  • Summary: For the first time, players will have the freedom to define their character, story and style based on the choices they make, the paths they choose and the style of skating they use on the proving grounds from Philadelphia and Baltimore to Washington, D.C. Tony Hawk's Proving Ground features deeper customization than ever before, including a Video Editor with full-featured editing tools and visual effects for creating "epic skate videos," and a fully customizable online Skate Lounge where players can skate with friends in the ultimate pad. In addition, players have the freedom to skate from single player to online seamlessly, as well as utilize new gameplay mechanics such as skateable terrain altering and building, and Bowl Carving. Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground also features even more Nail the Trick moves such as Nail the Grab and Nail the Manual intensifying the thrill of pulling off big tricks. [Activision] Expand

  1. Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground does a great job of bringing the Proving Ground experience to the Wii and PS2. The game is a port of the next-generation versions and includes many of the same environments, goals, characters, etc.
  2. The Wii version is very good with a few problems with the controls but the graphics and other portions of the game are really very good.
  3. Tony Hawk's Proving Ground for the Wii is a good game with classic gameplay and creative controls. The graphics fall short and there is no online component, but it is a very entertaining title on the whole.
  4. Only the most hardcore fans are going to persevere with it, and even then it just doesn't work properly. [Jan 2008, p.52]
  5. This version of Proving Ground makes it pretty clear that the priority for the Tony Hawk series is not on this platform.
  6. There really is no excuse for such a poor Wii version. Sort it out Activision. [Jan 2008, p.87]

    Extremely shoddy controls mean that you'll likely be throwing your Wii Remote and Nunchuck around the room and ejecting the disc before you even come close to getting your money's worth.
