Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
7 June 2012
Excerpt: For years now the Tony Hawk games have been dominating skateboard country. Some minimal exceptions not taken into account the successful, but after a while somewhat lazy, series by Neversoft really had nothing or no-one to fear.
Conclusion: My best advice is to start out at american wasteland since it's the easiest in the series and is basically one big tutorial. now the review ^_^ graphics: pretty good and the best in the series a huge overhaul since project 8 IMO, but a lot of grapical glitching and some pop up but overall great.
Excerpt: The Tony Hawk’s series has gone for so long without any solid competition, although this past October saw the release of EA’s well received Skate, and when games are published by the world beating EA it normally means you’ve got some real competition to contend with.
Excerpt: If one run of games is a victim of its own success, it is the Tony Hawk series. When the original was released it repositioned the boundaries of what could be expected from the extreme sports genre.
Excerpt: Billed as the largest and deepest Tony Hawk game yet, Activision has recently released Tony Hawk's Proving Ground for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, Wii and Nintendo DS. Proving Ground is the ninth game in the Tony Hawk series which has seen its share of ups and downs over the years.
Conclusion: once again, the story mode will have a completely déjà vu feel, as it’s the old “young skater trying to make it from the streets and become a skate star” tale seen in similar fashion in earlier Tony Hawk titles (and, yes, even skate . falls into this same old storyline).

It didn’t only attract fans to the video game, but more kids started actually skate boarding. And that says a lot about a game, it was actually so good it made the sport itself more popular.
Summary: Tony Hawk's Proving Ground may not look like much, but this is easily the best version of the game I've played this year. With two completely different story modes (as well as fun online multiplayer), this year's Tony Hawk proves that it is the best portable skateboarding game around.
Excerpt: Nothing satisfies quite like sticking a perfect inverted 540 heelkick-melon to front-side manual. If you have know idea what I just said, fear not. In Tony HawkÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Proving Ground, the latest in the famous line of skateboarding games, it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t important how much skate knowledge you have,...
