“ The 'go to' skateboarding game in its prime, Pro Skater is fun to play, realistic, varied and visually superb. Whilst multiplayer possibilities are endless, there are only 10 levels and no actual computer opponents. „
The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater really is one of the best games of all time in my opinion, it really is a timeless classic in the eyes of many and justifiably. The original Tony Hawk's as I'm sure you now know was the start to the inspirational start of the entire series of games. What I loved most about the original game was that it had a very original concept and also the fact that it was being partly developed by Tony Hawk's himself! No game had ever been anything like this and so it really was very exciting to try out!
The game has an incredible soundtrack featuring tracks such as 'The Ace of Spades' by Motorhead and 'Jerry Was a race car driver' by Primus. As for the controls they were easy to master and it gave way to the possibility to do endless varieties of tricks, which I really did love. The maps are well thought out offering great possibilities to show off your tricks. It is a game that really can be played on for hours and hours and especially considering there is a 2 player mode so that you can play with your friends!I hope this was useful and thank you very much for reading this.
The first in a series of completely new and brilliant gaming types.
You are a skateboarder wanting to turn pro. You have to go through the streets completing missions, earning cash and buying stats points for your skills and your board.
Your money can also help upgrade your board and your stats points.
There are so many different tricks and stunts you can do in this game and combinations of stunts and tricks that flow from one to the next. Anyone who has never played this game before will be able to pick up the basics of handling the skateboarder pretty quickly. Once you have the basics down and start experimenting with all the different tricks and stunts you can do you will find that you improve dramatically.
There are many different game modes you can compete in against your friends including head-to-head trying to gain more points than the other person in a limited time, in game missions to complete, other bonus side-games and more.
There are so many things to discover and uncover you will either never complete the game from getting sidetracked by the multiplayer mode or you just won't find everything without cheating!
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 for PC does not exist. All the reviews are fake. It is only from part 2 upwards that this game was ported to the PC.Further proof that this entry is false: the image shows the box of the Playstation version.
Tony Hawk might be what I'd classify a genuis if he can do the things I can make him do on this game! The game has realistic sound, graphics and the moves are so smooth. At first it is a bit tricky with controls doing all sorts of things to the skater but once you master the arts of grinding or kickflippin' it's great fun. The satisfaction of this game is immense you really feel you've achieved something when you nail a combo. The object of the game is to try and acheive all the objectives (or tapes as they are known.) You also have to enter competitions and acheive a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal to progress. Don't worry if you aren't able to do absolutely everything you can miss a couple of tapes and still get on. There are a number of skaters to choose from and you can improve their skills by acheiving the objectives. The courses are varied and give the real feel of being in a normal street or school or warehouse, etc. Once you've completed all the levels with a skater you get a cool vid to watch and you can do it all over again with a different skater, believe me it's harder with any of the other characters that aren't Tony. Before playing this game I had never skated in my life, The thing is I still couldn't but I can appreciate that it's one hell of a hard thing to do and it looks ace!! It's a highly addictive game and for any novices or never-trieds out there this game is for you. However for any real pro skaters out there you shouldn't be playing a game about it you should be doing it yourslef!!! Tip: When grinding try to jump and grind when landed again as it doubles your points!!!
Tony hawks pro skater is fantastic skateboarding games for the P.S. Any skateboarding lovers will surely love this game it features Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, Kareen Campbell, Rune Glifberg (my favourite), Bucky Lasek, Chad Muska, Andrew Reynolds, Geoff Rowley, Elissa Steamer and finally Jamie Thomas. All of these are very famous skateboarders. There are different modes of game play such as career mode where you earn more points to open the next level and there are allot of levels theres Warehouse,School, Mall,Skate park, Downtown Minneapolis, Downhill Jam,Burnside and the streets of San Francisco. There are many other modes of game play like free skate where you have as much time as you like to improve your tricks, and theres single session where you have 2 mins to get as many points as you can. I would recommend this game to any skateboarders or any else whos interested.
