the controls are kind of hard to get used to, but its definitely more fun and challenging than I thought.  It looks pretty decent as well.

went over to my friends and played it. its so good. its kinda like a updated thrasher. its actually hard to play and get used to. physics are a bit weird in replays and other angles, but its fine in the actual game play. Sleazy, you probably wont be disapointed

Thrasher:skate and destroy was fun but I think this new game SKATE will be very good.

Just got done downloading and playing the demo on my 360, and I am going to have to agree- best skateboarding game yet. Challenging but rewarding, and definitely a lot more realistic the THPS. It's pretty sick, really fun.

Really? The preview looks like Mike Carroll's doing nollie flips 7 feet off the ground, and the levels look like THPS1.

I was not really referring to how the tricks looked, (although, judging by the demo I didnít think they looked too unrealistic) but more to the game play. It is challenging just to pull of flip tricks at first, let alone a flip trick to manual to flip trick out. You sure as hell arenít going to be pulling off any ridiculous 50 trick lines like in THPS. The challenge makes it feel more realistic, like real skating is challenging.
The only complaint I have so far is that it is actually difficult sometimes to slam, like you can do a kickflip at speed, land primo, and just walk off without a slam.
Sometimes you land things sketchy which is pretty cool.

I played Skate over and over for hours tonight at a friends place. The game is so damn challenging that it makes it addictive. I think my favorite part is that you can actually see yourself getting better. The lack of a grind button seemed weird at first, but the more you get used to it, you figure out where to put your weight and how to lock in to each trick.

Manuals, by far, were the hardest for me, which just made it feel so much more realistic. You actually have to work for your tricks as well. It took me a good five minutes to figure out kickflip backtails, then another few for 270 out, bigspin out, etc.

games are so fun but such a waste of time. For all those hours I spent I've gained nothing. Take the system away and I'm just moving my thumbs all around like an idiot.

Aint hating on yall though. If you're a kid it's natural to be lured into the video game trap.
