IMG Reviews Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2
11:05 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Although the Mac platform doesn't lack for new game releases these days, it does lack variety in some respects; it isn't often we get the opportunity to play a game that represents an entirely new style of Mac gaming. Just a few days ago Aspyr Media announced the release of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 for the Mac OS, the first commercial "extreme sports" title on our platform. Our reviewer certainly loved this game, echoing the praise it has received both for the Playstation console version and the PC port:

Remember 720 degrees? That arcade game that made you collect money so you could get into different areas of a skate park to show off your skills. "Skate or DIE!" ring any bells? I only bring this up to say that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 does have its predecessors. That said, any games that came before and all the games that will come after this genre-defining title pale in comparison to THPS2. This game transcends genres, blending sports, arcade, simulation, and console action into one slick package.
Read on for the rest of the review, and be sure to add your own comments to the user reviews once you have played the title for yourself. Currently there is an element of doubt concerning a demo for this title; it seems Westlake Interactive never received the code for the PC demo of the game. We'll investigate the issue further, as we're sure many of you would like to try this title before you buy.
