best of the best
Skate 2 is unlike any other skating franchise i've ever played. I was used to the Tony Hawk series, but after playing this, I was blown away. The graphics are amazing and the realism is incredible. The tricks are more realistic and the open-world terrain gives it a feeling of endless possibilities of tricks, bails, and stunts. The fact the you can get extra points and money when you fall or break bones make the game ten times more fun. I also enjoyed the death races, where you go up to astonishing speeds which no other game could contain. I definitely recommend you buy this game!
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
You could go 10 hours playing and still like it!!
This game is amazing. i skate in real life and got some tricks from it :)
Great Skateboarding Game
This game is very good. I have so many things to say about it. First of all it is a very fun skateboarding game, I play on live and it is very fun & addicting. The controls are awesome and so are the graphics. I'm glad their making Skate. 3 because that will take these games too a whole nother level. This game has been great and I was very satisfied with skate. The music (lyrics) could be a bit better like skate. But that does not really matter. The maps are better in skate. 2 and so is the gameplay. They added more tricks and more game modes. I like how you can rank up on live in a single game (spot battle, etc.) They put alot of work into this game and I am very satisfied. It is worth it! Consider this as a birthday present or christmas present. Great job EA!
Skate 2 is Alright
I got Skate 2 the other day, and I was amazed about how it felt to play a game that wasn't button based like TH. Though I do got a few gripes about the game. First and for most, some challenges are just retarded. Not going to spoil it for anyone, but Danny Way's challenge is just down right stupid. Skate prides itself on not being another TH game, yet this challenge begs to differ. Other than that, skating around San Van is amazing. The buildings, people, cars, road..even the ROAD RASH on your character when wiping out is awesome. I hope Skate 3 has a little less gimmicy challenges, and focus more on how skate boarding really is. Nothing outragious or mind boggling. Other than that, I'd recommend this to someone who is willing to take the time out of their day to try an accomplish the impossible.
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.
Skate 2 BEAST
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
this game is good and competative but mostly fun co
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
