Rated 9 out of 10 by nick34090 EASY
overall thaw is a really easy game to beat even on the highest difficulty but it has endless side missions and classic mode so u wont get bored. thaw has some really cool features that other th games dont have like create a trick mode which is one of my favorite parts about the game. another feature is bmxing. the game has a whole set of missons which are just for when u r riding one of the bikes scattered around the levels. the third feature thats unique to thaw is create a graphic which u can use for the deck graphic or a tag. thaw is also great because u can either take the bus from level to level or just skate there. another small thing that i liked and others might not notice is that they dont mix classic mode with regular story mode which they have failed to do in some of the newer th games. so, to wrap it up this game is not very challenging but like all th games it is fun even after u beat it (if ur looking for a challenging th game i recommend thps4)
Rated 10 out of 10 by jfitzgerald96 I LOST IT!!! WAHHH!
This is the best game in the Tony Hawk series. Graphics were awesome. sound was good. i found a few glitches, but you can get over that. Im so mad at myself for losing this game. This was a cool game. The storyline is about you trying to make it big in LA. You meet a lady named Mindy. She helps you out to getting you to Beverly Hills, where her buddys, Boone, Dave, Murphy, and Iggy Van Zandt are. They have a skate ranch, and think of an idea to turn them into a big skatepark called "Project Wasteland". Its a storyline that makes you see the unexpected, like when you were trying to dig up the snake run, it turned out for sale. the challenges are easy, and you have to learn moves on the way. From that said, I lost the game, and now im miserablle :( I may buy it again, but first i gotta see a review on project 8. anyway, i recommend it. NO RENTAL, BUY IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You will love it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by UR moma A Tony Hawk miracle
This game is a tony hawk miracle because of its awesome creativity. That's what I loved most about this game. The reason why I gave this game a 5 for challenge is because if you look at the missions menu at the pause menu there is only 85 missions compared to Tony Hawk underground. I just got this game today and I'm already almost halfway through with it. The controls were almost the same as any other Tony Hawk game and I love how you can get off your board in all the new Tony Hawk games. These are the kinda things that boosts up the creativity which is what I always look for in a game. I don't know what interface means so I'll skip it, but I'm sure it's good. The sound is also very good because they added some good music to the game. The graphics had very few things to complain about. Everything was very top notch. Thank you Tony Hawk. I love to skateboard.
Rated 10 out of 10 by madcuzilost American Wasteland!
so i own tony hawks underground (thug) and tony hawks project 8 (thp8) and i must say this game has great things from thug and great things that they later put in thp8. THE GOOD- you can spray paint /tag anything and create your own mark. you can throw your board at things. you can do parkour tricks. you can create your own park. you can purchase from a varaity of tattoo sleves (which you cant do in both thug or thp8). you get to see the transformation of the park you are making which is called american wasteland. you can earn money at anytime so eventually you can buy anything there is to buy. riding bmx bikes was fresh and entertaining. the is an alien and a panda costume you can wear. graphics for gameplay were better and smoother than thug and thp8 although cutscene graphics were better in thp8. and yes you can literally go to every level without loading screens or anything like that. THE BAD- many goals involve you doing something to retrieve pieces for american wasteland and it will feel repetetive for a while. THE END- i think that this game is tied with Tony Hawks Underground for best tony hawk game (they i have played so far)
Rated 10 out of 10 by Monkeybutt31 amazing!!!
I personally love this game. The challenge was great, and for Playstation 2, it had GREAT graphics. The skate places such as Hollywood were awesome too. I liked that you could just ride on through to the next map without having to load like the other games. I also like how if you need to get somewhere fast, you can ride a bus, Iggy's truck, or just ride a bike. The tricks are also sweet. When you figure out a new trick for the skateboard or the bike, its pretty awesome. The ONLY downside to this game is that if you have already beat the game on an easier level, and going to do it on a harder level, you have to learn the tricks again before you can do them. Because i mean, you already know the tricks, you want to keep doing them, but then it takes a while to ge them back. But other than that i absolutely love the game!
Rated 10 out of 10 by MCRfan The game is perfect.
Tony Hawk's American Wasteland is by-far the greatest Tony Hawk video game ever. I've had it for two years and it's still my favorite game.The gameplay is amazing. There are many new tricks, and special tricks. The story is awesome in this game. But sometimes you just want to put down your skateboard, you know? Try something new. Well, how about a bike! There's also BMX in this game. The soundtrack is totally SICK! There's artists like Green Day, Alkaline Trio, Rise Against, Black Flag, and even my favorite band, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE!!! I sold my PlayStation 2 and all of my other games to GameStop, all except this one. I kept it on top of my counter. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
Rated 1 out of 10 by WWEdude This game stinks
Yeah, if you read the title and your a a fan of this game , DON'T READ THIS. This game is by far the WORST skateboarding game ever in history. I had REALLY high hopes for this game . When I played it, it almost made me throw it in the TRASH.I have to say though the graphics are great.With that said from a scale of 1 - 10, heh , well, it's 0! ( two of the games/items below , you can't play those only if you just a ps2 owner.)
Rated 9 out of 10 by cujo1127 Back When Games Were Fun
This game is awesome. It's so much more fun than the new skateboarding games. The world is HUGE and there are a lot of missions to the story. The gameplay is second to none among skateboarding games. The graphics are ok, but hey its a PS2 from 2001! Also, the music is great with good songs from all genres. Its good skateboarding music. I recommend getting this game because you will play it for hours and have a great time!
Rated 10 out of 10 by athleticgamer Best game of all time
What an incredible game! One thing is there is so many places to ride on either a skateboard or bike. In story mode, you can do missions to advance you in the game and unlock new places to skate in either story mode or free skate. It also has a classic mode with tons of cities to skate in! This is a must have game for all gamers!
