Rated 10 out of 10 by The Swedish Reject the best skate\ing game of all time
This is one of the best skating games ever. it is by far the most interactive games for any systems of all time. Its no tony hawk crap, no x to ollie, no square for flips. absolutly nothing like that. the joy or analog sticks are your feet and the triggers are your hands. you have the ability to move things around, and do every trick in the book. There is such a variety of places to go, there is no cut off. there is also a story mode, a trick battle mode, and a game where you get points for how bad you wreck ( sounds dumb but it is actually a really fun game ) the best part of skate two is being able to run from cops and go over obsticals. i like this the best because you can lead them towards the bench and hippy jump ( where you jump over and the board goes under then you land ) over it, and the police man or security gaurd goes by he flips over and gets hurt. once you get this game i suggest you do this, go to the stadium and once you go off the ramp hold forward, b, and the right trigger. its freaking amazing
Rated 10 out of 10 by x L e e c h Prolly one of the best skating games ever.
This was way better than the first skate. There is so much more you can do and it is amazing online. I recommend this game to anyone who likes skating or is looking for a new game to buy at the moment. Don't get this game if you hate using the thumbstick constantly because that is the main thing of the game. Like i said, This game is well worth buying and is probably one of the better games that has come out recently. If you were to choose between this and skate 1 get the 2nd one because there is so much more stuff you can do. There is also so many different customizable items you can put on your skater to which made the game really sweet. They also added the death races in this one which you can race downtown on you skateboarding at really fast speeds. The Hall of Meat was also fun. You can find yourself playing this game for hours just making yourself wreck and beat your old score. VERY FUN GAME WORTH BUYING!!!!

Skate 2 is the next installment in the EA series Skate. These games have clearly overpowered the Tony Hawk series, which is very unrealistic. You can do a combo that lasts over an hour very easily. You can even do a triple backflip off of a 2 story building. Skate 2 is a very realistic skateboarding game, and if you like skateboarding, you should purchase this product. The camera angle is very original, and i give EA props for thinking of this. The gameplay is amazing, you feel like you are actually doing it, unlike tony hawk's button mashing gameplay(which becomes very boring, very fast.) There are also a lot of up and coming pros, and many of them. The graphics are a lot better than all of the Tony Hawk games, and better that Skate 1, which was slightly staticky. In skate 2, the skating movements are very smooth and fluid. The challenge is decent, but it is very easy to win an online match, EA should put in a section of live for beginners, ok players, decent players, and people who certainly aren't new to the skate series. The sound track is also very catchy.

I got skate 2 right after it came out and i'm still amused playing it i have enjoyed the frist skate but it kinda got old quick so i wasn't disappointed when i bought it a few months before skate 2. skate 2 has awsome controls and i like the boneless to a judo footplant easy its awsome but the only game i can say that has came close to skate series in Tony Hawk Proving Grounds but i think any one that enjoys skateboarding game should get this i like the glithes for the color of the clothes and i like they got my favorite skateboard brand BLIND up there now i think the online is awsome on how you can get money for the game but it sucks because i've already bought every thing and still have $3,000,000 so that sucks but honetly i like where i can walk so if i dont set a session marker all i have to do is walk back there so yea i like the new handplants Thank You EA For the awsome series keep kickin' Mross

