San Vanelona (Skate 2)

XBox: The Official Magazine (US) - - EXTRA -

When OPM first sug­gested that Heaven could in­deed be a Half­pipe back in the early noughties, there’s a very good chance that the band had sim­ply gazed into the fu­ture and caught an early glimpse of EA Black Box’s rad­i­cal cityscape of San Vanelona. It’s the play­ground for the first two Skate games, a large and di­verse me­trop­o­lis that was as beau­ti­fully crafted as it was burst­ing with per­son­al­ity. The ar­chi­tects be­hind San Van’s de­sign metic­u­lously built it so that it could be a skaters’ par­adise, with ev­ery el­e­ment—from the ramps to just about ev­ery rail, bench, and kerb—per­fectly placed to help skilled skaters truly ex­press them­selves (or to­tally bail).
