Skate 2: Reviewed (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Ea and blackbox are at it again with the sequel to acclaimed 2007 release of Skate.  This evolution of the series is here to not only knock Tony Hawk’s series backwards more but totally out of the park. When Skate was released it heralded a completely new style of gameplay in the extreme sports genre and although felt totally weird at first became the game to beat due to its no-nonsense, natural style.

Skate 2 Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Who would have thought that EA would be the ones to redefine the skateboarding game? When Skate was released in 2007, they certainly did that and as an upstart, the game managed to sell more than Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground (an instalment in Activision‘s well established series), which was released in the same year. Skate 2 obviously doesn’t do any redefining, although fans of the first one should be happy with what’s new here.

Skate 2 Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Similarly, I had a task that required me to grind a dozen planters with at least five different grinds. I was also up against a timer that added pressure for me to get to each of the planters and make sure I had enough variety in my grinds to satisfy the objective. In what I saw as overkill, however, was the added requirement that I not wipe out at all during the run or I had to start all over again.

Skate 2 (Xbox 360) Review

411mania.com
10 July 2009
  • Summary: I’ve seen way too many possibly great sequels go down the drain whether it’s games, movies, or even music albums all because the creators want to mess with a formula that brought them their original success. I understand that they are trying to bring some diversity to their subjects, but, with the exceptions of the likes of Grand Theft Auto 3, Aliens, and David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust, most great formulas should only be tweaked and not overhauled.

Fun skateboarding game -- but brutal falls are rewarded.

Common Sense Media
9 July 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that the game is rated "Teen" for mild violence (graphic spills on skateboards), sexual comments including one toward's women ("I got to tie my shoes while I look up this girl's dress"), interaction which characters who talk about getting drunk, and includes some potentially offensive language. Song lyrics contain dialogue that can be risque (but no F-word).

SKATE 2 Review

VideoGamer.com
9 May 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.

  • Conclusion: This game might get hard at moments but just come back to it and then play it again. If you like skate games then get this one don't get skate 3 or original skate just buy this one its the best and people are also online at all times. This game also has replay feture which is also pretty cool to mess with.

Skate 2

Game Boyz
19 March 2009
  • Excerpt: When EA’s Skate arrived on the scene last year it breathed some much needed life into an otherwise stale genre. Activision’s Tony Hawk series has always been strong but it needed some stiff competition as many simply got tired of the same old same old. When the first Skate was released it not only provided the competition but it also outsold Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground by a 2 to 1 margin.
