Review-Tony Hawk Pro Skater-2 for iPhone

For those of you out there who own an iPhone or iTouch enjoyed the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series for console, this app is worth looking into.
THPS2 for iPhone features the same levels, play modes, special tricks, characters, and controls as the original. The only thing I find to be different is the soundtrack, (which if you could mod would be awesome).
The primary exclusions are the create-a-park and create-a-skater features.
A couple minutes on the game and I was sent back to those good ole days on the N64.
The controls take a little getting used to, trick combos get tough, especially without the tactile controls associated with real gaming controllers, but after a little adjusting its as if there's no difference at all.
The game, surprisingly taxes little on the battery supply, which is a plus. I find this app well worth the price and works great for curbing boredom or just killing a little extra time.

Price: 1.99 (originally $10)
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 2.2.1 or later
Happy skating!!

  3. Sounds like a cool app, but I cant imagine such a good skating game on such a small scree. I'll pick this up for free though.

  5. This plays so much better on the Dreamcast. Seriously I don't see why people by these ports when iPhone game controls are horrid for games like this!

  9. Had the game on playstation, so the controls seem fairly similar. Just dont know how well the touch screen will recognize very quick movements.
