    Aha! I think I've seen an episode or two of that in the past. Thanks for clearing it up!

    Yikes, a 10? Never would've thought of that... I've only played the demo and liked the nail the trick but that's it... *shrug*

    Hmm, the number of 360 games that I would actually buy is rising... but as it's available for the vanilla xbox as well I can't see that much point really in getting a 360 yet. When H3 hits, maybe...

    Absolutely incredible level of technical ability, so many tricks you see and go 'now way did he just do that'. The part were he is handstanding and flips the board back under his feet is astonishing!

    Or the bit near the start we he 540s (?) into a frontside manual is :jawdrop:

    I'm not familiar with the names of these tricks.

    I have completed the game, i wouldnt give it a 10 due to some gameplay issues. 1 of which is really annoying. The skate competition in the school the half pipe seems to have glitches when you get too high. having a 20k score with a 30x multiplier to be destroyed by a random bail cause u hit some kind of artifact that cant be seen is just annoying. Great game tho just some parts seem rushed for no reason at all 9 out of 10

    She was also in THPS1, if we're being picky. And that's the first thought that popped into my head after reading the review. But it's interesting to say that the ninth in the series can still bring something new to the table (other than stupid characters and shopping trolleys - like in THUG). I might have to invest in this, providing it's available for the rubbish "last-gen" consoles.

    10/10 You have to be kidding

    10/10 You have to be kidding

    Why is is all the other reviews complain of glitches in the gameplay, clipping issues, camera jumps and random wipeouts?!?!

    I've only played the demo so far on the 360 but even I noticed loads of issues with it. Which is a shame as I was really looking forward to it.

    Hopefully they'll be able to patch it through LIVE but some of the other platforms wont be as lucky

    Hey
    I was just reading this article when I knoticed something wrong. You stated "whilst Lyn-Z Adams marks the first female pro to appear in the series." This isn't true. The first female in the Tony Hawk series was Elisa Steemer (sp) in the first game.
    Cheers,
