Skate 2 is a pretty good skating sequel that comes with twice as many tricks as the first Skate - jumping off ramps, grabbing or flipping the board while you're in the air, jumping straight up from the board and landing on it mid-ride.
In between trick goals, you watch characters trade skateboard jargon like: "Yo, my friend here just got out of the joint." And, "You know we had to come for the first sesh" (session). If you pull off a stunt, the game might congratulate you by saying, "Nailed it, Nailer!"
What is good about Skate 2: It comes with a big cartoonish city you can explore. You get points for skating well, but also for breaking your bones. That's fun. You can also skate against other gamers online.
What's bad: Some choppiness of motion downgrades the fluidity. Also, lumbering around on foot is clumsy. The way your body moves without the board, it looks like you learned to jog from Quasimodo. A lot of gamers will enjoy being able to rearrange ramps; that gets tiresome to me.
