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.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (19 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (19 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (20 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (20 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (20 Hours ago)
