    This latest chapter improves on virtually every aspect of its near-flawless fundamentals, while delivering more modes, missions, and multiplayer components, proving to fans that its days of resting on its laurels aren't here quite yet.
  2. The barebones have always worked and EA has gone by the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" idea and kept most of it the same. Instead, EA have thrown in a bunch of interesting extras that make a purchase worthwhile.
  3. There's more content here than you could shake a stick at. What's more, it is all incredibly well put-together; from the single-player career to deep customization and truly robust online play.

    The difficulty tuning makes it a great buy for fanatics and noobs. Not so, those in the middle. [July 2010, p.80]

    Doesn't take gamers anywhere as exotic or over-the-top. And that's its charm. The realistic setting and complex control scheme make for an engaging single-player experience, but it's the wide range of online multiplayer options that make Skate gleam the cube.
  6. The best skateboarding game you can buy. A good game in its own right, and a worthy sequel for all its worth.
  7. With Skate 2 released just a little over a year ago, it's clear that Skate 3 was pumped out too quickly. The ideas are great, but the lack of polish is evident with every flip, flop, and flub.

    I love this game. It gives you loads of customization options so you can create the skater you want, even if you are not a big fan ofI love this game. It gives you loads of customization options so you can create the skater you want, even if you are not a big fan of skateboarding it has hilarious missions such as the hall of meat challenges where you fling yourself off of buildings causing as much damage to your skater as possible. You can edit the map in real time to create massive skate parks on the fly. The only downside to this game is the fact EA closed the logo creator down but that is not the games fault that is EA's fault so go and shout at them. Expand

It doesn't matter that the physics are floppy, this game is a real humourous mish-mash of accidents, catastrophes and hilarity. It, however, lacks the objective. For a old game, its really fun.

    Skate 3 was, to me, the last of the great Skateboarding game craze that lasted about 10 years. I don't have much to say about this one otherSkate 3 was, to me, the last of the great Skateboarding game craze that lasted about 10 years. I don't have much to say about this one other than it's just more of what you love, assuming you're a fan of Skate games.

    There's new tricks, a whole new map, a wider variety of customization, a skate park editor, more online features, etc. etc. etc. I still prefer Skate 2 because I think it has a much more interesting map and a grittier feel. I also feel like Skate 2 is more refined, despite having a couple less features. Skate 3 is famously a rushed glitch fest.

    If you like Skate games, you've already played this one so there's no reason to recommend it to you. If you haven't tried the Skate games, check them out. They're all worth playing through.
    I beat this game in February of 2020 after beating it many times before.

    i have a son who is 6 years old. a little too young for video games you might think?-- not hardly. he is AMAZINGLY gifted in the gaming worldi have a son who is 6 years old. a little too young for video games you might think?-- not hardly. he is AMAZINGLY gifted in the gaming world (especially with Minecraft)... He recently saw a video of Skate3 and has been bugging the crap out of me for it ever since. in the past i've bought him games thinking they looked fairly easy for him to catch onto and then proven wrong shortly after the purchase. I'm lost on video games that are any newer than Nintendo's Super Mario 3 so I have no clue how to judge the looks of difficulty pf it... any input? Expand
