Did You Know?


An unlockable level, "Hotter Than Hell", can be unlocked by beating the Story Mode once on any difficulty. The level is a KISS concert surrounded by ramps, rails, and even a go-kart track with a go-kart you can drive. The letters K-I-S-S are floating around in the air by jumps (all on the side of the stage you start on), and if you jump into all of them (in no particular order), KISS will come on stage and play a song for you. You can run up onto the stage while they're playing, but if you accidentally walk into/skate into one of them, you will bail. You can also go get the go-kart while they are playing (you don't have to be near the stage at all times to hear the music) and jump it over the fence, then drive up onto the stage. Also, the fire on stage will not hurt you. See more »

Eric Sparrow: Wassuuuuup?
Eric Sparrow: Me and Vladimir here are feeling good tonight!
Eric Sparrow: Heh-he-he-he-hey... your license good in Moscow?
[he stumbles]
Eric Sparrow: Ol' Vlad told me it was ok if we take a test spin...

A definate for Tony Hawk game fans
21 May 2004 | by Greatwhitewhale2See all my reviews

To like this game, you have to play the others first. Or you could play the Very easy difficulty. This is nicely different from the other games because it gives you a great story mode with movies and everything where the main character can look like whatever you want.

One really cool features is that there's more to create. Other than doing skaters and parks, you can now create tricks and goals!

The usual skaters are here (Tony Hawk, Bam Margera) and they get involved in the story mode too. The music isn't great. There's a lot of lesser-known bands (or perhaps that's a good thing) but I enjoyed skating to the Sex pistols before! But you can now do it to Kiss so that's cool.

Multiplayer is still the same except for the new "fireball" mode which is really cool.

So I definitely recommend for Tony Hawk fans and for the cool secret characters too!
