  • 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.

    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.

    ohhhh the memories.... I remember playing this game no my own and I had no problems making all the goals in everylevel. Including secrets andohhhh the memories.... I remember playing this game no my own and I had no problems making all the goals in everylevel. Including secrets and such. I replayed every level so many times that I even made lists of how to complete the 10 goals with less attempts possible.

    When I first played this game with friends, they were so bad that they worshipped me as a god. They could make that many points. My trick? half pipe most of the time and in every jump, first a trick with the Square and a trick with the circle, all that while spinning 720º at least. Try everycombination to make 200.000 minimun. Their best score was roughly 10.000 therefore, I was a god for em.

    and thats my story and my best memory of the game. Everything in this game is perfect. I still play sometimes nowadays with the PSX emulator in my raspberry pi3

    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.
