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!

Fix the camera, horrible.

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.
