Final Breakdown


The gameplay is improved from the last THUG: levels are nonlinear and teammate mode is enabled.


While the levels are graphically improved, the fact that human characters are now blocky messes detracts from the game.

Sound and music:

The soundtrack in this version just plain sucks. It's not that the songs themselves are bad, but crappy 30-second 8-bit recordings of vocal songs do not ever result in a good soundtrack.

Controls and Interface:

The Focus system helps a lot; players on the GBA SP will still have trouble as the game is heavily reliant on tapping the L and R buttons.


The usual caveats apply: try this one before buying. And while it's the best Tony Hawk for the GBA yet, you'll definitely want to turn the sound off, or at least the music.
