Tony Hawk's American Wasteland review

  • Terrain is completely skateable
  • Great creation modes
  • Online support
  • Too much content
  • BMX bike is useless
  • What's with the bugs?
Some of the other new bits, such as the awkward Bert slides and the ungainly addition of a BMX bike to the proceedings, feel tacked-on and shoehorned-in - there's too much to do, in a bad way. Even with some amazingly sloppy environmental and collision bugs, the strong multiplayer support and enjoyable single-player story make Tony Hawk's American Wasteland the most satisfying Xbox entry of the franchise to date, but less would be more for next year's inevitable release - the core thrill of defying gravity with four wheels and a plank of wood is starting to suffer from all the extra poundage.
