Summary

Best Tony Hawk game yet

The Good

This game is actually a huge step forward from the previous Tonk Hawk games. It features an actual storyline and plot (a surprisingly well written and interesting one, I might add), unlike it's predecessors. Another step up is the ability to get off your board, which makes it easier to get to hard-to-reach places and to some awesome tricks and combos. Not to mention the new combos and tricks.

The Bad

Even the Create-a-Trick feature was kind of cool, it really didn't allow you to truly create your own trick. It was really just slapping together some premade movements with some spins.

The Bottom Line

If you like the Tonk Hawk games, get this one. It's got all the old ones have to offer and a whole lot more. If you have never played any of the Tony Hawk games, it might be hard to play any of the originals because you will definitely be spoiled with all it's fancy features.
