  • Summary: As most major publishers' development efforts shift to any number of next-generation platforms, Tony Hawk 2 will likely stand as one of the last truly fantastic games to be released on the PlayStation.

  1. The best skateboarding game ever and one of the greatest PlayStation games of all time.
  2. 100
    Grind until your wheels fall off, because that's what we do almost every single day.
  3. It's so good it should come with a warning label -- or at least some methadone.
  4. Could possibly be the best game ever.
  5. The levels are bigger, the trick catalog is more plentiful, the number of goals per level has been doubled, and the already stunning gameplay has been honed even further.
  6. 96
    If I ever wind up stuck on a desert island with nothing but a PlayStation and a few select games, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is one game I will definitely own.
  7. Maybe the level design of the original wasn't so special to you but for us it's a step down.

    Not just the best skateboarding game made, but the best sports game made. Everyone who played this when they first had a playstation will all have very fond memories of THPS2. Expand

    Very entertaining the first time I played it. Definitely the best Tony Hawk game. 10/10 for a skating game, but it just doesn't compare to some other titles on the Playstation. I think a 7 is a fair rating. Expand

    This game does NOT deserve to be at the top of any game list. I understand that it was good for it's time, but being up there with Ocarina of Time? The only reason this game is in it's current position is because it has very few but very dedicated reviewers. We need more actual critics to put on their realism caps and bash this game for what it is because the fact that it's this high on such a trusted review site is despicable. And YES, I played and enjoyed the game in my youth as well, but I understand it's place in the gaming world. Expand
