  • 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.
  6. 96
    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.

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

    Tony Hawk games are very overrated. The games do not stand the test of time and do not belong in the top games of all time list.
