The PlayStation version of this game, months after release, is still in the top 10. That alone should tell you something. The fact that the Nintendo version, a few audio quibbles aside, is even better should tell you even more. Tony Hawk is that rarest of gaming phenomena -- a title that stands out on its own merits. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is all about innovation, style and depth. Tony Hawk is one of the best games on the Nintendo 64 -- and we mean up there with Mario, Zelda and Wave Race.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is perhaps the best Playstation to N64 port ever. Frankly, I just don't have enough words to describe how pleasing it is to see that so much time and care has gone into what is too often a rushed afterthought. Fans of the original will love it, newcomers will love it, skaters and non-skaters alike will love it...heck, even your mom will love it. I know mine does.
This is the best skating game that has come out so far, and probably will be until its sequel is released. It looks much better than it's PlayStation original, and the only thing different is the CD quality tracks that were on the PSX version. It is definitely a fun game to have, and I find myself going through career mode even five months of it's release to try out different skaters and to try and improve on my overall skills. As I mentioned before, each run is always something new, which adds to the replay value of the game as well as the well-executed multiplayer mode. Unless you've played massive amounts of the PSX version I would suggest that you definitely purchase this game if you have any remote interest in skating, or even if you don't.
One drawback to this game is that the controls can get a bit confusing, but this mirrors the sport itself. Practice makes perfect, and it's pretty obvious that Neversoft, the creators of Pro Skater, have been practicing a lot.

With the two-player mode, you'll find that Graffiti is wickedly delightful, Trick Attack will appeal to your ego, and Horse is highly original. Yes, two-player games are just as fun and addicting, if not more so, as the one-player modes. Whether you actually skate or not, if you like fun, addicting games, then you must add Tony Hawk's Pro Skater to your collection.
Oczywiście gra dla wielkich fanów deskorolki może wydawać się mało realistyczna. Upadek z takiej wysokości, a on wstaje, nawet się nie otrzepuje i jedzie dalej? Czy też przejścia między karkołomnymi sztuczkami wydają się nadzwyczaj łatwe, ale ja takim fanem nie jestem i nie dla realizmu wybrałem tę grę. Laikom Tony przybliża swój świat i zapewnia przy tym rozrywkę na najwyższym poziomie. Dla mnie Tony Hawk Pro Skater jest jak najbardziej godny uwagi i zapewni zajęcie na wiele godzin nawet po ukończeniu całości. Będą obszary, do których chętnie wrócimy odkryjemy miejsca, które wcześniej nam umknęły. Dowodem świetności może być fakt, że obecnie nawet tylko w czerni i bieli sięgnąlem po ten tytuł i zgłębiam go na nowo. Zachęcam wszystkich do wzięcie pada w łapę i jazdy próbnej na jedynej bezkontuzyjnej deskorolce świata.
There is no way to cushion the obvious: Pro Skater on the N64 is about 30 percent slower than the PlayStation game that spawned this conversion. The only reason I mention this is because it will affect veterans and newbies alike. For the sages, you will struggle to get your favorite skater to complete some of the nicer tricks you have wired, and to the first-timers, you will encounter a false sense of excitement compared to what is expected on the PS, making you wonder what the talk was about. The game still moves at a tolerable speed, but not enough to generate constant tension.
