    Well, I'm a die-hard fan of the Skate series and can't wait, I know it will be good. The 2nd part was definitely a better product than the 1st one and you could add the locations from 1st part to the 2nd... awesome game, really love it.

    Used to skate back in the old days but not anymore... fun.

    I have the first one, quite like it but the camera angle really gets on my nerves. I can see what they were going for with it, but I found it just so impractical for a skating game. So many times I've wanted to flip onto a rail, but haven't actually been able to see the damn rail because it was obscured by my character and just completely screwed it up as a result. I mean, I'm pretty sure that if I was skating in real life I'd be able to see what was directly in freakin front of me. In a game like this I really think the practicality of the camera should be more important than it's style.

    Anyway, the point of my rant is: did they improve the camera in Skate 2, or add extra angles at least? If not, any word if they're going to for 3?

    Skate 2 has 2 camera angles - high and low
    Both are a bit to the side so you can easily see were you are going

    If you haven't got 2 then you would be missing out on a great game.
    If you see it cheap it's well worth a look.
    Myself and Maggot are still playing it

    Nice Chief
    Lets catch up online and get some of your co-op challenges done.
    They're the best part of the game ;)

    Looks brilliant, spent many hours with the park editors on the old Tony Hawk games.

    Wonder how long it'll take before the online part is full of penis levels and logos though.