Tony Hawk is the only name worth knowing in skateboarding. THPS finally puts an end to the trend of repetitive and boring extreme games. You just don't skate around and do tricks; you battle against friends, discover new moves, explore huge envirnoments, and find lots of hidden goodies. The game offers 4 modes of play, which includes a challenging career mode and 2-player modes. The career mode is divided into competitions and courses. First you pick your character (9 to choose from, and 2 are hidden), then your board, turning configuration, and the color of your wheels (why, I dont know!!). Most levels have multiple objectives. These objectives consist of you beating top scores, collecting letters, destroying a certain amount of objects, and finding special hidden videotapes. Accomplishing these tasks will increase your stats, allow you to pick different boards, and unlock other levels. Every few levels you must put your skills to the test and participate in a competition. Six judges will score your performance on variety, difficulty, and points will be deducted for falls. The 2 best runs (out of 3) will be your final score and you must be in top three, in order to advance further in the game. There are 3 competitions in all, and receiving all gold medals will reward you with a cool video of your skater. The 2-player mode contains three ways to play: graffiti, trick attack, and horse. All of these modes provide hours of fun with a buddy. The level design in THPS is incredible. Authentic locations include a school, mall, skate parks, and even streets of famous cities like San Francisco. Obstacles are also a major factor in THPS, here’s just a list of some: ramps, rails, cars, stairs, swimming pools, benches, little ponds, and fountains. Almost anything can be grinded on, and most of the pools and ramps provide huge air to perform some amazing combos. There’s even an area where you can jump from one rooftop to another! The control in THPS is dead on. The three basic forms of moves are grinding, hand grabs, and feet tricks, and all are easy to perform. There are also ollies and fastplants that can be easily done too. The signatures moves require you to press a combination of buttons but nothing to tedious. The dual shock controller works well with the game but the analog joystick is hard to use in order to pull off certain tricks. The graphics are some of the best you’ll see on the Playstation. The levels are huge and very detailed. The skaters are well dressed and each one has their own boards and sponsors. The videos of the skaters look good, yet they seem too short. Overall the game runs pretty smooth and there is practically no slowdown. The soundtrack is cool; punk rock and alternative music works well with the skateboarding theme. The songs will get stuck in your head for months and mostly ever track is hearable. The sound effects are beyond perfect. There are different noises for skating on different surfaces. The grinds, moans, and environment noises all sound real. Neversoft has done a great job in this department. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater offers more than just pretty graphics and famous professional skaters. The gameplay and level design is very original and entertaining. The control is perfect and the sound will blow you away. Skilled gamers will have a tough time mastering THPS while new comers will have no time getting into it. This is clearly THE best skateboarding game ever to be released on any system.

Tony Hawks is a fantastically vast game in which the player chooses a professional skater (out of many) and develops his/her skills to win medals at competitions and throughout levels. The game also provides multiplayer, a BMX demo and freeskate mode. Very Cool! Beware, this game is Highly addictive!!! The levels are real places but not all the tricks you achieve the pro's can achieve. Thank you for your time, this game is great for Skaters and gives non skaters a good insight to what its about.

Tony Hawk now has another reason to incite the tempers of all the player haters out there. Aside from landing his first 900º, he has just put his good name on what could be one of the finest PlayStation games in history…or at least this year anyway. This game is simply phenomenal, from its representation of the sport, to its incredible gameplay, all the way down to the brilliant sound effects. Although Tony Hawk's Pro Skater could be considered too niche a title to some, I think even those kids who used to call me skate punk in high school will take breaks from Madden 2000 to play it. So what's so good about Pro Skater that is going to interest the non-skaters of the world? Well in either a stroke of wisdom or waffle Neversoft has decided to make this game more of an arcade style player than a sim. While at first this seems in danger of both alienating its core audience and becoming too watery for the every-man, Neversoft made this game so fun that I doubt anyone will complain. The way the game plays is a strange but brilliant amalgamation of 1080º Snowboarding and Super Mario. You wander about one of ten levels trying to pick up certain items, beat certain scores, and vandalize certain pieces of public property before you are allowed to access the next level. In an added twist after you clear three levels you are invited to enter a skate competition. Competitions will take place in brand new skate spots and are judged in three timed heats. You must place in the top three riding against nine other pros randomly played by the computer. After you complete a contest heat you get to watch a cool replay of your run ala Gran Turismo. It's this mix up in game play that offers so much in the way of replayability. The game's pace is so well done that it just never gets old no matter how long you play it, within reason of course. Each one of the level's goals is challenging at first but once the game is mastered you can probably complete al
