The first one was aweosme. A pretty big learning curve but I got pretty good at it. The new one looks evem more complex.
TheAnalogKid2112
I hope they add some new shit to do after you beat it.. I got so sick of that game.
Pieface
Indeed the first one was awesome, I completed the game fully and still wanted to play more.
BioSphere
this game looks so awsome! I was hoping that you'd be able to walk and you can! That new feature being able to move things? that looks sweet!
After thug 2 the tony hawk games just started going downhill really bad. This makes up for them so much...
Cant w8! This game and killzone 2 are the games im looking foward to in the future.

"On May 19th a short teaser and a short plot description were released by EA. While no information was given about the gameplay or technical aspects of the game, it was said the game will take place five years after the original. It was also hinted that the difficulty will be tweaked. As it stands now the story revolves around your character's disappearance, and the resulting security that has been tightened in San Vanelona.
During an interview with IGN, Scott Blackwood, executive producer on the title, has revealed some new updates on what to expect. Skate 2 picks up five years after the events of Skate It, San Vanelona was left desolated and in ruins. Since then a mega corporation called Mongo Corp. rebuilt it, and gave the city a complete overhaul creating "New San Vanelona." There are plenty of new places to skate including more skateparks, raw street spots, crazy hill bombs, and sick pools. Security will be back and definitely playing an important role. The game will stay true to the original 'Flick it' control scheme. This time around the player will be able to use their hands and feet in different ways to do bonelesses, no complies, finger-flips, inverts, hippie-jumps etc, also the ramp mechanics have been modified allowing the skater to do inverts, one foot airs, grab grinds and more. The two other additions to the controls in Skate 2 are the "Grab the World" and "Dismount" buttons, both of which offer a ton more game play possibilities. Shown in a recent trailer, the skater is able to get of the skateboard and move around. Many sponsorship partners from original Skate will be returning as well as some new brands."

Sounds like they've added enough stuff worthy of a buy. One thing I want them to take out is the side kick. That was a stupid product placement. Id want it a generic unbranded phone. All the other products are justified because they are bands of boards, clothes ect.
BioSphere
This looks like it has so much replay value!

Than animations look stiff to me in the video. =/

If there are PS3 trophies, I'll so buy it. Otherwise nooooooo

Well wasteland was there and wasnt ther for me. the graphics were so so.. I liked the graphics from thug 1 and 2 better. realistic but not too realistic. I didnt like road they took for wasteland so much. thats what made the rest go down that suckish road. After THP8 was released all i thought was that it was rushed and they were only about the graphics. The funness wasnt there anymore. I gave up on THPS games and went to SKATE. And I was very pleased with the first one. And 2 looks like its gonna be a blast.

Yeah. Totally. Thug 2 had so much humor in it. All kinds of fun shit to do. IMO Thug 2 was the best. Thug 1 was truly amazing, though.

I cant see anything the tony hawk skater franchise can do to make a better game then skate other than completely ripping of skate's thumbstick flick system.

Agreed, Thug 1 and 2 was massive fun and lotsa crazy shit in some of the lvls, Project 8 just kinda sucked, everything just seemed off and it stopped being fun. Skate seems to have innovation on its side, but still after the flick system wears off some it wasn't as fun as thug games were. Skate's very fun system but it still lacks in areas. This is looking pretty promising tho, I think it'll be worth a buy try out to see just how much improvement they plan to do.



I also missed the level based thing, open ended doesn't take you to crazy locations. which was my problem with wasteland and project 8 ect. Nothing was as cool as doing a board slide down the barrel of a tank. =(

It doesn't wear off if your good enough at it. Im constantly trying to make my lines as clean as possible. And always looking for creative places to do hard tricks that other wouldn't have though of. Then I upload them, download them and put them together and upload it all on youtube.

I didn't mean it like that. I just think the THUG games had more fun things to do in them, that flick system is very good innovation, I was mostly just pointing out everything in SKATE other then the trick system. I couldn't think of the right word to use, I meant after the general excitement of it goes away you start noticing some things quickly. I liked the crazy stunts that were in the THUG games. SKATE still seemed un-tapped, then again allot of thought prolly went into that trick system itself. I am very curious to see what the difference will be for SKATE 2, far as I know Tony hawk games are dead now so I hope SKATE 2 makes a great game.

Well it certianly had more modes. After skate I found the core gameplay of the series to fake and mindless. So alll thse little extra things I couldnt care about. Its like the whole IV vs SA thing.

Its tricks off I did off a video game with shitty editing. What did you expect?

I've seen shittier replays form the game that have more than one star. Not to mention all the utter shit that goes on youtube. Its also a waste of time wathcing it if you havent played the game. 2.5 would be fair. It was more about making it than it is watching. I love the game, it was fun doing. I can't wait to see what I can come up with in the new one.

I got bored of skating games after tony hawks 2. I did try the Skate demo, it seemed pretty complex just to pull off simple moves, so i never tried it again. There isn't much more new things you can add to a skating game imo.

Lmfao, try not sucking and the game is a lot funner.

It wasn't about sucking, it just seemed like to much effort just to flip a board. It isn't what i'd call fun.

Not the editing, I mean some of the trick combos looked awkward during parts where the movements looked impossible, I cant say much besides I like things moving realistic. I have a real problem with disliking it when the leg moves 4 feet in a split second. o_o

Take that up with the game's animatiors. If not my fault I can flick my thumbstiks at lightspeed.

There is more than just that teaser. I am probably getting this game. Other than new areas to skate there is new tricks. Take a look. Getting off your board makes it that much more realistic.

Indy
Yeah, ollying those stairs was really annoying lol, and skating up hill.
DiO
Not to mention instead of falling over when you hit a small bump at low speed he just jumps off the board. Moving environmental objects pretty much makes it endless with game play. Sure its not as drastic as Tony Hawks park creater but it is more realistic. Kicking the board at peds looks funny as hell.
Indy
I loved the ragdoll effects, all those failed jumps, I wanna see broken bones though.
Dr. Evil
Why is everyone talking shit about Distruckshun's vid? It wasn't too bad. I love gapping things, the railing at 3:27 is one of my favorites. I never really got bored with after beating the game. I would just mess around, try to up my score on the own the spots. Can't wait for the second. Walking will be awesome. Skating uphill all the time was a pain in the ass. Same thing with the stairs. From watching the trailer should be able to handplants, that'll be sweet.
