Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 for the Mac allows players to skate with the skills of the best skaters in the world, including the great Tony Hawk, or create their own customized skater. Players are challenged to master trick combinations, working their way up the skateboarding ranks using spectacular moves like manuals, grabs, grinds, inverts and lip and nollie tricks and more. Players can skate in a variety of international real world settings, including Philadelphia, New York and Marseille, that are filled with secret areas, short cuts, ramps and interactive objects allowing players to trick off just about everything in sight.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 offers three multi-player modes via LAN, the Internet or AppleTalk network, including a brutal tag mode, trick attack and graffiti. Three additional Tony Hawk's Pro Skater levels are included--Woodland Hills Warehouse, Chicago Skate Park and the Phoenix Down Hill Jam.
The game's real-time 3D editor allows players to build their own dream park from scratch, adding depth and replay ability to the game. Players can see exactly how their park will look in the game as they plot out a course using a variety of parts-ramps, rails, obstacles and quarter pipes. Once a course is laid out players are able to save and share park files with friends.
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, for Macintosh, will be available wherever Mac games are sold, with a Suggested Retail Price of $39.95.
