Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 – Review
24 December 2002
Excerpt: The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater arrived on the scene and did the impossible. Not only did it bring skateboarding to the videogame masses, but it also did so with such proficiency that it immediately became the industry standard—a standard as yet unmatched by its competitors. One ancillary side effect that has not been lost on Activision or Neversoft, is that it helped legitimize the sport in the eyes of many and became a full-fledged sports title as well.
Excerpt: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 's graphics are very comparable to the first game, if not better. There is the issue of distant objects being fogged out (which actually helps keep the speed of the game faster), but textures and levels look better than ever. Player models are equally rendered with very nice quality. Sound fx in the game are just as awesome as before.
Excerpt: Year 1999 was with no doubt the "year of the skater", Tony Hawk's Pro Skater that is. Arriving in October, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater was a game not greatly known to be released but was known by all gaming journalists (such as me) to be one of the best games of the year. Earning titles like "Game of the year", "Sports game of the year" and to some greatest game of all time, Tony Hawk was a force not to be reckoned with.
