Good Game !

Summary: Many of the level goals in Tony Hawk 4 will be pretty difficult even for series veterans, so accomplishing them will be really satisfying. The game throws some strict time limits at you in some of the goals, and some of the later combo goals are tough to pull off. In previous games, failing a goal or missing a jump meant that you had to spend time skating around to get back in position.
Summary: I bought it because I liked Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3. I am not a big gamer, but there are a few games that I do tend to get hooked on. I haven't played this one too much yet, but I like so far. I recommend the game if you are into these types of games.
Excerpt: "Ahhh Tony Hawks - the single most successful gaming franchise in recent memory. Tony Hawks 2 was totally amazing, improving on it's predecessor in every way. So it's only natural that Tony Hawk should make a move to Nintendo's new Game Boy advance console, and the conversion has been pretty successful, but certainly not perfect. The main constraint, of course, is the GBA's small screen, which means that the third person view of the Tony Hawks game ...
Pros: Tony Hawks engine remains pretty much the same, Too addicitve to be true
Summary: tony hawks is now a household name, with at least one incarnation per system of this title, it seems to have monopolized the extreme sports videogame industry. and why shouldn't it? i mean, the games have a reputation for great graphics, gameplay physics, replayablilty, and overall fun. the gb advance, upon release, showcased some cool titles like f-zero and mario advance, yet one title stood out - tony hawks pro skater 2.
Summary: This is a great conversion of the playstation game. If you want all the action from THPS2 as you're travelling, this is the only option. The isometric viewpoint can be tricky to understand at times (ie. You can sometimes see cash, objects etc. but can't figure out where they are). However, it's fun and has as many tricks as the original, as well as 6 or 8 really good levels.
Summary: I've read the other reviews and on the whole I have to agree - this is one hell of a game. You can sit down with it for an hour just practicing a perfect trick because everytime you perform it it will be slightly different. The odd viewing angle does take a little time to get used to (especially if you've played the PC version) but you get to know where your rider is going to land after a while.
