Skate is one of those games that managed to really surprise me this year, especially in a year where there haven't been any big surprises. Skate manages to really come out with all engines firing, and manages to make a great skateboarding game.
There are really two categories of RPG's, the great ones, and the less than favorable ones. Jeanne d'Arc manages to get in the top category, which just shows that Sony really pushed this game to become great, and they succeed in doing that.
Although not a perfect package, Splinter Cell Conviction is a great game that offers a great single player experience as well as a solid cooperative game that all combines into another must have action game.
