CVG Reviews Skate

Skate is a nightmare to review, but a joy to play. However gushing the description, you can't explain the feeling - the physical sensation of relief, exhilaration and pride - of nailing a perfect trick on your anguished 37th go.

Put simply - it feels like skateboarding.

I've got this pre-ordered from the US (avoid overpricing in the UK lol) and played the demo which is great, can't wait!

It's truly amazing. It feels so much more rewarding when you land big tricks in Skate than in Tony Hawk.

Played the demo on both systems and they both were awesome and played it a bunch. Bought the game yesterday for the Playstation along with Halo 3 but it goes without saying that I didn't get around to playing the full game yet ^.-

it will take some people a little while to get into it, and there's a pretty steep learning curve, but it is a fantastic game and will most likely make you never feel the need to go back to tony hawk again. just an awesome, awesome game.
