148Apps Review SummaryOur Rating: :: Skate Or Die :: Read Our Full Review >>
In a genre where reality has been replaced with the absurd, Electronic Art Inc.'s Skate It forges a path back to reality, focusing on core gameplay, which, ironically, is exactly what any skater would do. The franchise's effort to return skating to it's roots with game play mechanics focusing on the core, natural, analog movement that defines skateboarding, instead of relying on memorizing control sequences to become successful in the game, is a success.
What's NewGAME UPDATE NOW AVAILABLE – Improvements, additions, and optimizations include:
• Optional Analog Stick Control System
• Implementation of new Grab System
• Various bug fixes to enhance stability
