Excerpt: Reengineered from the ground up for Sony and Microsoft’s next-generation consoles, Tony Hawk’s Project 8™ immerses players in the definitive skateboarding experience using ultra-realistic graphics, enhanced physics and extremely responsive controls that simulate the feeling of skating with every trick and bail.
Excerpt: How long can such a series last? Well as the Tony Hawk’s series enters its eighth incarnation, the answer is simple, and that’s a very long time. Neversoft and Activision will keep pumping additions to the series out until sales rapidly decline, although to expect another eight releases from the series isn‘t particularly appealing, somehow this sequel still manages to bring some freshness to the enduring franchise.
Conclusion: Overall impressions of THPS Project 8 are that if you own a PS2, don't own this game, because it will only let you down. Shaba had a lot to compete with when going up against Neversoft's previously created franchise. The soul of THPS games are noticeably absent in the PS2 version. Sure one can still use classic characters like Rodney Mullen, Mike Vallely, Bob Burnquist, Daewon Song, Stevie Williams, Tony Hawk, and a few others, but the "stuff' that every good game must...
Conclusion: Tony Hawk's Project 8 did a solid job
synthesizing the sound effects for taking off of
the ramp and accurately depicting the grinds.
The voice-over work is okay for the most part,
but the music rocks to give you that boost of
adrenaline momentum. Overall, Tony Hawk’s
Project 8 delivers a solid skateboarding
experience despite its rocky multiplayer
Excerpt: For a time, it seemed like the old glory days of the Tony Hawk series were long gone. Tony Hawk's American Wasteland and Tony Hawk's Underground 1 and 2 were more focused on Jackass-style pranks, pushing morons like Bam Margera to the front, letting the skateboarding fall by the wayside. They got the fundamentals right, but they didn't give us the improvements we wanted to see in the series.
Conclusion: Great game to say the least. Outstanding presentation, easy to learn controls, some beautiful visuals and not to mention a well made list of achievements, this game will keep you staring at your TV for hours on end. Very impressed with the NeverSoft staff and can't wait for Proving Grounds!
Conclusion: All in all there was some solid songs but I didnt like the Hip-Hop songs lots. But this game has a solid soundtrack Overall 7/10 With all that said this game is good but some of the glitches and story goals and acheivements(like the get to #1 rank is very frustrating) but this is a fun game none of the less. If your a die-hard Tony Hawk fan get this.
