Some may never have believed that the popular and revered Tony Hawk franchise would have a legitimate contender...especially if EA was behind the development. But lo and behold, the orignial Skate proved to be an excellent boardin' title, and now, hardcore fans everywhere are eagerly anticipating the sequel's release this month. If you're still on the fence about this one, bear a few things in mind: 1. there really isn't anything all that jaw-dropping in January, and 2. this gameplay video proves that EA is dedicated to both authenticity and freedom. You'll have to wait a while longer for Tony Hawk's Adrenaline and the weather still sucks outside, so why not indulge in what should be an awesome skateboarding adventure?
