    The speed has also been cranked, so that skaters fly through the levels at an insane velocity. [Nov 2002, p.50]
  2. Not only is this the greatest THPS yet, but as always is one of the year’s best games. Period.
  3. An extreme skateboarding masterpiece.
  4. The effect of these changes is hard to overstate. The gameplay is much more laid back, and without having to restart levels over and over, it flows better.
  5. Better graphics, better environments, more options, and most importantly of all, a massively overhauled gameplay structure, exactly what the old dear needed. [Dec 2002, p.138]
  6. With timeless beats like De La Soul's "Oodles of O's" plus pre-Mortal Kombat combos (which don't require memorizing 56 moves), you'll forget you actually bought this game for your kid. [25 Oct 2002, p.83]
  7. While there is no questioning the game's ability to sap huge portions of your life, we'd dare say there may be better ways to spend said portions of said life until next year's edition hits Xbox Live. [Winter 2002, p.92]

    I agree with the person below. This is more fun than underground 1 and 2. It's also one of my favorite games of all time.
