From the publisher: The revolution continues. Skate 2 ups the ante in delivering all the grit, creativity and culture of skateboarding by letting you skate it your way – both on and off the board.

Or personalize a challenge by moving in-world objects to create your own spots which can then be uploaded, shared and experienced by others around the world.

After a mass evacuation, Mongocorp rebuilt the city but their zealous protection of private property has put a damper on the once thriving skate population. Your mission is to rebuild your career and revive the New San Vanelona skate scene. You have to take back the city ... one spot at a time.
