The create-a-skater and skatepark editor are more comprehensive than before, giving a bit more replay value for players who like to tinker with ...
Pros: Bigger levels, More music, New tricks, More unlockable content
Cons: Gameplay is very similar to previous iterations
Excerpt: "Tony Hawks...need I say more? Fans of the original two releases will have heard of this demi-god from the world of skateboarding.

Summary: Hey this is great! Buy it now! Not only can you skate for hours on end always finding new ways of wasting time or beating high scores but it is addictive.

Only problem is it's only 2 players - well nothing's perfect.
