    The more rabid Tony Hawk fans should find more then enough here to come back and play through it again while the newbies get a great introduction to the series.
  2. New sounds, better quality, more levels, a park editor that lets you do everything but make you the King of England. The best part is the movies and the near DVD quality presentation they show.

    For the added levels and pumped-up graphics alone, this is worth having.

    It's a sweet package for your permanent library, bu tif you've played any earlier version and aren't a Tony junkie, you can get by with a rental to check out the new stuff.
  5. For those of you who've played the previous versions to death, then you may want to pass on this and wait for part 3 to come out early next year.
  6. For the already initiated, the new levels aren’t even worth a rental and getting used to skating with the Xbox controller can be like getting used to a splinter in your eye.

    Aside from the new levels (which, it should be noted are every bit as good as those in the original), everything is pretty much straight out of THPS2. [Jan 2002, p.88]

THPS2X is packed with extras including tony hawk 1 and great bonus levels for tony hawk 2. So while not flashy, the value here is relatively unmatched. I'd take 2X over Underground without hesitation. Expand

    The first Tony Hawk game for the X-box is a gem! A must-have!

It's easily theThe Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series is the one that I give credit for not only getting me into skating but also video games. It's easily the most nostalgic series for me and probably, when it's all said and done.. my favorite series of video games. Anyway, I didn't jump in until Tony Hawk's Underground, the fifth game in the series. Not to say I didn't go back to check out the older ones, I did and I did that extensively but the nostalgic value is just a tad lower when it comes to the first 2 THPS games especially. I pretty much only played the PS2 era Tony Hawk games as a kid so I never got a chance to play the first two games in their original form for more than a couple times, if that. Thankfully, I don't need to try and find some good deal on some old PS1 games when I have this. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2X is a remaster of the first two Tony Hawk games that was exclusive to the original Xbox. I play it on my 360. Anyway, to me, it's the definitive way to play the first two games. Better graphics, all the levels, bonus levels (even though they're pretty bad ones), almost everything about this version surpasses the original versions in my opinion. Couple that with the fact that these two games are some of the most revolutionary and, dare I say, best of all time... and you've got yourself an absolute monster packed into a compact disc. I'd rate it higher but there are later Tony Hawk games that I prefer to it, as biased as that may be. I beat this game in February of 2020 after beating it many times before. Expand

    Stop just stop 2 was enough Tony Hawk games. This is the forth Hawk game. They're making a Tony Hawk 4 is Activision trying to go out of Stop just stop 2 was enough Tony Hawk games.
