Overall Rating9.5 / 10

Just when you thought the game couldn't get any better, Tony takes it to a new level with a revamped career mode challenging you to become a pro. The legendary THPS addictive gameplay and intuitive controls are tuned and ready to guide you through 9 levels of amateur ranks to your ultimate goal - living the life of a pro. Think turning pro looks easy? Find out for yourself. Skate as Tony or one of 12 other top pros. Choose from an ultimate team of street and vert skaters including Elissa Steamer, Jamie Thomas, Rodney Mullen, Eric Kosten, Steve Coballero, Andrew Reynolds, Rune Glifberg, Geoff Rowley, Bam Margera, Kareem Campbell, and Bucky Lasek. Plus, Bob's back! Brazillian favorite, Bob Burnquist returns to the THPS family.





Completely new, non-linear career mode lets skaters choose the level and goals they want. Challenge pros head-to-head to beat their best tricks, take off to a competition, or just skate solo to conquer a gap.

Evolving levels change depending on the specific skater's goals and accomplishments. Toggle different skate elements on and off (quarterpipes, benches, kickers) to change up lines. Randomize events in multiplayer mode for ever-changing elements.

Go Pro! Play through 9 levels as an amateur, then conquer your pro's special challenge to unlock the more difficult professional world.

New, upgraded Ultimate Skatepark editor allows user-set objectives like high scores, hidden tapes, and combo completion. Create a dreampark and give it to a friend to session. Even place lights, insert gaps and modify ground type throughout the park.

Improved skater physics and animations now allow skating on moving objects like cars, trucks or cranes. Also includes more realistic balancing, bails and board dynamics.

IGN Cube:
"If you didn't reserve your copy, you had better get in line at your local retailer quick. The only reason not to buy Tony Hawk 4 is if you've grown tired of the gameplay or feel saturated by the genre. Even then, the series is still king of the extreme sports world. Do not miss out on it. Buy it. Rent it. Just play it."

"Fifty-five hours. I've played this game for 55 hours and counting, and I'm still not done. Far from it. I caught the worst flu of my life (or did I?) and sat on my couch from sun-up to sun-down to sun-up, and so on. Funny, smart, richly entertaining and superbly crafted, TH4 is more in the same class as GTAIII..."


Game Spot:
"The deeper single-player and improved multiplayer modes makes Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 the most tightly-packed installment in the series to date. In short, anyone with even a remote interest in either the genre or the real-life sport should purchase this game as soon as possible..."
