In this 3D skateboarding game, you can play as the BirdMan himself, Tony Hawk, or as one of nine other top professionals: Bob Burnquist, Kareem Campbell, Rune Glifberg, Bucky Lasek, Chad Muska, Andrew Reynolds, Elissa Steamer, Geoff Rowley, and Jamie Thomas. Work your way up the ranks by landing tricks in competitions to become the best skater on the circuit.<br><br>Not only does the game give you the opportunity to step into the shoes of nine world-renowned skateboarders, but it also gives you the chance to skate some of the world's greatest and most famous skating venues. There are even spots that no longer exist, such as San Francisco's Embarcadero and the infamous Burnside in Portland, Oregon. <br><br>More than a mere spokesperson for the game, Tony Hawk actually worked closely with the development team to create a more authentic skateboarding experience. You will also skate to the tunes of popular old and new school punk bands, such as the Dead Kennedys, the Suicide Machines, Goldfinger, and Primus. <br><br>Compete for medals and skate your way to improved statistics and new levels in the single-player Career mode. Or, challenge an opponent to a contest in the game's two-player split-screen Graffiti mode to spray-paint your way to victory. No matter which mode you choose, you'll need to master the game's motion-captured pro-signature tricks while riding each professional's official board.
