"The legend returns."
Get ready for a lot of button pressing! This game is a whole lot of fun. The main point of this game is to skate your way through levels. Each level will have some objectives you must complete before you may advance to the next level. You also get money for doing these objectives. If you liked the previous Tony Hawk games you will love this one. This game is hard to stop playing but at the same time it makes you want to brake something! This game can be frustrating at times but in the end you won't be sorry you bought this wonderful game. If you don't like sports games or skateboarding you will most likely not like this game. You can pick a lot of different skaters so don't worry about small options. You need to have patients and love these types of games to want this one. This game is pretty hard at sometimes. But yet again, this game is easy. The hardest thing about the game is getting the high score and sick score. And some times it is hard to get the s-k-a-t-e letters in the air. It sometimes is hard to get in the right spot to grab them. Now lets talk about the controls. The controls are pretty easy. The main control is the D pad. It lets you steer your player. When you press up on the D pad you can exit half pipes or lean forward into a manul. Up and down on the D pad keeps your balance while in a manual.Left and right is used to keep balance when you are grinding(also to steer your player). Down on the D pad is also used to lean backwards into a manual. The L button is to do Flip tricks and the Toggle nollie. The R button is for Grab tricks and switch. The a button is to grind and the B button is to crouch/jump.
Well i always read the box before i buy a game so i can make sure i want it. I will put everything the back of the box says so you don't have to waste a trip to the store and decide not to buy it:
Hawk's back, in the world's first 3D handheld skating game. And he's brought new pros (Caballero, Koston, Mullen). New tricks (Bluntsides, BS/FS Nose- and Tailslides, Heelflip Varials, Airwalks & more). And new terrain (insane street and vert levels). Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 for Game Boy Advance. Get your hands on a legend.
The graphics get a 10/10! These graphics are wonderful for this little amazing handhelds from Nintendo! Almost everything looks good enough to see what it is. And the sound is also great. This music is very loud and clear. Very good for a handheld.
Replayability-10/10. There is no limit to this game. It has a free skate mode, a single session mode, and a carrer mode to keep you busy for quite a while! It is hard to stop playing this game!
This game is worth every penny. Right now it should be around $40. Not too bad.This game is really fun. If you are looking for a game to keep you busty this is the one for your! I didn't rent it first but i knew i would like it. Well i hope i have helped you make your decision on whether to get this game or to just forget about it for now.
