Skate 2 offers a bit more flexibility then its previous brother did and gives you enough options to keep you around for a while. However, its stringent camera and tank like character movement might throw some of you off a little. Skate 2 feels more like a work in progress than a true sequel. With few, if any, updates to the gameplay engine it feels as if Skate 2 was just meant to be thrown out into the wild instead of taking advantage of new opportunities in development. Don't be discouraged skating fans, it's still a decently built game that offers a playable skating experience, just don't expect a true sequel.
