Tony Hawk's Males-Only Ground
22 May 2009
Summary: I never viewed Tony Hawk as a male chauvinist, but without the ability to create a female skater in Proving Grounds, my opinion of the infamous wood pusher has changed drastically. The gameplay is typical of the series, right from the start my character could perform tricks that not even Rodney Mullen could pull off. There is also a new way to do tricks with "bullet-time" like every other console action game is adopting these days.
Summary: I loved the Tony Hawk series on the Playstation 2 and couldn't wait for the next game to release on the Playstation 3. However, when it finally came I wasn't impressed and found Skate to be better. The gameplay isn't very good and the options available have decreased from the last game. The graphics are ok on a HDTV but they aren't very good compared to the best on the Playstation 3. The soundtrack it good but the framerate isn't very good.
Conclusion: I agree with the previous review in that the game was some what dissapointing, Although i have no played many of the recent Tony Hawk Games I used to play the first ones and this version seems to lack an extra dimension in which to keep you going back. The Goals are solid and highly repetitive. My advice is to find a skating game that actually takes place in a skate park.
Excerpt: Cabros, cómprense el SKATE, es un gameplay mucho más renovado y no repite la misma fórmula de los Tony Hawk que no varía hace como 5 años. Este juego se está quedando muy atrás en su desarrollo, más de lo mismo.
