    Once you get the controls down, you're in for the greatest board meeting of your life.
  2. More game play, more parks, more sounds and more options than you can shake a stick at - Tony Hawk's just got better.
  3. There's enough skaters, objectives, levels, and secrets to unlock to keep you going for weeks, if not months, and even after you've mastered the entire game, you'll be coming back for more.
  4. Remodeled player models, higher resolution textures, even better lighting features all top the list of Dreamcast over PlayStation improvements.
  5. The tricks are so easy to perform that even a person with little or not interest in the actual sport can have a great time. This is a title than is fun for virtually anyone.
  6. The 2-player mode is outrageously fun.
  7. THPS2 takes the original game, pulls it into the garage, and puts the whole supercharger extras package on, and peels out to you. The skateboarding experience punches up 2-3 notches to a game that is definitely worthy of your attention.
