this action-packed game. Hang on tight, you don't get any points for falling
Sk8er 2 is taking the best parts of both Tony Hawk and Rockstar's Thrasher:
Skate and Destroy. The
models are large and well animated a la Tony Hawk but have the same grungy
street look that the
in Thrasher boasted. Each one was well designed with multiple obstacles
to trick off and unique backgrounds.
of the most impressive graphical features, though, was the lighting, which
already overshadows that done in
previous skateboarding title. Half-broken windows allow streams of random
sunlight to enter dark warehouses,
spray-painted graffiti into stark relief and showing off the dirt from
years of neglect.
