    An irresistible package born of the classic mold but with an invigorating twist. [Nov 2004, p.140]
  2. The game, while it doesn't provide anything drastically different like previous versions, is still quite fun and as I mentioned, the most in-depth yet. Nonetheless, it does make you wonder how long Neversoft can pull off these yearly sequels.

    Yes, it's similar to previous Hawk games at heart - certainly cause for concern for players burned out on the series - but what a monster game it is. [Dec 2004, p.87]

    It is great to have the Classic Mode back, and combined with another enjoyable story mode, you're looking at least a good dozen hours of gameplay at your hands.
  5. The only positive aspect for those that have played the game, and feel the same as I do, is that Neversoft has officially announced that their next installment will go in a new direction with hopes of revitalizing the franchise.
  6. It may be more cartoon-like than its predecessors, but provided you haven't grown tired of all those boomerangs, kick-flips and boardslides, it is certainly the one to get. [Official UK Xbox Magazine]

    The entire single-player campaign just ruins what could have been a truly excellent sequel to what was a flawed but strong new entry into a well-established franchise. Instead, it feels as if Neversoft did not want to improve on what needed work and then prayed that players would not notice.

    It's a mild improvement on THUG 1, but I still see THPS3 & 4 as being the best in the series.

    The graphics Sick and It is not on system link. The levels are big and there is a lot of replay value with all of the customization.

It's time to let go. Nothing has changed since TH2 except they keep trying to make it like the GTA games. Graphics look like first gen PS2 which isn't acceptable on Xbox. Time for this developer to find a new style of game to run into the ground. Expand

    This looks like a new Hawk as it's visuals hit a brand new level but does it ever take another step back in gameplay. There was a time This looks like a new Hawk as it's visuals hit a brand new level but does it ever take another step back in gameplay. There was a time when TH2 was the mainstay in any skaters homes but man would someone please let them know we are bored of the same thing. Re-invent it or let it die. Expand
