Players make their way to New San Vanelona in this sequel to the back-to-basics skating title from EA.
The original Skate was a breath of fresh air for skating titles, bringing players back to the more natural, down-to-earth style of real-world skating. Players felt in complete control of their skater, pulling off realistic moves with subtle movements of the console?s analogue stick. Skate 2 continues this new tradition, moving players to New San Vanelona, now rebuilt after a disaster reduced it to broken rubble five years ago. Players will need to work in their broken down city to try and kick start their skating career, as well as slowly build up the skate scene so sorely missing.
One of the biggest additions to Skate 2 is the option for players to leap from their skateboards and move about New San Vanelona as they choose, or moves objects around the city. This means players can create their own jump spots and stunts, even sharing them online and creating challenges for others around the globe.
Skate 2 keeps the laid back feel of its prequel, adding a number of fresh and innovative twists to an already unique brand of skating.
