Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix PSP

This would have to be the best action sports game to come along in a long time on a portable device! THUG2 Remix is almost a direct port of the game on the PS2 with a few new levels thrown in for good measure and a kick ass gaming experience to boot. 

The story itself is pretty cute as well. Tony Hawk and Bam Margera have put together two teams to go around the world on a competition involving massive amounts of insanity! The teams are picked and around the world you go. 

For fans of the series you can rest assured that Shaba games who converted this for Neversoft have added four new levels exclusive to the PSP and the title supports up to four players for wireless multiplayer (tested with 3 players no problems). 

The idea is the same as the other games in the series. You get a series of things to accomplish before you can progress to the next level, all of which are really well thought out and a lot of fun. You can tell that thought has gone into making every level, even the new ones are as skateable and entertaining as possible. 

One of the things that I must bring your attention to is the quality of the extra levels on  this game. They are not just tacked on crap but actually high quality playable levels that do expand the play of the game and are the saving grace that makes this more than just a brilliant port of the game off the PS2. 

THUG2 Remix brings to the party the awesome sounds of the PS2 soundtrack with my fave being the Johnny Cash classic ďRing of FireĒ Environmental sounds come across perfectly and overall adds greatly to just how cool this game is. 

Iíd say that if you are into extreme sports that this is a must play title,. Itís the best game of itís type currently on the system however if I was to take a pessimistic viewpoint, itís the first title that you can say is pretty much a major port of an existing title with some cool extras added on. 

Iíd recommend this title without hesitation. Itís well put together, a delight to play and truly does justice to one of the best franchises out there. Thanks Activision!
