'''''Skate 2''''' (stylized as '''''skate 2''''') is the second installment in the [[:Category:Skate (Series)|Skate series]]. It is a skateboarding extreme sports game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective. The game takes place in the fictional city of New San Vanelona, which embraces skateboarding, unlike the first installment in the [[:Category:Skate (Series)|Skate series]] Colorfulness and friendliness, the gameplay provides a similar feel to the first game. New San Vanelona is made up of five districts, The Res, Waterfront, Cougar Mountain, Old Town and Downtown Although the overall look of the city is very urban (except Downtown) each district has its own unique designs and monuments. Downtown is full of slick ledges and rails, while the Upper Res is full of banks and pools to empty. Cougar Mountain is the coolest; it is home to a huge dam that has to be emptied, Danny Way's Mega Compound that is big and has lots of room to nail those hard to make tricks and grabs.

Skate 2 (stylized as skate 2) is the second installment in the Skate series. It is a skateboarding extreme sports game set in an open world environment and played from a third-person perspective. The game takes place in the fictional city of New San Vanelona, which tries its hardest to stop skaters, unlike the first installment in the Skate series. With a changed city, a hope to revive skating, and security everywhere, the gameplay provides quite a different feel to the first game. New San Vanelona is made up of five districts, The Res, Waterfront, Cougar Mountain, Old Town and Downtown, Although the overall look of the city is very urban (except Downtown) each district has its own unique designs and monuments. Downtown is full of slick ledges and rails, while the Upper Res is full of banks and pools to empty. Cougar Mountain is the coolest; it is home to a huge dam that has to be emptied, Danny Way's Mega Compound that is big and has lots of room to nail those hard to make tricks and grabs.

Several notable skateboarding professionals appear throughout the game, such as Danny Way, Darren Navarette, Terry Kennedy, Eric Koston, Chris Cole, Pat Duffy, and Marc Johnson.
