Skate, a new skateboard simulation game from EA, has been nicknamed "the anti-tony hawk" by many people in the gaming community. The game itself presents skateboarding in a much more realistic fashion when compared to the Tony Hawk video game series.
The game has great graphics but the true appeal lies in the dual-analog control system that the game uses. It is harder to pull off tricks with this system but it feels much smoother and more realistic than simply pressing one or two buttons.
I would recommend this game to anyone that is looking for a skateboarding game that is a bit more realistic that Tony Hawk series. The game is difficult and challenging but is easily the best skateboarding game released to date.
