Indeed, Skate 3 is clearly geared totally toward online play and community interaction. In career mode you're often tasked with completing objectives that require more than one skater where a friend can drop in and help you out. Playing these objectives with unpredictable A.I. just doesn't have the same appeal as hooking up together and having a laugh trying to rack up points by chaining together tricks or battling against each other tooth and nail."
