"Skate" is EA's entry into action sports games. The game is far different than the Tony Hawk games because of its innovative FlickIt control system. If you haven't played this game before, FlickIt is a simplified control system that utilizes both analog thumbsticks. You use one thumbstick to control the direction your skater is heading, and the other is used to perform tricks. No more frequent button mashing combos to memorize. However, it may take you a while to get used to using the thumbsticks, so before you start a career, you should go through the Tutorial first. You'll learn how to use the thumbsticks to move your character and perform tricks. You use two of the buttons on your controller to push your character to gain speed. Once you've finished the Tutorial, go to Free Skate mode and try out what you've learned. Once you've got used to the FlickIt system, start your Career and own the streets and skate parks. The graphics are incredible, almost life-like and the soundtrack is good. Xbox 360 users can use custom soundtracks if they wish. My only complaint is that they could have made the FlickIt system a little easier to master. If you're into skateboarding and are looking for a challenging game and an alternative to the Tony Hawk franchise, then this game is perfect for you.

Favorite game of all times. have not played it in years but when I got it again i could not stop. You will enjoy this game and everyone of my friends did. This game is a classic and everyone should have the chance to sit down and play it. See for yourself its amazing. over 300hrs of playtime with this series.

The game was shipped promptly. The game I purchased was listed as "like new." It came in very good condition. No scratches on the disk or case. Game manual had very minor wear from being opened and flipped through. I would recommend this seller and purchase from them again.

As the title says, this game is amazing. I have played this game for countless hours, and I still have a great time playing it. There are a couple of annoying things in the game, but every game is going to have some parts like that. It would be nice if you could walk sometimes instead of skating everywhere. Overall I would recommend this game to anybody regardless if you like skateboarding or not.

My son loves this game and is anxiously awaiting its sequel Skate II due out in the next couple of months. I am amazed by the detail and graphics...it also teaches you by "real voice" commands from a professional skate boarder how to actually do these tricks. It also shows you what happens if your atempt fails, which is very important for young people to see!!
