  • Summary: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2x was designed to take full advantage of the technical capabilities of Xbox. The game features the franchise's signature gameplay, intuitive controls, all of the levels from both Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 and the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, in addition to more populated environments, brand new levels, realistic special effects and smoother lifelike animations. The inclusion of system link gameplay brings the skateboarding experience to life. Expand

    The more rabid Tony Hawk fans should find more then enough here to come back and play through it again while the newbies get a great introduction to the series.
  2. New sounds, better quality, more levels, a park editor that lets you do everything but make you the King of England. The best part is the movies and the near DVD quality presentation they show.

    For the added levels and pumped-up graphics alone, this is worth having.

    It's a sweet package for your permanent library, bu tif you've played any earlier version and aren't a Tony junkie, you can get by with a rental to check out the new stuff.
  5. For those of you who've played the previous versions to death, then you may want to pass on this and wait for part 3 to come out early next year.
  6. For the already initiated, the new levels aren’t even worth a rental and getting used to skating with the Xbox controller can be like getting used to a splinter in your eye.
  7. Aside from the new levels (which, it should be noted are every bit as good as those in the original), everything is pretty much straight out of THPS2. [Jan 2002, p.88]

    10 might seem generous after observing the graphical quality (or lack there of), but really it isn't. THPS2X is packed with extras including tony hawk 1 and great bonus levels for tony hawk 2. So while not flashy, the value here is relatively unmatched. I'd take 2X over Underground without hesitation. Expand

    The first Tony Hawk game for the X-box is a gem! A must-have!

    Stop just stop 2 was enough Tony Hawk games. This is the forth Hawk game. They're making a Tony Hawk 4 is Activision trying to go out of biznaz. The first Hawk game is still the best in my eyes. Expand
