Excerpt: Kickflip + Manual + Wall Ride + Rock the Bells! + Wallie + 180 Kickflip to Indie + BS Boardslide + 180 Melon + Manua - gone. Tony slips backwards and it looks painful. Before he can complete the squirm animation and get back on his feet, I’ve already tapped start, down, X. Oh man, this song. Wall Ride + Rock the Bells! + Wallie + 180 Judo + FS 50-50 + 180 Melon . 15,000? Poor. Start, down, X.
Excerpt: For the record, this game is NOT just a PS2 or Dreamcast port, like some others games coming to the Xbox. It takes advantage on the Xboxs powers, networking and graphics. Hear me out, I own Tony Hawk 2 for the Dreamcast, so for someone to just add X on the end the title, it better be good. Let me share with you what theyve added, 5 new levels, plus all the levels from Tony 1 & 2!
Excerpt: Activision and Neversoft were thinking of the power of the Xbox, when recreating the game for Xbox fans. However, they haven't really expanded on the THPS formula. In otherwords, the THPS world has not been improved in any way.
Conclusion: THPS2x is worth playing if you are a fan of the Hawk series--and if you have not played a Tony Hawk game, THPS2x is the ideal game to get, since it has all the levels from the first two games. Still, if you have played THPS and THPS2 to death, THPS2x has very little new to offer besides a better audio-visual presentation and five poorly designed extra levels.
