    The new park reminds me of a level from shadowgun. Pretty sick

    The Docks is really disappointing, imo. It's the biggest map in the game and it's so damn crowded with random obstacles that don't flow together. It could have been awesome but there's so much stuff that doesn't make any sense.

    Oh you're trying to do a line? Too bad there's a random pipe end with no purpose at all in your way.

    I'm not really enjoying the docks either, I spend more time hitting random objects than I do trying to do tricks.
    I much prefer the other skate park style levels.
    (Don't know about how the missions play as I don't do them, I just play free skate)

    After completing about 30 objectives, I've got to agree with this. I can't chain any tricks together
    And the triplet bowls are crap. I can't seem to stay in any of them and spam impossibles.. It spits you out as soon as you enter

    I loved the half pipe in the factory park. Could spend hours on just that
    I feel like I'm only playing in the docks to complete the objectives

    Yep, I finished the challenges yesterday and I don't plan on playing it again. Factory is all I need.

    Hope true skate doesn't disappoint with their schoolyard level

    Didn't they update this to save your YouTube login credentials? It saves my email but I still have to enter my password every time. I have gmail's 2-step verification which means I need to generate a new long-ass password every time I log in anywhere, so uploading TGS2 videos is still a major chore for me.

    Please update to save your password as well, Illusion Labs!

    Are new skateparks planned?

    Like warehouse and school-yard in True Skate.

    Doubt it. This company never updates their games after all the promised features have been added

    I deleted this a while ago and just went back to true skate as I prefer the controls and gameplay of that.

    Well judging from alll of their games from the past, yes. But I could be wrong.

    A lot of people seem to like the controls of true skate more, but i find myself doing cooler tricks on touchgrind.

    I find true skate's controls and physics retarded. I liked the game initially when I got it but after playing touchgrind, I haven't touched true skate
    I still play TG. Apparently I've spent 53 hours in the game so far :O

    The physics are actually really good in true skate. I just do not like the way you're suppose to pull off tricks. I prefer Touchgrind because you're not suppose to fling the board freely to do a trick, you just simply fling your fingers in certain/scripted directions to do a certain trick. Plus multiplayer S.K.A.T.E. Is fun to play and the challenges feels like an actual feature to the game that you need to complete. And the board customization is awesome :)

    I just started with Touchgrind Skate 2 after only playing True Skate for a year (I didn't play the original Touchgrind). I jacked up my account and got annoyed with True Skate because of user error, so I figured now was as good a time as any to switch camps.

    While they do play really different, I am finding that with Touchgrind I know what tricks are going to happen when I do them. My gameplay in True Skate was basically mad swiping, hoping that something awesome would happen. Missions were a nightmare because I can never figure out how to be as precise as the model.

    With Touchgrind, I feel like I'm learning how the tricks actually work in real life, and that is making it get a lot easier to control a lot faster. (I have no skateboarding background.) I also like the vibrant colors and overall "game-ness" better. I'm a sucker for challenges and unlockables, so this is scratching that itch better than True Skate was.

    That being said, I really enjoyed True Skate (I'm an either/or kind of guy, so I deleted it). I loved being able to play with only my thumb. And the skateparks had solid variety. I've only played in the Backyard so far on Touchgrind, but I have finished all the training and challenges there.

    At the very least, my day one impression is very positive. Even with having to throw out everything I know about controlling a digital skateboard, I still like it a lot.

    This is the main reason why I like TG so much more.
    I beat the game a while ago and have over 72 hours of gameplay, holy shit! This is what I'm riding right now.

    On another note, I started skating in real life a month and a half ago thanks to this game!
