Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
Good Sk8 Game for everyone...
Proving ground is by far the best sk8 game out there. The graphics are really detailed and full of realistic looks. I the controls are really simple to learn and to catch (even if you were slow), the sound in the game is great, also AWESOME soundtrack. I love how you can create your very own custom sk8ter. This game also has tutorial were you can learn the tricks and combos easily. You have the Rigger, who teaches you how to rig up pipes and boards to make this town your own sk8 park. Hard Core are dudes that teach you how to sk8 harder and faster to teach you long jump and grind techniques, then you have the Celeb type sk8ters to help teach you the ropes on the celebrity aspect of sk8ters. This game is full of exciting levels and it is challenging so don't take this game and think it's cake walk, this game has you glued to the TV and have you practicing rad tricks till you get it right. Wish you had a choice to unlock certain levels though. TONY HAWK made this game very very very awsome and interesting.
Great game, great story
Proving ground is a really good game. Pretty good graphics, and a really well story. I have fun just finding street challenges and doing them. All together, great buy for only 10.00$.
Im gonna Get this and Skate
Anyways I have a feeling Skate Is gonna beat Tony Hawk On graphics and Realism .. But For the Fun factor I have a feeling tony Hawk will win it easy .. I think its gonna be tough but what it should really come down to instead of graphics is how the game really is.. Which will have more features , replay value I mean for awhile Skate might be really cool but no one knows how the whole game is gonna go could just get boring . I mean I only played the Demo and Im not Complaing I love Skate already .. But Graphics are only a small part of the factors for games .. So Im not gonna bad mouth either game or controls because to me im very adaptable person. We really can not make a clear judgment until oth games are out. but trust me I m a big tony hawk fan but im also a skateboarding fan so of course im getting both because the demo for skate already doesn't suck but I reply back after I play then just got to wait for them to come out..
Great, and very challenging
I got this game free with my 360, and I didn't think I would enjoy it, but my assumption turned out wrong. This game is awesome, I enjoy how you can decide which skater to become and the skate challenges are definitly a bonus. The controls are very easy to learc, although I have found grinding for long distances to be challenging. In the game you meet a lot of pro skaters, which give you advice. I found the hardcore and rigger challenges entertaining, but not carear. Once you unlock the skate checking control though the game gets so much cooler. If you get tired of the challenges you can just go around checking people, and sometimes you get money for it. Overall I liked this game and would give it a 8.5 stars, and I would recommend it to a friend.
TONY HAWK : PROVING GROUNDS
The game is TONY HAWK and its fun and unrealistic just the way I like it , I grew up on tony hawk games and this one I will deffinatly buy aswell . Yes , skate is fun but I played tony hawk ever since i was 5 and playing it now , brings back all of the good memorys i used to have . Thats why i gave it such a high rating . Tony Hawk will always be a great game.
i ment 2 put this is perfect for casual gamers on my review sorry :3
This game was awesome! People say it's boring but you have to love Tony Hawk to get really into it. Im no skater but it's amazing. Hope you buy it. 2 player, good role play.
Before you assume that I am here to bash the game let me explain why I rated it so low. Growing up with the original tony hawk games such as Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1, 2, etc, this game is very different. I miss the crude humor and good soundtrack. Honestly Tony Hawk games have expanded my music tastes and some of the songs from the games are my favorite. But this sound track is extremely lack luster. Picking your own path in the game in way makes it more RPG-like as opposed to the typical linear, straightforward path that most of the Tony Hawk Series take. The graphics are not as bright and colorful as the other games either. The balance stick, when you are grinding, manualing or doing a lip trick is confusing. It does not look like an actual line it looks a lot like a cat scratched each side of the screen. However this game is not all bad.
pretty good game and entertaing.
I bought this game for my xbox because i didnt have any skateing games + im a fan of tony hawk. Its a pretty good game if u ask me. the only thing i have a problem with is that u cant really go that fast. but other than that its a pretty good game.
Forget Tony.. hes getting old
Seriously tony hawk needs to stop putting out games.. they're getting way too old, its always the same thing. Thank god EA decided to freshen up the skate scene and develope a game of their own. Im stoked to get skate cuz it looks pretty knarley and the new control scheme they developed is way rad. In TH games, it was way to easy to bang out tricks... you should have to work for it. The first 4 games tony hawk and activision made were good but after that they sucked. Just way too comical for me, the graphics always are a step behind too easy and just unrealistic. I lost interest in the games mad quick and is why i aint buying this one. EA's skate is a godsend and and is totally original. So you all should forget buying THPG and just get skate instead...
