Product Description

Product Description

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is the sequel to the best-selling and highly acclaimed Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. The original title sported easy controls, solid gameplay mechanics and awesome visuals. These elements remain, while the designers spent their time adding hundreds of new tricks, slightly tweaking the core gameplay, and creating both a character and a 3-D skate park editor. Players can create the skate park of their dreams, choosing a theme and placing steps, ramps, half-pipes, pools and rails to create the run of their dreams. After completing the finishing touches, you can put your park on the Internet for all to admire. Then, you can create your own character to skate your custom park. Name, age, height, weight, style, stance, trick set and skateboard can all be personalised.

Alternatively, players can choose a character from a number of professional skaters, including Tony Hawk, Chad Muska, Kareem Campbell, Andrew Reynolds and Jamie Thomas. Skaters will gain more skills as you progress. There are several skate parks to choose from, including Marseilles, Manhattan and Skate Street Ventura. In the core game, players perform tricks to gain money to purchase new skating abilities, tricks or boards. Another mode is free skating, plus there are several multiplayer scenarios. One is an eight-person judged competition, while another is HORSE (feel free to choose any letters you'd like). Other modes are tag, trick-attack and graffiti.

Amazon.co.uk Review

When you are creating the sequel to what many felt was 1999's game of the year, there is a lot of pressure to outdo your past glory. The guys at Neversoft, makers of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, appear up for the challenge, although much of this title has yet to be unveiled.

For starters, people who have mastered Tony Hawk's Pro Skater will be able to take their skills to a new level. A new trick called a manual allows players to balance on the forward or rear trucks of the skateboard. Manuals bridge other already-established moves and combos, making it possible to rack bigger scores than ever before and therefore adding a whole new level of challenge for veteran players.

In the original game, an open space between rails, bowls, cars, or ramps provided a small breather and a chance to survey your surroundings. This time you will be encouraged to manual between such spots, thereby increasing your point total. But the manual isn't an automatic movement; it requires balance and dexterity. Therefore, you'll have less time to take in your next opportunity and will be much more likely to miss it the first time through.

Overall, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 serves up extra helpings of some very nice goodies. Better characters, and more of them: The original models look sick compared to the larger skaters and better textures of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2. There are also new playable characters: Steve Caballero, Eric Koston, and Rodney Mullen have been added to the cast.

More tricks to play with such as Lip tricks now include awesome new handplants, rock 'n' rolls, and stalls. As it should be in a game (and sport) that has more and more "star power", signature riders now have more of their signature moves. Add in the aforementioned manual and you've pretty much got it all.

More locations with new scenes are carved out of New York, the Skatestreet in Ventura, California, as well as updated locales in Miami and Philadelphia. There is a total of eight--all big, all bold. And you are not even tied down to the good ol' US of A. What would you say to grinding through the streets of France?

There is more music including Anthrax's version of Public Enemy's Bring the Noise, but Activision's efforts don't end there. Even with all the goods this game has, it would be a supreme letdown to freeze out the top music tracks.

The park creator is back in the new game, and Neversoft has also added a create-a-player feature so you can enhance the existing pros, turning them into new skaters. Also, a new customisation system lets you skate to earn enough money for new duds and accessories. Features like this, added to what returns from last year, make Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 a must-have for anybody on the planet. --Todd Mowatt

Tony Hawks 2 is the best game of the series. The music was excellent the levels were fun and original,the graphics were good for their time, there is nothing in the game that i dont like. I think THPS underground games have ruined the series slightly, now being able to get off your board and play tennis i mean WTF?, and the new one coming out 'Wasteland' you can ride BMX, i believe the game is called Tony Hawk's, since when did Tony Hawk ride BMX. I reckon Neversoft need to concentrate their ideas on the skateboarding side of things more (since thats what the game is mainly based on) instead of adding these lame additional games etc.The first and second were undoubtably the best.

