In the largest and deepest Tony Hawk game yet, gamers are now in total control of their skating destiny in Tony Hawk's Proving Ground. Set in the streets of Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., the title empowers players with the freedom to define their character, story and style based on the choices they make, the paths they select and the style of skating they want. The game delivers deeper customization than ever before, including a full-featured video editor to create epic skate videos and a completely customizable online Skate Lounge, where players can skate with friends in the ultimate pad. Gamers also have the freedom to skate from single player to online seamlessly.

Freedom to Play Your Way: Players are now given unprecedented control of their skating experience. They can mold and shape their character however they choose the choices they make and the paths they travel determine how they evolve as a skater.

Create Epic Skate Videos with the Full-Featured Video Editor: Players can capture all of their sickest tricks and bails with Neversoft's new video editor to make their very own skate videos. Command the footage using a full-suite of video editing tools, lens modes, camera angles and effects to cut clips and combine clips, add a personal soundtrack and even showcase online to share with others or simply move up the leaderboard rankings.
Seamless Integration Between Online Multiplayer and Single Player Experience: Gamers can join online multiplayer action anytime directly from the single player story mode and take all of their character's skills, attributes and stats online. Additionally, they can create their own personal Skate Lounge and invite others to view their winnings or join them for an online skate session.

I agree. The game sounds absolutely awesome. I like the idea that Activision have brought back the customization and park creator, which was a massive hit in the previous titles. I was confused at why they'd leave out such a great part of the game when Project 8 was made, but still, it's good news that it's coming back.

Wow, yeah same with me. I thought Project 8 was incredibly hard, as I can't even get past Rank 6. :mad: But the new one coming out sounds like they have really taken these games to the next level. Can't wait for it.

For me id give project 8 a 7/10 for hardness or achievements in my opinion they gotta be harder.

yeah THP8 wasnt that hard, i havent got all the 1000 GS, but i could of if i hadnt of sold it so early on. this looks great though, it will be one that ill definately get.

i'm just mad at wasting $60 for project 8 when I could have saved it for this year's proving ground. Its sounds 1000 times better than project 8.

project 8, although frustrating, was still a great game and the achievements, which were once again frustrating, are the way achievements should be with few online and mostly offline that includes going out of your way to excel for points (classic goals). proving ground still does sound pretty sickly.

We know Tony Hawk is a great game... the question is, can it be greater every time ?

No matter how many new stuff they put on this game, it's the originality of the game (goals), the maps, and the achievements that will make it or break it...

I think that the achievements are going to be even harder, but i think its going to be the best skating game ever, im still waiting for Skate (maybe is even better)
