How many times am I going to do the same old thing I have done in TONY HAWK since TH1? Obviously, eight. Project 8 is not leaps and bounds above any other Hawk experience. The free skate modes have nothing new to offer (from the last game in the series), and the "career" mode is nothing new either. What IS new is god awful career-mode controls. This game was translated horribly to the psp, and it is very apparant in this mode of play. The free skate is fun, and does warrant the rental - and the graphics are top top top notch, but in a game where controls are so important, PROJECT 8 strikes out.
