Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland

Xbox Evolved
21 June 2006
  • Summary: THAW may not be that hard no matter which way you cut it, but it is still as addictive as any Tony Hawk titles. You have the story mode and the classic mode to go through, and when you are done with that you can finally play on Xbox Live. The strange thing is, there is something different about this one, like it was a bit rushed, and that doesn’t reward you at all.
  • Pros: Finally have an online mode.
  • Cons: The easiest Tony Hawk title yet.

  • Conclusion: is right up there and definitely headed in a better direction than the way Underground went. There is nothing inherently wrong with the gameplay to keep it from getting a really high score. The trick system is solid, the online play is great, and the single player experience is good enough. The only real problem with the game is that we've simply had too much of Tony Hawk over the years, without a lot of innovation.

  • Excerpt: Tony Hawk's American Wasteland marks the third incarnation of the immensely popular series. Is it a worthy successor to THPS and THUG? Well, do BMX bikes and the French sport of freestyle walking, aka Le Parkour, turn you on? They should. And does a seamless recreation of Los Angeles help? It might. And what about online multiplayer for Xbox owners? It's about time. Veteran skate punk, Jeremy, put thumb to controller to give you this review.
  • Pros: ups: All of the greatness of the series, now with a seamless landscape, online play, co-op Classic Mode, and BMX!
  • Cons: downs: Some performance issues, story shortcomings, and no online park editor.

  • Excerpt: You can tell that Neversoft, the developers of Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland, really like making the games. While other developers seem to get bored with their series and run out of ideas after just the first game, Neversoft keeps chugging along, constantly expanding on the series in every incarnation.

  • Summary: Ich habe Teil 4 geliebt, fand Teil 5 klasse und Teil 6 hat mich ebenfalls absolut überzeugt. Und American Wasteland? Hier ist für mich der Tiefpunkt der Serie erreicht. Die Missionen schaffen es leider nicht, eine Motivation zum Weiterspielen aufzubauen, das BMX-„Feature“ ist ein absoluter Reinfall, die Story flach und hanebüchen… So stelle ich mir keinen Skate-Titel vor, der im Zeichen von Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4 steht!
  • Pros: gute Grafik, sehr gute Soundauswahl, Skaten gut wie eh und je
  • Cons: immens flache Story, motivationslose Aufgaben, BMX!!!, sinnlose Verschlimm-besserungen
