Skate 3 is an old game but a great game, originally released in May 2010. A modern gamer may find Skate 3 difficult to play since it was released more than a decade ago on a non-supported system and was never ported or remastered for the current generation of consoles.
Despite being released over a decade ago, there are still ways to play Skate 3 . one way is to look for a physical copy of the game at your local game resale store, located in the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 sections. A copy of Skate 3 on the Xbox 360 can be played on either the Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S consoles with no issues, while a copy of the game for PlayStation 3 can only be played on PlayStation 4 consoles.
Remember To Manual
Manuals are a big part of gaining a high combo in most skating games and Skate 3 is no different. It is extremely difficult to pull off a gigantic combo in Skate 3 without manuals. Performing one flip to the ground and then another off of a different ramp cannot be combined without a manual between them.
It is not possible to add points if they aren’t done consecutively. Incorporate a manual into the rotation by pulling the right analog stick back very slightly, but not so much that it triggers an Ollie. you must balance until you are ready to perform the next trick.
Explore And Find The Best Skate 3 Spots For Lines
Although there is a story mode it is best not to follow it for too long. There is so much to discover in the world with areas that could see you content for hours just setting up the perfect trick. So it isn’t worth it to speed your way through the main campaign. The world map also features several special activities that pop up, such as contests. It is worth trying to find these little features for the rewards alone.
One of the most entertaining things to do in Skate 3 is to try and pull off the perfect combo. These are lines of tricks strung together in one specific spot that has the perfect set of obstacles and features to improve the point total, as you transfer from obstacle to obstacle by performing multiple tricks.
Check Out The Skate 3 In-Game Trick Tutorial
Skate 3’s Trick Guide is the most effective tool for learning difficult manoeuvres. The paused trick menu contains this option that displays a looping full-motion video recap of the selected trick in a simple stage and illustrates how to accomplish the trick in a more visual manner rather than simply describing it in text.
Each Skate game comes with a video Trick Guide that will show new players where they are going wrong. If you compare your thumbstick flicks and board movements with the full-motion video, you’ll find that you can master the most complex tricks in no time. Also included is a Trick Guide with all kinds of tricks, from Ollies to near-impossible flips and everything in between.
Become Familiar With Skate 3’s Controls
Some famous skating games, such as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, simply ask players to point their movement stick in a particular direction and press a related button; for example, pressing X to flip or Y to grab. However, in Skate 3, you must move the thumbstick carefully and precisely to achieve this.
Just about every trick in the Skate series is accomplished with the right analog stick of the controller, except for turning in the air. It is essential to get comfortable with using the analog stick inputs for most of the game, from performing a simple Ollie to pulling off the more challenging Front Flip.
Check Your Set Up
In Skate 3, you can customize things like the tightness of the board’s trucks and the hardness of the wheels. Harder wheels make straights faster and smoother, while tighter trucks will make turning harder but landing easier which is very realistic.
Looser trucks make manoeuvring easier, but they reduce landings; meanwhile, less hard wheels make things softer. Experiment to determine what works best for you.
