Any body tried the demo on PSN/XBL yet? It's pretty good, it would be better if there wasn't a timer on it though

It's got an online party mode with thrasher's hall of meat and another mode as well

Just noticed they murdered protect ya neck on this game though

Brilliant, although a few things do seem a bit last minute (like the walking for one) you're confined to two spaces (back alley and a skate park) and it's timed to 10 or 15 mins so you don't really get much time with it

It shows some of the main game at the end of the demo and the locations look a lot better than the first one

hopefully the character customization is better than the first. you couldnt even wear a hat without looking like a complete retard. itll be nice to walk around...too many times i wanted to get to a spot that was right in front of me but i couldnt haha.

i downloaded the demo a few days back.

its the first time a played the game, a couple control issues i need to get used to. im used to tony hawks configaration, the way you do things and the buttons you press is a bit odd.

also the camera angle is weird. you cant figure out distances very well.

The customization is better this time round, there's more to choose from but your guy/girl does look a bit retarded if ya wear your hood up. The walking, although a good addition, is shit on the demo

It takes a while to get used to it but I prefer controlling your feet with the sticks rather than the buttons. It's hard to pull of certain tricks like 360 flips though

just finished playing the demo and noticed Protect Ya Neck was in it but they totally fucked it up by cutting out all the lines with swearing

the original Skate was my favoruite game for ps3. the 2nd isnt bad by the demo i like it alot better but i think the original was more smooth. the walking in this is kinda fucked and it just doesnt seem like the first. still gunna buy it the first day probably

It's hard to get back into this game when you haven't played it for a while.

I guess I'll have to play the beginning of the game again to learn how all the tricks work.
