... is freakin sweet.
Way better than the Tony Hawk series.
Realistic gameplay, unlike the Hawk series. You can't do triple back flips and grind the rafters, but landing a hard flip off of a 5-0 grind is very satisfying.
It has a grand theft auto feel to it, there is a large city and you can skate around wherever you like. You can do photo shoots, race, own a spot, or just screw around.
It isn't a button masher, you use your right analog stick to control you board and your moves. Easy to learn, but I am still trying to master a lot of the moves.
If you like Tony Hawk, skateboarding games, or you skateboard, you'll want to check this out.
You have my seal of approval on this one.

I played the first Skate and freaking loved it. They added the ability of getting of your board and walking up stairs, which wasn't possible in the first. I'm going to pick up a copy when i get a ps3.
