This time on Rad Rat Video, we finally talk
about Skate 3, a game that a lot of you guys have been wanting me to play. So let’s get right into it. [Music] Welcome back to Rad Rat Video, the channel where you can learn something new about skateboarding
three times a week. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, we take
a look at something in skateboarding world and culture, from learning tricks to learning
about different brands, to learning about skateboarding video games such as Skate 3. A lot of you guys have been asking me to play
this one and I’m glad to finally get it finished. So i’ve reviewed every other game in the series:
Skate, Skate It, Skate 2, and now Skate 3 and let’s get into it. This game has a lot of new features and things,
but is it the best? I’ll talk about that in the end. One thing I want to point out though is that
this game has a lot of online features that don’t work anymore, so I’m reviewing it as
if you’re buying a brand new right now. I did mess around with a lot of that stuff
back when it was new. This is my original copy from 2010. But I wanted to point that out there’s a lot
of stuff that isn’t quite working anymore. But I’m gonna walk you through all those features
right now. You get a choice of camera perspective, which
is something a lot of people complained about. I didn’t mind the low camera that much,
but given the option, I went with the higher one. It’s less authentic, but it helps you line
stuff up a little better, so it’s worth it. You can also pick your difficulty. The hardcore mode is what a lot of you guys
would probably want to go with, and it does a few things. First it makes flip tricks harder. You have to flick the controller a lot more
just to get enough air to get off the ground. It’s actually possible to bail something
as simple as a varial kickflip on flat if you don’t flick it enough. So it’s a lot more work to do advanced flip
tricks into grinds, and out of them too. A 360 flip out of a tailslide is actually
pretty tough because it has to be perfect. This slows you down in contests a lot. My usual strategy in the last two games was
to do a 360 nollie 360 hardflip into a grind and then flip out, but it’s much harder
here. I actually have to respect how high some stuff
is and plan for it. Another big change is the fact that you don’t
stick to rails anymore. In the first two games, or the lower difficulty
levels in this one, you just have to get close to a rail and you’ll snap to it. It helps, most of the time. But sometimes, if you’re trying to ollie
up onto a ledge or manual it, you might have gotten stuck doing a grind every time. Now, you have a lot more control, but you
also need to have the precision to manage it. Here’s an example. This is a best trick event where I have to
grind this rail. But the game doesn’t set you up perfectly
straight. Even if you don’t touch the left stick,
you’ll still be a little bit off and miss the rail. I had to restart this event probably ten times
before I just so happened to get my aim right. In times like this, where you’re skating
enormous obstacles, having the hardcore control is kind of a pain. And you have to skate this particular rail
in at least 3 separate events. But you can always turn the difficulty down
in the menu if you have to. I never did. Hardcore mode is great for the filming stuff
though. Your footage will look more natural and gives
you a lot more of a challenge on regular sized stuff, instead of having to do bigger and
bigger gaps. I’ll talk about filming stuff a bit later. The story, this time around, is a little bit
different… but not really. The intro is a long look at logging and manufacturing,
and it’s not really obvious why for a while. But it’s showing the process of making a
deck from start to finish. Then it cuts to a skater about to do a trick
over a shark. And he bails. As it turns out, this is you, and Reda approaches
and says this. “What are we doing this for somebody else
for? Let’s do our own thing. Let’s start our own board company.” So that’s the goal of the game. Get coverage, win contests, and all the same
stuff you always did. But this time, you get paid in deck sales,
not in money. And you unlock more events as your company
gets bigger. That’s a really good way to go. In the other games, I had hundreds of thousands
of dollars by the end of the game, and nothing to buy with it. I didn’t care to buy every single deck and
wheel, so it just went to waste. But the deck sales feel more meaningful. You get to pick your company name and pick
a pre designed logo. I wish you could actually design a logo, because
it ends up being stickered all over town and on your posters and stuff. Supposedly, you could go to skate.ea.com and
do that kind of stuff back in the day. But it’s not really available anymore. Another big change – Reda is no longer your
cameraman. And the game makes it really clear that it’s
because people complained too much. “Number one: Don’t talk too much. People don’t like that.” “OK.” “And the most important thing: Don’t talk
too much!” So he passes the torch to Shingo, who is the
guy you might remember from the first two games that you always beat in SKATE. He doesn’t have a lot of personality, and
your skater doesn’t ever speak a single word, so I found myself missing Reda’s comments
as I skated around. But he’s still in the game. You only hear him when you hit business milestones
though. Something else that has changed is the focus
on building skateparks. You have been able to tweak spots and put
