I thought Dave Mirra was awesome, The first one, with the ragdoll physics....Hours and hours of fun with that demo ( the actual game was really easy)

Lol cool I really liked all four thps, but underground really wasnt good, especially underground 2.

Plus, what ever happened to those bmx games? I never actually picked one of those n64 copies up, but a new actually decent one would be a pretty popular game.

Yeah, me too. It was basically the same game as THPS at the time, but with a bike. So with someone like me who gets bored with games fairly easy, it's a nice mix on things. (Even though THPS kept me pretty busy back then too... hours and hours on each one. And I never got sick of the first level on DM where it played Sublime over and over again, lol.)

EDIT: Now that you guys got me talkin' about it, I think I'm gunna bust out DM right now, haha.

Well they're incorporating the Dave Mirra engine into it so it's like both the THPS series and the Dave MIrra series combined. You can do all teh normal underground stuff probably and this time it's just one giant level so there's no load times.

And it's also on XBOX LIVE.

I think Acclaim made Dave Mirra, which we all know how they turned out. One NR Reader and one SNES from acclaim sitting on my shelf, so...

The School is by far one of the best levels in Tony Hawk. Yet I also noticed that Wasteland looked like it was current gen. It better get alot better by launch time if they want to atleast spark my interest for it.

I loved the TH games, right up to 3, 4 was ok, but once THUG came it went down hill big time, i mean i hate the big open levels just like everyone else, and im much happier with smaller well thought out levels.

Now as for the BMX games i think the Dave Mirra games sucked, and imo Mat Hoffman is a much better game Since that is just like Tony Hawk only on a BMX.

the reason it looks current gen is because it is. It is being released on xbox and PS2 and Gamecube plus xbox360, which pisses me off, if they are gonna make games on both platforms they are developing for the current gen systems in mind, and then just putting a little more "hi-res" textures in there for the 360.....They are sacrificing it so they can make more money and are just pinching every penny out of the current gen systems.

you realise of course - that as a business model, to cut off support for ALL current (read, largest installbase) hardware just because new hardware is coming out is simply suicide. Just as much as NOT supporting new hardware at all is suicide waiting to happen.

I actually don't like the way the Tony Hawk series is going with Underground and American Wasteland. I (like many other people i guess) prefer the old games. I know I still bust out my N64 to play the original Tony hawk every so often.
