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.
Excerpt: Tony Hawk Underground 2 is the latest installment in the Tony Hawk series of skateboarding games. I was a big fan of the series on the PS1 but the game has progressed a lot since then. This new game has a storyline featuring the Jackass crew, basically Tony Hawk competes with Bam Margera in a competition who can get the most points by doing skating and other wacky challenges.
Excerpt: Tony Hawks Underground 2 is a skating game for the Playstation 2 developed by Neversoft. The story in the game is rather silly thanks to the games focus on its new co star of Jackass fame Bam Margera, he and Tony want to team up going on a tour around the world on world destruction tour which involves two teams of skaters going around trying to destroy everything they can!
Excerpt: Tony hawks has always been a massive game on every console, tony hawks underground 2 also lives up to this pedigree of being a top game for the playstation. Gameplay The gameplay is very good, the game is very free flowing, and allows you to perform 100s of different tricks and combos using manuals to bump up your score and keep your combo going. The game has no lag and runs very smoothly as with all other Tony Hawks games.