up extra ramps and rails and stuff like that. But this takes it to another level. You get this warehouse and eventually other
spots, and you can build whatever you want in it. As you play the game, you’ll unlock more
types of ramps and stuff that you can place here. I never had a ton of interest in doing this,
since there’s so much stuff to skate as is, but it’s a cool option at least. I’ll show more of this later. Aside from these additions, there are still
some new events, but the old ones return too. Let’s talk about them all. The photo events are slightly updated. I’ve complained about the photography of
these for both of the last games. The shots are basically never set up right. You can’t see the landings most of the time. It’s just you in the air, doing something
and going somewhere. But they do give you a little control now. You can zoom out, aim the camera, tweak the
color and focus and stuff like that. It helps, but it’s not great still. There are some other events that are better
though. One thing I want to point out is the “Killed
It” feature. This isn’t new, but it’s definitely updated. In the past, it was pretty much just a higher
score total. But here’s how it works now. When you start an event, you can just clear
the gap and it’ll count as “Owned It”. But if you want to take it to the next level,
the “Killed It” challenge is harder, or just more specific. You don’t just have to do a grind, you have
to do a specific grind or slide. Don’t just grind this, do a tailslide to
late flip out. I like this. It’s helping train you on the controls,
but it’s giving you more of a challenge, and rewarding people who have more skill with
the game. Killing film challenges in hardcore mode can
be genuinely difficult and rewarding, which is cool. When you kill an event, you get more board
sales, helping you unlock stuff sooner. This is a really nice tweak. But it would be nice to see what the extra
challenges were when you pick the event. As soon as you start, you have to pause and
go to the objectives screen to see what you actually have to do. And the list at the bottom of the screen will
be wrong, since this is just the regular objectives. I wish there was a way to switch this over
to show the Killed challenges, but I never found a way to. So that’s kind of annoying, but it’s not
a big deal. Another minor issue is the fact that certain
kinds of events don’t have a “Killed” option. So you’ll beat it, see “Owned” on the
screen, and wonder if you missed something. I restarted events a couple times to try to
Kill it, only realizing that there was nothing to Kill. And they also tweaked those really annoying
countdowns from the last game. Some types of events have countdowns, but
for the most part, you just wait a second and it says ‘Go’. In a lot of the events, you can jump back
to your markers, and if you bail, it’s just a quick fade to black. All these things make the career mode play
so much smoother. As does the updated running control. It feels a lot more smooth, and you can sprint,
then hop on your board. You can go from zero to 60 in a second instead
of having to push a bunch of times. It feels a lot better. I’m really glad they updated this. Another update is the ‘dark catch.’ If you tap R1 while the board is flipping,
you’ll catch it upside down. The only real purpose of this is to do darkslides. But I also like to do dark catch shove it
outs as kind of a casper flip. Oh, let’s check in on the spin directions. This time, half cabs have been changed to
make them wrong, but they added in spin directions for every other stance, and it seems to be
right now. But there is still another weird issue. If you do a big enough spin, like here on
the megaramp, it will call it a cab. My character is goofy, so I don’t know why
it’s doing that. Unfortunately, follow challenges are back. You start the game following Reda around so
he can show you some spots. And even though you’re running your own
company, you still skate with other pros to try to get shoe sponsor hookups. But just look at this list. Most of them are just following them. Since I hate doing that, I just skipped them. You can still beat the game if you do, luckily. The next returning event is the death races. I skipped all of these too. I hate them. See my other Skate series reviews to see more
about these. You can’t make me do them again. Also returning are the Own the Spots. You just have to get a high score on a certain
thing. Nothing too crazy here, but it helps encourage
you to explore. But in addition to owning spots, you can also
own lots. This is kind of cool. You get a location, like the campus or a skatepark
or something, and you get a bunch of smaller challenges. It’s simple stuff, like accumulating a certain
score amount, hitting all the marked obstacles and stuff like that. But it feels like you get a feel for that
location and that you do own it when you’re done. These are a pretty cool addition. They also added games of 1UP. The games of SKATE in the past couple games
were horrible, and almost unplayable at times. So you’ll be playing 1UP now. Basically, someone sets a line, and you take
turns trying to outscore each other. You only need to win 3 rounds – for 1, U and
P, so it’s a lot shorter, and much less frustrating. Another good addition. The biggest new addition is the team stuff. As you hit sales milestones, you sponsor more
and more skaters for your team, and you get to use them in different challenges. I’m lazy, so I just pick from the list of
pre-made skaters. There are no girls on this list, which I thought