l of them in a single run. All in all it's a learning curve that will be a joy for just about anyone to overcome. Now let me give a little bit of an idea how each level is laid out and how the point structure works. Levels range from simple skate parks to strange secret government research facilities complete with steel ramps, long ledges, and captive (but friendly) alien visitors. All levels , including the contests, are nonlinear and pretty much every polygon can be launched or grinded upon. There are also gaps between objects or lengths of rail that can be cleared or grinded to gain bonuses in the game. Combination tricks also net big bonuses. Should you do, say a seven-part combo over one of these gaps, you will be awarded with so many points it's just plain silly. An unconfirmed rumor I heard made mention of someone getting over 100,000 points for one trick. To put that into perspective my highest scoring trick was only 15,000 and I've been playing religiously for two weeks. But what has to be one of the finer aspects of the game is that tricks score fewer points the more you do them. Now you must not only land a fresh trick to net points, you must also be creative in how you perform your run. Pro Skater actually recognizes repeated moves and gives lower scores for lack of variety. For those of you riders out there this comes as a welcome change from the spin to win point formula so common in boarding games, seven 1080º's in a row woooo ha! Yeah right. Another tasty little treat that's sure to excite all the skaters out there is that in this game you can assume the roll of real professional riders. There are ten pro riders represented in this game including Hawk himself. Each one of the riders has their own unique attributes that make them better suited for different types of terrain. Bob Burnquist the Brazilian superstar and X-Games hopeful is a vert rider through and through. He has mad spinning ability and can catch a
hefty amount of air. Jamie Thomas is the hoody, steel toothed roughneck street skater that can stick a 50/50 for about a mile; in other words he's got good balance. Being a long time rider myself I applaud the addition of real life riders, it made me think Activision and Neversoft really care about skateboarding and were committed to making this title as hype as possible regardless of overhead. The end result is a cast of characters that brings some much needed real world appeal to an otherwise unrealistic title. There is no tramp with hot pants skating in high heels here; instead you get Ellisa Steamer. I realize I haven't brought up one bad thing about this title yet but I assure that this is indeed a review and not a preview. This game is just so good it's hard to nit pick or fault. In fact my biggest complaint about the game is that I think the soundtrack is kinda corny. With the exception of the intro sequence the majority of tracks consist of some ultra whack new school ska bands that had me running to the options menu in no time. Well at least you can turn the music off. Now I'm sure I've insulted some folks just now but in a way that's my point. Some of you are going to love the sound track and think it's the cat's pajamas, hey more power to ya. Thankfully the sound effects make up for any personal gripes about the tuneage, to turn those off would be a shame indeed. You see each surface in the game has its own texture, which comes through both in force feedback and sound. Ride a wall and you can hear your wheels rubbing, ride some bricks and you hear each crack, ride the steel ramps on the final level and you're in for some really cool ear candy. Aside from that there's a fair bit of ambiance in the background. Most notable is on the San Francisco level where you can hear the radio chatter from the pi...um, cops. They say some funny stuff too like "car 54 were are you." They also say some cryptic th
ings. Take for instance the phrase, "Car 69 there's a rock star down in your area," hmmmm I wonder what that could mean? Maybe I should call Activision's PR department. OK so this is the last paragraph of nice things that I'm going to say about this title because I'm getting psyched, and judging by my watch it's half past Tony Hawk o'clock. So here goes, this games graphics are so good it's stupid. This could almost be a Dreamcast title they're so good. High-res, bright textures everywhere, skater models that look like their real life counter parts, and bells and whistles out the whazoo. I think there may even be a PlayStation first in this game; if any of you have played 1080º then you might remember the Jumbotron in the back that plays footage of the game engine. Well Pro Skater's Jumbotron plays real movies. You can see the aforementioned ska bands skulking around on the movie screens in the background. Personally I've never seen this technique used before but somehow I think I'm going to be seeing it again. I could most certainly go on and on about this title. I could tell you about the super fun two-player mode, that each skater has their own video ending, or that getting hit by a car is still funny after it happens about 1,000 times. But I think it's best if you explore the finer points of this game on your own. There's really no need for me to do any more PR for Activision that's for damn sure. So if you ride a skateboard, snowboard, surfboard, or (gulp) Rollerblades, go out and buy this title now. If you lumberjack, shuffleboard, or crochet you may want to give this title a rent first. It is a niche title but I have a feeling that everyone is going to enjoy it just as much as I did regardless of sport preference. Much respect Tony, much respect Neversoft If you have the money do yourself a favour and buy it now!
Tony Hawk, famous for his 720 move (a mid-air 360-degree somersault done twice), is widely credited as being one of the best skateboarders in the world. Hawk lends his technical advice and character likeness to this nine-level title. While it is cool to play as Hawk, would-be skate pros can also choose to play as one of eight other skaters. Each character has a different riding style and at least three unique tricks to master. Solo players will skate to win the world championship, with over 100 moves available to score points, including slides, grinds, and landing tricks. A split screen allows players to compete against each other. During this head-to-head mode, you can score style points, race between obstacles, or play tag. If you opt for graffiti mode, both players compete against each other by "tagging" objects while performing their tricks. A replay mode is available for players to view highlights at the end of a game. The level design is enormous, with 10 interactive courses, including skate and pool parks, half pipes, and a downtown area. Each skating environment is filled with secret places, shortcuts, and obstacles. Once you get the moves down, you can perform a trick off of just about any object that you see. Tony Hawk is not the only star in this game--the music stands strong on its own. Cool cuts come from Primus and the Dead Kennedys--which can be inspiring during the frantic onscreen action. While game control is relatively solid, there are some minor problems in tight areas. This title is so large it is overwhelming, given the enormity of levels and available moves. However, persistent skate pros will master this game with a little practice. (Fortunately, there is a practice mode to scrape your knees on.)
