Description

You were Skater of the Year, on top of the world, making magazine covers, and in with all the pros. But when you went for the biggest shot of your life, you got jacked by the cops and put in jail. Now, on the day of your release, you're heading back to the streets of San Vanelona to make a name for yourself once again. With the help of familiar faces like Slappy, Mikey, and Sammy, you'll make your way back to the top and to the magazine covers once again.

skate 2 is the sequel to the breakout skateboarding hit from Electronic Arts. All the familiar elements of the previous game have been brought back and refined. The flickit controls have been improved, and many new tricks have been added. There are still two career paths, Thrasher and Skateboard Mag, and staples of the previous game like Own the Spot and skate.reel have also returned.

New is the addition of an advance bail system, where you are graded on how stylishly you can hurt yourself, as well as the ability to step off the board and move objects around. You can even create and share your own spots made from movable objects.

Trivia

1001 Video Games

skate 2 appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

German version

In the German version, the brands Mystery Skateboards and Lost were removed, probably because they have the sig rune in their logo which was also used by the Nazi SS.
