(and I don't think Stoked is supposed to be any more realistic than SW)
are you kidding? have you watched the gameplay movies? obviously it isnt the best way to make comparisons but just looking at the gameplay movies of both games side-by-side, stoked looks ridiculously better and more realistic. shaun white looks like the last installment of tony hawk (another franchise not worth the money anymore; skate IMO kills it) but on snow. the physics of the game even in the movies look crummy (<- wtf? ahaha, couldnt think of a better adjective).
nevertheless, i will be spending my money on skate 2. man it looks too good to be true but knowing how awesome and how much fun skate was, i dont think skate 2 will disappoint in the least.
