Skate 2 is an open-world skateboarding game, and the third installment in the Skate series, after the 2007 Skate and 2008 Skate It. Set in a fictional city named San Vanelona, the main character has been released from a five year prison term, and must bring skateboarding back to the city devastated by earthquakes, all while avoiding the Monogocorp goons who are tempting to purchase the city's property. Players gain points by performing tricks, such as flip tricks, grinds, grabs, and ollies. The game also includes an online multiplayer.
Skate 2 received positive reviews, with an average score of 84%, praised for its controls and overall improvement to the series, though criticized by some for its steep learning curve.
Skate 2 was first released in January 2009, and contains 10 online trophies. Since late 2014, the servers involved with uploading and downloading "community-created spots" became rather flakey, until early 2015 they seemed to have shut down permanently without any announcement.
While it's still possible to go online and play ranked matches, those trophies related to uploading and downloading community-created spots, as well as rating them, can no longer be unlocked. Whether this was a glitch or intentional remains to be seen, but the fact of the matter is that the 3 online trophies related to to those uploads/downloads cannot be unlocked, which means the Platinum for Skate 2 is currently Not Obtainable.
Skate 2 contains 3 online trophies - Dethrowned, The Architect, and The Critic, which as of late 2014, cannot be unlocked due to a problem/closure of the server. However, the game does contain 43 other trophies that are still unlockable. So if you're interested, then read on.
From the beginning, you'll have a cutscene to watch that sets the story, the ability to change your character's looks, then a tutorial. After going through this, you'll have earned your first five trophies in the game: Gender Bender, Graphically Extreme, Skater Evolved, I Like To Move It, and Meet Slappy.
Since the game is open-world, there isn't much need of a roadmap. The trophy guides in our Links page will be your best friend here, as it's simply a matter of working through and unlocking what you need. Winning certain events, such as the San Van-a-Slamma or Deathrace will contain several prerequisites which you'll be working through naturally during the Campaign. In addition, there are particular stunts in specific areas which, when completed, will also net you more trophies. We recommend simply going through the offline trophies and knocking them out one by one.
Otherwise, there are a number of online trophies, such as Online Legend for collecting five bronze, three silver, and a gold medal, which can still be obtained. Check out the boosting forums under our Links tab if you're looking for someone to help you with these.
