Tony Hawk’s Underground Summary

Often considered one of the best games in the entire franchise, Tony Hawk’s Underground is the 5th game in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series and the follow-up to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 4. Underground marks a dramatic shift in the Tony Hawk series by being the first game to put players inside of an open-world. Likely inspired by the success of the Grand Theft Auto series, Tony Hawk’s Underground allows players to skate around massively open-world levels, talk to NPCs, and even skitch on the back of cars to get around town.

Similar to previous games in the series, players can create and customize their own skater, albeit with significantly more options. Additionally, players have the option of slecting from any number of noteworthy professional skateboarders. Both Tony Hawk’s Underground and its direct sequel were massive successes. Reviewers praise the title for its soundtrack, customization, and revitalization of the Tony Hawk series formula. Still, some were critical of the game’s controls, citing that all non-skating movement is less mechanically sound.

Tony Hawk's Underground gameplay

As one of the best-reveiwed games in the entire series, Tony Hawk’s Underground also has a continued cult following to this day. Fan and critical appreciation of the game led to it winning several awards the year of its release and selling over 2 million copies. Many consider Tony Hawk’s Underground and its sequel to be the last great Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series until the remakes of THPS 1 + 2.

Tony Hawk’s Underground Premise

Tony Hawk's Underground gameplay

Players begin Tony Hawk’s Underground as a young skateboarder who shares dreams with their friend Eric of going pro. The protagonist is completely customizable in terms of appearance and clothing, while Eric remains a preset character. During the early parts of the game, the protagonist catches the attention of professional skateboarders and gets their first sponsorship. As the protagonist sees their skateboarding career take off, their friend Eric grows apart and begins to resent the protagonist’s success. THUG is the first game in the series to feature an overarching plot and specific characters.

Similar to every other game in the series, THUG is a skateboarding game first and foremost despite the introduction of an open world. Skateboarding controls are similar to past entries as well, with momentum (pushing forward) occurring automatically and players pressing a button to jump. After jumping (known as an “Ollie”) on the board, different combinations of directional pad inputs and button presses facilitate various grabs and flips. Players can also grind on narrow surfaces by Ollying onto them and pressing the appropriate button. While grinding, players must maintain balance of their character otherwise they will bail.

The levels in THUG are significantly larger than any of the skating arenas from past Tony Hawk games. This facilitates the open-world sections of gameplay where players get off their board and travel on foot or drive a car. Like levels from previous games, players can skateboard on virtually any surface and can collect challenges littered around the map. Exploring levels on foot allows players to reach new, undiscovered locations that often house secrets or additional skateboarding challenges.
