Well, I'm almost done with all the challenges, and yeah they are a bitch, but at least it's skill based rather than do/or don't.
The closest thing to skateboarding without actually putting your feet on a board is skate. With innovative controls that take advantage of the duel analog sticks, the power of next-gen hardware, and the ability to sculpt tricks that define your own style, skate. delivers an authentic boarding experience like no other videogame.
Individual style combined with physics-driven animations promise that no two tricks will ever be the same. And there's plenty of room to pull off those tricks—San Vanelona challenges you to explore, find, and own the best spots. You can even capture footage to create and show off your style with friends across the world—because without footage, it's fiction.
Get ready for all the fun, creativity, and culture of skateboarding without the hours of practice, broken bones, and hospital visits.
- Flickit: The days of button mashing are over. The intuitive Flickit dual analog control lets you perform skill-based trick executions that capture the real-world feel and true attitude of skating.
- Define your style of skating: Create your own style and personality with animation and physics that give you the freedom to decide how your skater looks, feels, and rides. Get creative as you develop your own tricks and string them together to create lines.
- Without footage, it's fiction: Capture your sickest moves in-game and bring them online for the world to see. Use innovative online video editing tools, and add music to create the ultimate skating vid.
- Create your own story: Skaters don't follow rules, they choose how they want to progress through the game. Open progression allows gamers to skate how they want to skate. Become famous and generate mainstream hype, or go the infamous route by outrunning security guards, owning spots, and building street cred. Depending on how you roll in the game, you'll start seeing your own coverage in Thrasher or The Skateboard Mag.
- Make San Vanelona your playground: Get chased by security guards, impress and/or annoy the citizens in this fully reactive city. San Vanelona is the ultimate skate mecca where you can ride with pros, discover skate shops, and own spots to make them yours.
- Roll with the pros: skate. features professional legends and upcoming pros including Danny Way, Mark Gonzales, Rob Dyrdek, Mike Carroll, P.J. Ladd, Chris Cole, Jason Dill, Pat Duffy, Jerry Hsu, Paul Rodriguez, Dennis Busenitz, Alex Chalmers, Chris Haslam, Colin McKay, John Rattray, Ryan Gallant, Ryan Smith, and Terry Kennedy.
- Online gameplay: skate. features an extensive online gameplay system including multiple online multiplayer modes. Gamers can hit up popular spots in the city with friends across the country.

I'm so friggin tired of the unrealism of THPS. Every time I beat the THPS games, I would go and play free-skate with the "Sim Mode" cheat on to pull some sick real life lines instead of the stupidly superhuman stuff. Mark this is my first sim type of game I look forward to.
Color me impressed and very happy, being a former skateboard fanatic. Huge thumbs up to the guy who decided to use this camera angle.
