Having spent a great deal of time recently playing EA’s new Skate video game on my 360, it has dawned on me that the long serving reign of Activision’s Tony Hawk series as king of he skate boarding video games world may have just come to an end.
I’m not the only one who shares these thoughts. The video games journalist’s have spoken, and their message is clear… Skate now owns park. Look at the metacritic scores of the two games for instance:
Skate - 85
Watch out Activision… because things can only get better for EA. This is the first iteration of Skate, and even with some obvious features missing (I wish I could jump off my board and run around) the game just feels a hell of a lot more realistic and simply more fun.
