STAFF REVIEW of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2x (Xbox)

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2x Box art For the record, this game is NOT just a PS2 or Dreamcast port, like some others games coming to the Xbox. It takes advantage on the Xbox?s powers, networking and graphics. Hear me out, I own Tony Hawk 2 for the Dreamcast, so for someone to just add ?X? on the end the title, it better be good. Let me share with you what they?ve added, 5 new levels, plus all the levels from Tony 1 & 2!, plus a multiplayer module (you need the system link cable), and many people already have started playing up to 8 skaters online via GameSpy!, and 4 players split screen. The skate park editor has also been improved which includes female skaters and few other things. The graphics have gotten a total kick in the butt that takes full advantage of the Xbox killer graphics power. Overall, this is a great buy for people have either never played the Tony Hawk series, or the hardcore fan. You won?t notice much if already own or played lots Tony Hawk 2 on any other console, except for the new levels.


In the tradition of the Tony Hawk series the consoles are very easy to get familiar with, even if you?ve never stepped on a skate board in your dear life! The part I really like about this game is that you can look good, even if you are not! Thus, you must do the big trick to get the big points. Small tricks mean small points?so you must go big or go home! Personally, as I said before I?ve never been on a skate board (once and fell on my a**), but this game is not a simulation-type game. Thank god! I?ve haven?t played this multiplayer yet, but I can?t imagine this being a pile of huge fun like Halo to play multiplayer. The idea of hanging out with your thrashing dudes, bustin? some air, online. Hmmm.. Maybe it?s just me. But, none the less, this game is really fun.


At first glance it looks just like the Dreamcast. The graphics is where you noticed why they brought this title to the Xbox. The grass is rendered beautifully, and if you get close enough, you?ll see each blade of grass. WOW, the Xbox does pop out fantastic visuals. The level that really shows off the Xbox?s true power is the bar level, where the disco light bounce all over the place, very nice indeed. My Dreamcast never was able to do that. The game also appears to push at least 30 frames per second very easily. All and all the graphics rock!


The sound, what do say about the sounds? Hmmm?the music is good, not great. It gets a little monotonous at times. The sound effects are good, but I honestly don?t know what a person sounds like dropping at 50 feet from a roof. (-: Overall the sound is in my opinion average.


Suggestions:
Can't wait to see Tony Hawk 3. Different levels, and maybe some commentary from Tony himself?


Overall: 8.0 / 10
Gameplay: 9.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 6.0 / 10
