I really suck at these games... I had to use the cheats in THAW to get most of the achies... This one looks good, but I know I'll break controllers trying to play it.

Yeah I know what you mean. But about 5-6 months later I managed to get 1,000 on Skate. Looking forward to getting the achievements in this. Only cheevo in Skate anoyed me was get 20 reviews for a photo or video.

I never really got into skate, I used to play Tony Hawk a ton in high school. I tried it once, but couldn't get the controls and I got frustrated lol. I can see it being an incredible game though if I would give it a chance, but to many other things catch my interest.

skate was absolutely amazing, one of the best games of all time.

the demo for skate 2 though.. quite disappointing, looks like they've taken it in the totally wrong direction both aesthetically and in terms of gameplay, and the achievements look so shit and far too easy.
Still, got it on pre-order ;D

When this is released, nothing else will matter.


zigs I'd say I trust your judgement but a lot of friends that have played it (I have no internet/gold meh) have said it's fantastic and they've just made it smoother.

Achievements do look easy, but so were the Skate 1 chieves; easy 1000 and then hours and hours of gameplay.

Smoother? BAH! like fuck they have. got less smooth, and far less realistic. It seems to have gone down the Tony Hawks route of speeding up the whole thing, and giving you unrealistically sick air all the time. and, not meaning to sound like Zero Punctuation, but they have done the brown-filter on everything to try and make it look grimy. But the vivid colours and brightness in the original was SUCH a breath of fresh air, such a great artistic direction!

It doesn't seem as fluid as the original, seems just really fake and shit. And it's kinda, when you have such a an amazing winning formula like the original, why would you want to fuck with it so much?


i loved the skate achievements. They weren't the hardest, but they were interesting, and time-consuming, and fun! the 5 hour freeskating achievement is one of my favourites in any game. And getting all the milestones, and completely everything was great fun and challenging in the right places.
But the skate 2 list... you get 5G for pressing Y. And 50G for going at the fastest speed for 5 seconds. And 35G for spending 30 minutes moving objects around. Where the fuck is the fun? What's with developers making shit-easy achievements nowadays? It's either a sign of no imagination/originality, or proof that the game is rubbish. And i really hope that it is neither of those... but it really seems like it


There are some good new features, but it seems outweighed by the shit. Will definitely play it a lot though, regardless ;D

I got a lend of Skate1 off my friend for a week and found it quite difficult to get to grips with but i downloaded the demo of this and found it quite easy. Definitely gonna get when i can afford it ;]

First one, demo was cool. Nothing I would buy, but very fun and interesting.

Had to post again to say that i'm actually loving this game.
Got off to a bad start with it, and i still think that they've fucked it a little, and stuff like walking is so poorly done, but it's hella fun.

It definately gets a lot better once you've unlocked more challenges, got through all the tutorials and bollocks, and it's a great game. Reminded me why i loved the original so much too
