Skate 2: Demo video

Skate 2: Demo video

The demo of Skate 2 is available on XBLA since a few hours, and as a fan of the first game I had to record a video. No doubt, this is still Skate, but with some of the most annoying points fixed. Still, the walking phases certainly could have been done better, but it's still way better than having to go back up the old way.

Althou' im not a big fan of this genre i gotta admit Skate 2 is a nice looking game: Love the use of colour and the framerate is second to none.

Very smooth demo, didn't play the first one, but this is very impressive. The controls work and the graphics are sharp. Think it's the first buy of 2009!

Just tried out the PS3 version to see which is better, they look pretty identical but the framerate drops at times on the PS3 version.

  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yeah they just need to actually implement some of that stuff. They're charting an interesting path. I feel like they showed this game off before they knew what it was. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz For instance, in Destiny, the whole point of getting loot is to get better equipped to do raids for better equipment to do raids for better equipment and sometimes Iron Banner. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz @GriftGFX: It really depends how they approach it. If you can upgrade your ship, crew etc to navigate more dangerous parts of the sea then it will be a dangling carrot scenario. (12 Hours ago)

    Tiz Also, like the Division you have to cash in the loot before people steal it for themselves. The Division ran into the problem of just allowing anyone in the instances. (12 Hours ago)
