    There is a demo of it on Xbox LIVE so your best bet is to download that and see for yourself. I downloaded it last night, but I haven't played it yet.

    But if it's anything like skate. then it won't be too much like tony hawk. It is more of a skating simulator than Tony Hawk, since in tony hawk you can just keep doing tricks and flying in the air like crazy.

    Download the demo, and ask Smurf

    It is way more realistic than skate 1 though

    Was the first Skate good? :lol:

    2 looked good, but I've been put off from skating games in general since the last few Tony Hawk games.

    Brandon, I was asking the same question and I feel the same way. I was turned off skating games too since the Tony Hawk games, and Skate 2 really seems to be getting a lot of hype.

    I liked the demo... think I may get this game, I hadn't had a skating game in forever.

    This game is nothing like tony hawk. It plays completely differently, much much more realistic.

    the skate 2 demo scared me away from buying it. the crappy dialouge and HORRIBLE walking controls just made me want to play skate 1 again. "YO that was buttery!"

    But Skate 1 isn't realistic, you can land whatever you want, however you want with bad time and everything. But I noticed in Skate 2 it's different

    I meant realistic as in you can't go flying 100 feet in the air like in tony hawk.

    I think the general consensus on this game is: If you have skate. 1 then no real need to get it as gameplay is nearly identical. But if you don't then it is an excellent game.

    I'm gonna get it once I find a deal on it somewhere.

    As Brownies said ask Smurf haha. I will try and answer the questions I saw where relevent

    It is definitely worth getting and it is NOTHING like ANY Tony Hawk game

    Don't let Tony Hawk games scare you away. Skate 1 set a new mark in Skateboarding games. Skate 2 has improved on this ALOT

    Correct, It's amazing compared to Tony Hawk

    It is a good game =]
    The storyline is short however after this is completed theres loads to keep you busy + online


    Wrong, I paid £40 for this game and it deserves a full retail price!


    I'd say the walking is kinda crappy. Other than that nothing, I'm playing it right now haha :D

    Yeah I don't get how they messed up the walking controls but I can't see it as something that will bother me.

    How is the offline multiplayer? Is it just the two modes that were in the demo or is there more to it?

    That's dumb because its a game that has a lot of replay value. Its just whether its your type of game or not...
