Skate 3 Demo Direct-Feed Gameplay
We take on EA Black Box's Skate 3 demo... news is, the demo beat us. We know you'll fare much better than us, but that won't stop us from calling this game "Run 3".

    Well I have to play the demo for a third time, but my first two experiences were not great. i thought Skate 2 was far and away a great improvement over a pretty good game. My only gripe really was the walking mechanics, which are much much better.

    Up till playing the demo, Skate 3 was a day one purchase. Now I am not so sure. And here were my issues.

    1) Difficulty settings.
    I love the classic setting cause its what I was used to more or less. I tried advanced being a veteran skater and I couldn't pull anything. I mean anything. I could line something up perfect and couldn't get a grind off. So I go back to classic and feel like the board is trying to get that grind. Then I try easy just too see what it is like and then I know the board wants that grind. hell I dint have to show up the board had this covered way before I got there. So then I go back to classic and I feel like I have auto aim on, but advanced is just infuriating.

    2) Physics and animations seemed very marshmallowy. What i mean is that I felt I lacked weight. Not enough to feel like a Tony Hawk game but just enough to make me go, "is it just me?"

    3) Camera position. Two choices....clausterphobic skater ass in the way of lining up my line and God's camera. It feels like the far camera is further than it was in Skate 2. Anyway, if it was all the same, why cant we just dial in our own camera or maybe just some middle freakin ground?

    I post these thoughts for feedback. cause maybe I was just having a nutty and its all gravy, so perspectives are welcome.

    Game run more smoother on the PS3, less flickering than in past games.

    I liked the demo. Seems there are, like usual, three types of people. One, people that want everything to never change and stay the same. Two, people who accept the change and move along with it. Three, realize this isn't their type of game and won't buy it. Sure it has some improvements over skate 2 but still essentially the same game, fine by me. It's a new city to skate in, that is not a small difference. if this was San Vanelona I would be skeptical. This is a sports game, albeit action sports, every sports game has minor improvements in them each year. But unlike Madden or NBA LIve, skate fans get a whole new city. I'll take something completely new to skate around than better tackling or a slick crossover any day.

    Much like every EA game...we're going to be paying $60 per year for minor improvements.

    That was the best demo direct-feed evaaaa! I ended up doing the same thing, kinda sad the best part about the game if running around.

    the bail challenges are hilarious, what other game has 'jump off this clocktower and smash into the vending machines' as an objective
