  1. Where else can you skate to Iron Maiden, AC/DC, De La Soul, Public Enemy and the Sex Pistols? "Evolution Skateboarding"? Yeah, right! [Dec 2002, p.76]
  2. 96
    A vast improvement over its predecessors.
  3. Takes all the best elements from the past three games and polishes them to a blinding shine.
  4. 91
    This is absolutely, without a doubt, the most complete and impressive edition of the THPS series yet.
  5. Many missions - while fun - take away from the skating, which is why we play the game. [Dec 2002, p.130]
  6. I really got into "THPS 3" and I'm happy to report that THPS 4 is a better game in every possible way.
  7. Freed from time constraints, you now accomplish level-specific goals—like outmaneuvering skater-busting cops—to advance while on the lookout for secret minigames.

    This is yet another great Tony Hawk game. There is so much to do. There are so many goals and moves to discover that it surprised me. And This is yet another great Tony Hawk game.

    YEAH this game rocks i play it all the time its probly the best game I've ever played. at first i was skeptical cuz i actually do skate YEAH this game rocks i play it all the time its probly the best game I've ever played. at first i was skeptical cuz i actually do skate an didnt think a game could measure up but it does bigtime justice to real life skating. I use create-a-skater and skate with sort of gamecube version of myself that has a somewhat similar tatoo. Expand

    This game is awesome it takes a while to learn but if you are an experienced game player you should learn in no time. THIS is a very hard This game is awesome it takes a while to learn but if you are an experienced game player you should learn in no time. THIS is a very hard game. I have had it for two months and I still have not beat it. Do not get frusturated like I said this is a very hard game. All I can say is this is a very hard game even extremely good gamecube players will have a hard time so do not get frustrated. Expand

    THPS4 is really good, but i didn't find as much replayability after i was done souping. It takes a lot of effort to find the really good THPS4 is really good, but i didn't find as much replayability after i was done souping. It takes a lot of effort to find the really good combos, like in Tony 3, which was also an excellent game. Overall it's worth purchasing and enjoying for a long time to come. Expand
