Activision Disses Women - Shame on you, Tony Hawk!
6 March 2009
Summary: This game really offers nothing more than other skating games in this genre but it does offer less. Where Activision fails to deliver is including options in the create a character mode to play as a female. It's not as if someone would expect the exclusion of women from this sports title as they would in Madden or NHL. This is a professional sport that recognizes the female competitor so why leave her out?
Summary: Lets start off with if you're a major Tony Hawk fan then you will most likely like this game.Now if your anything like me and found playing any TH after number 3 to just get way out of hand and no longer fun then you will hate this game.I find the controls to be too much for what this game asks.It seems you would have to put so much time into just trying to figure out how to perfect your tricks rather than actually play the game.I found some of the goals to be just way...
Summary: I have played and completed every Tony Hawk game, and I think I finally put away my skateboard and have moved on. There is nothing new in this game that you've never seen. The graphics are great, sure, but the gameplay gets boring quick and there isn't much incentive to play through this one unless you have some sick syndrome like me where you need every achievement point possible. Rental at best, it can be beat in 5 days if you burn through it.
Summary: This game is fun at first, the graphics are really nice.After a while along with loads of frustrations and ridiculous missions and objectives this game loses its luster. Its really unrealistic for example, doing skateboard tricks while jumping out of an airplane. Also the slow-mo thing is really annoying especially for people who don't like to use the D-pad and prefer to use the Analog.
Summary: because american wasteland had no load time they must have thrown the load time to this game. when your in free mode it takes 7 seconds to load the next player on the list...... n64 was faster......
Summary: Frankly, I was greatly disappointed. Sure, the gameplay itself is the same, and I had no problem running up big combos, etc. But the game has, like the last 3 or 4 games before it, gone down the "let's put in lame jokes and stupid tasks" route. Give me a tough line, not some joke task that 8 year olds think is hilarious. I don't want a Jackass game, I want a Tony Hawk game.
Summary: Very disappointed with this game. As a skater i was impressed with the overall styles captured from the various tricks, but this is no "next gen" game...the amount of options available to customize your skater is puzzling....how is that THPS II had more options??? The graphics are horrible, the start screen even looks low budget, the highlight of this game is the new nail the trick mode which actually makes the gameplay more challenging/ realistic but alas this does not...
Summary: This would be a great game, but when you enter different areas, there is a slight lag, this is annoying when you are doing a long combo. These areas are very small, the developers obviously didn't spend as much time on it as other games. We know the 360 can handle much more; don't buy this game, but I do recommend other games in the series such as Proving Ground (on the Wii) and American Wasteland (on PC)
Conclusion: The game is of course a high-grade version of Tony Hawk - containing no loading times between levels, and high-detail graphics. Unfortunately, the game is DOGGED by flaws, so common that I can't even play the game for more than an hour at any one time.
