Great game, cheesy dialogue.
27 November 2005 | by anblethSee all my reviews

I just started playing and am almost finished with the latest installment of the Tony Hawk series. Tony Hawk's American Wasteland plays similar to its predecessors, only difference being that there are a few new moves and options that greatly enhance the game play. The levels are all linked together so you won't have to select them from a screen; you just ride to the location using the Skateboard, BMX, or the bus or truck if you're lazy. The downside seems to be that the conversations amongst the characters could be dull or sappy, and sometimes really cheesy. This doesn't really take away from the game due to the fact you'll spend most of your time completing missions or riding from town to town.

I can personally say that once I started playing, I couldn't put it down for hours. The missions are just really exciting, creative and challenging enough to keep you playing nonstop.

Aside from the dialogue, I give it a 9/10.
