Tony Hawk's American SK8Land

Game Over Online
16 November 2006
  • Excerpt: It's nice to be surprised, sometimes. I honestly didn't expect too much out of Tony Hawk's American Sk8land. I was a modest fan of the games on the big consoles, but the past few revisions did little-to-nothing for me. American Sk8land, on the other hand, hit me like a ton of bricks. Vicarious Visions is Activision's go-to crew for portable games and they did a bang-up job on this one. American Sk8land sports a surprisingly clear and crisp cel-shaded engine.

  • Summary: Just in the nick of time, the DS gets some quality software. The PSP loomed dark on the horizon, but Nintendo countered the impending doom with their Wifi connection service, and was one of the first games to utilize the new online play. Now I’ve never been a fan of the Tony Hawk games—not that I dislike them or anything, I’m just not into skating. So I can say I came to Sk8land with an objective mind, an important thing for a review, and needless to say I was impressed.

Tony Hawk's American Sk8land

Portable Review
5 February 2006
  • Excerpt: Since gracing the original PlayStation back in 1999, Tony Hawk has made his way onto 15 different platforms since. The game shifted a little bit in its transition onto the Game Boy Advance when it took on its isometric 3D engine. Many enjoyed those games, but most would agree that the console versions were much more appealing. Nintendo has finally released a handheld that could handle the 3D Tony Hawk experience…sort of.

Tony Hawk’s American Sk8land Nintendo DS Review

DarkZero
16 April 2006
  • Conclusion: This is fabulous, it really is. This is a classic example of a developer successfully reworking a title for a specific format. All of the DS’s unique points have been utilised to the full: the touch screen, the microphone, the free online play, everything just WORKS. This is the Tony Hawk’s series’ outstanding moment so far. It is the best game in the series, and more than that, it is one of the best games yet released on the DS, or any other format for that matter.
