SKATE Review

VideoGamer.com
5 September 2008
  • Excerpt: Few of you will not be familiar with the Tony Hawk series of games. Under the name and supervision of such a skateboarding legend, despite occasional duds, the long run of releases has generally been fantastic. Until now, those games have remained largely unchallenged, not just by skateboarding titles, but by any truly decent extreme sports releases at all.

The Review Busters
23 July 2008
  • Conclusion: Skate can be really frustrating at times, to the point at which you want to ruin a $50 SIXAXIS. But that is really just the realisim of the game showing through. Much like real skateboarding, this game is difficult and will take you a while to get good at. That's probably why Eric found a used copy for his Xbox 360 right away. Some little kid expecting a Tony Hawk-like game probably found out that real skateboarding is hard.

skate (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
21 May 2008
  • Excerpt: If I had to name a single subgenre that has been monopolized by one franchise for far too long, that would have to be skateboarding games. I’m sure most of you know about the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games. The first was incredible, arguably the best skateboarding game of its time. Since then the skateboarding genre has been dominated by this single Tony Hawk-endorsed franchise for around 7 iterations of the same game, but luckily that has finally changed.

  • Excerpt: There's been no shortage of skateboarding games released over the past decade. Gamers have been able to break their virtual bones and pull off virtual 720s in the semi-sim Thrasher, the semi-awful X Games Skateboarding and the semi-goofy Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure, to name just a few. But to skate fans, getting big air has always been about Tony Hawk.

  • Conclusion: Skate is a testament to what this generation of gaming can really accomplish with the tools given. A great game with just about everything necessary to have a great time, for plenty of time, both alone and with friends. With so much to offer, Skate is really the epitome of an excellent skateboarding game that won’t take forever to be good at, but will take the time and effort to master.

PlayStation Beyond
31 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Since the launch of THPS (Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater) the Tony Hawk series has bean the uncontested leader of the skateboard genre, but Mr. Hawk has company for the skating game of choice thanks to Electronics Arts’ skate. The once infamous Tony Hawk games have now simply become a shallow pool of button mashing, unimpressive physics, mainstream skaters, and short storylines with limited replay ability.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
17 October 2007
  • Excerpt: When you think about how tiny the competition for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater has been, it comes as a surprise that SKATE is Electronic Arts' first attempt at a modern skateboarding game. An attempt long overdue, in fact. SKATE is EA's first skateboarding game since Skate or Die 20 years ago. With that, the question begs to be answered, is EA competent enough as a relative newcomer to the genre to dethrone the long running Hawk?
