Anybody else excited about Skate2 coming out soon? I heard there is supposed to be a demo next Thursday for the PS3. I'm going to pre-order after I get done working in DC today. From what I can tell it looks like they added some great features left off in the first version.

I don't know yet. I was never really into skating games, but this one does sound interesting. Hopefully the demo will convince me one way or the other.

Played the demo on 360. It's great. The new abilities are very nice. Will be getting it on PS3. Skate is one of my favorite games this gen.

Let me guess. You don't want your 360 rrod while pulling an amazing trick?

Yup I'm getting it,demo is great but I'm getting on PS3 instead too. Yes partly because my 360 has broken 5 times.

The original Skate game was great, I'm looking forward to the demo. I would have bought Skate but could never get the hang of doing manuals so after awhile of playing I got "stuck" and could unlock anymore locations or items. I loved the open world where you could skate around and explore the city, the trick system was very fluid. I saw some videos of Skate2 on the free Qore Xmas edition and it looks like its going to be another great game.

I really liked Skate, and I'm usually not into sports games. There's something really satisfying about pulling off complicated tricks as you free run through the city. I'm definitely picking this one up as well.

Based on the demo they kept the trick system the same so if you played Skate 1 you can just jump right in and start throwing down right away. Lighting and overall graphics have improved greatly, the city looks dirty and dusty with better shadows and textures. Animations are more fluid / smoother as well. Looks like EA has another winner on its hand here.

Yup, demo played great but the graphics seemed a little worse than Skate 1; I played it a long time ago, so maybe I'm wrong but it felt like this demo was an earlier build or something.


Either way, played great, I love being able to get off the board and move stuff around. Definitely will be picking this up.

I think the graphics are on par wtih first - some may look better, the demo was darker due to local , also the frame rate is a HUGE step up, added tricks , def was fun, should be good, sounded like they added in burnout MP sys , so should be a winner there as well, first reviews I saw where all pretty good, also pre order to pu my tee shirt ! lol traded some games in as well so it was like $5 in end.

This disk actually plays better than the demo, it feels that way to me. I only played for about 20 minutes though. But the tricks seemed to be a lot smoother. I'm playing on a BenQ 24 PC LCD with HDMI since my 30" Philips LCD crapped out on me. I am patiently waiting for my Samsung 46A750 just 1 short week for delivery.
