The Birdman goes back underground for his sixth foray into video games. As in the original Tony Hawk's Underground, this direct sequel to 2003's RPG-style on-board adventure centers on a player-created character, who must work his or her way up from suburban obscurity to extreme sport stardom. Once created, the player's character is picked by Mr. Hawk himself, to lead a team of skaters against a rival gang in the game's "World Destruction Tour" competition, which plays out in famous cities around the globe.
The rival team in question is "Team Bam," and it's lead by extreme sports bad boy Bam Margera against the player's own "Team Hawk." Challenges are diverse, with goals that range from claiming turf with graffiti and stickers to more mischievously destructive objectives. As they skate around the globe, in the "World Destruction Tour, " players will want to keep an eye out for new talent. There are over 20 different skater characters in the game.
For old-school Pro Skater fans, THUG 2 also features a "Classic" mode, with a play style more similar to that of earlier entries in the franchise. Here, virtual skaters will race to complete familiar goals such as collecting letters to spell the word "SKATE," finding the secret video tape, and earning top scores in timed runs. ~ T.J.
