The sequel to the highly acclaimed skateboarding game, Skate 2 is the fourth installment in the Skate series. It was released on May 11, 2010, more than a year after the release of Skate 2. This title was developed by EA Black Box and published by Electronic Arts.
 Changes from Skate 2
Skate 2 featured a darker side to San Vanelona than was presented in the first game. The city has also grown to detest skateboarding. In Skate 3, EA Black Box decided to change up the formula. This game depicts a brand new city, Port Carverton, a fictional area. Port Carverton is much different than San Vanelona, as this city actually likes skateboarding, and enjoys watching the sport. For example, instead of chasing you out of areas and fining you, the police actually point you in the direction of good spots to skate.
This game is also rigged with new modes. EA Black Box decided to change things up a bit here by adding in two modes, Easy Mode, which makes the game easier, and Hardcore Mode, which makes the game much more difficult. For example, in Hardcore Mode, flipping tricks becomes much more difficult, and you can even bail by underflipping your tricks, which was not a feature present in the previous Skate series.
The Create a Skatepark Mode, which was not present in the first two games is present this time around. A very popular feature from the Tony Hawk series, many gamers were left confused when this mode was not available in the Skate series.
