When it comes to skateboarding games, there is only one series which has the renown and fan following – those bearing Tony Hawk’s name.
Tony Hawk’s skateboarding series is well-known on the Playstation, but not so on the PC. In fact, often they were ports of the Playstation versions. But whether you play it on the pc or Playstation, there’s this very strong addictive feature only present in this game.
The game is basically an action game whereby you use your skateboard to complete challenges. These challenges involve racking up points by stringing up your tricks, or doing certain feats, all of which keep you on a certain level for an hour or so. That’s exactly the reason why it’s so much fun. By challenging yourself to beating your previous attempt, you get rewards such as powerups for your character’s stats and at the same time, unlocking new stages with new challenges.
The game played well on a netbook after lowering it to 640×480 and reducing the draw distance to a minimum. It becomes quite ugly, but nonetheless playable, although it does suffer from some slowdown at various times. Also, there is no way to play the game in widescreen
But THU2 is a game that doesn’t have to look good to play good. Its tried-and-tested concept has been used for generations of Tony Hawk games and it still impresses.
