After all the great advertisements from tony hawk and my T.V., I thought I HAD to play American Wasteland to see what it was like. I Had imagined a huge Los Angeles Map much like the first "True crimes" but more focused on skateboarding instead of Gang warfare... I'm not saying the game isn't fun, because it is... I just hate false advertising. For me, averaged sized Tony Hawk Pro Skater levels divided by Long and annoying hallways does not mean an open environment. On the other hand, It's a fun game. There are lots of new tricks, the Tagging is much more fun and better to work with, and the short french man that teaches Parcour(street running) is AWSOME! The story is also very intriguing and you get to meat lots of of cool and funny characters, and unlike all the other games, Customization is actually fun! Overall, It's a great game, but the disappoint one gets after realizing that it was all a lie, kind of ruins it for a while...

This is by far the worst Tony hawk game EVER! The graphics suck, create a charactor is terrible, and they tryed to make it to much like a comic.

SUCKS!

im 14 and i skate. ive been playing tony hawk games since they were on n64. there needs to be all the pro and ams on the game so there is more people to skate with. the ollies are to high and the graphics are still edgy. after grinded like 40 feet the board isnt scratched up yet. i only grinded on my board for like 10 feet and got scratches on it. COME ON THE GAME ISNT A PERFECT 10. it deserves like aaaa uhhhh 7
