Up until Tony Hawk Underground (THUG) the series enjoyed a steady upward evolution. Although THUG saw some improvements, the graphics and skate venues suddenly went from clean and sharp in Tony Hawk 4 to dingy and forgettable. The goal may have been to create a gritty world but for me it just looked dirty and rushed. Perhaps it's the stress of trying to put out a new game every year but after Tony Hawk 4 the series seemed much less polished. The addition of non-skateboard modes of travel seemed shallow and tacked on and wouldn't have been so bad if they weren't required to complete the game. The driving portions seemed like they were created in about 10 minutes. THUG 2 introduced a new aspect to the series, a disturbing mean spiritedness. The nastiness continues in THAW and even increases giving players the ability to actually smack their skateboard upside a persons head.

Tony Hawk American Wasteland is an improvement on the two THUG games but still leaves a bit to be desired. The game still seems rushed with bugs and occasional stutters in the frame rate. Some of the tricks have gotten so esoteric to have reached the level of bizarre. The biggest problem is that some of the tricks are absolutely essential in completing the game and some are REALLY hard and this is from a person who has completed 6 versions of Tony Hawk. I am currently COMPLETELY stuck trying to do a manual for what looks like about a half a mile of curvy path.

On the upside THAW has six great levels of Classic Tony Hawk that make me long for the old days. There is a significant amount of BMX biking which although inferior to skateboarding is better than the dismal attempts in THUG to incorporate alternate vehicles.

My 11 year old played this game at a friend's house and saved up his money to purchase this game. He was protective of his little sisters and brother by picking this over some of the others. First, this one has girls in it, where other Tony Hawk games do not and he wanted his sister's to have an opportunity to make girl skaters when they are old enough to play. Also, you can turn off the blood that spurts out when people fall off their boards. It also does not contain the graffiti with profanity in the way that others do. We limit the play of this game though b/c we do have younger kids in the house. It seems to be the "cleanest" of the Tony Hawk games and my son loves to be able to make his own skate parks and test them.

I bought this game for my teenage son. My son loved the game. The only problem he had with it was that it was easy to beat. He beat the game in a little over a few days. He did enjoy the game quite a bit. I would recommend it but beware there may not be much play time if you spend a lot of time playing it.

I recent dusted off my old gamecube and played some of my old favorites. Sadly, most of them didn't hold up well tot he test of test, but I was glad that this one did .... mostly.

The graphics and story mechanisms are bad, really bad. But the controls are fun. Playing this again reminded me why I liked this skate board games to begin with. Simple is better.

5 stars, it came on time and the product worked fine. This is my second time using this vendor and I recommend them for quality. The only issue I can think of is it came in a paper sleeve and a case would be nice but no big deal, also shipping says 1-2 days in the beginning screen then when you purchase it shipping dates are 6-7 days away. No big deal though solid experience.

I used to own this game as a kid then I sold for some reason. I had just re-bought this game and man is it great! All of the customization is great. You can customize your own skater,tricks, maps,etc. This game is very easy to pick up and play. After a few minutes I was doing a whole bunch of tricks. I definitely recommend you spend a few bucks on this because very penny is worth it!

Activision has been spitting out Tony Hawk games every year now for about 7 or 8 years. If my tally is correct there are 5 pro skater games, 2 thug titles, and now American Wasteland. These titles span all the major systems. And you don't need be a rocket scientist to figure out why; the Pro Skater series has made tons and tons of money. Only problem is, they have essentially released the same game time and again, coming up with different titles in recent years to help keep the whole thing fresh.

American Wasteland is simply Tony Hawk's Pro Skater with a bike thrown in for a gimmicky distraction. The same cheesy storyline is presented once again; unrealistic characters with insulting wardrobes parade through the game.

On the good side, the skating is top notch and very fluid. Lots of fun stuff to skate however some of these levels have appeared in at least 2 other Hawk titles. Talk about recycling.
There are a few different pros this time around, at least I think so. I stopped paying a lot of attention the last couple games.

All in all this series is reaching a point of stagnation. Kinda like a singer with one hot single but nothing else of interest; he soon finds himself in the bargain bin once the single falls off the charts.
