    It feels like the kind of game that our touchscreen devices were made for, and looks gorgeous to boot.

    It might take a while to learn even the basics, but True Skate is a game about precision and practice that offers the greatest rewards to those who put in the hard work.

    In many ways, True Skate represents the very best of what can be achieved with mobile gaming. It makes a virtue out of touchscreen controls, rather than a burden, and it's hard to see how any traditional controller could provide a more tactile and intuitive feel for the skate experience.

    This may be a casual game, but for skateboard fans it is so realistic it is almost as fun as the real thing. The best part is that you don't leave the skate park with bruises and road rash.

    True Axis likely has another hit on its hands. True Skate makes you feel like you can really skate, and at least for this writer, that's quite the accomplishment.

    True Skate walks a thin line between simulation and sandbox, producing a very realistic skating title, but falling short of providing players with decent objectives outside of 'mucking about'.

    True Skate is a marvel showcasing what can only be done on a touch screen, a game that mimics the real life activity closely.

    Overall, True Skate is a stunningly good looking game that comes incredibly close to recreating the feel of real skateboarding. There might not be a lot to do, but it does provide for a good time.

    While True Skate takes a decidedly realistic spin on performing kickflips and ollies on iOS, the skateboarding sim is missing some of the game mechanics that would take it from an average experience to a compelling one. Skate if you must, but we're hoping they use this platform for bigger and better things.

    True Skate could be something special, but right now we can only recommend it for the most hardcore of skating fans.

This game has amazing ideas and is very fun to mess around In, but sadly, it feels like it should be free. It comes with only ONE park to ride in which limits fun, and an additional park is there for and additional cost. Also the costumization for your board costs way to much, making it almost necessary to spend even more money! It's a fun game but could be sooo much better! Fun, but falls from greatness!
