Skate demo impressions

As promised the Skate demo arrived on the Xbox Live Marketplace this morning, and here's a playtest so you can hear some initial hands-on thoughts.

Coming from those talented chaps at EA, Skate looks to fill that gap left by Activision Tony Hawk series that's became more and more obsessed with wild and wicked combos that simply wouldn't be achievable out on the skate parks in the real world.

The story is too old to be commented.

i'm downloading it at the's taking ages. Can't wait to play after your comment. I really liked Thrasher Skate and Destroy on ps1, more realistic than Tony Hawk games.

demo is amazing!

alot of people will get put off by the difficulty though which is a shame as its a great gaming experience

yeah i agree with u. Im starting to get the hang of it ;P just figure out how it 360 shuvit lol. I also did a verial heel flip a couple of times with out knowing it lol. Ooooo and i did one 360 flip ;). I love the way the rails feel too. i find the best aproach is wen trying to land on the rail, not to use the left stick at all and just use the right stick. I can pull off crooked grinds and stuff with ease now :) laterz!

What makes it hard to pull off the tricks? The controls?
