"When all the rage and frustration subsides, and all wounds are healed, there's something about Skate 2's charm that will have you creeping back to your console and trying 'just one last time' (i.e a few hundred more times) to get it right. Sure, it's harder than explaining String Theory to a labrador, but you'll no doubt feel handsomely rewarded when you put in the effort. Cool snapshots detailing your tricks, editable video replays, bonuses and cash rewards all help to keep you coming back for more. Skate 2 is not for casual gamers. It's a complex and meaty game for those of us who want to get our teeth into something. And inevitably end up biting off more than we can chew."