This is probably the best game I have played on for a long time. The idea of the game is to collect tapes for doing various things. For example getting a high score or finding them hidden in hard to get to places. Also there are things like smash 5 objects hidden around the level. There are ten characters to choose from including Tony Hawk. Each character has around 8 boards to choose from but these need to be unlocked by earning tapes. The game is split into 9 levels: Woodland Hills: The first level and easy at that. All the tapes should be collected without any trouble at all. School Miami: Slightly harder but still not to hard. Put in a bit of effort and again all the tapes should be collected. Mall New York: This level is slightly different. It has a start and a finish. On the way to the finish you have to collect the tapes in various ways. Skate Park: This is very different. Don’t let this frighten you but it’s a competition. You have three rounds all lasting one minute. Your best two rounds count and you have to end up first, second or (as I did) third. Downtown Minneapolis: Back to the usual levels but again harder. You should be able to pick up a lot of the tapes if not all. This is set on roads with cars to knock you over (how annoying). Downhill Jam: Again a level with a start and a finish but much harder. I have tried and tried and only have one tape to go. Burnside: Another (yes another) competition. This time it is very hard. I have not reached any higher than about sixth place. Streets San Francisco: I have not yet got onto this level but will let you know when I do. Unknown: A bit of a surprise really. I’ll tell you all about it when I get there. This is the last level on the game that I know. The boards on the game are very adjustable. You can have different designs on the bottom of the deck, different c
oloured wheels…. Or even have the steering adjusted to medium loose or stiff. If you haven’t already got this game I suggest you buy it straight away.
Tony hawks pro skater is not very realistic because no one would ever be able to go that high off a ramp, even without cheats to go higher they still go too high, I dont like it when a game is too easy, especialy sports games like skating or football. the 900 has only been done about twice by tony hawk him self but you can land it with about a 70% chance on tony hawk pro skater. kick flip is a really really hard trick to land on a skate board but is the easiest trick to do on tony hawk pro skater, and you also get the least amount of points for doing that trick. I like the fact that all of the skaters are the real skaters and not just made up skaters, and the skate boards are real as well, you can gat world industries boards and zero or hawk. and on tony hawk pro skater 2 you can create your own skate park and skater. i usualy create my self as a skater. i like putting half pipes all over my skate park and i usually make a circuit with a grinding rail so i cand grind right the way around it with the perfect balance cheat on. i like the two player games on it as well, like tag or graphite. or just trick atack is sometimes fun. horse is what i usually play with my friends, and i put something like your a girl instead of horse.
This game is a revolution in gaming fun. It has got 9 wicked levels which include 3 contests where you have 3 rounds to score as many points as you can and you get judged. There are 10 skateboarders to choose from - Burnquist, Campbell, Glifberg, Hawk, Lasek, Muska, Reynolds, Rowley, Streamer and Thomas. Each player has different skills like balence and speed etc... Also, with each player you can choose from a range of board designs which you unlock by getting the level tapes. Details include changing the colour of the board's wheels and the loseness of the trucks to give more turing angle. Some of the levels include a warehouse, which is my favourite even though it is the smallest. This level is packed with little jumps and because it is small, it is very easy to score good points. One of the things that amazes me about this game is that I have never got bored of it like I do with every other game i've got or have ever played on. It is great fun completing the game with all of the players, getting every single tape on the game and scoring a gold medal on every contest. ONce you have completed the game with a player you are awarded an extra player - Officer Dick. Unfortunately there are not any extra levels. Every time you comlete the game with a player, you unlock his or her Cinematic which is a video of the real player doing tricks. I would recomend this game to anyone who is interested in Skateboarding, Gaming etc.. and also people who are not. One of the best games I've ever played.
This game was much better than I thought it would be. The game play is brilliant and very addictive. The different levels are also very addictive but only because they are hard and vary so much. If the sequel didn’t come out so soon it would probably still be in the playstation charts. The levels are realistic and the characters and the moves they do are all based on real moves. They pull off these moves in really unrealistic ways though. They spend about ten minutes in the air and spin around 1080 degrees. You can spin flip and grab into loads of levels. It supplies you with something to do for ages if nothing else. The aim is to try and get as many points as possible on each level. You get points by performing tricks. There are also objectives to do on each of the levels such as score 10,000 points to get 1 tape. There are 5 tapes on each level and the more tapes you have the more levels and characters you unlock. Some may find this kind of game boring. I thought it wasn’t going to be very good at first because I didn’t like skateboarding too much. After many gaming hours I love it and whenever I’m at the local Skate Park I can talk the talk. This is a game to play if you haven’t already.
