    The visuals are the sickest they've ever been in a Hawk game, but that should come as no surprise--this is the 360. The player skins and massive environments are polished beyond belief, while the moves look exceptionally lifelike.

    THAW for Xbox 360 is a phenomenal game...if you haven't picked it up already.
  3. It’s a perfectly blend of extreme sports action with an intuitive trick system that allows you to grow with the game, and big city free-roaming adventure much like a GTA game without all the violence.
  4. American Wasteland is good, it just isn’t as impressive as it could have been considering the console’s capabilities.

    This was my favorite Tony Hawk game and the franchises peak. Great park creator, cool character creator, and a goofy but simple story with a predictable ending. While a large chunk of the levels are from older games ranging from THUG2 Remix for the PSP to THPS1 on the N64, I didn't know until later and still don't really care. It's a solid title and more of the same great game. Full Review »