was a little weird. So my team is all generic dudes. But that’s fine. One of the things you do with your team is
team contests. You pick your teammate, and you do co-op runs. I just picked my first guy every time, because
they’re all the same. It’s not like you get a vert skater and
a street skater and a tech skater or anything like that. It makes literally no difference who you pick. And it barely matters if you have anyone anyway. Watch my teammate’s scores throughout this
footage. A lot of the time, he does absolutely nothing
at all. In this event, I almost had the other team
beat by myself, but I really needed Bubba to land a trick. Literally anything. And there are times when he just doesn’t. I have no idea where he is and what he’s
doing. On very rare occasions, one of the opposite
team will do that too, but it happens to you constantly. He doesn’t keep up with you. He doesn’t play off of you and perform better
when you get more points or anything like that. It’s just a gamble. There are also times when I’m not doing
very well, and he actually carries me through the event. I always find this kind of stuff annoying. I want to sink or swim based on how well I’m
playing, not having to rely on a random number generator. But the contests themselves are more varied
than ever. There are best tricks, best grinds, longest
grinds, highest airs, best run, and all kinds of stuff like that. Sometimes you’re alone, sometimes it’s
your team against another team. Sometimes you’re doing real contests, like
the Maloof Money Cup or the Goofy vs. Regular competition. Sometimes they’re fake, and sponsored by
something like Monster, which you might expect, and Miracle Whip! Which you probably wouldn’t expect. Do you remember when Miracle Whip was trying
to be “X-TREME”? They had all these aggressive ads about how
they were better than mayo and stuff like that. And their ads are on billboards all over Port
Carverton, the new city for the game. And they sponsor this contest. This game really goes overboard with the selling
out. If I was more paranoid, I might say that they
get you to make your own billboards to try to get you to pay more attention to them in
the game, and then you are more susceptible to these real ads placed in the game too. I don’t know about all that, but it’s
hard not to notice this stuff as you play. Back to the team stuff though. The other big new challenge is to get coverage
for the team. This takes kind of a strange turn in the gameplay. So, to take a picture or billboard shot, you
switch to one of your team mates. Then you place a camera wherever you want,
do a trick wherever you want, then take a picture. If you just want to bang these out, you can
do them all back to back, just taking pictures of nothing. You don’t even have to land the trick. You just take a picture of anything, and you
beat it. In a way, I like this, because you can just
think about doing something that looks cool, rather than worrying about getting a high
score and doing a 720 gazelle heelflip to method grab or something like that. So that’s kind of cool. And this finally fixes the photography problems
with the game. You can set the camera wherever you want and
get something that actually looks good. There are team film challenges too. Just like the pictures, you just go wherever
you want, and just film a certain number of tricks. It can be stationary ollies on flat and still
count. But you’ll probably try to at least put
something interesting together. As you do all of this, you hit sales milestones,
and you start to take over the city, with your stickers and ads appearing everywhere. At one point, you jump the shark again for
a cover. And you do it in front of your own ad. This really helps you feel like you’re accomplishing
something. You finish your video, get the cover of Thrasher,
and next thing you know, you’ve sold 1 million decks. This is essentially the main goal of the game
– and it unlocks the last event, the Monster contest series. You can win that one, but the game is pretty
much over at this point. It’s kind of strange. It just stops, and there’s a ton of stuff
left to do. I didn’t do a single race, and I skipped
a lot of the pro challenges. But nothing stops you from doing all that
stuff later, or even going back and Killing challenges that you only owned before. But there’s much more to do than that. Like playing the DLC. I have a few purchases on this one that I
can show you. First is the Sanatorium, which is a creepy
insane asylum that you skate at night. It has a different feel from the rest of the
game, which is cool. There are some events to do here, like a photography
challenge and some other stuff. The DIY park from Skate 1 is re-created here
for good measure. Look at this challenge though. I have to do a nosegrind, 180 to 5-0. What does that mean? Fakie 5-0 or switch 5-0? It took a while to get this gap to work, and
I guessed that it would mean switch, but it meant fakie. So it didn’t count. You get a couple of little issues like that
as you go. But this level is pretty cool. I recommend it. Next is Danny Way’s Hawaiian Dream. This is the biggest Mega complex in the series. I get tired of all the super gigantic stuff
that you skate in the game, but I was pretty desperate for more stuff to skate, so I bought
it years ago. There’s actually a lot going on in here,
like a street demo, where you skate this big plaza area. You do a transition demo in this area here. I don’t like these ramps. For some reason, it’s basically impossible
