Default Skate Review

Xbox 360
9.5 Presentation

The story is minimal, but we mean that in a good way. Everything is relaxed, funny, and full of spirit. This feels like a living, breathing skate community.

8.0 Graphics

Great details in the environments and the character models are solid. The ragdoll physics make every bail look delightfully painful.

8.5 Sound

An awesome sound track, some great ambient sounds, and lots of lively commentary.

9.0 Gameplay

For a brand new concept, skate plays beautifully. All that's missing are flatland tricks, true lip tricks, and some challenge for holding manuals and grinds.

9.0

Anyone with a decent amount of skill can blast through the career mode fairly quickly. But this isn't a game about objectives -- itís about skating. And that will likely eat up 30 hours of your life.

9.0 Outstanding OVERALL

7.0 Graphics

Lots of aliasing and blurring mix with some spotty framerate issues. San Vanelona is still a hot city, but it has some zits.

9.0 Gameplay

9.0 Lasting Appeal

8.8 Great OVERALL
