At the tender, young age of ten, I wanted to become a professional skateboarder. The idea of extreme sports was beginning to take shape and find an audience back in those days. My parents, in an effort to humor my suicidal tendencies, got me my first deck for Christmas that same year."

Overall: This game is basically a rivalry between you and your team known as Team Hawk against Bam Margera and his Team Bam. The whole thing is called the World Destruction Tour. During the game you go to different places all around the world performing crazy feats that would get you a broken neck out on the streets. One of the additions that Neversoft added to this game is the move called the "Sticker Slap." This move isn't just there to make a sticker appear. It also sends you flying in the opposite direction at a pretty good rate of speed. This is really good for continuing a grind once you hit the wall. Among things that were added/improved is the transporters that are located on certain levels. Most of them have launching capabilities that give you the option to do kick !&%$@#* things such as one in Barcelona that sends you flying out of an AC duct. When you do this one, you find yourself flung out into the water. This gives you the opportunity to grind on a rope to get back to the level. really good stuff. There are many other levels that you can do sick trick combos in and manuals that would make Tony Hawk himself cry.
Gameplay: Awesome gameplay that keeps you addicted. Also, there's a great storyline. The gameplay is surprisingly easy to adapt to if you've ever played a Tony Hawk game before.
Graphics: Great graphics and lots of characters. The environments also look great. There's awesome sky textures and the lighting effects are simply amazing.
Sound: For a normal setup it's good. I haven't been able to test it on a 5.1 sound system yet. It's probably just as good if not better. Most likely better.
Suggestions: Impress me with the next one as much as you did with this one. There were awesome additions and great levels.

Date reviewed: January 21, 2005.

Overall: Neversoft's 6th game in the highly sucessful Tony Hawk series puts you back on the streets on the World destruction tour. The story this time around isn't as, "Zero to hero" as last time, nor is it as &quo but, gameplay, level design, and crisp graphics deliver in a very good continuation of the series.
Gameplay: If you've ever played a Tony Hawk's game before, you will know of the frantic "UP/RIGHT, B, B, RIGHT TRIGGER/ UP, DOWN" gameplay that is in store for you. There are a few new moves, nameley the natas spin, Graffiti tagging and a whole heap of new special moves. Its fun and frustrating but once you have 100%ed this game you'll be a proud man. (or woman but that is highly unlikely)
Graphics: As you would expect from this type of game, the graphics aren't a dazzling display of the Xbox's processing power, but they are smooth and clean. The character animations are convincing and the pro skaters faces are very well rendered. I especially like it when you attempt your first darkslide put your board evades you so it ends up in a nut slide. It's quite true to life.. (Unlike the physics)
Sound: Sound is where THUG 2 really stands out. Every ramp, rail, and bail sounds perfect and the music is a smooth mix of punk, rock, and rap. But best of all is the seemingly forgotten custom soundrtacks! There is nothing like skating to "Heaven is a Halfpipe"
Suggestions: Make Easy easier, and sick sicker!
