    Fun, addictive, and exciting -- you couldn't ask for more in a game. Tony Hawk may not have the graphic flair of the Dreamcast, but it goes to prove that looks aren't everything.
  2. It's a breath of fresh air to play such an entertaining and well done video game. Since I'm a fan of skateboarding, I truly appreciate the quality of work put into this product, but skaters and non-skaters alike will find this game a joy to play.
  3. Neversoft has captured the feeling of the sport as it has never been before. Dirty, gritty and real. You can almost feel the scraped knees.
  4. Not only have I never played a better skateboarding title on the PSX, but I don't believe I've ever played a better skateboarding title ever, on any platform.
  5. It was so easy to get into that I was almost fooled into thinking the real-life sport could be that easy.
  6. If you’re looking for a damn good skateboarding game, on any platform, start here.
  7. The only real complaint I have with Tony Hawk's is the fact that the game gets very samey after a while.

    This is the game that started it all, only complaint is the lack of Revert, but that only adds to the challenge and excitement.

    This is some of the best games I have ever played. I love it, from start to finish and its impossible not to like this game if your already into these kind of games that involves extreme-sport adventures. This is a must-have game for any fan of ps1 and its a classic in any sense of the word! Collapse

    Looking back, THPS is an extremely primitive game. But at the time, it was revolutionary. Then and now I rate it how I am now.

    The game that made Tony Hawk a household name was certainly worthy of all the praise it received. Importantly the controls felt very natural meaning that with a bit of practice it was possible to pull of all manner of tricks and combos. It certainly looks dated now but even today it is more than playable. Expand

    Considering how much the series has improved, all the sequels are much more recommendable. This one is for the hardcore fans of the series. Buy Pro Skater 3 instead. Expand
