Skate 2 Video Game Review

The Game Reviews
4 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Imagine you are eating dinner with a friend at a nice restaurant. The steak was a little overdone, but otherwise it was a very enjoyable meal. Out of convenience, you put the meal on your card and ask your friend to pay you his share with cash.

SKATE 2 Review

VideoGamer.com
29 August 2009
  • Excerpt: If you're the development studio responsible for taking the skateboarding genre to new heights, single-handedly stopping the rot that set in after years of the identikit Tony Hawk games, you deserve a lot of recognition and a bit of a break. This is the video game industry though, where what we have is never enough. People are rarely content with a good thing; they're already looking at what could make it even better and chomping at the bit to get their hands on it.

Skate 2

Playstation Illustrated
22 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The camera swoops over the entire market square and you see a line of tricks that would definitely put you in the top spot of the competition. You approach the first gap and reach deep into your bag of tricks and pull out a 360 Laser Flip off the stairs into a feeble grind down the hubba rail. It is exhilarating. The accomplished feeling of nailing it on the first try rushes over you in an instant.

Skate 2

Strategy Informer
21 August 2009
  • Conclusion: However, all this doesn’t take away from the generally simple and intuitive controls, only from the larger game. New online interaction through completing goals, uploading and editing videos, and making custom designs for skateboards are great additions to the franchise, and most importantly, Skate 2 is fun to play, even if the career does lose its appeal later on. Because the great city of San Vanelona never does.

Test Skate 2

Generation NT
11 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Skate 2 fait donc aussi bien que son prédécesseur, si ce n'est mieux dans le sens où les développeurs ont ajouté quelques détails supplémentaires qui manquaient justement au premier. Le titre n'est pas exempt de défaut, mais le plaisir qu'il procure arrive à nous les faire oublier. Liberté d'action et de mouvement, fluidité dans les figures, prise en mains exigeantes mais néanmoins plaisantes, Skate 2 nous procure un très beau moment de jeu, que l'on soit d'ailleurs...
  • Pros: Un gameplay accessible mais exigeant, Gamme de figures plus étoffée, Beauté de San Van
  • Cons: La marche à pied, Nouveautés discrètes

Skate 2 (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Skate 2 is a wonderful example of a videogame doing justice to an alternative culture, in this case, the underground-gone-mainstream world of skating – you know you’re in for a cultural treat when the introduction and ensuing gameplay features a veritable who’s who of pro skating legends, both in live action and digital 3D form.

Saving Progress
8 May 2009
  • Conclusion: I went through that pretty quickly. That’s because none of it matters. The small pitfalls and the tiny steps forward do little to hide that skate 2 is simply real skateboarding done justice in a video game – but that’s all it is. If you ever loved real skateboarding, you’ll love skate 2 ; if you didn’t, you’ll find the annoyances a little too much to bear.

Skate 2

Auracore MediaWorks
31 March 2009
  • Summary: A near perfect balance between true skating and arcade fun.
  • Pros: More speed driven goals; hall-of-meat challenges; vast amount of replay value with online ranks and co-op missions; tri-pod cameras in replay editor; hippy jumps; no ridiculous additions like natas spins or an "assume the position" special move.
  • Cons: Soundtrack large, but dated and overly obscure; bail glitches for hall-of-meat online; odd loading times online; insanely difficult goals such as games of "skate" and hand-planting a basketball net; less effects in replay editor.

Skate 2

Defunct Games
10 February 2009
  • Summary: Skate 2 isn't the innovative sequel that some people had been hoping for, but that doesn't mean it's not fun. With plenty of new areas to explore, some cool new challenges and a bunch of much-needed fixes, Skate 2 is a fantastic follow-up to an already stellar skateboarding game. Casual gamers may find the game's learning curve too much for them, but hardcore fans will eat this game up! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
