverton which is really a nice colorful town than the previous City. But when you start the game about 40 challenges are already unlocked all over the city unlike Skate 2 where there was an actual story that made you start from the the neighborhood and slowly moved around the city, unlike this game. So there was 0% of exploring in this game to me because I just fast-travleled to all of the challenges. Now I know I stated most of the bad but that is because I have already played the previous two games and was hoping for the whole Team thing but that part was really linear. It was cool how you get to make your teamates and their style and let me that the customizing your skater is amazing this time around. Also the graphics are very good. Another thing is the music. There are old, indie, metal,rap,and rock music. All of which are good tracks but there are a few rock songs that just suck. But its alot better than Skate 2's soundtrack that was all rap. Skate 3 is the best out there but be warned that its easy and short.

This is game is one of the most realistic skating games of the year. The falls the tricks the story line. Every single part of the game is true to the other two skates that have been made but this one the most realistic of all of them. With new tricks that are not in any other games of the skate series, the story takes a new twist then all the other one two. A must play game

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.
