Tony Hawk 2 is the perfect follow up to the
original. Not only is it one of the best skateboarding
games ever, it’s one of the best video games period. What makes it so great? Let’s take a look. Alright, so I reviewed Pro Skater 1 a little
while ago. It’s a really good game, but it doesn’t
really hold up that great. Not having manuals seems like a glaring oversight
in retrospect, and it just doesn’t feel like a Tony Hawk game yet. The series was new and it needed to grow up
a little bit. But what followed it is an absolute masterpiece. Pro Skater 2 came out on pretty much every
device capable of playing games at the time. Which one should you play? I’ll give you a few options. First is the Playstation version. This is the original. This is the version created by the original
team. This is the version that got nothing but 9s
and 10s from gaming journals. For the most authentic Tony Hawk 2 experience,
I would go Playstation. There’s also the N64. The graphics are a bit better, and I think
Pro Skater 1 is pretty good on the 64 – check my review and you’ll see that most of the
footage is from that. BUT the fact that the soundtrack is cut down
and edited is a big deal this time. The Pro Skater 2 soundtrack is incredible. I can’t play any of it for you or I’ll
go to YouTube jail, but it’s a big loss if you don’t get a chance to hear it. Another option is the Dreamcast. I’ll show some footage of that. It’s definitely a better-looking version
without compromise, assuming you still have a Dreamcast. Then there’s also the PC version. I finally got a chance to take this off the
shelf and give it a try. It installed just fine and recognized my controller. But in my case, it HAS to play in 640×480,
and you can NOT run the config file, or this will happen. There are patches available, but try that
at your own risk. Lastly, there’s the Xbox version, Pro Skater
2X. This game is a strong contender for the best
version of Tony 2. The engine is the same, so there’s no problem
there, but they added volumetric grass, lens flares, motion blur, all in 480p. They also included the Pro Skater 1 career
mode, and also exclusive 2X levels. I’ll show those in a bit. If you’re coming into this game fresh, without
nostalgia, try to get your hands on this. Alright, so pick out whatever version works
best for you, and let’s get started. Tony Hawk 2 was improved in every way over
the first game. There are more skaters, and more stat points
for each one, so they all feel unique. The trick list has been expanded and built
on, and there are more challenges in every level. In Pro Skater 1, you would collect SKATE as
well as one other specific thing, then the secret tape and high scores. Now, the levels are bigger and more dense,
with much more to do – like ollieing the magic bum, doing lip tricks at the hidden skatepark,
and finding cash in secret tunnels. Pro Skater 2 is full of some of the best,
most iconic Tony Hawk levels of all time. Later games got too bogged down in trying
to be a realistic type of place, you know. Look at Suburbia in Tony Hawk 3. There’s a big dead zone in the middle of
the level with nothing to skate. Sure, they threw some tiny ramps in there,
but it’s not like you can do anything on them. The theme of the level required there to be
some kind of cul de sac to tie everything together, so it has to be there. Compare that to New York, Philadelphia or
Venice. They’re all loosely based on real locations,
but there’s no wasted space. There are lines everywhere for your combos,
but they all make sense for the location. And the game is loaded with easter eggs and
secrets, and this attention to detail is one of my favorite parts of the game. You can skate in the gym in the School 2 level,
or outside at skatestreet. You can unlock secret characters, and even
secret levels, like Skate Heaven. On top of all of that, there are cheat codes
you can play around with, 2 player modes, and a Create-a-park feature. With all this stuff to do, you could play
Tony Hawk 2 for years without getting bored. And I did. Even after Pro Skater 3 came out, I still
went back to 2 for a long time. When I eventually ran out of things to do
in the game, I started making up my own gameplay modes. One of the things I used to do with a friend
is compete for the best “Keepin’ it Real” run, something that we invented. What is it? Here’s what you do. Go into the cheat menu and turn on sim mode. This will make gravity a lot stronger, but
it lets you spin faster. Next, start up a single session, and try to
complete a whole run doing nothing unrealistic. That means no riding on grass or dirt, you
have to let your skater push for himself instead of just crouching and speeding around, and
no doing gaps that are unrealistically big. On top of that, everything has to be clean
and perfect. If you do a spinning trick, it has to say
‘perfect’ on the screen. You can’t repeat tricks, except as parts
of combos, and you have to cover as much of the level as possible. Try to complete a whole run, and save the
replay to enjoy decades later. Now before I forget, let’s take a look at
Tony Hawk 2X. So this game came out at the launch of the
original Xbox. Tony Hawk 3 was already out on PS2. So it wasn’t a major release, and it was
really late, but it might be the best version you can get. You get everything the original version offers,
except, once you beat the career, you unlock levels from Tony Hawk 1, and also exclusive
2X levels. Let’s take a look at the 2X stuff. So these levels were designed by Treyarch,
and they don’t really have the same level of polish at the original stuff. Weirdly, they’re styled after the Pro Skater
1 levels, with only a few challenges to do. That said, they did their best to match the
feel of Pro Skater with the design and layout of the levels, with one exception: the construction
site. So the Xbox was brand new at the time. The most powerful gaming system the world
had ever seen. They bumped up the graphics quite a bit, but
they still wanted to show off a little more. The construction site is a mostly vertical
level. You can climb this structure and get to get
the secret tape all the way at the top. The PlayStation 1 wouldn’t have been able
to handle the draw distances of looking out from the top. But even though this is a gimmick and doesn’t
feel like an authentic Tony Hawk level, it’s still one of the better ones. Aside from that, you’ve got the Club, which
isn’t bad. There’s the Skatepark of Tampa, which is
pretty good, and was later reused in Tony Hawk Underground. After you beat that, you get the Subway as
a bonus level. There are no goals, and you’ll get bored
pretty quick. Lastly there’s the Detroit Skyline. There aren’t any challenges here either,
and it’s kind of a mess. I guess it’s worth a couple minutes, but
you’ll get bored here too. And why call it Detroit? There are a few skyscrapers there, but it’s
mostly a wide city, not a tall one. Eh, I guess that doesn’t matter. You do get the Tony Hawk 1 career as well. I mentioned this in my review of that game,
but the fact that you can do manuals makes this way too easy. You can knock out all the high scores and
contests with ease, and it completely changes the feel of the game. But it’s really cool to have the levels
and see them all remade with updated graphics. It’s definitely a good bonus. Another thing I’ve come to appreciate, especially
after Tony Hawk HD, is how solid the engine is. I remember the game crashing on me once or
MAYBE twice, in hundreds of hours of gameplay. And I’m pretty sure that was when I was
messing around with multiple cheat codes and just doing weird stuff the game wasn’t designed
for. The game is solid, well designed, fun, and
replayable. What’s not to love? Tony Hawk 2 is by far my favorite game in
the series, with nothing else even coming close. This and Thrasher are two must-haves from
the Playstation era. Pro Skater 2 launched a million skateboard
careers, and inspired me to skate too. Rodney Mullen’s ending video was so good
that I went to K-mart and bought a skateboard, determined to learn caspers, and I did, just
not like him of course. Did these games get you started too? Let me know in the comments. Is Pro Skater 2 the best game in the series? What do you think? That’s all for this time. If you liked the video, hit the like button

