the ps3 version is MUCH more fluid than the 360 version. and c'mon...don't listen to anyone telling you that skate is better than thpg. that's like saying halo is better than socom. yes, they're both shooters, but the similarities end there. same with skate and thpg. they're both skateboarding games, but other than that, the differences are monumental. anyone with half a brain wouldn't try to compare them. you want a game where the trick itself is a challenge? get skate. you want a game where the trick is easy, but to keep connecting them is difficult? get tony hawk. if you've played tony hawk, you pretty much should know what you're in for.

If THPG has online chat, I will be so happy, that is the only thing the previous online versions lacked. And as far as the whole "competition" between this and skate, who cares? That's like saying I only play Socom and all other shooter's are just ... (insert negative comment). I am glad there is another game about skateboarding, it's about time. And Skate is a great game, the online is the worst I have ever seen, and that is a huge let down, but other then that.... And what skater, either real or just virtual is not stoked for another game about our sport to play. Gotta do something when we mend our broken bones!
Rated 0 out of 10 by dude Unrealistic combos and complaints
Everyone says that it will suck because of unrealistic combos and stuff. That was only THUG2, and Project 8 was trying to fix that, and did okay. But the reason Project 8 wasn't that great was due to the fact that they were working on Proving Ground more. So, rent it and SKATE. and give them a try. Find out which is better for you. But SKATE. kinda is more of a simulator, so how will it be as a game, well, who knows. Maybe THPG for story and variety and SKATE. for the real experience, though I could just go outside and skate myself. Give 'em both a try. With a PS3 or 360, how could they not be good.

I have the demo for THPG and I own skate. I think skate is a much better game over all with game play and the different control style. Ever since THPS2 and 3, the series has been going down hill. They're all just do insane combo's and none of it looks any different than it did. Honestly, I think skate is a better game. I think the Tony Hawk series is just putting out games cause they have nothing better to do, and Project 8 is now old. So personally, I'm not even gonna buy it. I think skate is a much better game. I'm sick of the 2 million point sick score crap.

So far no one really knows much about this game, I'm going to give it a shot though even if thp8 wasn't that good. I'd really like to see a lot more freedom, like you could walk into most of the buildings without load times and other things. If they could really do a job on the physics and make it so very crazy tricks are impossible, and maybe make better goals. I will probably buy it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by KIngROckSTeady no comp. hawks the best
okay all i gots to say is tony hawk all the way most people on here are just posting stuff that they heard from other people like skate is for skaters, its like your really skating, blah blah blah i own skate at the moment and if they want to beat the hawkman i think they need to try a little harder hawk for life
Rated 0 out of 10 by randomperson mmmeeehhhh. dunno
This game is really fun. Skate is a lot more realistic so if you skate you wanna go with Skate. Tonyhawks is always pretty fun and thisgame is probaly the best one they have came out with since underground 1. unrealaistic combos are pretty fun, but get old after a while. So you gotta go with skate, if you r tired of those1080 ollies.

Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer should be the best tony hawk game
out of all the Tony Hawk games, Tony Hawk's Underground was the best after that the games just started falling down even though there were okay, expect for THUG 2 that game really sucked! So even watching the trailers on this game, it looks like this will be the game of all the Tony Hawk series.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer awesome.
tony hawks does it again like always. i love this series no matter how many games they put out, and skate sux, it's a piece of junk compared to tony hawk. nothing will ever replace tony hawk. The controls for skate are bad and frustrating, and i like unrealistic combos, which tony hawk glorifies.
