Tony Hawk's Underground 2: Remix is a fab game, delivering the original THUG2 that was released on the PS2, along with plenty of extra features to make it more than just a lazy port. It's a testament to the developers that this is such a good game, and in some ways, is even better than the original.
The game has you assuming the mantle of a no-namer skater, who then has to perform numerous tasks and missions related to the likes of Bam Margera and Tony Hawk. However, the best feature that this game has that the PS2 one lacks is the original mode from the first three games, where you can spend a given interval of time just skating around and performing smaller tasks. Gameplay-wise, the only single issue is that the PSP's dodgy controls make it a bit more awkward to pull off tricks and move about in general than you might be used to, but then you'll acclimate to this fairly quickly.
Visually, this game measures up very well against the PS2 counterpart; the character models and environments look just as great, and the frame-rate stays consistent throughout. Aurally, the series has always fared well, and here it absolutely does; there's tonnes of rock and punk music which keeps you pumped up during the missions. It would have been nice to be able to import songs given the PSP's design for that, but it's not a huge gripe.
This is one of the rare PSP ports that totally justifies its existence given the wealth of new Margera-related material. If you loved THUG2 and own a PSP, it's worth grabbing this version.
Tony Hawks Underground 2 (remix) is the psp version of the popular game from Activision. As soon as you start playing you'll recognise the classic Tony Hawks feel as you skate around various levels completing the insane and often funny goals. The story starts with you as an up and coming pro skater, who is kidnapped by Tony Hawk and Bam Margera to compete in a new round the globe skate fest, dubbed The World Destructon Tour.
The graphics of the game are extremely good for a hand held console, making full use of the psp's powerful graphics capability. It looks almost exactly like the Playstation 2 version of the game and plays very well, with almost no slowdown in framerate. The only disadvantages here are that there are a few glitches sometimes, such as falling over with half your body through a wall, but they generally don't affect the overall game experience.
The amount of tricks available is staggering, with everything from kickflips to 360 melon grabs, meaning no combo will ever be the same. The game can be played over the WLAN connection on the psp, but only with other psp owners who have the game. As an alternative, you can play the Horse game mode, passing it round taking turns to set the high score. If you don't beat the set high score, you get a letter. The first person to spell Horse loses.
The game is named remix because it is the psp port of the game and contains four new levels. There is an interesting create mode, where you can create your own tricks by mixing different existing trick animations and slowing them down, speeding them up or mixing them with other tricks. This adds an extra dimension to the gameplay. There is a classic mode, which is reminiscent of the older Tony Hawks games, completing a set amount of goals in a time limit.
If you want a great fun blast on the move and love the Tony Hawks series or skating games in general, then this is the game for you.
Tony Hawks underground 2 : remix is just one in the line of many great tony hawks games as everyone knows.
T H U G 2 : remix is the port of the sony playstation 2 game T H U G 2 : world destruction tour.
The T H U G 2 story line follows on from the first tony hawks underground game - - you are now a pro skater in the mist of stardom and fame as you get kidknaped by Tony Hawks and Bam Margera to participate in the world destruction tour.
You skate you way round levels collecting items and completing goals to progress. There are plenty of levels to explore including added levels from previuos games in the tony hawks series and also 2 new levels exclusively for the P S P game, including Vegas.
My opinion is that this is the best game in the tony hawks games, for both PS2 and PSP.
