Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (Game Boy Advance)

Game Description: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, which has been a bona fide hit on every console it has graced, has staked its claim on the Game Boy Advance. The idea is still to perform hundreds of complicated tricks for points, and players can still ride as T. Hawk or any of a dozen pros in the game. Players can create their own skaters from scratch, too, by selecting appearance, gear, clothes, and more. Heck, you can even create your own ideal skate park by building ramps, rails, pipes, and other challenging obstacles.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 (Game Boy Advance) – Review

No matter which way you look at it, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is a monumental achievement. When Nintendo first announced the specs for the Game Boy Advance to the world, speculation abounded from all circles in the industry as to what the true power of the console could be. There were debates about how many sprites the unit could actually handle and whether it could pull off a convincing 3D with polygons of any degree of sophistication. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 puts that debate to rest as soon as you turn on the game.

Bomberman Tournament – Second Opinion

I'd like to start off by saying that Bomberman Tournament's title is deceiving. Though it does have a multiplayer mode within, Hudson Soft's focus lies squarely on its completely irrelevant single-player story mode.

Bomberman Tournament

Game Description: In Bomberman Tournament, players take the original Bomberman on a rescue mission for Bomberman Max, who has fallen out of communication since being dispatched to the planet Phantarion to answer an SOS call. The popular Bomberman series comes to the Game Boy Advance system with 10 types of weapons and power-ups, eight four-player maps, and more than 200 room-based puzzles.

Bomberman Tournament – Review

I dont think anyone could have predicted how quickly the Game Boy Advance would develop a library of great multiplayer games. Super Mario Advance, F-Zero, and Chu Chu Rocket! lit up the launch with great features that allowed four players to play together using a single cartridge. But the reason you are probably reading this is to hear that Bomberman Tournament is nearly identical to the Super NES and Saturn versions, which would actually be great news for Bomberman fans and Game Boy Advance owners.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

Game Description: One of the most anticipated sequels in recent memory, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 builds on the addictive gameplay of the original by adding many new tricks and features. The idea is still to perform complicated tricks for points, and players can still ride as Tony or any of an expanded roster of pros in the new game. Now, though, players can create their own skaters from scratch, selecting appearance, gear, clothes, and more. Players can also create their own ideal skate park by instantly building ramps, rails, pipes, and other challenging obstacles. All of the old tricks remain, with hundreds of additions. Of course, with all of those new tricks to master, there are also more detailed accidents: scraped knees, broken boards, and wall and (ouch!) pole collisions.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 – Review

The original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater arrived on the scene and did the impossible. Not only did it bring skateboarding to the videogame masses, but it also did so with such proficiency that it immediately became the industry standard—a standard as yet unmatched by its competitors.
