I love skate. I'm not good at it, though I have recorded some of the sickest falls. I tried to ollie over an on-coming car, didn't ollie high enough, the car hit my guy's legs which caused him to do a triple front flip and then face planted on the windshield of another on-coming vehicle, the collision with the vehicle sent me flying a good 6 or 7 feet towards the sidewalk, landed face first on a curb...

Lets just say it's a good thing it was a video game because my guy got F*CKED up. Broken scull(obviously, all I did was face plant on an on-coming vehicle going about 40-50 mph and then face planted a curb), broken legs, broken ribs.

my favorite mishap was me running into an old lady and knocking her into the street. the instant she hit the ground, a car ran her over at full speed. man, that made me laught out loud.

My record is 14 broken bones on one crash. The thing showed up and the whole skeleton was red.

wow, haven't done anything that bad yet. i read that if you break every bone 3x, it unlocks a hidden skater.

I love this game as well. It is so realistic and as a person that used to skate (albeit very unsuccesfully) I really enjoy how lifelike it is. It is very challenging and awsome to play.

I am at the point where my guy is sponsered. Almost for boards and Gold trucks. I've recently been doing a bunch of the Por skater S.K.A.T.E missions and have beat about 3 or 4 of them. I am stuck right now though because I have a lot of trobles doing the harder tricks (i.e. 360 Flips and the such). The computer just constantly doing stuff like that and I always do the wrong trick. I have yet to land one 360 flip, and the only one I did end up doing I got hit by a car.

This game is certainly the best skating game though. I love going in either halfpipes or bowls and just fooling around in there. It is so much fun though.

I really want to get some of the harder flip tricks down though. I have a lot of troubles with them.

did your guy get sponsored by a truck company b4 wheels? i've just got boards and wheels, no trucks yet. i sucked at flip tricks until i had to do a mission for p-rod, some nollie 360 flip to grind on some ledge. it took me like 20 straight minutes to complete it but in the meantime i got good at doing the harder flip tricks.

also on the s.k.a.t.e. missions, i pretty much waited until the other guy bailed and then i would just repeat the same trick sets over and over until i won.

Did I say truck? I meant wheels, my bad. Yeah just noticed I said trucks, I meant wheels.

I just finished playing again, and I actually did pretty good at flip tricks. I beat one of the S.K.A.T.E missions and I did a variety of the harder flip tricks like 360 flips, hardflips and laser flips.

I am having so much troubles with the "Manny Madness" photo mission though. I am horrible at mannuling (sp?) and I have been stuck on this mission for like 2 days now. I just finished playing for like 20 minutes straight and I still couldn't do it. I absolutely hate mannuling and am horrible at it. This is one mission I am having tons of trouble with. Do you have any advice jbot? Have you done that one yet?

is this the mission where u ollie up to a trash dumpster, manual it, ollie to another and manual that one? if it is, it took me about 20 minutes to get it. i would just keep practicing ollie to manuals and make sure you put minimal pressure on the stick during manuals. sometimes i try to land my thumb on the very top edge of the right stick to manual.

Yeah I beat that mission about a day or two after I posted that.

I have beat the game now (beat it about a week ago). Technically I didn't beat the game as I didn't complete all the mission but I did the final missions.

I have to say that the hardest mission in the game, at least for me, was the 360 flip to FS Crooked on that bench while Big Black is walking around. I literally spent about 2-3 hours on that mission and still have not beat it. That one is so damn hard. I always seem to do one and not the other. When I do the 360 flip I do a nose grind and when I do the FS crooked, I always end up doing a 360 pop shuv it instead of a 360 flip. That is such a hard mission.

But yeah I still love this game and will still certainly play it. I will probably start a new career soon and do it all over again. It will be a while before I gets sick of this game.
