This review is from: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (PS2) (Video Game)
This game, for me, is the first landmark title for the PS2, we have been waiting for so long for a real quality game to come from the PS2, and now its come.
The games graphics are exellent, with a definate improvment on the PS1, dreamcast or N64 Versions of Older Tony Hawk Titles.The graphics are super crisp, with the attention to detail exellent.
One major difference in this version is the revert.You can just press R2 to revert at the end of tricks to combine them together, making more points, manual up the half pipe, and bobs your uncle, 500,000 points with a bit of training.
All the worlds best skaters are included again, with the notable inclusion of MTV Jackass star 'Bam Margera' he may suck on this game, but its pretty fun to play as him, his special move is called 'the jackass', where he goes up and headbutts the board.There are some cool cheats aswell, like, darth maul from star wars, or wolverine from X-Men. Darth maul even skates with a lightsaber!
The levels are fantastic too, with massive free roaming levels to test your tricks on, or try out the fantastic career mode.
Overall, i would call this game 'my fave of 2001', so you heard me, GO OUT AND BUY IT!
