PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Tony Hawk's Proving Ground is a disappointing entry in the series, especially when compared to such an innovative title as EA's skate. If you've played any game in the series before, there's no reason to pick it up again.
  • Pros: Nailing and linking custom tricks can be an inventive and fun experience
  • Cons: The feeling of "been there, done that" is hard to shake, Underwhelming graphics, physics, and animation disappoint, The video editor could have been so much more
