Skater XL Review – Buy, budget bin or demolition?


Think about this! The last major skate game was released in 2010. 2010 !!! Are you one of those skaters who has been waiting for a new skate game all these years? Then you probably couldn’t get lucky last year when multiple titles were announced! Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 & 2, Skate 4, Sessions and Skater XL. The game we’re going to talk about in this video. Emiel and JJ are a lot of virtual bot fractures further, but they are ready at the desk to tell you all about this new skate game!

Emiel is a skater in heart and soul

Emiel has been on a skateboard since his youth. But in the busy life of a game developer and teacher it is difficult to test all kinds of famous skate spots. Fortunately, there is Skater XL. The game offers a map with more than sixty real life skate spots in California, including the famous staircase Lyon 25! California is the Walhalla for many skaters. All locations are connected by streets, parking garages, swimming pools and many more places where you can slide the asphalt under your board. You can do this with skate icons like Tiago Lemos, Evan Smith, Tom Asta or Brandon Westgate.

What exactly makes Skater XL unique?

In principle you would think that all skate games are a bit the same. A trick here and a trick there. Yet Easy Day Studios has tried to give Skater XL its own look and feel. You have complete control over what your character’s feet do. By controlling the controller sticks separately, no trick should look the same! And the makers are especially proud of this feature! But is that also justified? JJ is going to ask the expert Emiel all.
