Updated on October 10, 2013

An original sports game for playstation.  Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater can be played in many other platforms like Game Boy, Nintendo, Xbox, Nokia n-gage, and now, it has a personal computer version.  Activision has made it possible for PC gamers to play this game both in the demo version and in its full version.  Demo version is free and has many limitations but interested players can buy this game for its full version.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater PC version started its release in 2000 with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2.  Now, it is in its fourth version.  Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater has 3D graphics.  The background, sounds, graphics, and moves look realistic.  You can use your keyboard to control the skater or you can use a game controller that is compatible with your PC.

 

The controls from your keyboard are the up, down, left, and right arrow keys.  For other functions, use your keypad at the rightmost portion of your keyboard for controlling your skater’s movements.  If you’ve downloaded this game successfully in your computer, a more detailed instruction is included in the readme documentation of the game.

 

For a more interesting gameplay, you can press 2 functions simultaneously.  For example, if you want your skater to jump longer, press the right or left arrow key together with keypad 2 (on the rightmost part of your keyboard).  If you want your skater to jump higher, press the up arrow key together with keypad 2.

 

You can watch your game after you’ve played it by choosing Instant Replay in the menu of your game.  The demo version does not save high scores and you only have one venue to skate in.  Aside from that, you only have 3 skaters; Tony Hawk, Bob Burnquist, and Kareem Campbell.  By upgrading to the full version, you’ll have over 9 venues for skating, create your own park, keep high scores, and you can choose over 14 skaters.

 

 

System Requirements

1.       Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP

2.       800 MHz Pentium II or equivalent or higher

3.       256 MB RAM or higher

4.       GeForce 2 video card or similar

5.       DirectX 8+

 

If you experience any problems during startup of the game, choose the lower resolution of the game and uncheck the special effects from its configuration menu.  This should eliminate problems in loading this game.

      I don't think you can do that knowingly. The best I could come up with is by pressing the keypad 9 which is the switch. If you want, you could press two keys at the same time, keypad 9 and one of the arrow keys. You've got to gain speed first before you could manual and it usually only happens by chance and when you least expect it.

      Hope this helps you with the game. Happy playing.

      Hi, Eileen. Your grandson made you play games like a teenager, huh? :O

      I agree with you, if it was real, I'd be already dead by now. I crash with cars all the time and jumping from rooftop.

      It's my pleasure bringing back memories. Hope you play and enjoy this latest version. The last version I played was version 2, but I enjoyed this better.

      beatsme, not so much of just for the teenagers. My grandson got me playing games. I used to laugh at how he was hooked on them and then he got me hooked playing all sorts of roleplaying games.

      I played this one too. But kept crashing out gee I must have got a sore bum from all my falls. Lucky it was only a game. Great hub bringing back my memories too.

      Hi Quicksand, I agree. But that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the games teenagers play. We can still play this or other video games as long as we're enjoying. :)

      I agree with you. Tony Hawk himself is not young anymore and still is doing lots of tricks. It is a great game to play.
