Summary: This is probably my 2nd favorite skating game, The career mode is kinda short, but fun, and you can completely customize your character. Once you finish the campaign, and you start to get bored you can create your own goals, which is very fun! The create a park is pretty ok. This game even has board wear! (For those of you that don't know what I mean, when You grind, the board gets scratched and stuff just like real life.
Summary: unfortunately it is too short and easy along with the lack of depth to the game. and the story mode is a bit weak, however they make up in that with the classic mode. and what else is great about this game is that its still highly addicting even after a year of use, while most others are forgettable a month or two after purchase. i reccomend you buy this rather than THUG1 or THAW. I garantee you will enjoy this game for a while.
Summary: I realy do wish i could rate this game with 5 BIG stars, but i cant. Heres the thing. The edition to the Tony Hawk games (story mode) was AWESOME. It was more than awesome. The old ways of the game (classic mode) sucked. So I rate story mode 5 stars and classic mode 1 star. My reccomendation is to buy the game now that it is only $20 and only play story mode.
It's all fun and games until someone blows up Skatopia

Summary: I was a big fan of THUG. It was challenging, and over-all, I enjoyed it just as much as I enjoyed the original Pro Skater the first time. I loved THUG2, but I had a few problems with it. 1) Some of the controls were different. I went, litterally from playing THUG in one hour, to playing THUG2 in the next - and I had to re-learn the controls. This was disappointing. I don't know why they changed them, but it was kind of frustrating. I didn't like it at all. 2) GOALS.
Summary: I have always been a huge fan of the Tony Hawk series of video games, ever since the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (THPS). I have seen many improvements to the original formula over the past five years, but the last couple of games in the series have been disappointing. For me, the high point of the series was THPS 4. It had a ton of challenging goals, awesome levels, and is the one game in the series that I will pull out if I just want to goof around.
Summary: The case was damaged, but that might have been a shipping issue. The disc is not flawless, but is in nearly perfect shape. I was pleasantly surprised to see the instruction manual included too. This arrived pretty quickly, and the game itself is every bit of fun as I remember. I have played every single game in the Tony Hawk skating game series and this was one of my favorites in terms of gameplay, which makes up for it's sub-par storyline.
Summary: THUG 2 is one of the best continuation of the series yet, and for fans of the good ole' 2 minute time limit can be found in classic mode. The graphics dont seem to have improved much since THUG 1 and only 1 new move which is the natas spin (hundreds of new moves if you count over the top special moves). The only bad point about this game is that it is too easy, any experienced player can complete the game on hard in a few hours on story mode (all goals completed).
Excerpt: "When Tony Hawk (or rather the developers of the Tony Hawk series, I suppose) allowed the skateboarders to alight from their boards, it completely rejuvenated the series. Possibilities now seemed endless, as players were now able to climb ladders to reach higher ramps, hang off telephone wires, and the game generally became a more well-rounded experience. I was wondering whether they could make it any better with a second in the 'Underground' series, ...
