Summary: Fun game so far, some cool trick features... still not entirely realistic when it comes to the skaters abilities... he apparently can ollie 6 feet high. Pros: Different career paths you can take. Customizable skater You can get off your board and actually run around and explore Cons: A bit too surreal glitchy graphics crappy music selection
Summary: THis game is a new mix on all the classic tony hawks. It includes arcade mode in the career mode, just like the classic arcade mode from proskater 3 and under plus hawkman mode which includes harder and better challenges to gain more experience points for your character. The customization of the characters is also amazing and vast. Thsi game definitely lives up to, if not surpassing, the tony hawk series' expectations. A great buy for all lovers of the series.
Summary: I thought the best part about this game was the story mode that takes old guys like me through the basics, without making you feel like a beginner. I got this for my son, and he can do some skateboarding in real life. Now we can play together at something, and maybe I might understand what "grinding", "ollies", and "kick flips" really are!
Summary: I've been a fand of Tony Hawks games since they came out on Playstation (One) and this one keeps the series alive. I haven't played the last couple Tony Hawk games that have come out, so this one had a couple new features for me. I LOVE THE NATAS SPIN! That's an amazing added trick that you can do. Plus, Nail the Trick and Nail the Grab mode make it really easy to string a few tricks together and it looks sick while you do it. A great addition to the series.
Summary: Tony Hawk games are fun, but they're repetitive. How many custom characters do I have to create until you accept me as a pro-skater, Tony?! Anyway... The game is fun on those basic levels. The tasks are fun, but they get a tiny bit harder after awhile. I can't tell ya how many times I about smashed my controller before my character would stop getting caught up on something in the world and wouldn't let me pass a task. But it's addictive.
Summary: Tony Hawk has always been a staple in my holiday gaming, but with each passing year, I find myself dedicating less time to the series’ new release. The gameplay has always been solid, but the level designs, career path, and overall vibe of the game have been very hit or miss. Proving Ground nails nearly everything it attempts, making it the most enjoyable Hawk in years, and a game that I will play religiously for months on end.
