Having played skateboarding games since the days of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, I was curious to see how a new take on the genre would fare. Skate 2 is the second in the Skate series on next-gen consoles and has, quite simply, reinvented the formula of skateboarding console games. Gone are the button bashing combos of the past and, in its place, is a refreshing and flexible control system which makes the game a blast to play. Presentation The menus are rather basic, featuring clear enough, but unimpressive lists of game modes. A nice touch is the skateboarding scene in the background, which gives you a feel of the game almost immediately. ... Read the complete review

Skate 2 is the sequel to EA's entry in to the skating game market. For some time before this, that market has been dominated by Tony Hawk games. No longer, screams EA! With the introduction of a much more sandbox style skating game EA have made a game which provides a much more immersive experience than the Tony Hawks series. I've only played Skate 2 (I've yet to play Skate) and I have to say it's much better than the tony hawks games, mainly because of its sandbox styling. It's up to you to do what you want. Wanna own a spot? Just skate over to one. Wanna jump off a cliff to see how many bones you can break and spleans you can rupture? Go for it. It's ... Read the complete review

Skate 2 is a continuation from the original Skate, adding new Tricks, new challenges and new gameplay features, such as the ability to get off your board and to move around in-game objects and scenery to create Skate spots and session areas, as you might do in real life! Skate 2 takes the original control system of the original Skate and doesnt mess around with it; instead they've added tricks and abilities without compromising on the "authentic" control scheme, which still works very well. The game world appears to be huge and there are many areas for the player to get access to. The more you play and explore the world, the more you'll see and ... Read the complete review

Skate 2 is the sequel to the First game Skate, however it is much improved and some say much better however I believe them to be very similar. Skate 2 doesn't seem as special as the first however it is still very good and fun to play. The story mode is quite long, can get repetitive and start to seem boring, however I think this game reaches its full potential through the On-line Game Modes. I found it to be great fun to play with friends over the internet. The Online Skate option for me was my favourite feature as playing with friends and having competitions against them was great fun also you can get friends to help you complete challenges. Anyone ...
