  • Rating:4

    This game seems to be cashing in on past sucesses,and I do not recommend it to any Tony Hawk fans with previous games.

    Tony Hawks American Sk8land feels way too much like the old Tony Hawks.That,in itself,isn't a bad thing,but there are already so many of these games,and there haven't been any major improvements over past games,so the me... Read Full Review

    Tony Hawk does it again.

    Tony Hawk's Sk8land is a great game. The controls are great. It actully incorporates the touch screen in a way that adds to the game. The player uses the touch screen to activate certain special tricks, called "touch... Read Full Review

    Lame story and annoying characters make this Tony Hawk game a huge dissapointment.

    Hey pal, do you want to skate? And so begins the same boring, repetitve, lame, cumbersome, hard adventure. You start off as a kid from da hood' and somehow stupidly get to be a mentor under the famous skateboarder. Then ... Read Full Review

    There are a lot of great Tony Hawk games out there,and this is not the best,but it is fun to play in short bursts.

    If you're a long time Tony Hawk fan(like I am),then you're not going to enjoy this game as much as a person who's not very picky about details.This game does have many moves included in most Tony Hawk games,but some of t... Read Full Review

    I just really like this game, a must buy for any sports gaming fan.

    This game is great. The story is any person (you create the player) and you try to make enough ca$h to make your own skatepark as you show people your skills and you do deeds for them. There are many fun deeds to do in s... Read Full Review
