  • Summary: Reengineered from the ground up, Tony Hawk’s Project 8 immerses players in the definitive skateboarding experience using ultra-realistic graphics, enhanced physics and responsive controls that simulate the feeling of skating with every trick and bail. The game challenges players to experience the intensity and pressure of skating against some of the world’s top pros in true to life competitions as they aim to become the #1 skater.

  1. If you must play the game on the old PS2 you'll still have a good time; albeit a lonely time. Just don't play it on the 360 or PS3 or you might never be satisfied with your classic system again. Tony has definitely made the jump to next-gen and you might want to do the same.
  2. A good port of the next-generation version. It keeps the solid gameplay and manages to introduce “nail the trick” and focus mode to the mix. As expected there are some concessions. The graphics are noticeably worse, the motion capture animation system is gone, the streaming world is gone, and inexplicably the online multiplayer is gone, too.
  3. The gameplay and controls are solid, and the Nail the Trick mode is a fantastic addition. If you haven’t selected a Next Generation system yet, you might be able to squeak by on this last title, but it is really time to retire the PS2 versions of this series.
  4. The way PS2 Project 8 uses shabby video versions of the Xbox 360 cutscenes to tell the story shows you this is a bit of a corner-cutting exercise in game-making, as is the lack of characters to choose from when starting a game, and the loss of online play.
  5. It is down to the bare bones of the series, leaving you feeling like you're playing the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater again.
  6. Project 8 is just another THPS, except without the "cool" factor.
  7. The PS2 version of Project 8 is a joke. Online was removed -- let me say that again: online is missing.

    This game simply was part of my childhood too. In case he had some errors when you fell from a certain place! How, you down a ramp and into the air, you stumble in a way that is IMPOSSIBLE you was doing in real life! Lacked a bit of gravity in this game but to tell you the game is good, it's GOOD! Expand

    This game isn't bad. It isn't groundbreaking either. The beloved series has been torn apart without Create-A-Park and the addiction factor is pretty low. When I first played this game, I thought it was going to be like its predecessors. But when I saw "Shaba!" I knew something wasn't going to be right. I played it for a while and enjoyed it, but it started to become boring and repetitive. The gameplay itself is really good and the graphics are decent, though. If you like Tony Hawk games, I recommend this to you. But, as a stand-alone game, there's a lot lacking. Expand
