Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Rides Onto Nintendo 64 Platform
Activision Inc.'s TONY HAWK'S PRO SKATER 2 for Nintendo 64, currently available on North American retail shelves, allows players to skate as the legendary pro skater Tony Hawk, or one of 12 other skaters, and show off their skills in international skate parks including Marseilles, New York, Philadelphia and Skate Street in Ventura, California. Developed by Edge of Reality, TONY HAWK'S PRO SKATER 2 features the franchise's signature control scheme, which allows players to perform an increased number of tricks and combinations, including new grabs, grinds, inverts, manuals, lip and nollie tricks. In addition, the 3D skate park editor allows players to build their own dream parks from scratch, with a variety of ramps, rails, pipes and fun boxes to choose from. Players can see, in real-time, exactly how the park will look, and can even test ride the park in various stages of development. Gamers can also canvas their own personality onto the virtual landscape with the new create-a-skater feature. This tool allows them to choose such characteristics as weight, height, dress, board type, tricks and skating skills.
