What is unique with the game Skate is its control scheme that manages to capture the true feel of skating compared to previous games of skating where only a normal button mashing gameplay is available. One of its features is physics-driven animations. With that players/gamers will have an amazing first-time experience each time they play this game as nothing is repeated in this game. Skate is a great game for people who are afraid to ski in real life. Like per say, a certain player quoted on how paranoid she was to play real ski as she’s afraid to break any one of her ‘special’ bones. So in other words, this game is a great exercise to be carried out by these kinds of people. The player’s character gets hit by a bus and then proceeds to have surgery done due to that accident. Thereafter, the player’s job is to win events and perform specific tricks which will land the player an opportunity to appear on the cover of two magazines. Equipped with great features like its innovative controls that can take advantage of the dual analog sticks, the extreme power of the next gen hardware and the knack to create/modify tricks of the players’ style or that portrays the players’ style. In other words, Skate conveys to players a unique experience in the history of skating games.
