Top 10 Best Tony Hawk Games

The Top Ten
1 Tony Hawk's Underground Tony Hawk's Underground Product Image

I borrowed this game once for around a week, and it's still my favourite one in my mind. I have Tony Hawk's Underground 2 which is my second favourite Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game. I liked the Vancouver level because I live in Vancouver. I liked using the Moon Physics cheat to jump up the side of the building in the Vancouver level and also other levels!

I really did love this game to death, it really was the perfect skating game, no skating game will ever beat this game, this game was my bible back in high school, if I have a kid I will make him bring this game into show and tell and say, "this is the best skating game of all time. "

It's an oldie, but a goldie.

Highly recommend picking this one up, whether you're new to the Tony Hawk series or a seasoned veteran who's sick of what Robomodo did to the franchise later on.

I just personally played this when I was younger. My Dad and I would constantly play this and gave us good bonding time together. Great game in general.

2 Tony Hawk's American Wasteland Tony Hawk's American Wasteland Product Image

Tony Hawk's American wasteland for me, because it has some cool new features while also keeping the core gameplay physics and style there. Also, the soundtrack is awesome! There's something about this game that gives it a mix of both nostalgia and fun!

Yes. On this list for me right now it's right next to underground, slightly ahead. It's just so fun! It mixes nostalgia with modern gameplay elements and I think that's what you want in a skating game, or any game.

This was my favorite game because it was my childhood. I used to spend hours every day just playing this and having the time of my life. I love the cartoon aspect of the game and it is just so much fun.

Great game, this is the second tony hawk game that I ever played, am trying to buy all the TH's for ps2 and Xbox classic. I like this one because you make your own skatepark out of street junk and petrol station signs. Just bought THPS3 for Xbox this morning from Ebay and I am waition to play it.

The PS1 version was the first Tony Hawk Game I ever played and the one that got me into these games! now I'm a huge fan and have all of the Neversoft developed ones!

The original time based career was the best! they need to make another game like this again for the fans!

Neverending evenings playing this one!

Good level designs, fun missions, countless hours... This game was my childhood, everything Pro Skater had, Pro Skater 2 improved on. This is one of the most fun games I have ever played. Why is it below THAW and THUG2?!?

Have to say, while I love this whole series, this one was really the most special to me (alongside THUG). Pro Skater 3 is extremely fantastic as well but my heart gotta go with 2 here.

Just great and awesome I just loved the secret skate heaven level and the school level was my favorite one of all. And unlocking spiderman was really fun and his specials were cool

By far the best Tony Hawk game ever! It's number one to me.

5 Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Product Image

I really wish you could vote the whole underground series to be #1. They had plans for an underground 3 but the Tony Hawks Ride made them go poor, sad. But underground is so well put together and it's a nice mix of easy and challenging. No frustration no pain just an amazing game well both of them, the controls are fresh and easy. Where can you go wrong?

I have played them all from pro skater 1 on PS1 up to proving ground on XBOX 360 and this my favourite. I just love the soundtrack, the levels and the characters and the story. Being a huge Jackass fan helps but this one is awesome! If you haven't played it yet then get it! It's well cheap on ebay or from a charity shop etc so just go out and get it, you will never look back!

Now, this game deserves third place, but I feel it's a little underrated. People get mad because it wasnt strictly skating, as it was a variety. that's a good thing, the missions were fun, being able to ride more than a skateboard to complete them was fun, the soundtrack is good, the story is ok.

How is this the #3, I respect underground and wasteland but this one was awesome. Graffiti, Tomatoe throwing, wee man, flashing babes from NO, etc. This game was crazy and went beyond skateboarding so fun.

This was the game that changed tony hawk games forever. Turned the levels into open world and featured the best levels to date!

Best THPS, although 2 comes very close. Better than the Thug games if you started the series early on and used to the pro skater style gameplay.

I'm currently playing it, having played it for several years. It has been and will always be a fantastic video game.

Best levels, a lot of humor and many hidden gems in this game. Best in the series in my opinion.

7 Tony Hawk's Project 8 Tony Hawk's Project 8 Product Image

Very good Tony Hawk game! It is actually my favorite! You can skate in an amusement park, factory, down the street, in a capitol, in a school, and even more without any load times! There are A TON of goals including classic goals, to spot challenges, and even to pro missions where you skate with pro skaters! If you haven't already, give this game a try!

I just voted this #1 so I could get it higher on the list. Underrated because it came out when the series was on a major decline. But the best graphics and control, all in all. My favorite of all time is a tie between THUG2 and THAW.

Too bad not allot of people really played this game.. I honestly think it was the best in the whole series. I loved the seamless game play, load up the game and WHAM you're skating in a massive environment and you're free to do what you please

So underrated, in my opinion much better than any pro skater games because of its open world and improved controls, proving ground saw the death of TH games not P8. All the areas, characters, customisations and offline competitivity due to the nature of the storyline goes uncontended, except for the underground ones of course

8 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Tony Hawk's Pro Skater Product Image

Absolutely loved this game. The music, the multiplayer, the maps. All of it close to perfection. Completely lost interest in the series after Underground 1 and 2. Not bad games, but the decline in quality was too obvious for me.

The best one to start the series fun and easy to follow!

This & project 8 are fantastic. I disagree when people say, American wasteland was the last good tony hawk game. That's not true, the franchise went downhill when Robomodo got the license to the games.

This was better than Project 8 in every way. I can't even PICK UP Project 8 anymore because of this game. HUGE IMPROVEMENT. Still, it's on the worse side, but it holds a place in my heart.

This game is vastly underrated, I play every TH game ever and never seen anyone praising how this game was good as the other ones, there is some reasons:

- a more serious plot
- way bigger and better customization than the lack custom of thp8
- finally a free roam without loading screens (pro skater/underground) or crossing a stupid tunnel (American wasteland) and 3 times bigger than project8, good map, truly beautiful locations
- especially the fact this one has the most realist locations, Google it/ see then in real life is very look alike
- great soundtrack (like always) this one has a more sofisticated playlist
- improved features, custom your own skate park again, the video editor is too fun, for the first time you can create ramps or rails in free roam anytime
- the hardest /challenger of all to get 100% (specially sick levels)
- graphics still kickass for a 2007 game, still better than pro skater 5
- you barelly never see any glitches, I never ...more
