Street Skate is an outstanding 3D skateboarding game that one can naturally say continues just from the place Street Sesh ended. The game is actually know as Street Sesh 3 among online gamers community even though officially it has nothing to do with the original title released by “etnies.”
Street Skate was developed by “robotink team” and we have to admit the fact that did a very good job when it comes to making the game look and behave somehow identically to Street Sesh. Just a quick look over the graphics, used colors, main character look, skateboard stunts action and the general background details and you are already inside Street Sesh world, so I think I’m allowed to say that this game was intentionally build as a satellite and it was already qualified to success by spotting a huge gate left entirely open by the it’s predecessor that did not followed and official sequel.
It was the online gaming websites publishers that named the game as Street Sesh 3 actually and they did this on purpose in order to also get their share of success by driving lot’s of traffic back to their portals as gamers all over the internet were searching for this keyword in the hope of an new episode of Street Sesh becoming available.
In the end everybody was happy, “robotink” team had created a successful game, the publishers got their needed visitors and the general public was the happiest as it received another great skateboard game to enjoy .
Now let’s just talk a bit about the actual game itself. As I was referring earlier the game attracts the eye sight by very nice looking 3D graphics, the main character has also been shaped with great attention for details and the skate tricks performing list is indeed complete. The performed action skating tricks looks really nice to the player as the animation frames do offer a video watch like experience.
The action takes place on the American Bay City streets were you need to guide your rider among rush hour traffic and all sort of other obstacles while performing numerous stunts in order to increase your score. Beside the fact that the game tries to offer a realistic experience from a skateboarder point of view by having secondary role play characters such as humans walking on the streets sideways, cars running and stopping at the traffic lights, lots of buildings, a park area with stairs railings that can be used to glide and narrow streets with parked cars, it also brings some fantastic action into play.
This relates to riding and jumping from one truck roof to another over longer distance then one could do in a real situation not to talk about the great number of ramps available all over the narrow streets and also to the fact that your character will always be able to recover after each fall or after crashing with a moving car and such. Yet this kind of behavior makes the rider a super hero and adds points to the game popularity.
Finally after riding among the streets performing your stunts and exercising new moves you will inevitably come to the downside park area that marks the finish of your course. The game complete screen will pop up and your total score will be displayed, giving you the option to start all over again and enjoy a new ride, hoping to score even better.
The skateboard tricks list one can perform inside the game is complete and allows you to execute the following: Olie, Pop Shovit, Kick flip, 360 Flip, nose slide, tail slide, 50-50 slide, grinding and blunt.
Here is an important note that players should be aware off:
Street Sesh 3 was build using the Adobe Shockwave SDK so in order to play it you need to install both Adobe Shockwave player plugin as well as Adobe Shockwave Director plugin and activate them in your browser such as Firefox or Chrome etc. Recent upgrades to these internet browsers deactivated the Adobe Shockwave plugin by default so one needs to set these addon plugins to be allowed to run other wise the game won’t run and player will receive an error like Street Sesh 3 not working or loading and will start asking how to unlock the game to make it run.
