So, I finished up the single-player part of Skate 3 over the weekend, I only have four spots left to find. Overall I thought it was a good experience, the goals felt more in line with regular skating for the most part. Hardcore mode makes everything a lot harder as well, at first I had my mind set on completing every challenge on HC, but that thought didn't last long.
The tutorial seemed like it was really good, I can't say too much about it since I've been playing both of the earlier entries in this series for quite some time. No Coach Frank outside the tutorial though, would've liked to see that. Haven't touched the multi-player yet, or the skate.Create features, I'll get around to that later.

I might get around to writing a proper review at some point, we'll see. I definitely think it is a good sequel, even though it doesn't add much the quality is still as high and it introduces a couple of new things that makes it feel a little more justified.
