While looking through the reviews here, I've noticed most people only review the game, and not the quality of service, or vice-versa. With this being a site that retails in used games, I thought I might do both in order to help out everyone.
QUALITY OF SERVICE:
I ordered game only, so, as for the quality of casing and such, I am not reliable on this product, however, the game did come in a jewel case. The game was slightly scratched, but so far, my Xbox has had no trouble playing it.
In Tony Hawk's Underground 2, you take control of your own skater as you compete head to head with other famous pro skaters such as Tony Hawk, Bam Margera, Mike Valley, and Eric Koston. You go through various different places beating certain skate challenges in order to see which team can win (Team Tony Hawk or Team Bam Margera) at what is being called the World Destruction Tour. Fun Fact: This game was loosely based off of season two of Bam Margera's show Viva La Bam, and also slightly on Jackass.
There are a few minor upgrades from Tony Hawk's Underground, such as a more expansive park creator, a new soundtrack, and some new unlockable characters. The gameplay is efficient enough, not too hard to control, but there is a little bit of a learning curve if you are new to the series or just haven't played in a long time. The difficulty fluctuates between easier and harder than Tony Hawk's Underground, which is something that I don't care for too much, but being able to whip out a few challenges to practice for the harder ones does have some advantages. The Xbox version of this game adds the feature to play the music you've ripped to your system, which I like a lot, even though the soundtrack, which features "Here I Am" by The Explosion, "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash, and "Pain" by Jimmy Eat World among others is nice to jam to. Also, the voice acting in the game is provided by the real life people the characters were based on, but none of them are very good actors (with the exception of MAYBE Tony Hawk), so the cutscenes go from being comical with a little annoyance to hard to listen to without laughing at the lack of experience any of them have at acting in general.
All in all, while I prefer the predecessor to this game, it is cool, fun, and a nice time waster, and if you are into skating games, I'd recommend you check it out.
