Retro Review: Tony Hawk's Skateboarding (2000) - Sega Dreamcast

My review of Tony Hawk's Skateboarding for Dreamcast, originally published in Official Dreamcast Magazine Issue 11 (September 2000). My review of NHL 2K was also featured in the same issue.

As if that wasn't enough, I was also picked as that issue's Have Your Say contributor (where I picked Black & White, Shenmue, Half-Life, Metropolis Street Racer and Ready 2 Rumble Boxing: Round 2 as my most wanted games) for which I received a Virtual Memory Unit.

This is the most addictive game that I have ever played on Dreamcast. The graphics are amazing and the gameplay is even better. Career mode is full of little challenges that encourage you to try over and over again to get that elusive tape to unlock the next level.

At two minutes per game, this is a title you can just pick up and play for a few minutes if you're bored, although it can actually turn into a much longer session. "Just one more go" has resulted in hours passing before I knew it.

Tony Hawk's Skateboarding is easy to pick up for both novice and experienced game players alike. Just a few minutes will see you zooming around the Warehouse level performing all manner of exciting tricks, before landing unceremoniously on your head after a particularly difficult trick goes horribly wrong!

This is not a game to be played quietly. You find yourself leaping around and yelling after finding a hidden tape or completing a level, and I've often caught myself singing along to the sountrack while frantically pushing buttons!
