When EA came out with skate in 2007 it was a wonderful shot in the arm to a genre that had stagnated with the dominance of a single franchise. The game had many great ideas, but was kept from greatness by rampant technical issues and lackluster visual presentation. The second game in the series promised to get rid of all of these troubles and make the game that the original was always meant to be. While they certainly succeeded in improving upon the first, the second title is not without its downfalls, unfortunately."
