Tony Hawk's Project 8
2 June 2012
Excerpt: With the launch of Microsoft’s next-gen console, the first console version of a Tony Hawk game was a fact… Unfortunately this wasn’t such an innovating (let alone good) game. After all, Tony Hawk: American Wasteland was developed mainly for older consoles like the PS2 and Xbox.

Conclusion: Overall, Project 8 is an incredibly diverse, challenging and accomplished skating romp that should appeal to fans and newcomers alike; lets face it, it enticed me, a relative newcomer to the series.
Conclusion: Tony Hawk's Project 8 did a solid job
