This review is from: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 (PS2) (Video Game)
There was much excitement as i awaited the delivery of the newest version of the award winning Tony Hawks Pro Skater masterpiece. I was a big fan of THPS2 on the PC, and having recently aquired a PS2 it was top of the list. All i can say is this game excels on a previously perfect game!!! The animation is silky smooth with no perceptable hangups, the levels are innovative and the learning curve is just right. One of the major attractions that has made THPS a phenomena is the "pickupability". It's possible to have fun from day 1, no annoying learning of the controls to do basic maneuvers, but months of tweaking to get build up into masive combos. It just feels right. An added bonus was the demo of Sean Palmers Sbnowboarding demo. One playable level, and it looks as though that's going to be huge! All in all a a game which has done the impossible and improved on and already outsanding game. Great levels, great graphics, fantastic tunes from the likes of ALien Ant Farm, Henry Rollins etc, and one of the best games released on the PS2 so far. Gran Turismo 3 just got parked in the garage...
