Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Get the game at!

Reviewed by PlunX Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is a game that revolves around skate boarding (riding and doing stunts). Tony Hawk isn't the only skater in the game, however. There are many other characters, as well as a few hidden characters that you get as you advance through the game. In each stage (arena) you must find video tapes. The more video tapes you get, the more arenas and secrets are available. In order to get these tapes, you must exceed certain goals in each arena, such as hitting 5 boxes, finding each letter of the word "S-K-A-T-E", and getting a certain amount of points (accumulated by doing stunts) in a limited amount of time. In each arena, there are rails, quarter-pipes, half-pipes, pools, and other obstacles. There are dozens of different tricks and combos that can be done off of the ramps.

Graphics 10 out of 10

The graphics in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater are excellent. They're very crips, and there is very little fog. Even though the camera angles can become annoying at times, you can usually make out which way you're going. The details in the game are also excellent. From the boards to the ramps, they look almost real. If you're looking for a boarding game with good graphics, this might just be the one for you.

Music and Sound 9 out of 10

The music score in this game is great, even though I've only heard a couple of the tunes outside of the game. They're almost all punk and ska songs, with a fast beat (good boarding themes). The sound effects in this game are excellent, sounding almost real.

Game Challenge 8 out of 10

Once you get the hang of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, it's not that hard to beat the game. There are only 5 tapes in each stage, and you have to do almost the same thing in each stage to get the tapes. But, it does take some time to obtain these tapes, and I'm almost certain that it'll take you a couple of sittings to get past the first few arenas.

Game Play-Fun 10 out of 10

Personally, I had a wonderful time playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. I'm a skate boarder myself, and I think that it's about time that a decent skate boarding game has hit the consoles. And, it's even better than the game is almost real, and actually gives you the feel of grinding on the rails and doing methods off the top of a quarter-pipe.


To tell you the complete truth, even though it took me a while to learn how to do certain tricks, I was never once frustrated with the game. The game doesn't throw your lose in your face if you don't exceed a certain task, and just lets you try as many times as you want. The game is almost a skate boarding adventure game, letting you advance as you gain more tapes.

Replayability 10 out of 10

Even after beating this game, I kept playing, trying to get more and more points, and just trying to get excellent combos. I'm sure that you won't stop playing this game after you beat it.

Game Value 10 out of 10

I don't currently have this game, but I have rented it twice from Blockbuster. I'd say that the most that I'd pay for this game is $49.99.

Overall 10 out of 10

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is the best skate boarding game that I've played since Skate or Die (heheheh). The tricks are excellent, the graphics are excellent... The whole game is excellent. If you're a sports fan or a boarder, I'm sure that you'll get a real kick out of this game.
