I spent a lot of time playing the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, and I was very rarely able to complete levels with anything resembling style. But there will inevitably be someone who will absolutely master a game, and Pro Skater 2 is no exception. YouTube user GeorgeThePlushie has just posted a speedrun of the game, and it's almost unbelievable.
He managed to beat Pro Skater 2 in 3 minutes and 26 seconds, making it through the objectives and the levels at an absolutely blistering pace. To score high enough to complete the score-based goals, he continually jumps and does tricks as he rides through the level. Almost more impressive than the way he plays, though, is the way he navigates through the menus. It's so quick and efficient that it's difficult to follow what's going on.
The speedrunner does utilize glitches in maps and he clips through some walls, but that doesn't take away from how impressive this run is.
Have you ever attempted a speedrun like this? Let us know in the comments.
