Tony Hawk's Proving Ground (PlayStation 3)

 

Not many franchises can say that they single-handedly launched a genre, but that's exactly what Neversoft's Tony Hawk series did back in 1999. Annual sequels have come ever since, some of which have made major changes to the skateboarding formula,...

Tony Hawk appeared on the Xbox 360 last year, but Tony Hawk's Project 8 marks the first time that the series has been built from the ground up for the current generation of consoles. As you might expect, not being saddled with the constraints of the...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground Review for the PS3

 

Barely flyin'.

Delays Tony's fall.; Untouched core gameplay; Improved "Nail The..." mode

Clunky rigging controls; Frustrating photo shoots; Overcrowded, dull environments

Expert review by:

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

 

The Tony Hawk franchise has been around since 1999, and with Tony Hawk's Proving Ground, it's reaching its ninth installment. With Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 however, the game reached a near perfect pinnacle. The following rehashes have added small bits of...

Solid gameplay, which you'd expect at this point in the series' life, but it just doesn't bring enough new or innovative features to keep you interested, especially with a competitor as good as skate.

Expert review by:

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

 

Neversoft's new Hawk title feels like the most phoned-in one yet.

Arcade is a great throwback to the series' glory days; video editor is great; smooth online multiplayer; improved Nail the Trick

Story mode is rather joyless and unexciting; Rigger career path feels useless; feels rushed and lacks polish of past Hawk games

Expert review by:

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

 

Older, trickier, more feature-packed and a bit intimidating

Crammed with innovative features ; New modes are welcome additions ; Seeing the Hawkman return to form

Slowly unlocking features ; Some graphical rough patches ; Might be daunting for newbies

Product Specifications

The Tony Hawk's Project 8 game challenges players to experience the intensity and pressure of skating against some of the world's top pros in true to life competitions as they aim to become the number 1 skater. With an entirely new gameplay engine, the trick-based gameplay features amazing, detailed character animations that react realistically on and off their boards, a new physics system, an innovative bail mode, and the ability to move ramps and rails throughout the city.
