Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

12 Helpfuls 13 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Extremely innovative game design, addictive and challenging, great audio
Cons Pretty short and the only replayability is to enjoy playing through it again
Recommended it? Yes

"Who the hell is Tony Hawk" is probably the first thing that came to my mind when I first found out about this game. I was determined to hate it too. It was over a decade ago, but Tony Hawk must be the series I've played the most out of all the sports games I've tried. It basically created the... Read full review »

Cons Very frustrating and repetitive, too unforgiving in places.
Recommended it? No

When Tony Hawk's Pro Skater came out in the Fall of 1999, it was immediately rewarded with tons of praise and critical fanfare. Many hailed it as the most groundbreaking extreme sports game ever made, and one publication even went as far as to call it "Overall Best Game Of 1999." Having played this... Read full review »

Pros Fun and addictive, many characters
Cons Inferior to TH 3 & 4, no manualing, poor graphics, not for PS 2
Recommended it? Yes

Basically, this was the game to start it all. In Tony Hawk 1 [made for Playstation One only], you start off with next to nothing as a "career" and must choose a skater. You begin with one level and there are 5 goals per level, represented as "tapes", that you must complete. There are numerous... Read full review »

To signify my first year (and seven days) anniversary at Epinions, decided to write a review on Tony Hawk Pro Skater (THPS) for Playstation. While it may not mean anything to you, it does to me. My first actual review was on Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2x in February of last year. What better way to show... Read full review »

Combining elements of fighting and racing games, Tony Hawk?s Pro Skater is one of those titles that you either love or hate. Some people will find it fun and diverse while others find it frustrating and difficult.

Pros Fun to play, hard to get bored of
Cons Lack of good graphics and is unrealistic
Recommended it? No

I actually found this game to be much too easy. It's fun to play and all, but just much too easy. It is also very short for it's price.

There are 'hidden' arenas but they aren't really hidden because you are told about them.

On the other hand, the game is very interesting if... Read full review »

Well, another skating game to add to the Psx collection. I have a couple of games already but I decided to give this one a try after reading such a good review of it. The game was alright. The load times are a little slow, but that might be due to my older machine.

Cons Not all of the moves are listed in the manual

Tony Hawks is the worlds greatest ever skate boarder. He was the first to ever pull off a 900-degree spin and was the creator of modern day skating and a man who made it the popular sport it is today. To have such a great name on the front of your game adds an air of expectation to... Read full review »

One thing that is cool about Tony Hawks Pro Skater is that you have good variety. There are several players, locations, moves, and boards to choose from.

A few of the players besides Tony Hawk are Kareem Campbell, Chad Muska, and Bucky Lasek.

Pros Good game with nice graphics
Cons Controller is very hard to use
Recommended it? Yes

Normally I'd of had more respect for this game. Hadn't I been in controller spiking rages. The controllers aren't made for a game this complex. Switching in and out of moves. Making that last ditch effort that is all to hard. That is it's short coming however Tony Hawk is a fun game. With good... Read full review »

Cons If there are any, I didnt see them.

This game is great. A better extreme sport game was never made. It allows for so many variations of tricks and combos that one could play this game for months and never play a level the same way twice. This is a truly great game for anyone who does or doesnt know anything about skateboarding. I... Read full review »

The first time I had a chance of playing this game, I was hesitant, I've played skate games before and I thought this one was going to be like skate or die type. Man was I wrong.
