In order to keep the series from running out of steam, Activision decided add a "story mode" to the game. You start out as an unknown everyday skater who dreams of turning pro. There are plenty of "story scenes", starring you as the main character. As you progress through the game, new levels open up, and the drama of becoming a pro skater unfolds before you. All of this is a little bit cheesy, but nevertheless makes for an entertaining game to play.
Let me hit on the positives first. The "story mode" of the game does add a decent amount to the game experience. I found myself continuing to play so that I could find out what happens next. Also, the graphics are more detailed and the sounds are taken up a couple of notches as well. The levels are huge with lots of obstacles and spines to skate. All your favorite pros are back, with a couple of new ones thrown in too. However, the only levels you can play with one of the regular pro skaters are the levels you have opened up in story mode. Just so you know.
And now the negatives...
Not much to say here. While the story mode adds to the game, it isn't realistic. The same thing goes for quite a few of the "goals" you have to achieve. They have more in common with Grand Theft Auto than skateboarding. That aspect is probably the strangest part of the game. I guess the creators wanted some stuff in there that would appeal to that type of audience.
Anyway, I would rate this game a 9 out of possible 10.

If you thought Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 was a phenomonal experience, wait till THUG comes out. Sorry to say, the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series are dead, but think of THUG as a perminent substitute... and maybe a slight (yeah right) variation of Tony Hawk 5 where you (yes you) are the undisputed star in this game and can now WALK (yes walk, like on a road) without your board! Some of the biggest changes in THUG are undeniably the fact you can now walk, grapple, dangle, shimmy, jump, and run throughtout a level to find new and hidden areas or to accomplish a goal. Another new aspect, is that you can now gain sponsors unlike its predecessors, Tony Hawk 1, 2, 3, and 4. And no longer is Tony Hawk the star, but you are. Tony's in the game, but you are the one who gains sponsors, YOU are the one who completes tasks, YOU are the one to make it to the big time, YOU are the one who must start at the bottom of the food chain, YOU are the one who will get new boards, decks, locations, levels, etc. and YOU are the one who is the star. Literally, you are the star; for Sony PS2 owners, you will be able to take a picture of your face using a digital camera, send it to Neversoft (or upload in the game, I'm not sure), and have them place YOUR face on your created skater! Now, I'm not completely sure if this is only limited to PS2 owners only, but it will be a fun experience. Like I said, you start at the bottom, meaning Jersey. Why Jersey? I'm not completely sure, but from there, you'll help out local cops to bring down a banner (or something) to gain access to a whole new part of the level, impress backyard skaters on their modified pipes, chase a renegade (or stolen) SUV by stealing a car on the side of the street, post up flyers (or fliers, whatever) for the local skateshop, and much more.Read more ›

Note that this review is geared toward previous Tony Hawk 3 and 4 players.
THUG is another addition to the Tony Hawk series, and focuses on a story line instead of the more open ended goal-orientated features of previous games. You can only use your Create a Skater in this game, but he eventually becomes functionally equivalent to any of the Pros in other TH games. Game plot involves you rising from the kid nobody street skater in the middle of nameless town New Jersey, to gaining fame and fortune and going Pro by showing everyone else how good you are.
All your standard tricks are in this version, and the create-a-trick feature is fun but requires alot of practice to make a trick that both looks interesting and isn't impossible to pull off. Create-a-park is also back with the addition of letting you set custom goals. Online play is also included.
The single-player story line is cliched and unrealistically annoying at times. You're often required to perform tons of very simple tasks in order to continue the story, and skill points are handled differently here. You can't buy skill points as in previous games, instead you have to perform stunts and use tricks in order to gain points. Sounds good on paper but in practice it can be fiendishly difficult to grind for 15 seconds to gain 1 grind point when you have so few points to help you out with at the start, or to do 900 spins when the opening levels have few massive quarterpies. You are also limited to gaining too many points in the opening chapters of the story. At the game start, you can only gain a few points (doing very basic tasks, like a 5 second Manual or a few air tricks in 1 combo) until you progress the story enough to beat an "Amateur" level competition.
