IGN: Skate 2 Updated Hands-on

IGN writes: "EA and Black Box's Skate redefined the videogame skating genre when it launched last year, dethroning the former king, the Tony Hawk franchise, from the dominating seat it held for nearly a decade. That was only the start, however, as Black Box is preparing its follow-up for release this coming January.

Skate 2 expands upon the original release in numerous ways, adding in new moves to the formula while keeping the old set perfectly intact (which veterans will surely be thankful for). San Vanelona has been rebuilt from the ground-up, offering up new spots to skate while also providing what are essentially remixes of previous hotspots."

The story is too old to be commented.

I still own and play the first skate on PS3, granted it's fun it is still broken as hell. As a skater I was fairly pissed on how realistic it "tried" to be. A lot of tricks and fixed have to be shoved into this game to really impress me this time. I want copping grinds, firecrackers and slappys dammit.