The game is extremly good. In my opinion the best of the three. The sound track,featuring songs by Millencolin, papa roach, rage against the machine, is probably the best I have heard in a playstation game ever. An improvement on the first one is that you can now create your own skater and dream skate park. With hidden levels and characters makes this game unmissable. 5 stars!!

When you're playing a video game, and you're playing a certain level or listening to a certain level's music, do you ever get reminded of a cartoon you use to watch when you were younger? I mean, when I play through the School level in Southern California on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, I'm always reminded of the second season of Digimon, and all those adventures those kids use to go on. Does anybody else ever have thoughts like that?...?...No?...Huh. Must be just me then.

Published by Activision and developed by Neversoft, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 skated onto the PSone in September 2000. You skate through levels; pulls off tricks with simple controls; complete challenges; and unlock skating videos. It sounds just like the first Tony Hawk's game, only this sequel brings many more features to the board meeting. Get it? Skaters? Skateboards? Board meeting?...Oh, the things I say to entertain readers.

First of all, there are thirteen skaters in Tony Hawk's 2 to start with, an increase on the ten that featured in the first game. The likes of Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek and Andrew Reynolds make a return; and joining them are Steve Caballero, Eric Koston and Rodney Mullen. There are a few hidden skaters to unlock in the Career Mode, one of whom is...well, let's just say he's the "friendly neighbourhood" kind of person. Also you can skate as yourself. Kinda.

You see, Tony Hawk's 2 was the first game in the series to feature the Create-A-Skater option. Here you can fix your skater up with your preferred hairstyle, choice of clothing, skin colour and body shape. This option is not rammed with hundreds of choices, but there should be enough here to allow you to create a skater that you'll be reasonably satisfied with.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 was pure gold back in the day and it still remains an absolute classic in my opinion. However being around fifteen years old the graphics at least for me are a bit too shabby and it certainly isn't within the realm of games that have aged gracefully - Despite this the game play in itself is still entertaining and it has an excellent soundtrack and the controls are still incredibly smooth, it certainly isn't virtually unplayable like a lot of games from back then.

Okay so this might be 4 years too late but thats the kinda time span it takes to realise that something is legendary. Looking back, and owning all the subsequent THPS and THUG games it's easy to say that for sheer unadulterated playability and era defining gameplay THPS2 is the best of all the games. It might not have the best graphics, the most in depth levels or the biggest music cache, but it's uncomplicated and a 100% delight to play. It's like the song that was playing when you had your first kiss, or time you were driving on an empty road on a gorgeous summer day. It's just filled with memories from whatever time in your life you played it. Buy this game and share the cheesey memories: you won't regret it. The Venice Beach and the School levels almost bring a tear to my eye!

This game is so cool. It users the same game engine as its predecessor but this time we are treated to new (bigger and better) levels, new challenges, new tricks, more secrets, new tunes (this game boasts a brilliant rock/ punk/ hip-hop soundtrack), better presentation, the create-a-player mode and, best of all, a level editor, to design your own tracks. To be honest there aren't many differences between this and the original and this is basically just more of the same, but Tony Hawk's 1 was so great in the first place that there are few improvements that could be done, and fans will just love the chance to try out the new levels.
The reason I love this series is because they put the 'fun' factor back into gaming. A lot of games nowadays require you to study the manual or sit through patronising training modes or video footage before you can get into the action. However, with Tony Hawk's you can get straight into the gameplay, and, although it may require a little practice to start getting the points, the learning process is just as fun. The gameplay has elements of the one-on-one beat em up games, as you have to pull off tricky joypad manoeuvres and combos to get the points, and I also noticed that there is a retro element to the game, as racking up points and trying to beat your high score is a key factor here, and very few modern games deal with scoring points.
This game will last ages, there are so many game modes and challenges, that there's always another reason to return to the game. This is also a great game to play with friends, as it's great to show off you skating tricks and there is also a fun two player mode. To sum it all up, this will not convert haters of the series but newcomers should check this out and fans of the original are going to love it.
