Summary: Tony Hawk Underground Produced by: Neversoft, advantage Date released: 2004 Price: $19.99 Reviewed by: Tyler Colyer Do you like video games? What kind? If you said any thing about skateboarding this game is definitely for you. First off I would say that the graphics are awesome. You can really tell one person from another person. The graphics make the game play a lot better because you can see how the tricks are different and the motions to the trick.
Best thing to happen to a Hawk game since... Hawk!

Summary: When you first boot this game up, it seems like it will be just another one of the near-identical-yet-somehow-great-every-time Tony Hawk games. But if you delve deeper than the main menu (which you undoubtedly will),you will find many significant upgrades to the definitly-getting-old Tony Hawk series.
Summary: This game when you first start it is awsome how your guy works with the story moded is awsome. But after 4 times playing the entire story it gets boring. But still it is an awsome game while it lasts!
Summary: Tony Hawk's Underground is in my opinion, the very best Tony Hawk game so far! Gameplay - You can start off as a pre-made skater such as Tony Hawk himself, Bob Burnquist and others.. or you can use the famous Create-A-Skater mode. I always loved using the create-a-skater mode to make my totally awesome skater that looked just the way I wanted. You can costumize anything about the skater including tatoos, height, and weight.
Summary: Note that this review is geared toward previous Tony Hawk 3 and 4 players. THUG is another addition to the Tony Hawk series, and focuses on a story line instead of the more open ended goal-orientated features of previous games. You can only use your Create a Skater in this game, but he eventually becomes functionally equivalent to any of the Pros in other TH games.
Summary: In order to keep the series from running out of steam, Activision decided add a "story mode" to the game. You start out as an unknown everyday skater who dreams of turning pro. There are plenty of "story scenes", starring you as the main character. As you progress through the game, new levels open up, and the drama of becoming a pro skater unfolds before you. All of this is a little bit cheesy, but nevertheless makes for an entertaining game to play.
This game was one of the best games I have ever played

Summary: In Tony Hawk Underground(which I will be calling thug) is a really cool game. I got the game the first day it came out and I loved the new feature where you could get off of your board and run around where ever you want to go. I also loved the storyline in other Tony Hawk versions you would just go into levels having fun, but having no meaning to what you are doing. In thug you can also drive cars. This feature is really cool.
Summary: Don't get me wrong - this is a good game. I just think some of the "ground-breaking" elements it's supposed to contain aren't really that ground-breaking. In Underground you are to progress through a story mode by which you start with nothing and end up as king of the skating world, all the while battling your once-friend-turned-enemy Eric. Throughout the story you complete several goals and missions to progress on to the next level.
