Skate 2 (Xbox 360)

 

Skate 2 adds a number of new features to the Skate formula, but not all of them are winners.

Skate 2

 

Skate 2 takes to the streets this season as the only skateboarding game on the market. Its predecessor, Skate, practically reinvented the skateboarding game, making huge advances in the genre, so Skate 2 has a lot to live up to. Was developer Black Box...

Skate 2 has lost a little bit of the depth and flow in its career mode, but what's wrong with that? It broke the mold of having a boarder come from nowhere and make his way to the top. But for those who don't like change, I guess you can follow only...

Rayman Raving Rabbids: TV Party

 

If you\'ve played either of the two previous Rabbids titles, you have a general idea of what you\'re in for here: some laughs, a decent party experience, and a few clever minigames. The biggest changes are the incorporation of the Wii balance board and...

Skate 2 adds a number of new features to the Skate formula, but not all of them are winners.

Intuitive controls for massive trick repertoire ; Huge city to explore ; Online co-op challenges are a lot of fun

On-foot movement is clumsy at best ; Pedestrians get in the way and leave litter ; AI of other skaters is questionable

Skate 2

 

Long domination of the skateboarding sub-genre by the Tony Hawk licensed series came to a spectacular end when EA Black Box produced Skate. A refreshing new control system and different approach to point scoring made it ? in many eyes - the best...

A few key improvements in core gameplay, more of the same elsewhere.

A few collisions

From the start of the game, almost the entire city is available to visit, with a couple of minor exceptions, such as a skateboard park. Another interesting thing to mention is that players can choose to be either a girl or a boy this time around. Hey,...

Skate 2

 

EA's Black Box created the first Skateboarding game to truly test the famed Tony Hawk series back in 2007 with Skate. Not only did it do better

I can’t say that Skate 2 is perfect because even though the majority of the problems with Skate were fixed the game still lacks a solid story mode. Holding it up however is the solid control scheme and the variety in game objectives. The graphics do...

Skate 2 Review

 

A sequel that holds its own, Skate 2 is entertaining even with its scuffed edges.

The city is massive, the tricks are diverse, and it captures the feel of skating

Frustrating difficulty hurdles, controls are not fine tuned, the camera hates you

Though Skate 2 doesn't differ greatly from the original it does stand well on its own. Despite how the game can be frustrating at times for all the wrong reasons you can't help but enjoy yourself when you are nailing tricks and catching huge air off of...

Skate 2 - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

For years the Tony Hawk franchise was the king of skateboarding games. With a plethora of titles spread across every platform available, and no competition in sight, it seemed as though its dominance would keep spreading for years to come. But...

I think it is fair to say that Tony Hawk has dominated the realm of console skateboarding games for many a year, however, all of that seemed to change with the release of Skate. Here was a grittier, up and coming pretender to the throne and it has so...

I thought that I would never get into a skateboarding game but thankfully Black Box have proved me wrong. This title is going to be tough to pick up for newcomers but if you persevere with the controls you will soon be pulling off tricks like a pro. I...
