Gregory Thompson writes "Something has gone terribly wrong in Skate It's San Vanelona. A disaster of unknown origin and type has destroyed the city into acres and acres of toppled buildings, lonely debris, and defunct parking lots. What disaster could accomplish this? Who knows and who cares because all you want to do is skate it (and we have title). EA Sports has actually created Skate 1.5 with this pseudo-sequel to give you something to tide you over until Skate 2 arrives in January. Can Skate It shred with the best or will it grind to a halt? (I'm using my newly learned skateboarding terms…impressive, eh?)"
