X-Play: Skate 2 Review

Sequels are a funny thing. Either people are so uproariously happy to have another chance to explore a particular game world in an all-new adventure that they are willing to overlook the lack of any significant changes from the previous title. Or they feel cheated if the newest iteration doesn't offer enough measurable advances to the series to warrant another $60 purchase. So does Skate 2 do enough to keep the series' momentum going forward, or will the weight of its revolutionary predecessor keep it from reaching new heights in the genre?

Pros:
* Still the best skateboarding game on the market
* Tons of events, challenges and places to discover
* Great community features

Cons:
* Essentially a prettier, slightly updated version of the original
* New off-board controls are stiff and frustrating

The story is too old to be commented.