    Great video as always Rad Rat, if youre going through the whole series im definately most excited for THUG and Project 8, those two games were my jam. I owned tony hawks underground a few months before it came out as a kid. and it was just my shit. then when i went back to to it as a teenager is when i got good at the game xD im also excited for the Proving ground video cause it was one of the few tony hawk games i didnt get to play for console, i did play it on the ds and it was very fun but ive heard a lot of bad about console version. that assuming you do them all xD dont over work yourself. anyway man, good shit keep it up

    Whats your opinion on THPS4? I think I have played THPS2 (on PS1) the most, but I still think that THPS4 was better because of the trick variety and the game physics. The levels were a bit weird, but still…

    Best game of the whole franchise imo.
    I brought it the day it came out on the Dreamcast and played it for years after, much like you said I even went back to it quickly after finishing up THPS3, At least until THPS4 came out.
    I really wanted to own the Xbox THPS2X version as I always prefered the Xbox over the Ps2 at the time, However THPS2X was not released outside of the US so being from the UK there wasn't a PAL version I could play.
    Gutted about that really as it really does like look like the more complete version to have.

    It's kind of interesting that they used footage from (amongst others) Plan B – Virtual Reality as well as Second Hand Smoke, 7 and 6 year old vids by the time of the release of thps2. With all the footage we're bombed with daily nowadays I don't think something like that'll happen again.

