Product Description

Product Description

Expecting your standard Tony Hawks 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 youll be spotted; then you start to make your way up the boarding world. Thats 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 doesnt work quite as well is the ability to pick up your board and explore on foot. Its theoretically supposed to make things more flexible, but ultimately accounts for the games few slower moments. However, ultimately Tony Hawks 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 Do not underestimate this game 14 Dec 2003
I am not a big fan of skating but this may have just changed my mind. Tony Hawks Underground is so damn cool. The minute you start you design your future pro and from there you enter and win comps as well as travelling to nine huge locations which are linked together by great videos which carry an involving plot. You also meet and skate with Chad Muska, bam Margera and of course Tony Hawk. All the missions are collected by talking to people. Plus there are no collect the letters challenges. As well as this you can design and test out your own tricks as well as build huge parks and design your own missions which sadly do have some limits you can also design your very own decks when you turn pro. The multiplayer levels are great including fireball (you launch fireballs at each other from your skateboard). The music on offer isnt great but since you can copy your music onto the Xbox you can then play this music in the game instead of the THUG playlist. The Tricks you pull of link so smoothly together and its very satisfying when you make the croud cheer after using a trick that you designed yourself. The caveman is also very handy way of linking combos together along with manuals and you will end up using it alot. So to summarise the story and multiplayer is great youll want to play them a few times over, the graphics are very impressive. The tricks look great( when you pull them off) and the sound, music and characters conversations are spot on. There are all sorts to unlock and keep you busy. Sadly it only took me a day to complete story mode but there are three different difficulty modes which when completed unlock new characters and various other secrets.

5.0 out of 5 stars The biggest and best Hawk game yet 9 Oct 2003
By Daryl
the first thing I have to say about this game is that it is absolutely massive! Levels are up to twice the size of those in THPS4 and the interactivity with objects is near perfect.
Remember when you first played on THPS3? Remember how big the gap was between that and the psone version? Well, that's how you could measure the gap between 4 and underground. Bring able to make and name your own tricks is also pretty cool and although at first it may sound a little daughnting you will get the hang of it. The character physics have been completely overhauled, making them look almost photo-realistic, I'm not joking!
You really have to see the game in motion before you can judge it for yourself but believe me, you WILL NOT be dissapointed one bit!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game - not great though 12 July 2004
Tony Hawk's Underground (THUG) is an excellent game:
The control system is as sleek and fluid as with other titles in the Tony Hawk's series, and the graphics, while not on a par with other extreme sports titles like 'Amped 2' are still very good.
The game is a new take on the well trodden Pro-Skater path where you don't just go around doing comps, but instead work your way up the world rankings.
However, in the game there are some very annoying bits, like the driving and walking: This ability to get off your board and explore holds the danger of turning THUG into a GTA type game, and is rather pointless.
The game doesn't have much replay value either, since the career mode is very linear, and the normal game modes (including 2player ones) are becoming very old-hat now they've been done 5 times.
The abscence of xbox live is annoying too, and could really have added an extra element to the game.
This game is still great fun though, but hopefully the developers will iron out the bad parts for the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The peak of Tony Hawk's games... 9 Dec 2013
By Robert
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you're a Tony Hawks fan and you haven't played this game then you really need to.

I remember when I first seen the advert. I was about 11ish years old. You could get off the skateboard, I was hooked, I simply had to play this game.

Everything about this game screams Perfection from a TH games point of view. The soundtrack, story, game play & characters were all spot on. They someone managed to create a brilliant villain in a Skateboarding Game!!!

Seriously this game has taken up a massive portion of my childhood and im still loving it to this day. I've had so much practice on this game literally nobody I've met has ever beaten me (and to be fair, im miles away from some of the combos and scores I've seen on this game) this game is easily the peak of Tony Hawk's games. It is fantastic.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This Xbox version of game has one important thing that the PS2 version doesn't: A 60Hz mode. The PS2 version only lets you play in 50Hz and doesn't give you the choice of 60Hz, while in contrast the Xbox and GameCube versions do. Multiplatform games like these make the PS2 an inferior console in the PAL region and made multiplatform games better off to play on Xbox and GameCube rather than on PS2. Even Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and 4 has a 60Hz mode on Xbox and GameCube, but the PS2 versions don't for some reason.

What's so bad about 50Hz? Well it makes the gameplay 17% slower than the way it should be. It's a huge problem for fighting games and racing games. 60Hz is the way it's meant to be played. 60Hz is 60 fps, but 50Hz is 50 fps. Avoid the PS2 version. If you own a TV with a 60Hz signal, get the Xbox or GameCube version.

The game itself is fantastic. It has a great soundtrack, including "The World is Yours" by Nas, and "White Riot" by The Clash. The controls are perfect. You can get off your board for the first time in the series, and go around climbing onto or over things. It's also the first in the series to feature a story in the main single player mode of the game, where you need to create a skater. The way to start missions is the same as THPS4. There are 4 difficulties to choose from. The graphics are great. The replay value isn't very good however, and the game is rather short, unless you play through all 4 difficulties. There's also local multiplayer mode if you want to play against a friend.

Overall, I highly recommend this game. It's my favourite game in the Tony Hawk series.
