Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, with all of its new additions, is basically more of the same stuff that players saw in the first Tony Hawk's Pro Skater--which is not a bad thing at all. Those who loved the first will especially love all of the new skate parks, with their hidden areas that can be unlocked by performing certain tricks. For instance, on the first stage, players will have to grind across an airplane propeller to get the thing to twirl, which opens a hangar door. There also are some neat little touches to the levels, like a hall monitor who races around in a golf cart at the high school.

Neversoft, the developer of the first Hawk game, really deepens this installment by challenging players with 10 objectives per level. Now, not only do players have to find hidden tapes and reach high scores by doing tricks, they have to jump certain gaps, as well as collect items and cash. This kept us playing some levels for hours before completing the majority of level objectives--and even then there were some objectives, like achieving a "sick" score, that we couldn't quite manage.

The levels are set up to allow some clever trick combinations, and players even can create their own skate parks by choosing from over a hundred props, including ramps, rails, and pools. Also fun is creating a skater from scratch, and determining his weight, attire, and skills, which can be improved by earning cash in career mode.

Like the last game, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 dips into the worlds of hip-hop, rap, and punk rock for its soundtrack, although many of the songs are recognizable and pretty old--this loses some of the freshness that the soundtrack had on the original. And that describes the game in a nutshell: not as fresh, but still an extreme amount of fun. --Robb Guido

Pros:

  • More objectives per level than previous game
  • 13 pro skaters, with different outfits and boards
Cons:
  • Soundtrack lacks freshness of original
  • More of same stuff we saw in original

4.0 out of 5 stars dont wipeout tony! Nov. 13 2003
i got this game back in '00 and i thought it was the best game on the market. And do you know what? I now think only two other games out marvel it, spyro year of the dragon and Tony Hawk 3. Tony Hawk 2 was a game not ment for it's time. It's like 20,000 leagues under the sea, it was a book about the future and now we can go 20000 leagues under. Tony Hawk has preesed the limits for tony Hawk more than you notice. When my friend told me that Tony Hawk 3 was out for playstation, i went to his house and i thought the console would explode. In this game you can grind, ollie, do lip tricks, flip tricks and specials that will blow your mind! The characters are way cool! There are secret characters too such as spiderman, officer dick and many others. But if you like these games for the secret characters then deffenetly play thps 3! The levels are totaly cool, especially the bull ring mexico there, if you run over the green poop made by the bull you get 200 dollars each time! (just a hint) The only reason i rate this 4 stars is the graphics though. Other than that, everything is 5 baby!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Stuff Dec 14 2002
This game is a good way to kill a few hours. It might take a while to get the hang of it, and some of the objectives are pretty challenging but its just fun to skate around and grind rails and stuff. The music's not bad, it's varied, offering tunes from Millencollin, P. Roach, and Public Enemy feat. Anthrax(yeah!!!) What I probably like the most about this game, is the custom skater option, in which you can create your own skater, from the complexion, and weight, to the clothing your skater wears. So, if you're like me, a hardcore old school rpg'er looking to stray from the genre, and give yourself a break, this is a great choice. Or, if you're more the casual gamer, or skater or whatever, this is a great title to add to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars TONY HAWK 2 IS AWESOME!!! July 28 2002
By Chris
THIS GAME IS AWESOME! I HAVE HAD IT FOR 3 OR 4 YEARS NOW AND I STILL PLAY IT ALONE AND WITH MY FRIENDS. IT HAS GOOD GRAPHICS, EXCELLENT GAMEPLAY, GOOD SOUND AND GREAT MULTIPLAYER. THEIR ARE ONLY A COUPLE FLAWS IN THIS GAME AND THEY ARE: IN THE FREE SKATE MODE IT DOESNT KEEP TRACK OF YOUR SCORE; THE GRAPHICS SOMTIMES MAKE IT LOOK UNREAL. THATS REALLY ALL THERE IS(THAT I'VE NOTICED) THAT MAKE THIS GAME GET A 4. P.S. DONT BUY POKEMON SNAP IT SUCKS BADLY IF YOU WANT TO READ MORE LOOK FOR MY REVIEW ON IT. HAPPY GAMING

5.0 out of 5 stars This Game Rocks! Sept. 11 2003
So what if they've got the new Tony Hawk games? So what if they have better graphics? Who cares? It's FUN, people, FUN. Stick the word in your head.
I got this game at a Game Stop for 4.99 but I think it's worth 44.99. The create-a-skater fits my nature and the crazed taxi drivers on the NY, NY level and the guy on the golf cart going a hundred miles an hour on the school level I thought were great works of art. Don't buy Pro Skater 4. Buy Pro Skater 2 and see a great classic of the 90s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game July 30 2013
Verified Purchase
I remember when I first try this game, it was on the demo that Playstation was given when you bought the PS1 console. After that I did have the complete version of it and man!! This game was so amazing.. I mean EVERYTHING the game, the music, the characters, the places where you skate.. it was really really good.. All the great skaters back then were in the game.. Anyway if you're a fan of the Tony Hawk's game, you should buy it.. This game is a 10/10!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great game! Jan. 27 2003
By Mike
I'd buy this game at any price!! The only bad thing about this game is that when you wipe out, it takes about five seconds to get up. It can be painstaking...but it is overall an extremely good game.
