VERSION HISTORY
---------------

1.1:  18th June, 2008      (Format update)
1.0:  14th November, 2005  (First version)


===============================================================================

1.                               Introduction

===============================================================================


As with the previous game, there are two modes to choose from: Story mode and
classic mode. Story mode has three difficulty levels, although some players are
likely to be disappointed about the extremely easy difficulty, even on the
hardest setting. In nearly every goal, you are told excactly which buttons to
press and are normally lined up right in front of the target. A shame, as the
large levels would have allowed for some very creative goals. Classic mode has
returned, with a mix of levels from previous Tony Hawk games. Difficulty is
slightly higher in this mode, but experienced players will breeze through it.

Disappointments aside, there is still much to appreciate here. The game, though
not being one complete level (there are playable load-tunnels between levels),
does feel like one large city, and it's great to just be able to skate where
you want instead of having to select a level from a list. There are shops to
buy haircuts, clothes and accessories, new moves to perform and plenty of
variations on old moves like the natas spin combos. And of course the addition
of BMX biking, something that is tricky to get used to but great when learnt.
Overall this is a solid title, and while not matching up to the quality of the
previous Tony Hawk games, still contains enough new additions to be enjoyable.

rr a ven sent the following tip:

"If you ollie early enough so that you starting falling before the camera goes
into slow motion, you can push the button combination for the flip tricks
without having to nail the timing in slow motion mode.  You have to push the Up
O, O, O buttons really fast just as you are about to go down.  Again, this is
helpful because when the camera goes into slow motion, it is difficult to push
the button combination in coordination with slow motion timing."

At 1,000 points, jumping over the fountain gives one of the biggest gap rewards
in the level. Just ride forward from the start point to the end of the road and
then go down the slope on the left. A manual to flip over the fountain gives
about 10,000 points, and this can then be finished off with flatland combos for

fountain area, which is great for big combos to revert manuals.

HIGH SCORE / PRO SCORE / SICK SCORE
-----------------------------------

Jump onto any grindable surface and start experimenting with pressing any two
of the shape buttons. For example, from a 50-50, pressing square twice will
switch the grind to a smith. From a smith, pressing circle and then triangle
will switch the grind to a one footed smith. Another way of changing grinds is

is that flip tricks or even small grabs can be performed between each grind.

HIGH SCORE / PRO SCORE / SICK SCORE
-----------------------------------

Quarter pipes are great places to earn points in levels. Performing double
rolls (circle + left, left) and flips (circle + down, down) score great points
on their own, but remember that combos can be continued by adding a revert (R2)
to manual (up, down) quickly after landing. Combine this with additional grinds
and grind variations and the higher scores will become much easier to achieve.
