This game is the best in the Tony Hawk lineup. If you want a skateboarding game that is great for 1 person great. if you want it for 2 great. the only thing I would change is the limitations on creating a character. But that's nothing compared to the good part of the game.
For 1 the graphics are amazeing!!! The game has a very good plot where you start ranked in the 160's and work your way to be #1. Your do all sorts of missions and other things to build up you skill points and to move your rank up. but the game has one bad thing that i thought would be better then ever and its the creat a skater for your carrer. it is limited as to what you can do with your skater. in the past you can choose your weel color, grip disign, etc. but this year all you can do is change your deck.
This game had a lot of new and innovative features that really set it apart from the rest. the new "bust a trick" mode where you use the analog sticks to control a "super" flip trick is really cool. a lot of other cool features like being able to have a seperate button to do flips and rodeos and not only be able to flip with special moves is really cool too. pretty game, but had a few deficiencies.
