Joystiq Hands-On: Skate 2

A's reentry into the skateboarding genre with the original Skate was viewed by many as an uphill challenge. Its last attempt – the ill-received Street Sk8er on PS1 nearly 10 years earlier – and the fact that Activision's Tony Hawk franchise was the firmly seated king of the hill didn't help. Still, the game's innovative trick controls and return to a more "pure" skateboarding experience proved a huge success, outselling that year's Tony Hawk title nearly two-to-one by some accounts.

Now EA Blackbox is looking to recreate that success in Skate 2 ... not through the usual addition of modes and various novelties, but via some basic evolution of the gameplay fundamentals of the original game.

The story is too old to be commented.
