Format PS3, Xbox 360
If there’s a limit to the value of depth in games, Skate 3 gets pretty close to it. For anyone except an obsessive aficionado of the sport it recreates, the point of being able to tighten your board’s wheels will seem pretty obscure. In fact, though, once you get through the knotty training, there’s a fantastic game here, full of thrilling stunts and the satisfaction of building a career. No great leap from its predecessors, but a treat nonetheless.
