Conclusion: With almost infinite game replayability and tons of game content to choose from with customizing your board and skater, even tune your board however you want, this game is a great one, absolutely worth buying in my opinion. If it seems good to you but aren't sure, download the demo at the xbox live marketplace to try it out for yourself. Remember, with patience and time, you'll be hitting tre flips to boardslides in no time.
Conclusion: However, there’s no camera adjustment—not even one that lets you look both ways before crossing a street—so in addition to hindering your control somewhat, it feels claustrophobic at points. It seems that Black Box made a choice to constrict the viewpoint instead of putting the player in the situation of having to make other corrections or hit a “camera reset” button.
Excerpt: 3 on 3 NHL Arcade is a great idea. The latest EA hockey game, NHL 09 , has shed some pounds over the winter with a diet that cuts out all of the realism and simulation that devoted fans have come to expect from the perennial franchise. Our overall roster weighs in at a slim 40 players and two teams. There’s no room for stats, or much in the way of personality, here. That’s not to say that 3 on 3 NHL Arcade forgets to include any new content.
Excerpt: Electronic Arts a donc préféré soudoyer les puristes du skate-board, plutôt que les adorateurs de monster tricks à la mode SSX. Vous pourrez bien sûr enchaîner les tricks et augmenter vos coefficients multiplicateurs mais n’espérez pas décrocher un power boost à la fin, tout est ici orienté vers le réalisme. Vous pourrez ainsi contrôler la position de la planche avec le stick droit et la position du corps du skater avec le gauche.
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.
Excerpt: By the time I was seven I had made my decision to become a professional skateboarder. Too bad I was also the accident-prone fat kid . Now I’m older, a little more realistic, and thanks to $500 of DDR , significantly more athletic. I still love skating, but 20 years of watching faceplants and imploded crotches on TV, not to mention Jake Brown’s infamous slam , left me scared to leave the ground.
Conclusion: Skate is the first game that can ever stand up to the infamous Tony Hawk series. It is a very fun experience and a must play for any Tony Hawk fans or skaters who want a realistic approach at skating in video games. Although I personally prefer the classic arcade feel to Tony Hawk games, Skate is a great game for you to feel like you are actually skateboarding. I highly recommend Skate to all skateboarding enthusiasts.
