    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. Your last task is to win an event you created for the skatepark you made for the city. The customization of the original isSkate 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. Your last task is to win an event you created for the skatepark you made for the city. The customization of the original is also back, which is great. The best thing here is the controls which are flawless. Allowing for crazy stuff to happen that seems believable at times. Its amazing. This alone trumps any issues with the story. The open world also has a police/guard mechanic that means you'll be able to be chased and have fights. This is all possible due to Skate 2's ability for you to separate your self from the board. Truly revolutionary. I just wish there were guns. Expand

    Better than skate 1, with some very fun gameplay mechanics like the hall of meat and just controlling the skateboard. The missions however are very frustrating and is basically trial and error

    Skate 2 is a small step down from the first Skate. The steering is an issue, as is the controls. I cover most of this in my Skate 3 review, read that instead.

  1. Black Box’s sequel ultimately struggles to offer any single compelling justification for its own existence. [Feb 2009, p.93]
  2. Skate 2 is sport entertainment as good as the first one, and in many aspects even better. Great graphics, awesome campaign mode and an interesting multiplayer are among its highlights. We were intrigued about how the franchise would evolve after its overwhelming first entry, and the final result has not disappointed us.
  3. A brilliant game. For the most part it takes the brilliant template laid down in the original and injects it with a smartly integrated new move-set, an exciting world to rip to shreds, and the same addictive, unquestionably stylish gameplay which saw the Tony Hawk series bolt for the hills.
