Today I will review one of my favorite online skateboarding games called “Street Sesh” and I think it’s kind of obvious that you should already know what I’m talking about here, as this is one of the greatest titles in this industry.
I think the creators of this game did a great job when they decided to named it “Street Sesh” as this is a short, brandable and easy to memorize title. This also make me think that developers somehow anticipated the upcoming success as when the game was released back a few years ago it was state of the art and did not have big competition in it’s section, being among the first high quality 3D sport games available for free online.
The company behind this great game it’s called “etnies” and they run a business in the apparels for extreme sport enthusiasts such as skateboarders, BMX riders, surfers, snowboards. Don’t know if they ordered this game deliberately or just sponsored it when they saw a chance for promoting their brand, yet Street Sesh became so popular online ,so fast that it gathered millions of fans world wide.
As you start the game you find yourself in a city, somewhere on a high asphalt platform where you have the opportunity to test some of the basic skateboard tricks such as: ollie, kickflip, 360flip, tailslide etc.
Now it’s a good time for you to learn how to master your deck as there won’t be to many obstacles in front of you here, so take your time and have fun learning the basic moves and practicing your skills before jumping over stairs, or riding among vehicles and using the special built ramps that will take you high in the air to perform even more extreme stunts.So the training period it’s over let’s roll on the streets and begin to gather points. First obstacle is a long row of stairs over you need to jump. You can approach this challenge very easy with an “ollie“ trick, but once you find yourself in the air keep a steady balance and choose a good place to make your landing as if you land on stairs this will cause an injury for your character and we don’t want this to happen.
When riding the streets among vehicles don’t rush to fast as you need to avoid hitting any obstacles in your way. Here you will find lot’s of ramps to help you jump over vehicles and perform crazy tricks, such as sliding over buses and cars roofs.
Keep in mind that you can use almost anything that comes in front of you, as an obstacle to jump or slide over so that you gather as much points as you can before reaching the finish, so go for it. Also look for the bonus yellow boxes that will award you 10.000 points each if you manage to collect them.
The game ends when you reach the second floor at the subway station and you are welcomed to introduce your name in the hall of fame of the greatest riders.
Now you understand that the main purpose of the game is for one to try and score as high as possible in order to have his name on top of the riders list.
