It’s a far cry from Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater but in a good way. I dig the control scheme of the game, but it seems like it is very difficult to master. The fun thing about Tony Hawk is being able to bust out insane, million point combos and link tricks for like ten minutes straight. I was having trouble linking three tricks in Skate, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t having fun. I have purchased every Tony Hawk game since I played the first one at a friend’s house way back in the days of the original Sony PlayStation, and Skate isn’t gonna change that. This year I think I will buy both Tony Hawk and Skate because I am not completely sold on the gameplay. That which is fun and different in a demo might become tedious and frustrating in a full game, so I’m not gonna pass Tony Hawk up just yet.
