The Good True Skate is an excellent skateboarding sim with realistic physics, great graphics and sound, and hours of fun gameplay as you try to master your tricks.

The Bad The game only comes with one skate park. Lack of a replay system means you need to use the rewind button to watch your trick backward. Creating a session requires going deep into the options menus.

The Bottom Line If you like skateboarding, True Skate has excellent controls and beautiful 3D graphics, and it offers hours of entertainment as you try to land the perfect trick.

Don't Miss

True Skate is a skateboarding simulator with excellent gameplay, letting you use precise touch-screen controls to pull off complex tricks as you explore a 3D skate park.

The 3D graphics are a sight to behold with realistic-looking obstacles, multiple light sources, and natural-looking shadows -- all with high frame rates. The sounds are great as well, with sounds for every kick to go faster across the pavement and the tell-tale high-pitched grinding noise as you slide down a metal rail.
