  1. American Sk8land is a better game, but only marginally so it isn't really worth the price of admission unless you're a hardcore Tony Hawk fan.
  2. A nice little program that really brings little new to the series as a whole, other than supplying gamers with a seamless environment.
  3. SK8Land seems to have all of the right ingredients that should make for an awesome handheld Hawk experience - but for some reason, the final product just is not all that engaging.
  4. American SK8Land doesn't quite capture the magic of its console brethren.
  5. The game simply is lacking in the fun factor and dosen't hold your attention long enough to make you really want to play it. There's also a complete lack of immersion partially due to the paper-thin plotline, the generic sound and the minimalistic graphics.
  6. Sk8land looks slick and controls like a Tony Hawk game should, but its skate park designs are weak and its story mode missions lack creativity.
  7. This game brings nothing worth mentioning to the franchise, and almost feels like a step backward. [Jan 2006, p.116]

    This game was okay, though I would have expected better. The game is not very long and not too hard either. There is also a classic mode so that made it a little more worth while. Full Review »
