Most video games offer a more accessible, entertaining version of some real world activity (whether it's skateboarding or martial arts) and while Skate 2 can be fun, be prepared to eat pavement a lot.
The controls for Skate 2 are centered around your controller's analog sticks. You manipulate the skateboard with swirling, flicking or tilting the analog stick in varying degrees. Pulling the analog stick halfway down causes the board's nose to tip upward and pulling the stick halfway up tips the nose downward. Who knew the analog sticks had so much potential?"
