Skate It

 

The most immersive skating experience to date. When EA revolutionized the skateboard genre last year Wii owners were left out in the cold. Skate took the gaming world by storm...

Excellent sense of immersion ; Controls are simple and intuitive ; Balance board support is fun

Relistic visuals don't work on Wii ; Cities are barren ; Multi-player feels restricted

Skate It

 

Coming almost a full year after the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game, Skate It is neither a sequel nor a remake. Instead it's something of an expansion of the original game, though not using the same controls and not on the same system. It adds a few...

It takes place in San Vanelona, has you completing dozens of pointless challenges and has clumsy controls. But it's not the Skate you're thinking of; instead it's Skate It for the Wii. While not as fully realized as its Xbox 360/PS3 counterpart, Skate...

Skate It (Wii) Review

 

EA revolutionized the skating genre with Skate. Does the Wii version, Skate It, bring the revolution to Nintendo?

EA decided instead of simply porting Skate to the Wii, to build things from the ground up with Skate It. Some things such as the graphics don't work, but the overall control scheme works well. The balance board needs some tweaking, but that doesn't get...

Skate It

 

When it comes to skating on the DS, EA keeps it real.

Stylus is an excellent way to do tricks; challenge-based campaign moves along quickly; tricks and environments look impressive

Visuals can be lackluster; slopes and walls can be hard to differentiate between; background story and musical choices are limited

Skate It Impressions

 

On Monday night, Electronic Arts threw a press event in San Francisco, CA, giving members of the press a chance to get hands-on time with a number of the publisher's 2008 titles. On hand at the event, was the recently announced Skate spin-off for Wii...

Skate It Review (Wii)

 

For any Wii owners searching for something new to play this holiday season, look no further because Skate It, EA Montreal's follow-up to Skate, may finally give some of you a reason to bust out the Wii that has been gathering dust in your closet or...

Uniquely fun and addictive gameplay. Good amount of depth in career mode. Interesting locations to explor

Graphics not a strong suit. Inconsisent controls hamper experience. Restart button will get plenty of use

Skate It

 

There was a time when the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series was the best skateboard game experience you could find. Ever since Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 though, the series has been in decline to the point that the games are nowhere near the quality they...

In many ways Skate It is a derivative version of Skate and it's not as impressive an experience that Skate was. That said, it's still a good game and one that skateboard enthusiasts will enjoy. The Wii balance board really does add another dimension to...

Skate It Wii Review

 

Skateboarding has a lot in common with videogames. Both were considered a fad, before they exploded into a multi-million pound industry. The “face” of skateboarding as a videogame is the legendary Tony Hawk, but in 2007 a new challenger emerged. EA's...

Tony Hawk has yet to gain a strong foothold on the Wii, so this skateboarding game is a welcome addition. Its controls make playing feel very different, and while it does not match up to the 360 and PS3 versions there is a depth to the game that will...

Skate It

 

Hop on your board and get to it, you have many tricks, grinds, manuals and jumps to perform in your attempt to become the skater of the year.

Skate It

 

You won't be buying this game for its (un)exemplary graphics or "innovative" control method, but if you're prepared to sink hours into it, there's fun to be had.

Nice soundtrack. Large, expansive world to explore. Good customisation options

The control method will have most people reaching for the off switch. Average graphics

Practise makes perfect.
