Tony Hawk's Project 8

Tony Hawk's Project 8, officially abbreviated as THP8, is the eighth installment in the Tony Hawk series of video games. It was released on sixth-generation and seventh-generation consoles . The name Project 8 refers to the Project 8 competition featured in the storyline, and because it is the eighth game in the Tony Hawk series.

Tony Hawk's Project 8 Plot

The game begins in the custom skater's hometown in surburbia. After breaking out into the main streets, a team created by Tony Hawk is made. The team is called Project 8 and comprises eight skaters.

The skater character unlocks levels, causes destruction, attempts challenges and impresses locals and pros, in order to be part of the Project 8 tour.

At the end, the skater must successfully hold the crowd back while Tony escapes.

The game has been met with mostly positive reviews, with the Xbox 360 version garnering an overall average of 81% on GameRankings. It was especially the subject of praise for its "Nail the Trick" mode and graphical enhancements (it has, however, received criticism for the removal of several key features).

In the GameSpot review of the PlayStation 3 version, Project 8 was criticized for its lack of online play and unstable framerate. Criticism has been aimed at the versions of the game on all Sony systems (PSP, PS2, PS3) which all lack any online multiplayer functions. Major gaming websites like IGN and GameSpot note that since the Tony Hawk franchise was the first game series available to be playable online on the PlayStation 2, the PlayStation 3's omission is strange, especially considering the Xbox 360 version is fully playable on Xbox Live, and all prior versions of the series back to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 have been fully supported by online play with the PlayStation 2.
