Very flawed, but enjoyable enough to rent or buy used. Graphics aren't that great, tricks are cool, the environment restrictions are way too strict. Blood looks cool, wipe-outs are entirely fake and cheesy. Pros: Cool tricks, multi-player is enjoyable, blood adds some realism to the game. Quite humorful. Cons: Graphics could be better, crashes are lame, the restrictions for where you can go are lame.
Not amazing, but worth a rent. It is enjoyable enough that you might find yourself liking it. Rip it up!!!!!
This is a great SK8ing game, Activision did a great job by sticking to the fundamentals of this game. There is no real big jumps in gameplay from this to the last game title. As with just about all the previous titles you start off as a local nobody. Before long, your Sk8ing the whole city map in an attempt to make it into Tony's 8 crew project that he has cooked up. The Graphics are on par with next-gen, the game mechanics are very fluid, and the over all experience is very rewarding. The only issue I have with this game is the same problem I see in all Tony Hawk titles, Combos and Tricks are just crazy button mashing, Big Air Combos just require random button combinations to get the biggest score.
Overall this is a great game that should be played atleast once by anybody who digs video games.
