are they having a midnight release? obama about to be in office on tuesday and skate the next day is going to be great :applause:

overall skate 2 is really nice. runs a lot smoother and the graphics are great. loving the fact that we can get off the board and move objects around so finding secret spots is going to be coo. customizing is way better with more selection. theres a lot to learn still when it comes to grabs and grinds but i like the challenge. i mastered all the tricks in skate. cant wait!!

I ended up finding this one and added the skate 2 logo to the top so it sits right next to my username on my 360 dashboard

how the fu*k you going to be lead...and still not be as good...wtf

Professor Wikipedia defines the term ďFrame rateĒ thusly: the measurement of the frequency (rate) at which an imaging device produces unique consecutive images called frames. The term applies equally well to computer graphics, video cameras, film cameras, and motion capture systems. Frame rate is most often expressed in frames per second (FPS) and in progressive-scan monitors as hertz (Hz).

Skate 2 on the PS3 defines the same term quite differently: according to it, a ďframe rateĒ is a stuttering mess that can either be a silky smooth 60 fps game or an impromptu 30fps slideshow. Yes, frame rate is something to be maintained as steadily and fast as possible when there is little to bugger all objects on the screen. However, whenever the player tries to skitch their way into a dense urban environment or (god forbid) bust a trick into a skate park full of AI observers, frame rate should respond to this by digging in the heels and slowing the action right the hell down.

To those of you cringing Xbox 360 owners who havenít already read our Skate 2 review, take a deep breath and relax Ė everything is more-or-less fine on your version. Those of you rocking a PS3, you have our sincerest condolences and our shared rage. Here is a snipped from the article:

"But hereís the biggy. There are some serious frame-rate concerns with the PS3 version of the game. We tested both the Xbox 360 and PS3 review code, even taking our rider in each version to the same spot in the world and switching the input on the TV back-and-forth to ensure it wasnít some weird pre- and post-coffee phenomenon. But by comparison, the PS3 version runs like a dog. It is not a game breaker, but we did find ourselves missing landings and grinds simply on a part of the frame-rate screwing up our timing and no matter which way you look at it, that ainít cool. Even the Xbox 360 version under high load (like stacking at full pace into an oncoming car) can momentarily hit Struggle Street."

Donít get us wrong, Skate 2 on the PS3 has got chops in other areas and you should read the review to learn more on its award winning trick system, amazing depth, and looks so sharp they could have your eye out (both, if you have an especially bi*chiní TV set). That said, there is simply no denying the dodgy frame rate issues on display here. Unless Skate 2 receives some serious patching from EA in the launch window we are going to have to list it in with the other jittery cross-platform PS3 titles out there (i.e. BioShock, a.ssassinís Creed, Orange Box, Madden 08, etc, etc).

On a lighter note, read up on why SKATE has legendary status in our Guide to .

I had Skate 1 on the 360 and i hated it but dam i just downloaded the demo on the PS3 and wow this sh*t is now a first day cop. Im loving the controls on the PS3 so much fu*king more man. Customization is nasty too. I love having my created dude having the Marina Nike SB Mids and Supra Cruizers that i also have.

I played the hell outa the first one on the PS3 broke 2 controllers after too many deathraces and trick events once I got it on the 360 I felt the same as you do right now and Ive managed to keep my controls intact (I am buying a new one for skate 2 though) get it for whatever system you want but I agree this should be a 1st day cop for all

lol while i'm typing it out i just saw my first Skate 2 TV spot and according to that GameInformer gave it a 9/10

OXM - 10/10 (not confirmed)

IGN - 8.3/10
Skate 2 is technically an improvement over the first title, and anyone who hadn't yet played the original should skip it and go right to the second. It's a really fun game that allows you to play it the way you want with a control scheme that is second-to-none at the moment. However, it's far from perfect. The story presentation has issues, the on-foot controls suck and it can feel a little too similar to the first game on the whole. Again though, for all its issues, Skate 2 is still a hell of a lot of fun and anyone into skateboarding titles should look no further for the best thing on the market right now.

PlanetXbox360 - 9.1/10
Itís amazing how little additions like getting off the board, fastplanting, and even sorting your replays into categories can have such a profound affect on the whole experience. The first Skate was nowhere near perfect, but it was a massive step forward in the right direction, and away from the high-flying acrobatics and rooftop grinds that have nothing to do with actual skating. To that end, Skate 2 feels less like a sequel, and more like the realization of the original dream. Now, if only I could get my cameraman to shut up for more than two seconds so I could concentrate.

TeamXbox - 8.9/10
Skate 2 is a good, lengthy game, and it has moments of greatness, but itís not great across the whole experience. Iím planning on going back and do more of the unfinished tasks and challenges I have, but Iím sure Iíll continue to swear and be frustrated by the gameís shortcomings (which are easily remedied, as I see it). As Iíve said in similar terms in the past with a couple of other game reviews, playing Skate 2 makes me want to play Skate 3, because Iíd like to think that this kind of feedback will give the makers a better understanding of how the next game could be so much better. Give us a big world to skate, a big bunch of reasonable challenges to complete and durable multiplayer over Xbox Live thatíll keep us playing your game well after weíve finished the Career path. Donít feel you have to make me do something over and over to prove that Iím getting better as a player. Entertain me, but donít overwhelm me. Unfortunately, despite all of Skate 2ís entertainment, it is often overwhelmingly discouraging.

(^uhh...how many of you played Skate long after beating it thanks to the big world to skate? i know i most definitely did/do. that doesn't make much sense to me...)

Xbox Evolved - 8/10
Overall though, Skate 2 is a good challenging package, that the guys working on the next Tony Hawk will definitely have to step to, and we hope whatever happens to the Skate series now that Black Box is gone, it will continue to set the bar for what a skateboarding game should be.

i really didn't expect it to do this well. i expected 6s or 7s and maybe one or two 8s, but never expected reviewers to say it's this great. i thought they'd say that it barely does anything new, but i'm surprised. friday can't come fast enough now goddammit.
