Or enjoy full customization abilities with the enhanced Create-a-Skater (now including female skaters) and the Skatepark Editor. Travel from L.A. to Tokyo, Suburbia to Skater's Island performing challenges and meeting goals. New moves include the Revert, which allows you to link vert tricks, and flatland tricks such as Caspers, the Primo, and Handstand Manual. If you're good, you can even unlock hidden pro footage.

Despite being unrealistic/video gamey, Tony Hawk 3 embodies the spirit of skating beautifully. It makes you view the world around you as a big skate park, takes time to practice, but once you get good and are able to traverse smoothly through the world while raking up millions of points it's the most satisfying thing ever. Iconic soundtrack too

Wieso wurde je ein Storymodus eingeführt?
THPS hat den perfekten Ablauf.
Keine miesen Dialoge, kein ewiges Rumgelaufe zu irgendwelche Missionen.
Level auswählen, 2 Sekunden Ladezeit und direkt gehts los mit der Action.

Maybe the premier example of Character Controller As High Art.

the controls are a bit dated but the levels are classics and the soundtrack is kino

I'm not done but it's fun as hell
