What you're looking at here is one of the finest wrestling
games ever to be released. Gone are the dismal memories of
those crappy Raw games released on the Xbox; they can't hurt
you anymore. Even with its hard-htting excellence there is
still room for improvement and we're darn sure that Yukes
and THQ will exploit the next gen systems to deliver just
that in the coming years.
You can't get more "Xtreme" than the X-games man
himself, Tony Hawk. Evolving the formula even further from
the Underground games, Project 8 simultaneously gave fans
more of what they wanted while raising the benchmark of their
expectations. We're not sure where Tony Hawk and his series
will go from here, but we're kind of wondering if the guys
at Neversoft are allowed to leave the building... we're guessing
It doesn't have the nicest graphics, the games aren't particularly
deep, the player models are simplistic and the sound is 'meh'
...so why can we not stop playing this game? We think Nintendo
found the ingredient that makes people crave KFC for a fortnight
and sprinkled it into each Wii Sports title. Even though she
ain't a looker, she sure is a player. Playing Wii Sports with
the Wii-mote is unlike anything we've experienced and that's
why we keep coming back. You will too. The fact that it's
free in North America makes us all feel a little special.
The 'good' special.
Who got their SSX mixed up with my Tony Hawk? Looks like
Vicarious Visions is the culprit.We didn't think this kind
of bizarre hybrid of game would work with Tony Hawk, but it
turns out we were wrong. Downhill Jam is a lot of fast-paced
fun once you wrap your noggin around the fact that this isn't
your typical Tony Hawk game. We're also very pleased to announced
that the DS version looks as great as it plays.
