Conclusion: The multiplayer options also offer a lot of fun. The first multiplayer mode is "Horse", where 2 to 4 players can play on the same PSP unit. Each player gets a chance to do a single combo and the resulting score from the first player sets the bar. The subsequent players try to do as good or better. If you fall below the bar, you get a letter. Last person standing wins! The other multiplayer modes require multiple PSP (supports up to 4) units connected via WiFi.
Excerpt: Sprite Remix, Neptunes remix, Tony Hawk remix? Is anyone happy with originality these days? I'll admit, I was once a Tony Hawk addict. I will never forget when the demo for the first tony hawk came out for the playstation one, as it was one of those pinnacle moments when you knew that there was something in store for the future of the game. I spent hours upon hours mastering that one level demo, and never getting sick of the monotony.
Excerpt: I’ve played every Tony Hawk Pro Skater game.

Excerpt: Shaba Games, the team behind Wakeboarding Unleashed and several ports of the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series, have taken Tony Hawk's Underground 2 and given it a few extras that simply blow the top off of the PlayStation Portable. Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix pushes all of the early performance expectations of the PSP and is one of the most valuable titles on the console in its early life.
Excerpt: Upon first play, you'll instantly note that THUG2 Remix looks a lot like its console cousins. Nothing about the stages has been cut out, scaled down, or severely changed. That is of course, when you first take a look at the game. Take a closer look and you'll notice that from a technical point, this port is pretty darn rushed.
Summary: On the home consoles, Activision’s outrageous Tony Hawk games have hooked millions of players with their sublimely simple controls and ferociously addictive action.
