Bad

many problems

first of all, game control is horrible, the camera angles are way off, and the slow motion is just ignorant. now to what really made me mad, after about 1 hour of continuous play ,the pause and all challenges become disabled. almost like a free skate, but with all the people still there,with no interaction . tony has nothing to be proud about.

Weak

Not my trick to flip

Yeah I know, Title for this review sounds really bad, but who cares. This is badly handled. Other than having a lot more movies and clips, and a lot more dialog, it's very bad. The graphics are bad, unless your watching the Intro movies, which is really good. The cell-blocking are obvious for the art. What kind of character dressing are they trying? Character art for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 was better looking. These characters look from a comic book, with poor digital help. I really don't know how this game can be helped other than making it new and scratching it all together. The controls are horrible for Xbox. I'm used to play my Tony Hawk games on game cube or Nintendo 64, which actually had good control. But don't forget the realism, there is none. You can knock over a play, because he's 10 inches shorter than you, given you are on a 2inch higher skateboard. ITS NOT THE CAMERA ANGLE, which should be able to turn 360, but instead can only turn a full 45 degrees. This game is disgusting and the layout is horrible. I cheated just so I wouldn't have to play through the worst scenarios ever. I'm done, its over, this Review is gone. Goodnight and I'm sending the game back. Lucky for me I had a 30-day Trial.

This game is terrible! It stinks so bad when I play this I feel sick! Let me make my point, now I'm a huge Tony Hawk fan. But this game makes me think the people down at working on this game just totally made story in like a day then they put horrible graphics and released it. I know that they payed all of their attention on the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the game. So if ONLY IF you are a HARDCORE Tony Hawk fan and you just have to have it you get it but I'll tell you you'll be disappointed. And if you have an Xbox 360 or a PS3 than GET IT! But not the regular gen console version. The most horrible part is the graphics and the missions you'll have to go throu in order to finish the level. It's not worth it! Don't buy it don't rent it. Just make sure nobody gets it! I wouldn't even give this to my worst enemy! I would only give this to my garbage disposal so it can drill the disk into a million pieces. This game is like a mugging on the subway you avoid it. That is why it got a 1 out of 10.