to stay in them. You just air out of everything. You also air out of the Mega… tunnel or
whatever you’d call this. I wanted to get as much speed as possible
to see how big of a spin I could do. I did a couple of 1080s, but you can never
actually land back in transition. I did one over here though. This level is cool, just because there’s
a lot of content here. There are photo and video challenges, and
a lot of stuff to mess around with. The last DLC I bought was the filmer pack. And I can finally talk about this! I had it for Skate 2, but I didn’t rebuy
it for the review. This time, I just still have my original version,
so I can show it off. Here’s how it works. If you have the pack installed, you can go
into the replay editor and pick from the advanced cameras. You basically just pick the advanced free
camera, and you can place keyframes of what you want the angle to look like at certain
points. The game does a great job of stringing those
keyframes together naturally and making it feel like there’s a camera man speeding
up, slowing down and turning, instead of just a perfect floating camera. This is a lot of fun to mess around with. You used to be able to save them to the Skate.Reel,
as long as you had the sharing pack, and you could even upload to YouTube directly. I know I did this stuff a lot back when it
was new. Here’s some stuff I filmed back in the day. I had these all saved as replays. Speaking of the DLC, I need to mention the
sharing pack again. If you wanted to get online and download other
people’s levels and upload your own stuff, you needed to get the sharing pack. The game comes with a code, but if you bought
it used, you’d have to buy the code again. As much as I love this game, all the sponsorships
and money grabbing DLC stuff like this really sucked. But if you’ve got all that stuff, you could
skate this game for years, filming stuff all over the city and saving it. Especially if you get into the park editing. You could spend weeks tweaking your park and
skating around in it. I never got into it too much, but this is
how it works. You can place different kinds of items, tweak
and recolor them, and then skate them however you want. I asked Valleyboy for some footage of this,
like I did for Skate 2, and he sent me all kinds of stuff from the CAP Faction. CAP meaning Create A Park. This should give you a better idea of the
kind of stuff you can do if you have the patience. So which game in the Skate series is the best? Not pictured is Skated It the Wii, which is
never going to win anything, and I actually sold my copy. But which of these games is the best? If you don’t have to decide, if you’ve never
played any of them, play them all. And play them in order, because there’s a
lot of fun to be had with all of them. But for me, if I had to pick, it’s a tough
call. Skate 3: it does a lot of really good things. The way that you can run and jump on your
board and instantly be up to speed. The hardcore mode. The way that everything is a little bit better
from a gameplay flow perspective, the career mode all that kind of stuff is a bit more
refined and tweaked in this game. And I definitely respect it for that, but
skate 2, I would have to say, has the best city. Once you’re done with the career mode, most
of your gameplay is just going to be skating around and having fun and I think the city
in this game is a lot more varied, and there’s a lot more stuff to do. Even if it’s not physically bigger, it feels
bigger because it’s more realistic sized stuff. Skate 3 is all about dropping in on a 60-foot
tall dam and then ollieing over a bridge over here, and that stuff can get really annoying
because I like to do something that’s more realistic and relatable for skateboarding. But it’s also annoying because every time
you try to reset to your marker, it has to load because you traveled a half-mile. I just like the city in Skate 2 a lot more,
so it’s a tough call. But I’m going to give you some scores right
now. Skate 1, I would have to give a seven and
a half. And the only reason why it’s that low is because
of the other games. If this was the last game in the series, I
would probably say this was the best skateboarding game ever made, but compared to the other
ones it’s a bit lower. There’s not much of a reason to go back to
this one. Not being able to get off your board and stuff
is a pretty major annoyance at this point. Skate 2 is amazing in pretty much every way. There are some annoyances with the career
mode. There’s some stuff that’s kind of needed some
refinement, but I would give it a 9 and a half just because of how much fun you have
skating around and just doing your own thing. Skate 3, despite having all those new refinements
that it really needed, I’ll give this one a 9. Simply because of the city and the way that
they designed. Everything’s a mega something. I get kind of annoyed with that, so it’s a
tough call for me. I’ll go Skate 2 as being the best one in this
series, but let me know your comments about that below. So I’m going to try to get back to some other
skateboard series now that this one is done, and hopefully one day there will be a Skate
4 that I can do. But in the meantime, here’s two more videos
you can check out that are recommended by youtube. There’s also a big logo in the middle of the
screen you can tap that and subscribe and you can also go to radratvideo.com and you
can see when I’m up to over there, and check out some new updates there as well. So that’s it for now, and thank you for watching.

