Tony Hawk's Proving Ground Review

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

  • Excerpt: Skateboarding is the ultimate test of coordination and bravery. On one hand, skateboarders must keep their balance at all times or else they fall. On the other hand, skateboarders must also constantly push themselves to come up with new, more spectacular stunts that will impress their legions of...

  • Excerpt: What a difference a year can make. Last year about this time I was musing on how I was relieved to see Tony Hawk�s line of games make a turn in the right direction, thanks mainly to the addition of the Nail the Trick mode.

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground Review

GamerNode
29 October 2007
  • Excerpt: The Tony Hawk franchise has been around since 1999, and with Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground, it’s reaching its ninth installment. With Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 however, the game reached a near perfect pinnacle. The following rehashes have added small bits of improvement, but nothing to sing praises about.

17 October 2007
  • Summary: Not many franchises can say that they single-handedly launched a genre, but that's exactly what Neversoft's Tony Hawk series did back in 1999. Annual sequels have come ever since, some of which have made major changes to the skateboarding formula, while other have made minor adjustments.
  • Pros: Lots of goals of varying skill levels will keep completists very busy, New moves like the aggro kick and nail the grab bring something new to the game
  • Cons: New nail the manual move feels half-baked, Rigger goals depend too heavily on a poor level editor, Little graphical glitches bring the look of the game down a bit, Seems to suffer from a handful of technical issues that make some goals harder than they should be

  • Excerpt: Jeg kan like godt legge kortene på bordet, først som sist: Tony Hawk's Proving Ground har vært et vanskelig spill å anmelde. Det er sjelden jeg kommer over så velskrudde spill som likevel sliter med å få underholdningsjuicen til å flyte skikkelig, men slik oppfatter jeg altså Proving Ground.
