has anyone played the demo of this? is it all kinds of amazing like the first one?
It's better. You can now get off your board, drag the scenery around to make new jumps and stuff. The player editor is great, I made a really fat bald chinese bloke with purple socks and tiny shorts. Also, the hall of meat mode is brilliant - basically you have to deliberately bail out of a trick and watch as your body rag dolls! :D
Might possibly be buying it when it comes out. Also: got your xbox yet?
gunna get online tonight and add some peeps. Lizard Hips right?
also thats amazing.really cant wait for it!they havent changed the camera or anything silly have they?
You might be able to get off your board but the control is dreadful. I've only read one review so far and it was quite scathing - hopefully it hasn't turned into a Tony Hawk style button bash nightmare.
OXM scored Skate 2 as an 10/10, saying it had good control but will be too hard for casual gamer. However, they say the new tricks and city make the game a must buy. Game Informer gave the game 2 9's out of 10 in their February issue, one for the main review and score and the other for the second opinion, stating that Skate 2 accomplishes the impossible task of making old gameplay feel fresh. They said that while some new tricks were added, the game built upon the original and improved its formula.
IGN scored Skate 2 as an 8.3/10
I'll be on Gears 2 tonight if you fancy a game with me and some other peeps. Not sure what time as I've got college, but I think I've only got to go in for a bit, so I might be able to get out early. Usually start playing around 9.
