  • Summary: Players can choose to skate with the skills of Tony Hawk, the most legendary pro of all time, or as one of 12 pro skaters from the star-studded lineup. The game's intuitive and solid control scheme allows players to perform hundreds of tricks in a variety of realistic, obstacle-filled, real-world locations. [Activision] Expand

  1. But for sheer fun, there are a few games that can compete with Tony Hawk 2's excellent mix of tricks, bails and hidden swag.
  2. 100
    It doesn't take a skateboarding fan to be a Tony Hawk fan -- this is just a fun game that PC gamers won't want to miss.
  3. If it weren't for my fear of pain, this game would make me pick up a board again.
  4. The best skateboarding experience going on the PC -- and given the improved graphics, it is arguably the best version of the game out there.
  5. 89
    As a PC port however, it's somewhat disturbing that these issues weren't resolved. It all comes down to the apparent laziness in fixing the shortcomings of the PSX version.
  6. A much bigger oversight is the removal of the PlayStation’s split-screen multiplay in favor of a LAN-based multiplayer mode.
  7. There are intermittent slow-downs and brief stoppages during play, particularly during aerial acrobatics. The game seems to prefer Voodoo cards over the NVIDIA line, so you may have better luck if your machine is equipped with Voodoo magic.

    This game took the success from the first game and turned it into an even better game. This the 4th one and the first underground were the best games of the entire series and in my opinion this one was the best, even today. Expand
