I really enjoy this game, It is a blast. The whole concept of using the analog stick to do your tricks is amazing. So natural. unlike the buttons mashing of TH. The graphics are really good, the commentary is funny. And the open world nature is great. Being able to just hang out and skate online with friends "ala test drive unlimited" is awesome.
The major beef I have heard from friends is the analog stick tricks, most are used to TH, but put in a few hours with this and you will love the flickit system. Overall I love this game and will be buying it. No complaints about it at all. Good work EA.
Great Game, Great Graphics! If you want a realistic skating game buy this, if you prefer something with million point combos buy Tony Hawk. The controls make you feel like your actually doing the move rather than just pressing a button, for instance to ollie you flick the right thumb stick down then up almost all moves are done using the thumb sticks. I really think this is the next evolution in skating games, having played "Tony Hawk 8" I really have to say this game blows it out of the water. There is a slight learning curve but nothing an average gamer cannot overcome within the first hour, it really comes down to timing and knowing when to ollie. Also a great feature is the instant replay option which lets you capture your favorite session and upload it to the EA website to show all your friends! Overall this game is awesome and deserves to be at the top of your gaming list.
