Strategy Informer writes: "When I reviewed Skate late in 2007, I said it was "a testament to what this generation of gaming can really do". After the difficulty that the Tony Hawk series brought to performing amazing feats on a skateboard, Skate was a unique twist. Skate 2 takes everything from its predecessor and expands on it.
Players are immediately introduced to all the famous skateboarders presented in Skate 2 in EA's very fashionable live-action cinematography, where we see our protagonist leaving jail. Then to molding avatars through the character creation, a robust system that allows for too few physical features and far too many accessories to choose wisely from."
