Tony Hawk’s Project 8
This is by far the BEST Tony Hawk game yet. It’s fun and entertaining, the graphics are amazing, it has amazing new features and the story is awesome. Although we have only played about 3 levels on the game and Im sure we’re only done like 10% of it, its extraordinary. First of all- you’re in a group of 200 people, and you have to get to the top 8 rankings to get into the Project 8. Currently we’re about #40, but we’re steadily moving up.
Awesome New Features:
– You no longer have to find the marker or person to begin a goal, you can start a goal off the pause menu by selecting the one that you want.
-Quick bail recovery. I know that you know what Im talking about – the older games would get so incredibly frustrating when you;re in the middle of a goal and you bail; you’re yelling at the guy to get up because he’s taking so long to drag his ass off the ground. Well in this one, there is a quick bail recovery where all you do is press Y when you bail and you’re immediatley on your board again.
– Close of custom tricking. During this game you can click in the sticks and custom your own ticks, all you need to do is jump in the air and then away you go. You use the left stick to control the left leg and right for right. You can do the usual heelflip, kickflip, impossible flip tricks or you can switch it up and make your own.
– Awesome new menu features that give you video previews of the goals and gaps, which we all know is extremely helpful.
This game is fun to play alone or in a group, and it has all the qualities that a skateboarding game should have. One downside; Im not sure if this is because we havent got far enough on the game, but so far there isnt a wide selection of clothes, accessories or new boards to choose from. You earn stokens by doing tricks and you can spend those, but there isnt a good selection. I’ll keep you posted though, let you know if something opens up further along.
We completed most of this game- i think. We made it to what we think is the final level – we also managed to get into the top 8 – we are actually in 2nd place. We have pretty much given up on this game though – its gotten to the point when the complication level exceeds the entertainment.
Towards the end of the game – 8/10
