EA Black Box brought a new generation of skateboarding by introducing skate to the old TH fans and leaving THPG in dust. Then they bring back the sequel to the original. In skate it a earthquake hits San Van and Mongocorp repairs San Van but with a twist: NO SKATEBOARDING! But who cares about that, Skate 2 is just as similar as Skate 1 but with the new Hall of Meat mode a couple new skaters and a new addition to the Mega Compound aka the Fun Track which is as fun as the name really freakin FUN! There are new parks and some classics from skate such as the Mega Compound, and the stadium except it's been redesigned and a good thing for multiplayer is freeskate activities so freeskate won't be so boring and achievements are easy and career is about maybe 8-10 hours and full of pure skate nuggets. The multiplayer is just as good but there are glitchs that EA still hasn't fixed but the DLC is good which makes this a 8 out of 10.
