Summary: I'll be amazed if this review gets posted. We ordered it in August 2006. Two months later, we're still waiting for it to arrive. We chose standard shipping...which must mean a slow boat from China. Every few weeks we get an email pushing back the shipping date. Why would overnight shipping be offered on a product they can't get their hands on for two months not two days? Check the website, they'll still offering expedited shipping, yet no product for two months.
Summary: I have Tony Hawk 4, THUG, THUG 2 and this game. I loved the previous 3 games and bought them immediately. But this one, wow. Tony Hawk should be embarassed that his name is on a product that was rushed into production with TONS of glitches. The irony of that is that the game features a skateboard gang that is quote unquote anti-corporate. Whatever.
Summary: I write this review as a long-time fan of the Tony Hawk series. Except for the very first game, I've bought all on their initial days of release. THAW follows the same pattern of the THUG games, in that the main feature is the story mode, which -- although a natural pregression for the series -- ultimately comes off as kind of lame. On "sick" mode it is fairly challenging, but on "normal" mode it is far too easy.
Summary: The collectors editon og tony hawk is great it comes with 2 more levels 2 Secret Skaters A making of documentary And More This whole entire game is great but there are some downs. 1 level+2 levels=3 levels for whole game bad running up wall and doing backflip is hard GET ThIS GAME BETTER THAN FIRST AND SECOND
Excerpt: This is one of the best games to come out of the Tony Hawks skateboarding range of games. It was the first in the series to do away with loading screens and one of the best things about this game is that you can skate from area to area with no loading in between. This means a non-stop playing gaming experience. You can play in story mode or in free play.
