  • Summary: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 redefined an already great game. Its addition of stellar new features (like Create-A-Park), and great game-play tweaks (the manual maneuver will be copied for years to come) made it the best installment in a killer series of games. Anyone who has ever skated the Philadelphia level will agree -- this game is a masterpiece of level design. Hell, it's a masterpiece all around. There isn't a bad park or dull moment, just pure gaming nirvana! Collapse

  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. 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.
  3. As complete a package as anything Nintendo or Rare has released and it deserves the respect that those titles garner.
  4. 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]

    The fact is, THPS2 is still the best skateboarding game on the market. And the N64 version comes with the same addiction factor.
  6. Nevermind the graphics. Forget the sound. The reason that so many people worship the Hawk series is because it is a fun game.
  7. 60
    Despite its now trademark addictive gameplay, THPS2 just doesn’t cut it anymore—on an aged system Tony just looks and sounds awful, and there aren’t any new features to redeem it.

    Damn awesome, but once you play pro skater 3 or 4, this is not too great. you people who cant find stuff are so stupid. Just because it wasnt made for 2-year olds like pro skater 1 doesn't mean it sucks. Expand
