Tony Hawk’s Project 8 Xbox 360 Review
30 May 2010
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...
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.

The voice-over work is okay for the most part,
but the music rocks to give you that boost of
Excerpt: The last time I played a Tony Hawk title I swore the series off. It veered off on a tangent that really didn't fit with the type of game that was fun to play, but that was THUG2 and times have changed.
Excerpt: As far as game modes go, we've seriously got nothing new this time around. Online multiplayer, the split-screen action I'm sure we all have fond memories of, Free Skate, Career Mode, it's all here.
