- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (2000 on Game Boy Color)
Description official descriptions
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is a skateboarding simulation in which you control a famous skate star around 3D environments. Each game area contains a plethora of objects like ramps, rails, and half-pipes which can be used to perform tricks. Each trick you perform earns you more points for your score.
The game is divided into two types of levels. In the first, you skate around locations like a mall, a city street, or a warehouse. In each of these areas, there are 5 goals to complete. Some goals involve obtaining a high score, others smashing objects and some collecting objects. For every goal you complete, you earn a videotape. By collecting enough videotapes, you unlock levels and skateboards for you to use. There are 6 levels like this. The second type of level is competition. You get to make 3 timed runs through a skate park and attempt to get the highest score possible. If you do well enough, you will beat the scores of the computer-controlled skaters and win a medal. There are 3 levels like this.
There are nine real-life pro skaters you can choose to play as, including Tony Hawk himself. Each skater has their own signature moves that earn you big points if pulled off successfully.

Everything. The controls are surprisingly easy and the graphics are excellent. Great soundtrack (although I did turn it off after awhile), great gameplay, and an amazing amount of replayability make this an excellent purchase and a must have for any Dreamcast owner.
The menus were a little annoying.
The Bottom Line
A really good skateboarding game that even a non skateboarder could love.

I liked: It's a skateboarding game/ It has my hometown in it (Minneapolis, MN)/ It's got a good selection of skaters/ The music is great
I didn't like: No manuals/ Shaky controls on PlayStation/ It tries too hard to be realistic/ There aren't enough bonuses/ Bad SFX
The Bottom Line
It's worth buying if you love the Tony Hawk Series and want a complete collection. It's a fairly solid game, despite the limitation that it wasn't made more recently for GameCube, Xbox, and PS2.
