Tony Hawk is back to shred the streets with three new pro skaters joining the roster: Steve Caballero, Eric Koston, and Rodney Mullen. More ways to skate are added with the ability to manual being the biggest innovation, allowing skaters to string street tricks for bigger combos. There are more moves as well with lip tricks having their own button combinations as well as a handful of new flips, grabs, and grinds.
There is far more to customize than the previous game as every skater can have their moveset changed with different tricks and special moves to try. Furthermore, players can create their own skaters with their own stats and moves and even create new levels with the Create-A-Park feature.
