Skater Nation iPhone App Review

Skater Nation is the best skateboarding game I have played on the iPhone. It reminds me allot of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 (the first THPS game). This game has very good graphics for the iPhone and a surprisingly big map for a hand held device. The price is a bit steep but if you are a skateboarder or a fan of skateboarding games I think Skater Nation is well worth the cost.

Skater Nation characters
To start of you have 8 charecters to choose from (both male and female). You can either play the career mode, free ride or play online. You can also change your deck, wheels and trucks for better bonuses.

The music is also quite good for a iPhone game. While all of the songs and bands are un-heard of they have a good mix of rock and hiphop.

The trick list is actually very good. You can do Kickflips, 360 flips, 50.50s, crooked grinds, impossibles and much more! The grinding is probably the hardest to get used to, try letting go of the joystick and just hold down the B button to finish them. it’s basically trial and error.

Skater Nation gameplay
The controls are quite hard to get used to in the beginning but get much easier the more you play the game. Just remember than B + joy stick is for grabs and A + joystick is for flip tricks.

The story mode is actually very good. The main challenges consist of getting high scores (much like Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1, 2, 3/Underground 1 & 2) and performing certain tricks in a row (much like S.K.A.T.E 1 & S.K.A.T.E 2). The story mode is quite short but it’s certainly long enough for the price.

One of the coolest features about this game is that you can watch a replay of your gameplay at any time and even upload it directly to Youtube from inside the app!

This game is defiantly a must have for anyone who skates or anyone who just enjoys skateboarding games.

    I have this game on my iPod Touch. It’s really fun to play… Just a pity that I don’t have the full version… Only demo 🙁

  2. Jack Said,

    Haha cool. I also had the demo but bought the full game so I could write this review. The only real difference between the demo and the full game is the full version has a longer career. It’s not really worth the upgrade unless you like the career mode.

    Thanks for your comment.
