Shacknews writes: "If Tony Hawk 2 was the game that solidified that series, Skate 2 may function similarly for developer EA Black Box.
Of course this sequel provides the usual move updates, with one-foot plants, off-board running and other stylistic additions to the game's innovative, analog-based control scheme. The world has been predictably redesigned. And you can play as a chick now, too.
But there are also a few major additions that do a lot to open up the multiplayer experience--making this a serious sequel worth taking note of, rather than an obvious franchise cash-in."
