View Full Version : Is this game worth the $14.75???

01-19-2008, 12:16 AM
I really had no intentions of getting this game but I've seen some posts and even saw 6 copies left at my Target for $14.75 for the Limited Edition. Is it really just more of the same or does it manage to stand alone as its own game. I haven't played a Tony Hawk game since Wasteland which was essentially a watered down port so I haven't really played one of the generation's Tony Hawk games.

Worth $14.75 or not???

No, have someone pay you 15 bucks to play it. it sucks so much. The achievements are pretty hard I think too.

Not worth 5 bucks in my opinion.

It definitely is worth just $15. It'll keep you busy for a while, even though a lot of the Achievements are very hard. You'll be able to get a few hundred points out of the game. You can even use cheats while playing the story mode, so that makes it just a little bit easier. For $15, how can you go wrong?

Please, pay 50 bucks for a quality skating game, titled skate. Thank you!

I'd pay 15$ for it...even though it wasn't amazing, it took me about 30 hours or so just guessing as I can't remember at all, but it was something of that sort to run through the story mode and get like 300-400 points, the achievements are hard, ridiculously hard.

Get it. That limited edition was only made for Target stores actually. It was for a little thing we do every year around Christmas and they all didn't sell that's why the went on clearance. Get it. It's got nothing on skate. but a brand new Tony Hawk game for $15? Can't pass that up...

I am a skater so i love skating games. i bought this for $60 the day that it came out. It is ok not as good as project 8 was. The achievments are harder. i would recommend skate it is way better and you will most likely get the full 1000 if you like the game.

Well seeing as Project 8 is only like $19.99 now would you recommend that game at that price over Proving Ground? Only reason I was considering Proving Grounds was because of the price and Project 8 is around that too.

What do you get in the Limited Edition Bundle?

Damn thats cheap i probably would have bought any game for that price. I bought the game today and gave much more money for my copy.

i got mine for $25, i think it is well worth it. Some easy beginning achievements, and episodes. But a lot of hard episodes and achievements too.

the game is definatly not as good as project 8 but its still worth getting if u like tony hawk games

I think the game is definetely worth $15. It gave me a good 60 hours of gameplay... the achievements are not so hard. It just takes time. I got 800 gs in this upto now. All goals completed at sick it's just the online / cash spots and gaps to get.
I would say project 8 was much harder and rewarding than this. The classics are very easy on proving grounds comparing with project 8! Hawkman are very good goals that test you to the limits for sick (harbor bridge especially). I paid 25 ($50ish) for mine and I was still made up. Excellent replay value and playing online adds to that. It's a great game.

Was shopping at target, and saw this for $15 figure I'd pick it up. But I was sad to see that my former favorite skating franchise is dead. I bought Skate this year at full price on release day, and loved it. This was the first year that I didn't buy Tony Hawk on the first day of release. I hated the demo but for $15 you can't pass it up.

I payed the full 60 for it, it's so boring, the game isn't even about skating.. it's like skate check the securt guard, nail the trick with 215446 branches, climb the ladders to get to bam, race around the town, rig ramps, etc. it's boring as hell.