    Awe man! Love your videos Rad Rat! I've been playing these games religiously since I was like 4 or 5 and I think you've done great reviews so far. I had THPS2 on both PS1 and N64 and I do think the PS1 version was better for reasons mentioned in the video. Never had 2x. It looks incredible! If I had to rank them personally, I would say THUG1>THPS3>THPS2>THPS4>THPS1>THAW>THUG2>THPG>THP8>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>RIDE & SHRED (which don't really even count)>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>THPS5. Can't wait to see the rest of the reviews! As for other games, did you ever play Dave Mirra BMX? It was made by the same people who made Thrasher and I thought it was a better game than Matt Hoffman as previously mentioned in another comment. Especially DMBMX2

    Great video! THPS2 is my favorite in the series. The School 2 level is easily my favorite, mostly because it's easy to relate to since I've skated many schools before (including Point Loma with the Leap of Faith) and that brings back some of my favorite skate memories of all time. Around 2008 I went out to Venice Beach and spent so much time skating along the beach looking for the graffiti area from the game/footage, not yet knowing it had been demolished (although I did see a few remnants). I played the PC version mostly, always using the keyboard for controls. That got pretty noisy. Last September I saw Fu Manchu play "Evil Eye" live in Chicago and I was so excited because it's in THPS2. The next day I saw Bad Religion play "You" and was able to sing along thanks to my many hours of THPS2. Also, I like how you have the logo for which system the footage is from in the corner. Again, great video. Watching this makes me want to skate so much right now. I can't wait to see what's next! Skate on, my son.

    THPS2 was super fun for me, as well. 3Xtreme was what got me motivated to get a skateboard, though. 2 just made me eager to learn new stuff. THPS3 is my 2nd favorite, though. The triple heelflip special trick is what made me love heelflips so much, which I still do to this day.

    good comparison video! I always wanted to play TH 2X on the original Xbox until I realised there was only a NTSC version that I can't play on my standard PAL Xbox. So personally I always pick the Dreamcast version! But on the quality side, TH 1 and 2 are nice on all plattforms (even the gameboy color version I played was quite nice but different) and then from Tony Hawk 3 the ports are focused on the next gen consoles.

    This game got me into skateboarding, but after replaying it today, I kins of got to disagree with you. THPS 2 has annoying usability issues: no mid game gap or tricklist, camera problems that make getting some of the cash an aggravating task bordering on leaps of faith (esp as your character either goes too fast or doesnt move at all when you need precision novement), no R2 to level you out if you overshoot an air from a QP etc. But its the most pure skate sim out of all the games, tricks take longer to do but are animated more realistically, so its more rewarding to do tricks like ghetto birds or tre flip crookeds, whereas in later TH games theres no satisfaction to be found in performing individual tricks as youre just constantly spamming tricks, doing mega combos. Its hard to get adjusted back to the slower, less forgiving animations of THPS2 after playing 3/4/thug1&2 so much.

    About the THPS2 PC bugs on Windows 8/10:

    You can easily fix this by downloading dgVoodoo. Download it at http://dege.freeweb.hu/ , and place the files from the MS folder into the main THPS2 folder. I would also recommend downloading Demo's patch at http://thps-mods.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5429 . It'll add widescreen support and will unlock the FPS to your monitor's refresh rate.

    4 is my favorite Tony Hawk game. I somehow like that it's not really so much about skateboarding. It's more of a platformer where you use a skateboard, and it's pretty crazy but not so bizarre as some of the later entries. I also like the quirky humor (mostly…), and the game still had plenty of trick- and line-focused challenges. But I started with 1 and still love the classic gameplay that was all about skating too. 2 is definitely my second fav—none of the later games did what 4 did nearly as well. FWIW I enjoyed American Wasteland quite a bit though.

    THPS2 is the reason I am who I am I'm pretty sure. This soundtrack is why I grew an interest in music. Not to mention it was the game that made me actually want to skate and be just like the pros. Many years later at 22 here I am having a problem learning nollie kickflips still. But this game is what started it all for me and if it wasn't for this game, I'd probably be completely someone else

    I have to admit, I hated THPS 2 and it's, in my opinion, the second worst game in the series. My biggest issue was the introduction on the money and how a person had to choose between raising their stats or unlocking new decks or other things. Granted, I also never liked the "classic mode" and thought the games really started to shine after THPS 4 when they introduced the go find a challenge and complete it type of game play.

