Product Reviews


Worthy successor to the original

The first Skate really blew my mind with impressive gameplay leaned toward realism. At the time Tony Hawk Pro Skater looked like an episode of Jackass, not a game. Something needed to change, and changed it did. Skate 2 does everything the original did, and does it better. There are more modes, better online functionallity and it looks better. But most important of all - it runs smoothly (something that the original failed misserably).

Stuff I liked:

Gameplay, Soundtrack, Online, Good graphics

Stuff I disliked:

Not so fun to play alone, a LOT better with friends
