One of the best Tony Hawk portables ever made
J D from United States
10 June 2007
While this chapter of the Tony Hawk saga takes a decidedly juvenile
turn, its still a lot of fun - especially for a portable. The gameplay
is cel-shaded, just like the previous TH game for the DS (American
Sk8land), but it works extremely well. The characters and backgrounds
are all extremely crisp.
While the occasional move doesn't work perfectly, most everything is
timed to a tee. Repeatedly pressing the turbo button (a new addition to
the series) makes your thumb extremely tired, but its a cool option
that really helps as the levels mount.
The level designs are all great, except for the last level, which is a
re-hash of a previous PS2 downhill level ("The Dam", here referred to
as "Hoover Dam"). The music rocks - and its a true pleasure to hear
real licensed music in stereo sound coming from the DS - the Green Day
track is a personal fave.
All-in-all, an excellent addition to my DS library. If you're a fan of
TH, snowboarding, or racing games - pick this bad boy up! 9/10
