So, to see a small studio like Easy Day Studios create something that is not only reminiscent of the games that clearly influenced them, but overall improves on what its predecessors did, is heartening. Sure, it has its fair share of flaws, but none of them take away from how much fun I’ve had. Skater XL has successfully brought back the skateboarding genre, and I am eager to see how Easy Day Studios supports the game moving forward.
If you’re really missing the Skate franchise, I do recommend checking out Skater XL. With the possibility of more community created levels and hopefully some of the more glaring bugs getting patched out, hardcore fans will have tons of fun with the creativity and flexibility Skater XL offers. You’ll just likely be frustrated frequently with some of the issues in between those moments of creativity.
Just like learning to skateboard in real life, it’s going to take a lot of time and patience to really get the game down. I nearly walked away from the game when it was in early release, but I am so glad that I did not. It’s now one of the games I turn on daily, even if only for 15 minutes, just to practice my tricks.
