Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Expecting your standard Tony Hawk's sequel? Think again. This time the developers have come up with a different slant and have achieved something really significant.

The idea this time round is that you start off on the streets with nothing but your board to keep you company. Start skating around, pulling off tricks and sooner or later you'll be spotted; then you start to make your way up the boarding world. That's easier said than done, of course, with a bigger selection of tricks to learn and pull off. The upshot though is that the game presents a high quality, long-term challenge as you slowly make your way to the top.

Something that doesn't work quite as well is the ability to pick up your board and explore on foot. It's theoretically supposed to make things more flexible, but ultimately accounts for the game's few slower moments. However, ultimately Tony Hawk's Underground works spectacularly well. Its gameplay is sublime, the multi-player modes are dangerously addictive and it scores immensely in the value for money stakes too. Easily one of the most playable games on any console out there, it holds appeal for gamers at all levels of experience. --Simon Brew

5.0 out of 5 stars T.H.U.G. - magnificent. 21 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Tony Hawk's underground - a fantastic game. By now, most people with a PS2 will have played one of the two predecessors on the console (TH 1 & 2 were PS1 games, TH 3 & 4 graced the black box) and will know the fun that the game generates for not entirely obvious reason - if you think about it, a game described as "well, you sort of skate around some cities a bit" sounds rubbish - but it isn't. The tricks are cool, and most importantly, there's a real sense of satisfaction in pulling them off. The game engine is complex yet intuitive - you soon realise that random button bashing doesn't work and quickly get to grips with what does, but only get really good with hours and hours of practice (which is all fun). Then you start trying to show off, fall over, get back up and start all over again...
The new mission structure to the game works well in the main, except for the sneak about missions and the car missions. Okay, it sounds good to be able to nick cars a la GTA and sneak about a la Metal Gear but it's not executed well and frankly I bought the game to skate, so these parts of the game were lulls in the excitement.
The levels are bigger and better than ever before. This is best demonstrated by the bonus levels (in addition to the 7 or so for the main game), some of which are lifted from Tony Hawks 2, and feel empty and restrictive in comparison to the dynamic and trickable environments cooked up for T.H.U.G.
In short, the story mode is good, but the real fun comes after that as you explore the levels and rack up high scores, and play multi-player with your mates. I love it, and I don't even have the online capability that will presumably improve it further for those as do. 5 stars without any doubt - where the series goes from here is anyone's guess, though I hope they ditch the cars...

Massive! Awesome! Cowabunga! Well maybe not the last one, eh? Tony Hawks has been around the Playstation (1 and 2) for about 4 years. It is has been in the top 10 best selling games every years since!
For those who were getting slightly tired of the same Tony Hawks format, prepare for something completely different. Imagine if you will, GTA Vice City with flips and ollies!
T.H.U.G, as it will be nicknamed is all about taking your board to the street. Forget career mode, grinding into the void comes story mode. Travel around the major cities of the U.S and Europe and collect missions of people from the street. You then complete these missions either on your board, on feet or in a stolen vehicle! Out goes the extremely annoying 2 minute timer, featured in the previous Tony's and now you are free to complete missions in your own time whilst smacking people with your board on the way for fun!
It has loads of new features. You can create you own tricks and parks and perhaps the most impressive feature of the game is that you can send in a digital picture of yourself to Neversoft's website and they will create your own skater which you can use in the game!
This WILL be the biggest and best game of 2003. GTA 4 and PES 3 might be coming out later in the year. But this ain't Tony Hawks 5, this is T.H.U.G and it's gonna be massive and with 3 difficulity levels it should also ensure that Tony Hawks veterans are not busting one-million point combos for fun!
It's gonna be Sick (that's street for good!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Tony Hawks: Underground 7 Feb 2004
By W. King
The 3rd Tony Hawks game on PS2. Download your face into the game using network adapter. Get off your board at any time to grab, jump and climb to places which would have been out of reach before. Still cars and drive them around the location. Proper story mode with allies, enimies and many twists. Create your own tricks by combining grabs, flips, spins and specials together. Design and make your own decks to use whenever. Play online using network adapter. Game includes fantastic soundtrack with 75 songs (rock, punk and hiphop) including KISS and Queens Of The Stone Age. Play as 17 pro skaters (not available in story mode) including Tony Hawks and Andrew Reynolds.

Overall, a skatebaording game which goes beyond skateboarding. Easily the best most in-depth extream sports game available to the PS2. A must buy for fans of the genre and for a good multiplayer experience.

Sound: 9/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the series so far!! 26 Dec 2003
By Ollie
T.H.U.G is the best tont hawks so far! The gameplay is as usual brilliant on the tony hawks games and the lifespan of the game is also brilliant. There are a wide selection of different moves you can get and the new caveman mode where you can walk between tricks. T.H.U.G is not also just a skateboarding game but at the same time also a driving game, you can go in dune buggys and cars. T.H.U.G also allows you to walk arond like a pedestrian and climb up ladders and jump up buildings.
The soundtrack for this game is good but not as good as some of the others it contains a variety of rock and hip-hop/rap.
The story mode for this game is probably one of the best i've seen (much better than Smackdown and Tekken story mode) The create mode is fantastic with even more different body parts that you can choose from. The levels for this game are large and varied there is also the hot as hell level (the kiss level) where you can drive the dune buggy (excellent)
This is a certian game that you should have in your collection even if you don't like skateboarding.
