Rated 3 out of 10 by 3 Sev3n 13 This game is ok
This game is okay, but is not my top skateboarding game. When I first played Skate, i realized imediately that compared to Skate, all Tony Hawk games suck. If you are going to use your money, then buy skate, because skate has a more realistic feel to it, unlike in tony hawk where u press up and square. Skate has the unique flick-it control which does give it that skating feel. And in skate the tricks are realistic. Can u pull off a 20 second natas spin? NO. Can u fly in the air 100 feet high after a few kicks? no. If your obviously going to fly over a rail, are u going to start grinding perfectly out of nowhere? no. Plus in real life u cant just ollie and grind again to go faster. So I think I made my point saying that Skate is more realistic and plus the Hall of Meat in Skate is funny and is even better in Skate 2. So if you want to buy a really good quality skate game then buy skate, so start saving for the 360 or ps3 cuz the graphics are really good and the game play is the best!!!!

There is all this buzz for Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, but what people are really going to want is skate. It has more than double the characters, let-alone the skaters are way better. It's still going to be like any old tony hawk game. At least in Skate, it prevents you from button-mashing, and it actually takes skill to play, unlike every other skating game. All in all, your going to end up having to do the same thing. Do lots of tricks, score lots of point, etc. etc. But if you really want a challenge, and the full skateboarding game experience. Skate is the game for you. Don't buy Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, unless if you have Wii, because skate doesn't come out for Wii. So don't by Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, buy Skate, you will thank me later.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Bam margera fan a very great game
the best game I ever played well one of them I would strongy recomend you buy this game. you really get into it after a while and some of the music on it is preety good. you get to customize your own skater and the places you go to are amazingly real looking not to menchen more pro moves thean you can think of. this is probally THE BEST TONY HAWK GAME OUT THERE. it's like the tony hawks pro skaters takin to the max. on multiplayer you can eather play games or just free skate with your friends.I've played the game all the way through and I was just amazed about the graphincs and all of the other parts not to menchen movie sceens. THIS REALLY IS THE BEST SKATEBOARDING GAME I'VE EVER PLAYED IN MY LIFE. oh if you have friends that might be interested TELL THEM

Proving Ground has more new additions to the game than ever before. I'm a huge fan of the Tony Hawk games (I have all of them except Project 8) and what I'm really looking forward to is the new story mode. You can be a hardcore skater and skate for yourself and yourself alone. You can be a rigger, that doesn't care much for fame but you are extremely innovative and makes a skate spot out of nothing. Finally, you can be a career skater, where you skate 24/7 for money and trophies. Based on the decisions you make, the ending to the game turns out differently and depending on the skater you turn out to be, you learn different tricks. I am extremely excited about this game and I'm probably gonna reserve it . Skate has nothin on Tony Hawk!
Rated 0 out of 10 by skate addiction Stop with the cometition already!
Does it really matter witch one is more realistic? Skate has its unique controls (which I have too admit are a little more fun) and Tony Hawk's games have got thier super-human skate abitiltys. But they are both great skateboarding games. Everyone says, "If you are a true skater, buy Skate." If someone actually made a REAL skateboarding game, we all know it would be so boring. If you do a frontside-flip down a ten stair, you gonna be pretty proud about yourself. If you do it in a game, it will give you like 800 points, and you won't even care.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer SKATE And THPG
SKATE, as my opinion, is nearly just like THPG - TOny Hawk's Proving Ground. Now, I am not trying to say that THPG sucks or that it is better than SKATE, but I truly think that SKATE and THPG are the same in many ways. Although SKATE has more characters and more opened land, it has a lot of the same features just as THPG does. Such as making videos, getting sponsored, and plenty of other stuff. Since I got to go, I'll just say this: THPG and SKATE are the all time BEST games in history
Rated 0 out of 10 by Go Devils Sounds Too Good To Be True
I think it sounds to good to be true but you never know. I love the Tony Hawk series but like someone else said the series stared going down hill. I hope to see a better Create-a-modes. I know it said its going to be better but sometimes they put stuff on the synopsis but doesnt show up on the game. Im hoping they will step up the whole game too because EA is making a skating game. Finally theres competition.

I can't wait for this one to come out. I love Tony Hawk games. it is gonna be better than the Proskater 3 and 4, underground and 2, and americanwasteland. And Project 8. Also downhill Jam. I hope that this one could have more, bigger free rome than americanwasteland and project 8. Plus new characters. I am gonna be the first one to buy it. So good luck

Its gonna be awesome! In the other Tony Hawk games, you had only one path to travel through out ur career. Now, you have many different ones. You can be a street skater, vert skater, soul skater, or build a career out of it. I think this is going to be so much better than all of the others, including the amazing THUG 2 and project 8!
