GameRevolution writes: "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. The tricks haven’t been tweaked much at all since Skate 2, and the technical issues and over-ambitious online play suggest that Skate 3 is reaching too far too fast. After seeing the venerable Tony Hawk Pro Skater series sink to lower and lower depths, it’s a disappointingly familiar sight seeing another skating series follow in its footsteps. But the real shame is that the Skate series never had a chance to reach its full potential before its steady decline".
