My Textures Are As Smooth As Your Mom's Ass.

Like I said few days ago the Skate 2 Demo has arrived. I might manage to knock out a demo review this week but I know i'll be getting this game so I may wait and give you a full review.Due to the quality of videos on the web you won't really be able to notice the graphical upgrades, but you will be able to see the improvements to what were already impressive character animations. Plus the physics and frame rate, which were a bit sketchy at times in the last game, have seen great amendment; the game now runs at 60 frames per second (a vast difference from the previous 30 fps), and new physics mean the characters actually bend and crumple like real humans, when flying through the air after a major bail, the guys limbs actually flail about desperately, you can see the panic as he realizes how close the ground is. Very fun to watch. Mwahaha.

There is a graphics comparison between the PS3 and 360 versions of the game at gametrailers.com.

I honestly don't see much difference except that the trees and bushes seem a little more detailed on the PS3, they look blander on 360. I know that in the last game the 360 had a better frame rate but PS3 version had clothes that blew in the wind. From playing the skate 2 demo i noticed that you can get cuts and stuff on your arm, and dirty up your clothes in th eps3 version, don't know if the same goes for PS3 In this video I can make out that the guys long hair moves about slightly on the PS3, I could not see it in the 360 version.

Pretty graphics don't make up for the fact that the game is frustrating as all hell to play

I have heard some really good things about the game, and the reviews make the game seem impressive. But this kind of skating game isnt my cup of tea so I cant hang my hat on just the graphics here. I favor the more arcady, outlandish style of of skater like Tony Hawk . Its just too bad as in my opinion the Tony Hawk games have been on the slide for a while now.

I hate this fucking demo.  No where near as fun as the first Skate Demo, and that asshole that tells you what to do, fuck!  I want to knife that second chin that asshole has.  Fuck I hate this game.

Although i hated the demo, the game seems ok.

God the car models are awful tho.

The first game was better than the second game, I'll just say that. Graphic-wise and game-play wise, the original was much better.

As much as I love the 2nd Skate game, I think it could have been way better and as hard as it was to wait for this title, I would have gladly waited longer if they were to make it more of a quality game like the first one.

Also, in response to your original post, I have played the game on both systems and I can't tell the difference. With a few exceptions in gaming (Farcy, Turok, Crysis...), flora has always looked like crap.

Skate 2 is still an amazing game (probably in my top ten) but it's faults stand out much more than it's improvements.

graphically skate is nothing special
as for the comparison, they look exactly the same.
