"The original Skate was a complete breath of fresh air for the skateboarding video game genre. It strayed away from the typical Tony Hawk formula that gamers had been used to and delivered a more realistic feeling game by completely changing the way the trick system works. But that's not to say Skate was a perfect game. While the trick system was good overall, it had some rather noticeable kinks throughout. So when thinking about what you would want out of a Skate sequel, odds are you wouldn't ask for much more than for them to iron out the kinks in the original game. And this seems like exactly what Skate 2 is trying to do."
