If you've ever wanted to go skateboarding as Jack Black, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 might just be the game for you. Though he isn't officially in the game under his own name, Black's likeness and voice are used for Officer Dick, a fan-favorite secret skater. Here's what to expect and how to unlock him.

In previous iterations of the mainline Tony Hawk's Pro Skater franchise, Officer Dick was an NPC that would drive around School II and chase players with his golf kart. Eventually, players were able to unlock and play as Officer Dick in the game. He was just a generic-looking rent-a-cop back then, but he gets a makeover in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, with Jack Black's face and voice now front and center. Who wouldn't want that?

How To Unlock Jack Black's Officer Dick In THPS 1+2

Unlocking this new version of Officer Dick in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 requires some real effort. In order to play as Jack Black, you must complete every Created Skater challenge, of which there are around 24 in total. After completing them all, Officer Dick (AKA Jack Black) will be selectable in the Select Skater menu. Once you start playing as him, you'll instantly recognize him.

We scored the game a 9/10 in GameSpot's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 review, with editor Mat Paget writing, "Playing through the newly remade levels is immensely enjoyable, and that on its own is enough to call Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 a success. However, smart additions and an engaging challenge system make it an experience that's more than just a brief skate through Tony Hawk's past."

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Ahead of its worldwide release, the game was already discounted at many major retailers, including Amazon and Walmart. Its soundtrack alone makes it a worthwhile pickup.
