Summary: this game is very average. if I could I would give the graohics a -1!!!! or at least a 0. the sound is average, the ganeplay is good but overall there isn't much to say about the game. good or bad.
Summary: I have been playing the Tony Hawk games since THPS 1 and loved it all the way up to THUG... But after the release of THUG they're just going downhill. I rented THUG 2 for the xbox and i felt like i was a clown with all the crazy, impossible stunts i was doing. I got American Wasteland because it was only 18 bucks and i thought it would be more fun on the 360.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a game for easy gamerpoints... i managed to 100% in this in about 6-8 hours... all in one day... its not a good game for longevity but its easy to pick up and use... everything is simple and one easy way of getting 1000 gamerpoints!

Summary: Tony Hawk's skateboarding games are by now a classic style of gameplay. The XBox 360 should have kicked up the graphics to a new level. It didn't quite make it. The game really annoyed me right from the start. You're a country yokel heading off to the bright lights and big city of Los Angeles. Apparently according to this game, LA is the one dream destination of every skater. You get to choose your character from all the "stereotype races" - i.e.
Summary: This is probably my all time favorite Skateboarding game. Graphics are not the best but I just love the adrenaline rush you get from playing this game. No loading screens for a game this old is impressive, and its a shame that most other games don't follow suit. There were a few nearly impossible tricks with some of the missions, but they can be overcome if you have the patience.
Conclusion: Summary: Gameplay - 6/10 - fun skateboarding goodness Story - 7/10 - cool, but kinda short Graphics - 4/10 - not great Soundtrack - 6/10 - not bad Multiplayer - 4/10 - there is better multiplayer games
