What’s it about? Do I have to explain it? Ok, I will. It’s basically a skateboarding role playing game. You start out as a no name skate punk from New Jersey who wants to make it big. Through chance and some good luck, the opportunities are set before you. Are you man (or woman) enough to make your dreams come true?
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly: The graphics on this game are great, the levels are massive, the soundtrack definitely stands out and features a variety of musical tastes with bands such as Stiff Little Fingers, Sublime, Assorted Jelly Beans, and KISS, and the game play flows smoothly. On the bad side if you are just a beginner to the Tony Hawk franchise then the controls may take some time getting used to and there are a lot you have to learn such as how to do specific moves and tricks.
Replay Value: There is so much to do in this game. Even if you just play through and finish the game then set it down for awhile, you can go back and try a different difficulty level, try to find all of the gaps or secret tapes in the game, or unlock hidden videos.
