Conclusion: Overall, Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground is an
impressive effort in keeping those involved in
the skating world enticed. The game is
intuitive, realistic, and precise, and that’s
what makes it captivating and unique from other
competitors of the same genre.
Excerpt: Competition is always the best motivator. I wasn't expecting big things from Tony Hawk's Proving Ground , this year's installment of the Tony Hawk franchise, though I was expecting a modest step-up when compared to last year's Project 8 given the release of skate .
Excerpt: Tony Hawk games have a long history of providing hours of entertaining sandbox play and Proving Ground is no exception. This latest iteration does a lot to up the ante for sandbox-based gameplay, moving away from the very linear story mode of Tony Hawkâ€™s Underground and into a more free-form set...
Excerpt: It's been years in the making, but after nine years, Tony Hawk has finally got some really stiff competition. After playing SKATE and loving its intuitive control scheme, I knew that Activision's Tony Hawk had something to be scared of. Really scared of.
Excerpt: Activision has been grinding along with its Tony Hawk franchise for eight years now, practically uncontested. This year things are different with EA’s Skate generating a lot of buzz and some stiff competition.
Excerpt: Return of the Birdman Here we go again, another year, another Tony Hawks game, so is this as good as the rest. Well with Project 8, the guys at Neversoft decided to mess about with the control method and produced a return to form. Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground does in fact follow off where P8 left off.
Pros: Nail the Trick is better than ever and this time you have 3 styles of skating.
Cons: Depressing,bland graphics and just no fun to play.
