Games Review: Skate 2

PS3, Xbox 360, EA, £49.99

This sequel starts off with your release from jail into a city that has changed massively during your five years inside. The evil Mongocorp has locked down the rails and concrete arenas to prevent gnarly dudes from having their fun.

In order to rebuild your free-skating career, you have to beat the corporate security guards and skate locked-down terrain to earn cash and kudos. Frustratingly, in order to “own” your spots, you have to work hard to perform enough tricks to accrue the points required. Still, there’s plenty to keep armchair boarders occupied in this stylish title.
