Summary: Well I recently picked up this game recently thinking it would be like the old tony hawk games (THUG, THUG2, THAW.) and I was horribly mistaken. They changed EVERYTHING about Tony Hawk games in this one, the create a Skater is the most number one thing I hated the most. Your character type (Punk, Urban, Kid, Female, Some other one) depends on the cloths you get to wear. Really Never soft? And that's not all, the game play is horrible.
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)
Tony Hawk's Project 8 (Xbox 360): Tony Hawk: Same as the last one only slightly updated
5 April 2009
Summary: Tony Hawks project 8 is a good skateboard although; for the most part it is exactly the as its predesosers only with better graphics. The controls are typical and the same as previous games but this time for each challenge you do there are three levels that you can complete it at: easy, hard or sick, each with their own specific stipulations for completion.
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.
