Stick it to the Mongo security guards as you tear up the urban landscape. Skate's revolutionary control system returns (with new independent hand and foot controls), so you'll pull of tricks using the analog sticks, not by mashing buttons. And speaking of tricks, there are now even more of them in your arsenal - over 200 in all. This time, you can even hop off your board and move objects into perfect trick-friendly positions!
