    Fun, addictive, and exciting -- you couldn't ask for more in a game. Tony Hawk may not have the graphic flair of the Dreamcast, but it goes to prove that looks aren't everything.
  2. It's a breath of fresh air to play such an entertaining and well done video game. Since I'm a fan of skateboarding, I truly appreciate the quality of work put into this product, but skaters and non-skaters alike will find this game a joy to play.
  3. Neversoft has captured the feeling of the sport as it has never been before. Dirty, gritty and real. You can almost feel the scraped knees.
  4. It was so easy to get into that I was almost fooled into thinking the real-life sport could be that easy.
  5. This game is simply phenomenal, from its representation of the sport, to its incredible gameplay, all the way down to the brilliant sound effects.
  6. If you’re looking for a damn good skateboarding game, on any platform, start here.
  7. The only real complaint I have with Tony Hawk's is the fact that the game gets very samey after a while.

    the levels are fun, music is terrific, and it runs and looks great for it's age. if anyone still hasn't experienced this game, I highly recommend it.

    Looking back, THPS is an extremely primitive game. But at the time, it was revolutionary. Then and now I rate it how I am now.
