When Tony Hawk first starts to hit the scene on the Sega Dreamcast, it changed the way people played and designed skating games. It successfully recreated all the exhilaration of skating and served it up from the vantage point of the couch, where countless players trained their thumbs to perform amazing acrobatic feats. We feared that the excitement of Tony Hawk might be lost in its transition to the N-Gage, but thankfully developers Ideaworks 3D! have ported Tony to the handheld with much success. Now as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater debuts on the Nokia N-Gage, players can take their skilled thumbs back to the streets for a digital skating exhibition!

It may have been revolutionary, but that doesn't make it a great game
25 April 2004 | by bowser724See all my reviews

This game was produced for Game Boy Color, PlayStation, and Nintendo 64. I am reviewing the N64 and PSX versions. It's a game where you can play as your favorite professional skaters. That doesn't save this game from its annoying corniness, though. It may have Minneapolis in it, (close to where I live) but there are no manuals, hugely pixellated graphics, and the control is extremely hard; i.e. if you don't land perfectly, you collapse. It gets better every time there is a new game in the series, so I guess they had to start somewhere, but I think they could have upped the bar just a little bit. All the voices sound the same, except for Elissa Steamer. All the other characters just have the generic "male voice" plugged into them. This is the same on all of the PS1 versions. On the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube releases of THPS3 and 4, each character has his/her own voice. Well, overall 3/5.
