Just a little too much for me and my son

Summary: I'm an old guy; my son is 6. Together, we had so much fun learning and mastering Pro Skater 3 that we couldn't wait to try Pro Skater 4. Unfortunately, as advanced as the game is in terms of graphics and intensity, it's just too much for my son and I to enjoy together. I've tried and tried, using the strategy guide as my source book, but the game is just too difficult to master or enjoy.
Summary: I'll admit it right here and now; throughout my college career, and on into my first several years in the workplace, I was a Tony Hawk NUT. In my mind, Neversoft could do no wrong as long as they kept pumping out new stages, new challenges and new hidden characters. The series never grew old for me, so the thought of revamping it never really entered my head. If it ain't broke, don't spend the time and energy fixing it, right? Well, Neversoft gave it a try anyway.
Summary: I've been a fan of the series since the psx version made it our way, but I must admit I kinda expected more on this release. I heard from many previews that the engine had been completely rebuilt and that we could expect massive levels, with flawless graphics. However upon the first day of play all I found was pretty much the same game as Tony Hawk 3. Not saying that's a bad thing, just more of the same.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4; good game, good graphics, and fun.

Excerpt: "Tony Hawk pro skater 4 is an amazing game. Most of the game is very realistic, making it easy for young kids, teenagers, and older people who can't skate. If you can't skate, than this is the perfect game for you if you like skateboarding. Also, it is good for skaters too. The game play is very good, and mostly realistic. One of the unrealistic parts of this game though is that you can skate on grass, at full speed, which doesn't happen in real-life ...
Pros: Mostly realistic, for people who love skating, and it's a good game for people that can't skate
Excerpt: "...the success of the previous Tony Hawk's games, this game is probably not what I was expecting but was a very playable game. The setup of the previous tony hawk's games was very much a simplistic list of challenges to complete, and you just get on with it over a set time. Tony Hawk's 4 sees a different way of earning points, skating around to find new challenges. I personally do not like this setup as it is time expensive in points and can be slightly ...
Summary: I bought THPS3 based on recommendations. Unfortunately I bought it after buying and playing Aggressive Inline to death. I had high hopes for THPS4 and what I got was, well, more of the same. Granted a LOT more, but still the same. The annoying 2 minute time limits haven't gone, they've moved, and appear when you talk to people to get your challenges. Just like Aggressive Inline, oddly. If hadn't played AI, I'd probably be more impressed than I am.
Summary: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 is O.K. but not as good as the third. This time it's put like you are actully a skater going around a city with is good but it has harder to score points on the ramp's and jump's, but you did get to do more realist stuff like chase a car. But it as alot of sad mini games like playing tennis with is a time waster. Plus it has not got alot do do after youve completed it.
Summary: Saviez-vous que Tony Hawk avait signé un accord de licences exclusives avec Activision pour la bagatelle de 15 ans ? On se demandait alors à quoi pourrait bien ressembler Tony Hawk 19, s'il y avait encore de la place pour innover... Au vu de ce quatriéme épisode, on serait tenté de penser que Tony 19 a de la marge côté innovation ! Bon, M.Hawk est un garçon charmant (tout comme moi) doublé d'un skater plus correct- légendsaire avanceront certains.
Summary: Tony Hawks Pro Skater4 hat eigentlich nicht viel neues zu bieten, nur das man seine Aufträge in einem Level abholt und erledigt. Wer Tony...3 schon besitzt sollte sich dan kauf gut überlegen. Wer noch keins besitzt sollte zugreifen.
