I played this game for the ps2 and it was great!I have heard that it will be the exact same thing on the Gamecube.The levels are huge and it is harder than the first two.In the career mode the goals are different for each charactar.This game is much better than x-games skateboarding,TRUST ME!!!

Not being a fan of extreme sports, I did not think I would enjoy the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series. However, a friend of mine got me hooked on Tony Hawk 2 for the Playstation and I was surprised at how much I thoroughly enjoyed it. So, once I got my GameCube, Tony Hawk 3 was the second game I bought (after Rogue Leader, obviously!!). I can say, unequivocally, that THPS 3 far surpasses its predecessors. Not only are levels and gameplay more appealing rewardingly challening, this game also benefits tremendously from being on the GameCube platform. I have played this game on PS2, as well, and it is a great deal more frustrating. The key to what makes the GameCube version of THPS 3 so much better is how it takes advantage of the asymmetrical control pad. Unlike the Playstation systems, GameCube's control buttons are set up in a manner where you do not need to be nearly as conscious of the buttons you are pressing, thereby freeing the player to focus more on what is happening on the screen (thus being more effective). The buttons on the GameCube control have different sizes, shapes and placements on the pad which allows the player to know which button does which simply by feel, as opposed to the Playstation buttons which are all the same except for the design on each of them (forcing the player to be conscious of what buttons he or she is pressing). Control issues aside, though, this game is fabulous. It's just challenging enough without being frustrating. I was personally able to accomplish 49 out of the 54 goals and got silver medals on the three competition levels before I had to resort to the cheats. Games like this (along with Rogue Leader), in my estimation, give GameCube the early leg up in the Next Generation system wars with X-Box and PS2.

If you are a fan of the other Tony Hawk games, rest assured you will love this one too. Don't even bother buying the PS2 version of this game, Gamecube is the only way to go. The graphics are better and the new create-a-skater options are superb. You can even change the pro's clothes and accesories This is one game that you should not hesitate on buying.

When I played THPS 2 for the Nintendo 64, I was blown away! The graphics and all the moves stunned me. I thought I was in heaven.
Oh, how I was wrong.
THPS 3 is THPS 2 to the 10th power. Every element of THPS 2 has been taken and supersized. With over 50 more tricks, all new levels, it can't get much better.
What makes the new Tony Hawk Skater game so awesome is it's increased gameplay features. In 1P mode, you can choose from:
Single session
Play any levels unlocked in career mode or any park you have created you self in the "Park Editor" mode. This allows you to get a taste of what career mode will be like without effecting your score.
Career mode
Play levels one at a time. After a certain number of goals are completed, a new level will unlock. In order, the levels are Foundry, (a construction place) Canada, (lots of snow, lots of rails) Rio, (A skating contest. If you get enough points and come in 3rd place a new level will be unlocked) Suburbia, (a quiet town) Airport, (Not the outside, just the inside) skaters island, (another skating contest) Los Angeles, then Tokyo. (The final skating contest.) And, once you complete 35 goals you unlock a special level where you are a cruise-ship (SWEEEEET!)
Free skate
Unlimited time. Just skate in any park created or level unlocked.
Tutorial
Learn some basics of the game. It's hosted by Tony Hawk himself.
In multiplayer (Only 2P maximum, which is still a downside) you can choose from games or just free skate. The games are:
Graffiti
By doing a trick off a certain object (Halfpipe, bench, trailer, ANYTHING!) it will turn to your color. If your opponent does a trick off the same object, but receives a higher score, it will turn to his/her color.

A Kid's Review on January 1, 2002
I have played THPS3 (along with the other two) and have concluded that it is a great game with a couple bad points:
Some bad points are that the gameplay is easy & repeatitive, which makes it a typical rental game; some modes are frustating (such as the park editor) for control reasons; and sometimes the blood effects go a bit too far (once you see your skater being dragged down a half pipe with a HUGE trail of blood marking where he or she bailed, you'll know what I mean).
Still, THPS3 has many delightful features. Civilians minding their own business in levels like Los Angeles give the game a more realistic feel; the soundtrack is much better than the last one with more recognizable artists; the create-a-skater and park editor features have more options; there are a lot more levels (which are much bigger & better); and the characters (including the 5+ secret ones) are much more detailed and realistic. Also, the objectives in career mode are very fun, unique, and creative.
In conclusion, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is a must-buy if you don't mind its cons.
