"Now it's your name on the box."

So your boards ready, everybody’s watching, your going to attempt a 540 flip over one building to the other ... HA, you wish. Chances are you couldn’t do it, you're probably not good enough but don’t worry, thats what games are for. With this game, you can attempt anything without the worry of falling over and breaking your neck. That's right, you can do it in the 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 you’ll 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 don’t want to see you succeed. You must show your skills and talent to the world.

You can look forward to seeing Tony Hawk, Bam Margera, Bob Burnquist, Kareem Campbell, Rodney Mullen, Chad Muska, Mike Valley, Jamie Thomas, Paul Rodriquez, Steve Caballero, Bucky Lasek, Eric Koston, Rune Glifberg, Elissa Steamer, Andrew Reynolds, Geoff Rowley and Arto Saan, all the pros, helping you on the way or even just skating around.

You can now drive cars or other rides and even walk about to climb buildings to do huge transfers. Also once again there are a huge variety of skateboarding tricks to pull off and if you don’t like the tricks, create your own with the new create-a-move option that is new to the Tony Hawk series.

A few other options in the game include 2-player mode, High Score/Free Skate, create your own goals and then try to complete them, system link, a skateboard shop for you to improve your equipment, create a move, create a park for you to skate in, create a skater for storymode and depending on how far you have gotten, create a deck.

The only bad points to the game are that once you have completed the storymode and gone through the storyline a few times, it may get boring. Also, the tasks can become awfully difficult.

This game has provided me with a lot of enjoyment over the past year. I'm sure it will provide just as much excitement for you as it has for me. I would suggest this game to any skateboard fanatic as well as to someone who has never touched a skateboard. It is an outstanding game to play no matter what the audience..
