CraigG : After hearing good things on ILG about the original Skate, I picked it up for £7, and two weeks after finishing it I bought Skate 2. It has filled the ‘pick up to pass 20 minutes‘ void left by the shitness of recent PES iterations very well. The controls are spot on, there’s a genuine reflection of your “skill” in the tricks you pull off (people who are rubbish can’t button mash to beat you, or accidentally pull off consistant noliie inward heel flips, etc) and most importantly, the physics feel right most of time. There’s no magnet that drags you to the rail you’re trying to hit just because you press a button.

EZ Snappin: Brutal learning curve eventually turned me off but until I hit that wall I had a helluva good time.

Producer Interview

Cozwn: I’m so glad you can walk up stairs this time; the little dude in Skate 1 was one dalek-ass motherfucker!

If: I get points and rewards based on killing myself in hilarious and inventive ways? What a great idea! The rest of the game is also impressive. Special award to the incompetent GAME employee who put this in the box without realizing when I was trying to buy Skate 1 for less than half the price.
