    Hawk in is best!

    The game is one of the best release titles for this hand held system. "THPS2" features a 45-degree angle viewpoint -- not a complete bird's eye view, yet not completely parallel to the sk8er either. There are seven le... Read Full Review

    I think it is simply The Best Skateboarding / Extreme Sports Game ever.

    Perfection must be impossible to create in a time when modern video games were still in their infancy. I mean it was only about 1987 when 3-D arcade games were introduced. In the United States and only was a few years be... Read Full Review

    A blast from the past, and a very fun experience.

    A game about doing tricks and combos on a skateboard. I wouldn't call it simulation because you can do in one minute what the real Tony Hawk does in 10 broken knees, but it's really fun, featuring a series of open level... Read Full Review

    This is an amazing game, which also makes it a very successful push for the sport.

    The Tony Hawk series has gained quite a reputation, and this is where the series first made it's mark as a true fantastic game. The first game had mixed reactions, but no one can hate this game, it isn't for hardcore ska... Read Full Review

    Hawk… This is the skating game that truly flies!

    Most of the time skating games consist of three factors: an unimaginative interface style, repetitive tricks/music/locations and of course falling off your own board. The Tony Hawk’s franchise however, is the complete op... Read Full Review
