Game Review (Skate 3 - 360)

Graphics: 3.75/5 I don't know if it's just my 360 or what, but Skate 3 is very underwhelming. The game doesn't look sharp, the game seems fairly bland, and it just looks about average... in fact, I feel like I remember Skate 1 looking better.

Sound: 4.25/5 You get a nice blend of music styles on the soundtrack, as well as great voice acting from pro skaters as well as some no-names. Not extraordinarily good, but I approve.

Control: 4.5/5 Skate 3's controls are about identical to games past. The controls are pretty precise, and it's obviously what's made Skate stand apart from the Tony Hawk games.

Fun: 4/5 Skate 3 is a good game. There isn't much to say about it. The story's pretty straightforward, and you'll have all of the stuff unlocked before too long. There's not much of anything new in this game that wasn't in Skate 2, so if you have that game, you probably have no need to get Skate 3, but if you haven't played Skate since the original, then for the $40 or less you'll pay for Skate 3 now, you should get it. It's not difficult, it's not extremely lengthy, but it's entertaining. (That's what she said.) I doubt you'll sit and play this game for hours at a time, but it adds variety to your game library if you don't already have Skate 1 or 2 there.
