    I bought the first Tony Hawk GBA game when the system launched, way back - and I loved it. The subsequent games, not so much, don't know know. I still like Tony Hawk 2 on my PC, the other ones just never sucked me in the way it did. Guess I like the level designs, since they used those in the first GBA version. [​IMG]

    Skate or Die was better [​IMG]
    Tony Hawk games are just small upgrades of the same game engine. They really need to do something more new to it than add more types of moves and simply add a story. The maps could be alot better too. I was expecting a go anywhere kinda skateboard game, but instead its the same game with more city like levels, story and those improved yet limited creation tools :/
    THUG one was like that. And I havea good guess this one is just the same thing but with a non cheat version slowmotion mode and a "tantrum" mode.
    Tony Hawk games are good skateboarding games, but its been 6 games now. They should really try to make it something new by now already. And a suped up mo'ped isnt gonna cut it o-o.
    Something realistic and free range would be nice [​IMG]
    Like a nice skate around a city and lots of non linear missions and side missions to change the story [​IMG]. Plus that would open up a good possibility for a good MMORPG style skateboard game lol. Wich btw would be something kick ass to look forward too o-o lol

    ALRIGHT!!!
    I can fit this, Mario Pinball, and the new Fire Emblem all in my EZFA cart.
    btw, I assume this will be better than the one on my Cell Phone. [​IMG]

    I found the first thug for gba not so good (but i love it on gamecube, play on it almost every day [​IMG]), maybe the second one will be better...

    This game is really fun if you get the controls down. I liked the last 4 of them. [​IMG]

    For all of you complaining about the game being "the same" each time, what the hell do you want out of them? They are limited by the GBA's cartridge size and lack of buttons. While they try to add all the features of the latest console release there is only so much that can be done due to the GBA's limitations.

    As for my take, I enjoyed THPS2 for GBA and finished it but I haven't finished any of the subsequent offerings. THUG1 was pretty good at first, but it got to the point where it was a bit too difficult to up stats, and the goals just were not articulated well enough. That is they'd give you a goal and it'd be impossible to figure out just what was neccessary to complete it. Depending upon file size and fun factor maybe this will displace RCR as my quick play game on my cart.
