Are people really that handicap that they cannot play this game? i dunno. but this game is great the storyline is like most skateboarding games. get sponsored and make money and get famous. it has a nice free roaming city. the camera angle is like an actual skate video. the controls can get hard when you're trying to do the more advanced tricks, but they're more enjoyable than smashing buttons in my opinion. the wipeouts are cool, but they can get annoying because some of the falls are pointless, like if you jump on your board quickly and you fall if you dont have room to land on it the fall is kinda lame. the challenge is pretty good. some of the missions have little glitches that are mostly minor. if not there are ways around them. online mode can be fun. people cheat in the ranked matches but freeskate with friends is fun. races actually weren't that bad. usually racing in skateboarding games isn't that fun but i enjoyed them. sound in the game is fine also. overall this is a very good skateboarding game.
This game is a must buy. sure its flawed but is there another skateboarding video with better graphics and more realistic? doubtfully. This game will provide a whole lot of fun for a good amount of time for some of the challenges are frustrating tho the feeling you get when you finally complete it is worth it. The game has some features that don't make a lot of sense tho they are fun like "Hall of Meat" challenges. The bails could use some tweaking but its the actual skateboarding that counts. and the skateboarding does NOT disappoint with twice as many tricks as the first game. The setting of the game is the city of San Vanellona which is some sort of skateboarding paradise with the exception of pestering security guards. And the skateboarding could use some style according to the skater. I find it a little bothering that all the skaters skate the same. Over all this is a great game that has some minor details that don't affect game play too much. The game is still growing and Skate 3 wasn't much of an improvement. If you want to start playing skate 2 and have never played a skate game before buy skate 2 if you have skate 1 you could consider buying skate 2 but if you have 2, urge you to NOT buy skate 3 and just wait till 4 comes out and hope its much better
Leave alone your THPS games, pick up Skate 2 now!
Why would you stay at home playing unrealistic skateboarding games, ollieing 8999 ft in the air? When you can play Skate 2, explore the city of New San Van and FILM your lines? Why would you want to press X + Square + DPAD Right to do a kicklip, instead get used to the new flickit system. For the first time ever, use the right analog stick to perform a more likely realistic flat land tricks. Forget your old THPS games of unrealistic flip tricks in mid air up to 90289 times, get used to realism because you will love it. I had this game since I got my PS3 and I still have it.
In my opinion i think this game is really great and just another game similar to tony hawk games. If you play tony hawk the only thing that might disappoint you in this game is the controls. I like the controls but they are hard to get used to. The graphics are really good, the game is challenging, has good music, and the camera mode is also fun. They actually allow you to get off your board and move objects around so you have a chance to get creative. I recommend this to anyone who likes to skate board or just play skate borading games.It includes a lot of tricks. Learning how to do them is fun, using the control stick in a variety of ways. There are also some parts you might remember from the first game if you layed it. I also liked customizing my board and characters clothes. Overall i give this game a 9.
I like this game. not just because i like Rob Dyrdek and Big Black. i like Danny Way and Jake Brown and other pros to. Compared to COD4 theese graphics are ok. compared to Tony Hawk Ride the graphics are amazing. Controls are hard to get used to trying to do a 360 flip as opposed to a Variel kickflip. same movement of the control stick but you can get it right if you figure it all out. hard challenges and easy challenges. i like the story line and the clothes and boards to choose from. I personally am signed with Plan B on here but i do love Rob Dyrdek I'm just not a fan of Jason Dill. Alot of skateparks and mega ramps to choose from. Multiplayer is fun you can play games of skate, have spot battles and see who can bail the hardest. there is NOT a multiplayer freeskate unless your online. online is fun too i like playing with other people and playing chalenges. if you like the show Rob Dyrdeks Fantasy Factory you can buy the factory online for about 5 bucks. its similar to the factory but as well quite different. overall i like this game alot!
I love this game. I like how there are tons of side missions and how they affiliate with the main mission. I also like how you dont need do to the missions when you dont want to; you can just skate around the city. It is very fun if you like skating (or not). Lastly, I like how you get to customize your character and your board. Thx for reading!
This is a really good game. It has all the real things in skateboarding as your goals like getting sponsored contests races owning spots and keeping it realistic at the same time. One of the best things of this game is that there is so much to skate because San Vanelona is about the size of city. But it is also a city that is better for skateboarding than anything else There are very few problems with this game but those problems really bug you. One is that the camera angle is from a skate-filmers view and sometimes he gets up to close with you in the middle of the screen and you can run into a car. The other is that you can get stuck easily in bad times like in the middle of a race. There aren't any tricks that they left out so it might be hard to make a skate 3 so i recommend this to anyone who is addicted to skateboarding or wants a fun game that is isn't a shoot em up.
BEST GAME EVER
i love this game its my fav game its better than the tony hawk games wayyyyyyy better no other skate games can beat skate hope they make a 4 dudes if ya love skatboarding like me get it its a must get
Could be longer
Skate 2 is a game where you play the role of a skater who just got out of prison, and then goes back to skating.This game is an easy platinum and is fun.
The Perfect Skating Game
I give Skate 2 a 10 out of 10. It is the best skateboarding game I've ever played. This is pretty surprising, since it's only EA's third skate game. I; play this game about 2 hours everyday (keep in mind I just got it) and it never gets boring. The career mode is really long but usually games like that get repetitive, but Skate 2 doesn't. Each level is completly different and they get better as they are unlocked. Plus there is more to do, like customize the area you are skating, customize the graphics, make videos of achieved moments or painful wipeouts, and this cool feature called Hall of Meat where you can do wipeouts on purpose to punish your skater in ways that only Skate 2 can allow. Plus the game uses physics to allow surprisingly realistic movements and reactions to the harsh bailouts. All the more addicting is online play where you can show people from all over the planet your moves. Playing online is probably the game's best feature, since it keeps you hooked the longest. I never was a huge fan of skateboarding, but I have to admit, this game is really great. It is definately a must-have for big skate fans.
