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.

    GriftGFX The biggest difference to me is how your character POV changes. I don't mind third person games it just changes engagements a lot when people can see around corners and over high cover etc. (1 Hour ago)

    alimokrane @GriftGFX: I very rarely play 1st person SP games. The only ones I played are FarCry 1/2/3, Doom 3, Halo 1/2/3/4/5. RE7 put me off because of 1st person but I will play it eventually. I dont play 1st (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Third person cameras can be a bit annoying in multiplayer shooters since it allows you to move the camera beyond your line of sight. (8 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @alimokrane: Why do you only play third person multiplayer games? Do you only play third person SP games? (8 Hours ago)
