Best Alternatives to Skate 3

Best Alternatives to Skate 3

Skate 3 is an amazing game, but as time goes on, the game is getting older and older, and there are many games that can replace Skate 3 or be a great alternative to Skate 3.

There are many other games that fill the same niche as Skate 3, and we’re going to list some of the best alternatives to Skate 3.

Skate 2

The second installment in the Skate series, Skate 2 is a great alternative to Skate 3. The game has a very similar feel and is much more customized than the 3rd game. The career mode is a lot more in-depth and you can even create your own skate park. If you enjoy Skate 3 and want something similar but a bit different, Skate 2 is a great choice.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5

If you enjoyed the awesomeness of Skate 3 and crave more, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is a great alternative. The game itself is fun and the skating physics are great. The overall game is a bit boring and lacks the great, in-depth career mode and skate park creator of Skate 3. If you just want to skate around and do some tricks, THPS 5 is a great option.

The Simpsons Skateboarding

When EA announced The Simpsons Skateboarding, many fans were excited at the prospect of a skateboarding game starring everyone's favorite yellow-skinned TV family. Unfortunately, the game proved to be a huge disappointment, thanks to its lackluster controls, poor soundtrack, and lack of free skating. 

If you're looking for something that's similar to Skate 3, but not quite as good, you should try The Simpsons Skateboarding. You can play as any of the Simpson family members, skate through Springfield, pick up items, grind on rails, and perform tricks. The game even has a few of the same music artists as Skate 3, including Cypress Hill, Primus, and Alkaline Trio. It is available for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3.

Tony Hawk: SHRED

Tony Hawk: SHRED is a skateboarding video game developed by Robomodo and published by Activision. It is a spin-off of the Tony Hawk's series and was released on October 2, 2010, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, and Nintendo 3DS. 

SHRED was the first video game in the series to feature a snowboarding mode with a snowboard peripheral. In the game, players assume the role of a snowboarder who travels to various locations in the United States to compete in various snowboarding competitions.

True Skate

True Skate is a free skating game that was released in October 2012. It has a focus on realistic skating physics, with the developers working with professional skater Steve Caballero to ensure it is as realistic as possible.  

True Skate is only available on iOS and Android, but it has been recently receiving updates that have made it better and more realistic than ever. It is a great alternative that is cheaper and offers more features than its competition. 


Skate 3 is a great skateboarding game and it is the best skateboarding game of the series. It is not without its faults and there are better skateboarding games but if you really like the series as we do then Skate 3 is a good option and you can get it for a cheaper price now that it is no longer that popular.
