Tony Hawk's Proving Ground (Xbox 360)

 

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 Hawks Pro Skater HD Review

 

Just thinking I'm a Superman.

Tons of single-player and multiplayer content; The best levels from THPS 1 and 2; New modes for multiplayer

But where's the rest of the soundtrack?; Skate to skate, not for the sponsors; The 360 D-pad (wait for PS3); Chad Muska gone missing; I had to shoot a puppy

That's not to say that Robomodo hasn't added a slew of excellent new menu features, including detailed maps of all the levels that are easily accessible in the pause menu and a checklist for every level's extensive gaps.

I find it hard to believe that when the developers of the Tony Hawk franchise first sat down and came up with the idea that it would spawn eight sequels...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground Review

 

After years of doing the same basic tricks, with only minor changes with each passing iteration, Tony Hawk's skateboarding series is ready for a reboot. Following on the heels of the critically acclaimed Skate, is Proving Ground's reinvention of the...

Once in the game, gamers start a branching storyline that takes you in three separate directions as a skater. Gamers are now in control of what type of skater they become. Gamers choose to do objectives to improve their status as rigger, career, or...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Tony Hawk and James Bond have a lot in common. On the surface, they seem totally different. For starters, they're from different countries. There's also the little matter of one being a government agent, and the other a professional skater. Digging a...

Proving Ground begins like many skateboarding game predecessors, starring you as an up and coming skater trying to perfect his craft and move up in the eyes of his fellow skaters. You begin by creating…well, creating isn't exactly the right word since...

One of the biggest additions is the rigger menu. Introduced and later expanded in the rigger career path, this menu allows you to construct your own objects, such as quarter pipes and kickers, allowing you to create mini skate parks pretty much...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

 

The Tony Hawk series has been a fruitful one for Activision. It's spawned ten titles since the days of the Nintendo 64 and has dominated the genre until Skate was released recently. While American Wasteland was moderately popular in the early days of...

Conclusion Despite the vast variety of gameplay features to explore in Tony Hawk: Proving Ground, I found myself wanting a less skill-specific, more rewarding experience. The controls were too unforgiving and the difficulty was set far too high in...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground 360 Rev..

 

Proving Ground is the same old song and dance, but is it such a bad thing if the fun is still there? Sorta.

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground is a game that is stuck in the rut of its predecessors. It is delivering basically the same type of gameplay as it has for years with a few tweaks here and there. The beauty is the career options and the new Nail moves. But...

Tony Hawk's Proving Ground review for the XBOX360

 

Barely flyin'.

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

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

Nevertheless, I spend so much time criticizing this game only because the core mechanics are so good. These have remained unchanged throughout the whole series and anyone who has mastered them will enjoy some of the new uses to which they are put this...

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.