    Yes I grew up a video game freak. so I had a n64 with Tony hawk pro skater that I loved. And then I got a dreamcast for christmas with THPS2, and just like you, those Skate videos on there got me into skating. I remember seeing rodneys Casper slide and it blew my mind so f*cking bad! I learned caspers stationary without letting my front toe touch in the Casper, and varial or tre flipping out…before I could even tre flip on flat lol after I seen rodneys video for the first time. I'm 24 now and still skate here and there, I haven't for about a year. But it's like riding a bike, I can always hop back on and tre flip, hardflip, bs flip, full cab, after about 20 mins of warming up. I play it on a psx emulator on my phone all the time, never gets old. with a moga controller and a HDMI output for your phone and shits banging! but I seen thps2x at my friends on his xbox and I was so jeloussssss lol love your videos radrat keep it up. been watching nonstop for the past week lol

    Here's something that may surprise you. I've never been a fan of Tony Hawks games when the hype-train started back on the dreamcast / ps1 / n64 days. I took one go of it and didn't understand what was so facinating about them.

    Now so late it early 2018, I recently bought Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure for the Gamecube and although it's a bit basic as you say in it's review you did, It's still rather unique.

    Funny story is, I'm absolutely loving (not just the game but your review of it also) so I decided to subscribe to you and have started to watch all your in-depth analysis review videos of the entire series in order.

    I now decided to make my first comment. I love your informative reviews…. I won't be getting THPS1 but I WILL be buying THPS2X for Xbox after this review, then I am gonna continue to watch the entire review series from you.

    thanks man.

    The only reason I play Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is because Spider-Man is in it.

    The Dreamcast version has the best shadows in my opinion as to be seen in the california level. But luckily this game was my first game among GTA 2 on my PS1. This game is godlike ^^

    I think the subway is based off of the Subway from the Spiderman PS1 game, it looks oddly familiar to that.

    Is it me or the ollie (aka the jump) in the xbox version is a bit more floaty than the other versions of thps 2?, Is like your playing in low gravity, even more so than before, that can make tricks like the 900 way to easy to do.

    I always found 2x really annoying. I'm using the Xbox Duke controller, and making diagonals moves is incredibly annoying, it doesn't register a majority of the time, and I keep falling off my board (that I know is just my fault, and I gotta get better.) Overall, I do quite enjoy 2, but I prefer 3 mostly for reverts. Did you run into any problems with that Rad Rat?

    I know nothing about modern systems. Will 2x play on an X-Box 360? I'd like to pick this up, but I don't have an original xbox, just a 360 someone gave me.

    look dude, i think this review is good… but there are awkward pauses when youre talking… eg… "I reviewed Tony hawks pro skater 1………………. so now im reviewing tony hawks pro skater 2…………………. this is a great tony hawks game………………………………… heck……………………………… even one of the greatest games released………………………"
    I'm not making fun of you, just constructive criticism… i want you to get better

    THPS2 my favorite video game of all time. Everything about it brings me back to my childhood. I've probably played it through over 200 times 100% completion.

    No one EVER mentions autokick on/off option when talking about realism in tony hawk, turn it off, you can skate at your own pase without holding A/Cross to go at full speed, Can tap X/Square button and the skater pushes with each time you press, I like doing this when trying to get a realistic feel, but I never hear people bring it up when doing videos on Tony Hawk games.

    I don't see how this game is "The Best." I mean, i'm playing with a f*cking N64 controller, but the difficulty is horrible, I cant even get past the 3rd level in Career, well i suck at games sooooo. But also, I have the N64 Version, so i cant get a combo with more than 5 tricks, however, THPS 3 on PS1, (it uses the same engine) I whoop the games ass. So i cant see how this one is better than 3, 4 and Underground.

    Redream is an amazing Dreamcast emulator. Its free but there is a paid, $5 version that upscales the graphics to 4K if you'd like. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 on Redream is a seamless experience for FREE! Try it out.

    Played the dreamcast and n64 versions frequently at friends houses, rented the PSX version multiple times and eventually owned the PC and gameboy advance version. Years later, I bought 2X for xbox. Yea, this is easily one of the best games of all time.
