I thought it got old--fast!
It was cool to use the right thumb stick instead of your typical button combos. However you seem to be limited to what you can do, or at least that is the impression I got from the first hour or two. Usually if the game doesn't hold my attention within the first hour or so I mail it back. I thought it was fun though.
I also like that they give you points for eating it. The worse the crash, the more the points. They even have certain positions you can put the thumb stick in to get more points. I would probably play it again, but definitely not anytime soon.
I was very disappointing with Skate 2. I never really played many skateboarding games but Skate 1 was really good and I played it a lot. So, I was hoping that skate 2 would capture me the same. NOPE!!! Skate 1 was cool with the little controller flickin feature... but uhh Skate two wasn't like 1 at all, it was worse. Got old quick, story was stupid, and very glitchy. Only positive thing was the graphics were a little bit better, and the get off your board and move stuff was an ok feature. But besides all that.. pretty weak game.
But like I said, I dont play skateboarding games that much.
