Touchgrind Skate 2 is a skateboard simulation where you use your fingers to control the board. Think of the old Tech Deck mini boards where you'd attempt kickflips and the like. Then, after pulling off a sweet trick, you get an immediate sense of satisfaction. Well, that's TS2 in a nutshell.

The concept of the game is simple, in that you have three game modes to choose from. You can play in a time challenge where the goal is to score as many points as possible in 100 seconds. The other one focuses on you reaching your highest score continuously. Lastly, you have a multiplayer mode called S.K.A.T.E which plays like H.O.R.S.E.

Skate 2's idea is easy to understand, but man is it a tricky (no pun intended) game to master. It's probably one of the tougher sports games you'll play. The good thing is that it's not a stressful game. It's pretty casual so that much is good. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind, both in-game and mentally.