Well, I never played the first Skate game, but I saw the demo for download and got it. I pretty much download most demos just to get an idea for each game. This demo has convinced me to buy the game, the feel of the game was very realistic and I really enjoyed the graphics and smoothness of each move and trick. The walking was a bit glitchy when trying to make a sharp turn or whatever but the skating was perfect. Someone said it doesnt show what bones you broke, dude when the meat screen shows up it has an X-ray thingy that shows exactly which bones you have broken. Hilarious. I was very impressed with the game. Very few demos will prompt me to purchase a game but this has got me hook, line, and sinker. It kinda sucks cause Im goin camping and wont be able to play til sunday night, 2 days after. :( Oh and its ONLINE!!!, sweet, see you fellaz on there SHREDDIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MCII SKATE 2 is.....AMAZING
First off the only reason I gave this game an 9 as far as challenge goes is because I played the first skate so I'm pretty good with the difficult tricks. The new tricks take it all to a new level though and this game is even better than the first skate. Creating your own skater is alot more extensive this time around and gives you a ton of more options just with that feature alone. The spots in this game are great (so far) and even better since you can create you're own and make them how you want. If you have a crazy sick spot in your own town you can create one just like it in the game. Turning while walking is frustrating because we are all used to Gears of WAr type movment but it's a small hump to get over. The Demo version we all played has nothing on the actual full length game. If you're a skater or an action sports fan you better get this game or you're missing out!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by JNK3 the best skating game yet for now
Skate 2 was very fun i only rented it but it was awsome and worth the money i played every day till i had to take it back but i would surely buy it this game has lots of cool things in ti such as hippie jumps lip tricks and foot plants that were addedd to it. some of these things were not in the first skate but the most important difference is to be able to get of your board this gives players a real feel on the games features like making a line out some random objects you put together. This makes you feel like a real skater and if you are one im sure youll agree with me on this one by saying this is as close to skating as it gets except for the real thing. The controls are simple but not so simple that a caveman can do it (car insurance reference). If you played skate the controls should come naturally as if you were playing MW2, yeah im sure that got across to most of you. If you havent yet played the skate series its pretty easy to use to. Over all i give this game a 9 out of 10! This make.s me wanna buy it which i'll probably do this weekend. Remember skate on and keep creative. Sk8ters 4 life
Rated 10 out of 10 by underarmour71 awsome game!
this is a must have game. its way better than the first one. the graphics are awsome. this game is so realistic.u can get off ur board and move stuff around and the bails are sick .the challengs are kind of hard. and the create a skater is so cool. u should so buy this game if u your a hardcore skater. I dont even skate this game is just so fun and the game play is so smooth. its also fun to create a spot and u can also freeskate with ur fresinds online. u now get to do handplants and footplants. this is one of the best games ive played in a long while its is bout as a good as cod 4. i gurantee u will love this game.the spots on this game are sick threre is so many places u can skate at. and if u have online u should buy rob dydrdeks fantasy factory. u now have services on ur phone and u can call big black to take care of the security so u can skate but it costs money. and u can call if u want to skate in a pool tnant has water in it and they will drain it for u.and to uncappe a rail . i gurantee u will like this none of that tony hawk crap any more. just realistic skateboarding. THIS IS AN AWSOME GAME SO GO BUY IT.

I've been watching this game as soon as it was announced. I only played the demo for Skate 1, and I instantly fell in love with it. Ever since summer of 2008, I've been getting podcasts over iTunes, and I've loved everything in each of the videos. When the demo was released, I was blown away. It was a very realistic game/simulation, and everything was great about. Even though it's already a very challenging game, the camera view was very hard to deal with at first, which is why I gave the camera view a 6/10. Other than that, I recommend this game to anyone who is relatively creative, or to those who like to play something different than that kind of game where you shoot everyone in the face... Which was what I was before... Call of Duty, Gears of War, and Grand Theft Auto were the only titles I knew... I LOVE SKATE 2!
Rated 8 out of 10 by halo guy 101 SKATE 2 IS "OK"
i really like this game a lot..... i mean the challenge is fine the camera angle view does work for the selection also.. there is a lot of characters including ROD DYRDEK!!!!!!! also i like the fact that you have a teleporting map instead of skating everywhere unless you want to. i also like in career the clothes, gear,wheels, and decks you have to choose from to customize your favorite products. the game is also very fun to play with friends online and off..... the controls are ok but sometimes the way you move the anolog stick can messup your trick. i would recommend this game to all the people who like sport games, skateboarding games, and all the real skaters out there who like to game. i definitly enjoyed the game and played it almost everytime i put on my xbox.... i hope this helped i would get it
