Cmon can they make a realy good skating game on the pc agai? TBH I really liked Underground 2 I loughed so hard there :)
@Kevin-V I demand to be called Cupcake in any and all Gamespot reviews! I'll even pay premium to be called Honey!
omfg is this sh#t for real ..... it cant be can it?? do yourself a favour and leave this turd on the shelf
Sounds like the second half of the game is a huge failure. Why would the designers switch the gameplay like that from the first have to the second half?
Wow, this looks absolutely rubbish. I'm not a skater at all, and I almost dislike the skate culture, but a good skate game like Skate 3 is really fun. This looks stupid.
@ Kevin-V If in fact you are the real Kevin V, then I just wanted to say you are my hero and have been my favorite reviewer since you reviewed Dragon Age. I was just teasing and now I feel bad as the real you may have actually read my fun poking comment...
seriously any skateboarding game that is not "skate" should not even be made the only people that should buy these games at 60 dollers are the ones that have to review it for a living
I am going to have to agree with Kevin, at first, its really fun, and a great button masher at that, but if it just took out all the shaping, it would be a pretty good comeback to the arcade skateboarding game franchise, instead it turns into a game that it shouldn't be, if your like me and still like button mashing skateboarding games, play THPG, its better offers more, and come to think of it, they both look a little the same, don't they? Weird.
I just beat this game last night and I agree with the review. I got so tired of destroying those darn de-influencer pylons by the end of the game. The skating can be involved if you buy all the tricks, but it's very bare bones and you can beat the entire game without buying anything at all. I also got tired of taking out the mini-zepplins because I could only ever find one way to destroy them and the ramps that appear aren't ever high enough to jump into them. I'm glad to see a button-mashing skating game again, but there's a lot they could do better in (what i consider to be) the inevitable sequel.
@Murder422 -- I've decided to mix up salutations from review to review. It was "master" in Force Unleashed II, but in others, I will be calling you "homey," "dude," "bro," and "cupcake."
Stride Gum Billboards, and Wendys fast food? What the? No thanks! It's bad enough that in Madden everything is sponsored all to hell, but that's kind of realistic. This? This is just; obvious and pathetic product placement.
I'll try the demo, but tbh it looks rubbish 0.o Think I'll stick with Skate 3 for now!! Come to think of it Shaun White Snowboarding was crap too...
You know a game is bad when there's only 12 comments including mine. It's almost like gamespot ended up losing money just on reviewing it!
this is a game which had a 30 percent chance of being a good and awesome game or a game were people are now on drugs to find the perfect skating spot
