5.0 out of 5 stars Wasteland cleans up the series October 23, 2005
Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Seven years ago, skateboarding became a game genre with Pro Skater. Every year after that, new additions and refined gameplay kept me playing all four Pro Skaters and both Undergrounds. In all of those years, nothing has impressed me more than Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. Somehow Neversoft has done it; they've made the perfect skating game.

I'll skip telling the story, since it's basically the same "get respect" crap that was in the Underground games, and also because the gameplay has been refined to the point of perfection. Neversoft saw it coming--they've outdone themselves and done everything to skateboarding that they could. So other than a few interesting additions to the skateboarding formula (like board stalls, bert slides, and parkour), and the ability to ride and trick on BMX bikes, the coolest addition is the free-sprawling recreation of Los Angeles that serves as the world of THAW. The city is divided into sections, which takes away from some of the huge feel, but I still felt overwhelmed at first by the size of the world. This world is so much fun to skate in that I basically neglected the fact that the story mode goals are terribly easy and repetitive, but serve their purpose in unlocking huge portions of an even larger world.

The controls are spot-on, the combos are still fun, and that's what keeps me coming back to this series. As a note to Neversoft, I don't care about epic storylines and I'm happy with the removal of Bam Margera from the story in general. I'm pleased, as a fan of this series, that I finally have a Hawk game that has the moves, the good controls, and the levels (well, the level) that can keep me playing for another year or two until another boarding game rolls up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, tired, old looking game March 12, 2006
Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I really wanted to like THAW. I'd played THUG et al and enjoyed them for what they were, but I really expected American Wasteland to step up to the plate and add something to the TH games.

After all, the TV ads hinted at a GTA3 style of gameplay - lots of exploring across the entire west coast with the freedom to go where you want and no loading times. I had visions of jumping from skyscrapers, skating for hours down streets, going where I want - when I want. After a few minutes play though, the reality sinks in. There's no freedom, no massive free-flowing levels, just the same enclosed levels you've played many times before. Level load times are replaced by dull, pointless empty interior corridors and tunnels which serve NO purpose - no plot advances, scores or interaction happen in them. You simply plod through to the next small claustrophobic enclosed level.

Gameplay things fair little better. In story mode you usually have to perform 3 or 4 tricks to 'advance' things a little. This soon proves massively tedious as should you fail anyone of the tricks at any time during the 'mission', you will have to start again. So you listen to the bad acting, watch the awful lipsyncing and terrible out-of-place body movements. Sure you can skip each sentence, but you have to endure the animations - over and over and over again until you manage to perform the exact sequence of button presses the game is expecting from you, sometimes within a 5 second time limit or less. As a player you only do it to open up new levels, not because it's fun. Frustration rapidly overtakes ANY enjoyment gleaned playing the silly challenges in story mode.

And so you turn to classic mode for relief. Except in classic mode the level loading is back! Yup, no tunnels for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tony Hawk Online December 30, 2005
By V. Wei
Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Tony Hawk American Wasteland is another good addition to the Tony Hawk collection. Story Mode is way less cheesy as the THUG story mode and the plot is more interesting. I've enjoyed all the Tony Hawk games except for THUG 2. Live has revolutionized the Tony Hawk games now that all Tony Hawk fans can compete online. You can also just chill with other people while you skate as well.

I would recommend getting this Tony Hawk game if you want to compete on Live.

3.0 out of 5 stars umm...ok. July 8, 2006
By AK
Platform for Display:Xbox
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
this game was alright. i've been playing tony hawk games since thps2. this game is nothing special, i'd rather play thug1 because that at least has jamie thomas. the only things i thought that were cool is the new spray feature where you can spray the ground, and the few new moves. the new no load screen feature is a joke because you still have to change areas with a loading screen in multi-player. also i didn't really get into the soundtrack i guess because i have this version. also why didn't activision keep the create a deck mode the same as thug1 why did they change during thug2? after thug1 the tony hawk games have been going down hill and have had a cliche story mode. all in all this is pretty much a clone of thug2, it's just a dressed up version of that.
