GameSpy Gives Perfect 5/5 to Skate

With skate, EA has delivered the next step in the evolution of skateboarding games, and though it took a while before we got it, it's been well worth the wait. With its organic controls, beautiful visuals and amazing presentation, it quickly becomes an addicting experience that's tough to stop playing, even during some of the most frustrating parts of the game. Though its online modes slightly tarnish on the experience, the rest of the game more than makes up for it. With everything it has to offer, skate proves to be the best skateboarding game out there, period.

4.5 out of 5. Game and controls itself+replay =awesome but online sucks.

A little high on total score but I agree with the points they give.

Well, I don't play online so the game might be perfect 5/5 for me. But, I don't play skating games and have only played America Wasteland from Tony Hawk games.

Then agains Gamespy didn't play the ps3 version.

Its fun and all but the "draw in and rendering" stinks.

Its cool having a game with minimal loading but EA needed to hide it behind smoke and mirrors. Reminds me of GTa for the PS2 which had no loading but had tons of pop ups and rendering of half buildings/bridges.

This is next gen, perhaps EA could realize that one day when they finally incorporate quality in their games.

Perhaps EA is too big for their own good and that is why their games suck.

Perfect example of how a 5 point rating system isn't ideal. Too many games get 4, 4.5, and 5.

That doenst make sense. What does it matter if a game gets a 9/10 or a 9.5/10. You would still buy it (if you like it)

All that matters is that if it is a 4/5 or more it is probably really good. 2/5 or lower is bad. You dont need all the in-betweens unless you are being nitpicky.

Its just one guys opinion so whether it gets a 8.2 or a 4.5/5 its no different to me.

Either skate is the only game "broken." on my ps3, or they just didn't play it. The framerate issues really do get in the way of gameplay. It is irritating. I guess you can overlook that (but can you really?) 5/5. Meh please dont buy this game based on the review, play the demo.

your credibility is now shot

Then realize there are over a thousand people on the EA SKATE FORUMS complaining about framerate trying to get a petition going.

gamesR4fun4029d ago

just play the game its a solid title but flawless lol
I could've acepted a 4.5 but really top this game deserves is a 3 IMO. (Gotta ask is M$ paying them to do bad ports? or are they really that incompetent.)
