After the resounding success of the first game, Neversoft quickly began working on a sequel improving on all the elements that made the first game such a radical hit. All 10 hardcore skaters from the original return and are joined by Steve Caballero, Eric Koston, and Rodney Mullen. If this stable of aggro skatepunks seems inadequate, you can customize your own dope thrashers using the new skater creation mode. Grab some air and try your hand at a myriad of new tricks, including grinds, inverts, and lip and ollie tricks. Shred the globe-spanning real-life locales included in the game, or design your own dreamy skate park using the innovative park-building interface. You select where to place ramps, obstacles and pipes in custom parks that can be saved to a memory card and shared with your friends.
