Underground, Overground, Skateboarding Free* Review with images

Advantagesvariety of missions, familiar elements

Disadvantageslimited lifespan, complicated trick system for a new player

"The series of Tony Hawk endorsed games is a phenomenon. Even the least extreme sport orientated game players usually own a copy of at least one of them. They really took off when they transferred to the PS2 with the third in the series. I donít think I was the only person, however, to wonder where they could possibly go from here. Every time they brought out a new game, they added a new facet, but it was basically the same game, just new challenges, ..." Read review

Tony Hawk's Underground- A Classic in my opinion. Review with images

AdvantagesGreat Storyline, very good soundtrack, fun to play

Disadvantagesbad graphics.

"...the same as all the Tony Hawk's Series for Ps2. Also the controls are veryresponsive which makes the game much better. As well as skating you are also allowed to get off your board, run around, and climb houses and other objectsSoundtrackThe soundtrack in this game is very good. It features Punk music,Rock, and hip hop. Although the songs used in this game aren't (or should i said weren't) to popular, the music is still great ..." Read review

Get Your Wheels Running

AdvantagesVery interactive! addictive, exciting challenging gameplay

Disadvantagessome parts are quite difficult

"...compared to all the other tony hawks games is the fact that there is a storyline which you have to follow in order to complete the game, rather than just going through several different levels as the other tony hawks did.You also have the ability to interact more with the environment- such as getting off your skateboard and running and climbing, and also the ability to drive some cars on certain missions. You Start the game with the option of creating ..." Read review

Don't be a MUG get: THUG!

AdvantagesRUN around!! Create a trick!! Design a deck!!

DisadvantagesBit gimmicky :(

"...is another addition to the Tony Hawkís Pro Skater series. Itís a great installment, but rather a lot like Tony Hawkís Pro Skater 3 + 4. All the great features are back plus a whole host more, including create a trick, WALKING! design your own board! and whole host of new tricks. The main difference with this and the other games is that instead of starting out as a Pro, in this one you start out as a rookie and have to gain your way up the ranks ..." Read review

Tony Hawks Underground (THUG) - A classic game

AdvantagesLots of new features

Disadvantagesfrustrating sometimes, like all games

"...worthy purchase, not only for Tony Hawks fans. I strongly recommend you buy this game, firstly as it can be found for cheap. and secondly because it is probably the best in the series. New Features: You can now get off your board, run to another obstacle, jump back on your baord, and then carry on your combo. Obviously there a new, more detailed and essentially larger levels. Another new feature is the getting your face in the game. Using face ..." Read review

Now it's your name on the box.

AdvantagesFreeform play. Explore huge areas like in a adventure game.

DisadvantagesNothing really.

"...comfort of your own home. With Tony Hawk Underground, you can make a nobody into a superstar, because in storymode you will be able to create your own skater and follow in through the story. With pros, friends and passers by to set you tasks, you can bet youíll have plenty to do. Your main goal is to become a legend in skateboarding like the great Tony Hawk, but a lot of people and even friends donít want to see you succeed. You must show your ..." Read review

Underground, but overly enjoyable.

AdvantagesAbility To Dismount Board. Career mode has a story behind it!

DisadvantagesDriving modes need work. Off-board physics are unrealistic.

"...is the best in any Tony Hawk's game to date without a doubt. After creating your skater to suit your preferences in appearance and skating style (but that doesn't make a very large difference) the story begins. You start as a local skater and try to ascend to the pro level. Also, you can now create female skaters who do (thankfully) have a different voice to the males. The in-game speech does a good job of avoiding boy\girl references, but in some ..." Read review

Tony hawks underground

AdvantagesNew Tony Hawks game out dropping THUG in price

DisadvantagesCan become anoying at time due to lack of level desciption.

"Tony hawks underground is a great skating game and tops all previous tony hawk games. there are several new fetures like being able to get of the board and walk, several new tricks, create the player to look like you and your own board desighn. One of the best parts to this game is that you can explore whever you want without a time limit on all of the levels just free skating until you want to do a mission to get to the next part of the map. I ..." Read review

Arcade Mode :You are an amateur skater , your aim is to go from newbie to pro . In Arcade mode threre are many levels such as Howaii , New Jersey(Hometown) and Moscow as well as many more .

You can get off the board!!!! Review with images

AdvantagesGreat story mode and ability to get off your board.

DisadvantagesAiring in a bowl gets unrealistic!

"...been improved compared to previous Tony Hawk games with new types of games available to play, such as fireball where the aim is to shoot fireballs at the other player and knock him off his board 10 times to get his life to 0. It still has all the old two player features as well adapted for the new maps like graffiti where you have to land a trick on a ramp to turn it you colour, if the other player does a better trick on it the ramp will turn to their ..."

The best extreme sports game on the market.

AdvantagesYou are now the main pro skater

DisadvantagesThere is none!

"I brought this game when it first came out , i saw the game displayed at a virgin megastore and decided to play it, after that i brought it the next day . The music for this game is the best music soundtrack i have ever seen in a game, if you don't like a song you can simply turn it off, untill you can only have your favorite songs playing while you skate. As my favorite music gnere is rap, this game dosn't dissapoint they have artists from ..." Read review

TONY HAWK UNDERGROUND!!

Advantagesgreat story, aility to walk and run, skate through cities

Disadvantageslacking in graphical detail

"After Tony Hawk's proskater, fellow fans wanted something new. T.H.U.G gave us this by turning the franchise into an RPG which provided a whole new level of play simply by giving the ability to leave the board and explore on foot. even climb buildings and drop into half pipes and bowls from a roof of almost any building! The great thing about this game is you dont have play as any of the proskaters like in past games. The story mode offers the ..." Read review

THUG- Tony Hawk's just gets better!!!

AdvantagesExcellent gameplay, wide choice of modes, online gaming

DisadvantagesAge restrictions, career mode could be developed, THUG 2 is out

"Although the Tony Hawks series of games tend to improve every year, this one seems to have totally smashed the standards of skater games set by it's predecessor (Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4). The wide variety of tricks, grinds, combos and the devastating special moves is a drastic improvement from past Tony Hawk games. The delight of nailing a 500,000 point combo is a major feat to accomplish, and with regular practice through the vast selection of different ..." Read review

Expecting your standard Tony Hawks sequel? Think again. This time the developers have come ... more

up with a different slant and have achieved
something really significant. The idea this time
round is that you start off on the streets with
nothing but your board to keep you company. Start
skating around, pulling off tricks and sooner or
later youll be spotted; then you start to make
your way up the boarding world. Thats easier said
than done, of course, with a bigger selection of
tricks to learn and pull off. The upshot though is
that the game presents a high quality, long-term
challenge as you slowly make your way to the top.
Something that doesnt work quite as well is the
ability to pick up your board and explore on foot.
Its theoretically supposed to make things more
flexible, but ultimately accounts for the games
few slower moments. However, ultimately Tony Hawks
Underground works spectacularly well. Its gameplay
is sublime, the multi-player modes are dangerously
addictive and it scores immensely in the value for
money stakes too. Easily one of the most playable
games on any console out there, it holds appeal
for gamers at all levels of experience. --Simon
