  1. There are so many modes, multi-player games and features that could easily have you seeing less and less daylight as time goes on.
  2. As complete a package as anything Nintendo or Rare has released and it deserves the respect that those titles garner.
  3. While it may not be the most graphically impressive version of the game, it is faithful to the series and manages to be the best skateboarding game for the N64.
  4. If you own a PlayStation, Dreamcast, GameCube, PS2 or Xbox, I can't in good conscience recommend this as a purchase, but THPS 2 is definitely recommended for those of you who only own an N64.
  5. If you can handle the C Button syndrome while mid-air, you'll be winning championships like you were the Hawk himself.
  6. It’s amazing that the now two-year-old engine is still kicking butt…Only if you don’t own a DC or a PS should you buy this. [Sept 2001, p.147]

    Hard to find things... That makes no sense... Anyway, this game is great. (But the sound is annoying)
