Best in the "original" Tony Hawk series...

  • Summary: One of the best games in the series. If you can find it, give the Nintendo GameCube version a spin for yourself!
  • Pros: Great Graphics, Good Control, High Replay Value. Just plain FUN!
  • Cons: Minor slowdown @ Tokyo Level. No Online Play. Critics complain it's too redundant.

  • Summary: Tony Hawk is still a great game, and THPS 3 is the best of the series, but for those who own 1 and/or 2, there isn't much new here.
  • Pros: Controls work great on GC; customizability; it's a Tony Hawk game
  • Cons: OK Graphics; not much improvement over THPS 2

  • Excerpt: I purchased this game online for under £5 and it is easily available in very good condition for around that price. This game supports 2 player simultaneous gameplay and requires 8 blocks on a memory card for saving. Just after you load this game up you are treated to an intro video showing various skater's featured in the game doing tricks, it is pretty cool especially with the ace of spades background music.
  • Pros: Very easy to play, Lots of unlockable content .
  • Cons: Tough game to master .

A good sequel, but fails to amaze by playing it safe

  • Excerpt: By now you probably either love or hate the series. And this game probably won’t break you out of your current opinion of it. If you fall into the former category, you’ll probably enjoy this update, if you are the latter, you’ll want to avoid it. Because although Tony Hawks 3 does throw around a few new ideas, it does little to revolutionise the series. It doesn’t even evolve it that much. What it does offer is an improvement on Tony Hawks 2.
  • Pros: Bigger levels, More music, New tricks, More unlockable content
  • Cons: Gameplay is very similar to previous iterations

  • Excerpt: I got this game a couple of years ago, a few weeks after I got my Gamecube. Before I even got it I knew it was going to be great, and I wasn't wrong! It's a great game! It is the third game in the Tony Hawk series, and the aim of the game is to beat all of the levels by completing tasks in each level, until you complete the game. The types of levels in the game are famous places around the world.
  • Pros: Loads of great levels, lots of skaters to choose from and hidden ones, endless gameplay
  • Cons: none !  its all great !

  • Excerpt: Developers- Activision 2/Neversoft Age-15+ No. of players- 1-2 Memory Used-08 blocks Genre- Sports, possibly adventure Now Tony Hawks does not really need explaining, he achieved his fame by being the 1st person to achiveve a 900º Ollie. If you don’t even know what an Ollie is, this is not the game for you- start smaller buy no. 1. Any way, Tony Hawks was immortalised in the form of a game, Tony Hawks Pro Skateboarding.
  • Pros: Good new multiplayer modes, good extra players, fairly good sounds, cheap
  • Cons: Third in the series -  getting repetitive, harder than the previous games

Tony hawks three, One year on...

Dark-Clou..., Ciao
18 November 2002
  • 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. The new release from Neversoft is as equally impressive as the previous 'Hawks' games from their stable. This version features an all new game engine, highly polished graphics, and new dynamics to the game (some would say defy gravity!).
  • Pros: Highly Detailed Game engine, Official Skaters, Endless gameplay
  • Cons: Tony Hawks 4 has been recently released

Just Another 'Xtreme' Sports Game...

  • Excerpt: I’m not a very big fan of skating. For one, whenever a go near a skateboard I end up twisting my ankle or splitting my head open. To me it has no use whatever, all skating does is create broken leg after broken arm after broken face. It has no use, well, it didn’t until the Tony Hawk’s series was created.
  • Pros: Very Addictive
  • Cons: Graphics Aren't Too Good
