The easiest way to beat it is to SKATE. No codes in this game, beat it like everyone else. I can't wait till I beat it.

LOL @ Codes.

Why buy the game to only skate one ramp?

I am sponsored by Baker, but I wish I would have known you couldn't change sponsors, I probably would have went with a different one.

Baker
Spitfire [:'(] (brother picked it)
Venture (picked wrong ones but I like them
and Supra

It's kinda wack how you can't change sponsors and so are the "missions." Not exactly realistic in my book.

Is there a secret to finding events. I find myself just skating around a lot trying to find something to hit the Y button on.

Is the mega ramp unlocked on live? I havent done live yet either.
Thanks

There is a map, press "Back" and you have a screen of things to choose from. The map, trick book, clothing, board, accecories, and more are things you can choose from. Enjoy!

Anytime.

Does anyone have trouble with advanced flip tricks? I don't even know how to do a varial, 360 flip, etc. Who has these memorized or can perform them at will? Even after looking in the trick book I'd be lucky to land something like a nollie laser flip.

I can do 360 flips, hard flips, lazer flips and more. I might sell it today since I don't play it anymore.

I agree. I wish I could have known you could change sponsors.

I have......

Baker
Spitfire
Venture
Lakai

When I get my own Xbox I will start a new game though and will go with

Enjoi
Spitfire/Hubba/Autobahn?
Venture
Lakai

And I agree the harder flip tricks are sort of hard. The imputs are practically the same. For example the 360 Pop Shuv It is almost the exact same as the 360 hardflip, just slightly lesser stick movement; if that makes any sense. I can do the 360 hardflip at will almost, lazer flip is hard for me though. Some of the grinds are tricky too.

Grinds are ok for me. I suck at the flip tricks. I hate pumping in bowls and stuff too.

Skate 2 will be much better. I hear darkslides will be possible and you can get off your board.
Other things I would like to see:
Less pedestrians
Somehow make the tricks a bit easier/ to remember
Switch sponsors
Breaking of boards, free replacements
More realistic career: I don't know many kids who get sponsored in one day and can do a late back foot heel in one day. I would like to see the skater get better as he progresses through the career. Maybe a house as you get more famous with a "skate park" in the back something like Dyrdek. More hair styles, they don't have the kind of hair most african-americans have. Some people call it a Caesar.
More Nike SB's!
Different ways to put fitted hats on.
Change in voices (I sound NOTHING like my character)
A customization engine when you get your own board so you can design it
Different grip tape selections
Anymore?

A new flip trick engine that lets you control each foot using your thumbs. But make it optional so the game will still be easy. Kickflips would be a feat with that and forget tre flips. Oh and a better grind system, and more kinds or grabs, like: airwalks, one foot tailgrabs, rocket airs, and more. Make your own park!!!!

We think so much alike.

Getting off the board is a much needed feature. It gets real annoying trying to flip up staircases, and since the foot braking is awful walking would be nice.
I agree you should not only break boards, but I think you should wear out shoes as well. I don't think they should be free though, I think they should cost money. When you think about it, when you start you are low on money, but after just a few events you now have nothing else to buy, except clothes; but how much clothes do you need? I have 2 or 3 outfits I actually switch between. I skate alot more then play dress up, I don't switch wardrboes between every filming.

YES for progression. I think it should be just like a real skating experience, the game should not start with the bus, it should start with you walking in a skateshop with some cash. You buy the bare essentials and just like a real skater, you struggle even with ollieing at first. This may irritate some people, but for realism I like the idea of how the more you skate the higher your ollie becomes, the more consistant you become at tricks, etc.

I couldn't believe there way only four SB's to choose from... show me the Dunks!!
Even though I roll with Lakai because they have the nicest lookest shoes in the game to me, as well as Adidas.

YES the hats need more style options. The character wears his hat horribly and it just looks odd.

Perhaps expand skateboard to buy different griptape, bearings, etc.
Buying better bearings makes you coast longer. In the beginning you have enough for bare essentials so you can't coast too long!

I would like to see LESS money. Just like Grand THeft Auto I find it useless to have a bunch of money just for kicks. Give me more stuff to buy, or don't pay so well. I hate having $13,000 in my account.

Also I would like to see it be harder to get sponsored, and unlock new things. Character unlocks are rediculously easy, and all it takes to get sponsored with baker is to grind a rail!?!?

Come on...

Shoes should tear and soles wear out from foot braking, so you must purchase new ones.

More...........

Make S.k.a.t.e. harder. I want to do grabs and grinds.

Two player freeride PLEASE. Two player is horrible. Skate is boring because of the limited tricks, and spot claim is boring because there is only 5 spots to skate, and because you get ten seconds there is no variety whatsoever.



Hand plants....

You need to not be able to push while going up vert ramps, unrealistic.

World Tour? When you go pro skate across more than one city.

Crowds at Jams.

Easier Goals. 4500 points, 3 grabs, 8 seconds of air, 45 feet grind in 30 seconds.... come on!
More realistic goals.

I hate filming the objectives are just rediculous. Photoshoots are fun though!

Wear and tear is nice.

I'd like to have to start with a Mongoose board or something, just like when we were 7 or 8.
I wear my hat the same way, I gotta get my New York on!
I have almost $30K in my account, I don't mind that much, skaters do get paid somewhat well.
Sponsors are very easy, I've done almost all of them except the 360 Flip to grind or whatever to get Plan B.
S.K.A.T.E. is hard enough for me, I can't even beat Carrol.
I've never played two-player.
Don't vert skaters pump in real life?
The films are oh so dumb. Remain in a no-skate zone, 4000pts, 60ft grind in 30 seconds? It would be ok if they gave you like 10s of air and 4000pts, thats easy at the Plan B park. I hate how they give you vert/park goals along with street goals. Where are you going to do a 60ft grind in a park?!
