Official description
Tear up the asphalt with the speed and agility of a seasoned pro in the ultimate skateboarding experience. Skate as champion Tony Hawk, with all the insane and technical moves that mark his signature style--or as one of eight other big-name skateboarders. Work your way up the ranks, performing suicidal stunts and entering brutal competitions in an effort to become the highest-rated skate champ. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. It's time to go pro. Skate as Hawk: Perform the radical moves of the most famous skateboarder in the world--Tony Hawk. He not only "stars" in the game, his design contributions lends authenticity to Pro Skater's gameplay style. Plus, try out the signature tricks of eight other recognized pros, including Bob Burnquist, Kareem Campbell, Rune Glifberg, Bucky Lasek, Chad Muska, Andrew Reynolds, Geoff Rowley, and Jamie Thomas. Fully Skateable, Interactive World: Ride multiple, realistic vert courses, including skate parks, pool parks, downhill courses and half-pipes, plus street courses, such as a school, a downtown area and a shopping mall. Each non-linear path is littered with secret areas, shortcuts, ramps, and interactive objects--allowing you to ride off of just about everything. Sophisticated Trick/Combo System: Pull off hundreds of motion-captured move combinations and stunts. Skate forwards, backwards and perform combos on-the-fly, including airs, grabs, slides, grinds, kick-flips, and landing tricks. An intuitive interface and easy learning curve allow you to gradually progress to more difficult moves. Intense Head-to-Head Competition: Take on two-player, split screen Point, Battle and Time Attack modes, the Half-Pipe Challenge, and a single-player career mode in which you perform stunts and enter competitions to become the top-ranked pro. For added realism, falls and accidents result in "face plants," scrapes and broken bones.
