  1. There is no doubt about the quality of the series and its playability, but I wish for more: invention, freedom, a camera that behaves and link up play for instance.

    Wow! This game came out in 2001? I find that hard to believe because the gameplay looks like 2004. This is among the best sports games I haveWow! This game came out in 2001? I find that hard to believe because the gameplay looks like 2004. This is among the best sports games I have played. Not only have the skateboarding physics improved, but the large amount of customization and fantastic level design are great. The controls can be very difficult, so I recommend this to more experienced players. You can not only create your own skater character, but also your own skate park! Full Review »

    This game is great, but not as good as THPS 4 in my opinion. And the music is great, and I have no idea why Ian and Shawn hated it.
