Summary: I'm not a skateboarder and I never was but this game made me want to try. It has great graphics and it all looks so real. The characters are all famous skateboarders so they add more realism to the game. The missions they send you on are fun for a little but can get pretty boring.
Summary: Skate 2 improves on all of the great controls of the original. Unfortunately is worse in terms of story and open world. Both lack the depth of the original. While the original had a satisfying conclusion of winning the XGAMES this one doesn't have anything as fun.
Summary: Repetitive, Frustrating, Trial and Error. If you like skating, then its the game for you, but for those who have no interest of the sport, give it a rent. 7.1/10. Graphics are alright, skate back in '06 was great, while skate 2 feels almost identical.
Summary: I grew up on the Tony Hawk series for n64 and ps2. Though I like to think I can adapt to controls and gameplay quickly, it is kinda hard for me to do in Skate 2. I feel it is more difficult to complete air grabs in half pipes, etc and extremely easy to do flip tricks and grinding.

Summary: Recently Skate boarding games,The Tony Hawk's series mainly have had, well, uninteresting, watered down, boring story lines and stale game play. Tony Hawk's Proving Ground and Ride are two good examples of games worth about 5 minutes of fun..
Summary: Skate 2, i played the demo on ps3 and loved it. The game felt so right to me that i had to pick the full thing up. There were no surprises, the demo was exactly like the game. skate 2 is a great game overall, its a great new experience and more of a SIM compared to what the tony hawks series is.
