As Skate cruises to retail, IGN catch up with one of the pros in the game.
IGN AU: To me, Skate feels incredibly authentic, but I'm only someone who has skated on and off over the years, never getting particularly good at it. As a professional who lives and breathes skateboarding, what's your take on the game?
John Rattray: I like the way that the game functions, the way that you have to learn to do basic tricks first, and work from there, so it gives you a good understanding of the progression of skateboarding from a realistic perspective. And you don't have to pull muscles, break ankles, rehab ligaments, any of that stuff, so that's nice too.
