I enjoy the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games very much, and this one is by far
best one. The graphics are better and the gameplay is changed a little,
its the best. The feature of having no time limits is great and the
locations are really good. The Create a Skater and create a park is also
really good features that add to this great game. I'd say if you are a
of the other ones, this is one game to buy, or at least
Thanks for reading..
All the versions are good except for PS1 and GBA. I know I wrote in my
review that the PS1 version is great, but now I have a GameCube and it
the PS1 version and the GBA versions look like Pong. Seriously folks, if
want this game, get it for GameCube, PS2, or Xbox. Don't bother with the
other two. They aren't worth the time or money.\
For one thing, they had to rate the PS1 version "E" for some reason, which
means ruining the song lyrics, only male custom skaters, and no Daisy!

Really only fun if you don't do most of the goals. The game is messed up in that it does things you don't tell it to do, doesn't do things you clearly tell it to do, or randomly has you fail a mission at the end for the sole purpose of making you do it for another four hours to get it right. A huge disappointment. If I were you, I would simply do the bare minimum to be able to play the game well, on your own, without having to stick to the pointless and nearly impossible missions they give you. Even the first three titles from Tony Hawk were better than this sorry excuse for a video game. If you do buy this game, try to buy it for the lowest possible, or get it for free because it isn't really worth that much.
I just received Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 for Christmas and it rocks!
Soundtrack is the best of the series, because it has AC/DC and other songs
that aren't limited to the nineties and 2000's. Lots of hangtime gaps,
parks, great graphics, and above all, playability. This game has the most
skateboarding tricks you can do than any in the series. It has mostly the
same tricks as THPS3 but it adds a few. The best part is that all of the
parks actually exist in real life. Like Kona, for example. That's been
for decades. It is cloned perfectly from the bright red pool to the many
rails. Nice job, Activision and Neversoft; another masterpiece shines,
along with the rest of the series and the Spider-Man games. My favorite
feature is create skater. I know it's been in the games since THPS2 but it
adds more clothes and decks. In the PS2 version you can also make a female

Buy it if you have a GBA, PS1, PS2, Gamecube, or Xbox.
"Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4" scared me at first. The gameplay was completely
different, and at first I didn't like that. But after a while, I realized
the game is much more challenging than its predecessors, and has excellently
detailed, fully immersible, larger levels, as well as many more options and
improved graphics and physics.
I'm not sure if it is, overall, my favorite Pro Skater game. I don't think I've had quite as much fun, per say, as I did playing the other three.
I personally think they should end the franchise now. They are ahead, and should stay that way while they can.
The real-life Hawk's popularity is practically over. He isn't what kids are talking about anymore. Just like yo-yos and Pokemon, every franchise has to eventually end, and I think Hawk should retire professionally and end his video game ring. He should stop while he's ahead.
Other than that, die hard fans of the original Tony Hawk video games might be disappointed in this new game. I myself enjoy some of the aspects, but find myself also missing other aspects of the game.
Close to the best, but not quite there.
4.5/5 stars --