    The verdict is in: Skate 3 has the best mechanics, Skate 2 has the better map. After almost 8 years of playing skate 3, I am still having fun going online and playing with people, finding new spots, and making sick replays with the replay editor

    Playing S.K.A.T.E in the previous games was very annoying. It's like flipping a coin and trying to flip the coin in your favour 5 times in a row. I miss playing Skate 2 though. Had Skate 1 and 2 on Xbox 360 but it got the RROD. That happened to another 2 consoles and I switched to PS3 and got Skate 3 with it. Although Skate 3 is definitely an improvement over the first 2 games, I don't feel like Skate 3 has the atmosphere and amazing spots that the first 2 games had.

    The Miracle Whip branding is also why they snuck in a trick name that doesn't exist. The Superdude (probably not the real life name of the trick) in Skate 3 is when you grab with both hands and press B, which makes your character lift the board above them. If you do either a front flip or a back flip while doing a Superdude grab, the game will call it a miracle whip. I don't think that trick has ever/will ever be done, and I don't think that would be the name of it either.

    I don't know why people hate the death races so much its kinda easy especially in skate 3 because In skate 3 death races you can just bullshit your way to the finish line you don't have to hit any gates except for the last one. For example the death race that you showed in this video once you get to the road you can just skitch a car to the finish line. In skate 2 its kinda harder but you can bullshit your way to the finish but the way the death races work in that game is that you have a 60 second timer and you need to hit the gates to add to the timer and you don't have to hit EVERY gate but you need to keep hitting enough gates so your timer doesn't run out

    10:47 it's not RNG you said it yourself, there is a tradeoff based on how well you perform, i bet the made it like this,if it was reversed, like the AI plays better when you play better, online playing would be a doozy,and nobody would wanna play it online, my 2 cents.

    like xbox rereleased T.H.P.S. 2x which was one and two together and on the newer platform with much better graphics they NEED to do this with the 3 skate games they should honestly let gamers know when they are releasing it and having a twitter poll and not one of the E.A.sports website because no one will actually go twitter and facebook and instagram automatically put t out to billions of phones and, tablets desktops laptops, and smart t.v.s not to mention at least I know teslas have wifi and twitter right on the dash when the car is stopped or someone is in the passenger seat or maybe not even since it drives itself… crazy… all of this innovation and E.A. can't make another game since from what I have heard the last T.H.P.S. was terrible and a major step back from project 8 or underground [My personal favorite is underground then project 8 then provng grounds then with 3 2 even four& the formentioned 2x] i don't even have an order but that 4 i thnk might be the [Last] but underground wins and then project 8 then proving grounds 2x&3 tied then 4 and then wasteland and underground two were pretty awfulmuch the worst thought it could get so since then 've only played the ones I am recomended.. and I did try rde it was an abomination however underground was the funnest thing to play and wasteland was just lke T.H.U.G.2 which was pretty much lets use bam not as a skater but a jackass member and have you do the jackass stunts in the game with no incentive to ollie big gaps or do a tre flip or at the very least a kick flip down some stairs or grind big handrails… im rambling but my point s T.H.P.S. isnt even realsing anything if I'm not mistaken close to what they were doing so lets get on that E.A. before they oversaturate the market again with fake decks on the ground that don't mimc skateboarding in the least… sry had to get that off my chest… Loving you're videos B.T.W. RadRat keep it up brother

