  • Summary: As most major publishers' development efforts shift to any number of next-generation platforms, Tony Hawk 2 will likely stand as one of the last truly fantastic games to be released on the PlayStation.

    The best skateboarding game ever and one of the greatest PlayStation games of all time.

    Grind until your wheels fall off, because that's what we do almost every single day.
  3. It's so good it should come with a warning label -- or at least some methadone.
  4. Could possibly be the best game ever.
  5. The levels are bigger, the trick catalog is more plentiful, the number of goals per level has been doubled, and the already stunning gameplay has been honed even further.

    If I ever wind up stuck on a desert island with nothing but a PlayStation and a few select games, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is one game I will definitely own.
  7. Maybe the level design of the original wasn't so special to you but for us it's a step down.

    It's a 15-year-old PlayStation game and still it holds up as one of the best ever made. So, uh, props.
    It's not a very good pick-up-and-play

    It's not a very good pick-up-and-play game, though. But if you've played any other TH game after this one it shouldn't be too hard for you to learn.

    While THPS was an oustanding game, THPS2 guaranteed the series' ongoing success. With new tricks and two new modes

    Truly a fantastic sports game. One of a kind, even in its own series of games.
    Great music, great style, fun missions and amazingly memorable

    Great music, great style, fun missions and amazingly memorable levels.
    I have had so much fun playing this game in my life and I will continue to play it alongside the other pro skater games until they stop working or I die.
