The only difference between this game and earlier Skate games is that Skate 3 lacks any sort of reason to play, unless you take part in games with buddies online. Remember how the first and second Skate games had a story that you could complete? Yeah well, Skate 3 is completely missing any story. It almost seems as if the boring single player is just a tutorial for players to get used to the online features of the game."
