I am not a skateboarder. In fact I have enough trouble balancing on two feet most of the time, let alone on a wooden board with wheels. So I am not part of the demographic that this game is aimed at. The only reason I own the original Skate game is that it came packaged with my PS3. That being said, I did enjoy playing the game, but not enough to persuade me into buying the first sequel as, on playing the demo, it all kind of felt the same. When the opportunity arose for me to try out and review the third game in the series, I was more than happy to give it a go.
