"Tony Strikes Back With This GBA Classic"
Yet another installment of the Tony Hawk games which again, will not disappoint you in any way whatsoever. Beautiful gameplay and dazzling graphics make Tony on the road the ultimate experience. Grab your skat...err, I mean fingers, and dive into this amazing game!
The graphics are sharp, and the camera angles are crisp and are always where you need them to be. Whenever you perform a trick, the camera zooms in so you can see more clearly what you are doing. Of course, you can turn that option off if you'd prefer. Once well into the game, you can activate cheat codes which will unlock different views for the game. Some of which are fun, while others are just...different.
The music is devoid from words un-like the previous Tony Hawk games, but the music is still pretty good nonetheless. The cool beats repeat themselves after a while, but tend you help you get into the ''mood'' of the game. And hell, if you don't like it, you can always listen to a CD player while playing. :P
Play Control: 8/10
The game is easy to learn, but like all the others-difficult to master. Using the A, B, R, and L buttons, you put together various combos to rack up your scores. Using the up-down buttons will cause you to ''Manual'' which allows you to string tricks together for the sickest score possible.
Replay Value: 8/10
C'mon, it's a Tony Hawk game, so of course this game will keep you busy for a while. Even if you complete the game entirely, you can also try to get better at the game, and raise your high score, making your friends extremely jealous. Trying to obtain all the options and all the tasks for each character in itself is a challenge, which will just add more fun/time into the game.
Overall, Tony Hawks Pro Skater 2 for the GameBoy Advance is a game you won't want to miss. If you like all the other installations of the Tony Hawk series, you'll be quite pleased with this game.
If you think this is just another 'typical' Tony Hawk game, you're wrong. There's a brand new look & feel to it, which will differ itself from it's console brothers. Many new things to do, and options to unlock make it a worthwhile game to buy. Even if you own all the Tony Hawk Pro Skater games up to this point, I suggest you go buy this game today!