    First it's baffling why none of these games just let you Push Faster, especially in free skate.

    S1 has the skater looking most realistic (turning in S2/3 looks cartoonish). Great map. Session marker re-loading is painful, but even with it this is still my favorite. I even like the default camera angles.
    In S2 the city looks amazing, and markers load fast. The controls changed just enough that I'm noticeably worse in S2/3, but I had plowed tons of time into S1.
    The city in S3 just lost all sense of realism and, as another video covered well, the detail went way down from S2.

    Dang, I actually loved the Deathraces in this game xD I completed all of them in one sitting, haha. The only frustrating aspect was the spotty AI; sometimes your opponents would be really docile and you can easily get in first or become really aggressive and knock you off of your board as soon as you get in their proximity!

    When I first got skate 3 I used the farther away camera. Once I switched to close up camera I now despise the farther away camera.

    Skate 1 best city IMO
    Skate 2 best story
    Skate 3 best controls ( which in turn makes it the one I play the most)

    A) You do stick to rails you just need to adjust your board mid air for different grinds or or get a good runup
    B) The logging is because it’s supposed to be Vancouver
    C) Follow challenges are only for the first of some of the pro challenges
    D)There is default girls, you must have missed them
    E) The teammate scoring thing isn’t even worth complaining about the game is so easy if you’re good
    F) You look like a pedophile

    10: 30 I don't need teammates, I used to play this game so well I would always win those and then I would realize my teammate scored 147 points. Though I am comp on skate 3, well was, damn Xbox 360…i did Cannonball speed glitches, and backwards man along with 4 popping to destroy the shit out of everyone.

    13:32 I bought all the dlc, including time is money pack so that I can create WaCkY skate parks right away. I only bought this AFTER I accidentally sold my working hard drive instead of my broken one, I undid every thing, and shoved it on my kitchen table thinking that the one on the table works, the one on the counter dosnt. My friend picked it up for 3 bucks to fix it for himself, and then he called saying that there was stuff on it and he ended up accidentally reformating it all. This is when I bought the dlc.

    Skate 3 is by far my most favorite. And about the map; apart from 2 race routes and some routes that connect the areas together there is no downhill. And most of the world's areas are normally sized houses, pools, rails, etc. The mega ramps and such are far apart from the rest of the world with some being directly connected to one of the downhill routes (teleporting whichever area you want on the pauze menu map is also a thing). The rest is in maps that arent in the world itself (like the final score you have to beat at a mega park). I also can play with the low camera that much. Ones you are able to choose between the camera options there is no way back. Also, less finnicky physics and your character off board controls ok now so you can actually get around unlike 2.

    Hey Rad Rat Video, you're a little out of focus in your shot. Maybe take your camera out of auto focus (since there's a lot more surface area on your wall than on you) or maybe check to see if your camera has a setting for face recognition auto focus. Love your videos just thought I'd give you a friendly pointer

    It's hard for me to make a proper judgment because I only played Skate 1 and 3. With that said, I say Skate 3 is the best. It has been resurrected on the Xbox One X with 4k graphics and the online was turned back on.

    Have you played OlliOlli and /or the sequel? If you have, obviously I'd appreciate your take on … probably anything, but definitely one or both if you've played. If you haven't, I think you'd like the game mechanics. Also, it feels oddly "real" despite its 2D 8-bit pixel-y aesthetic.
