Section 1

Tony Hawk( for which the game is named after) is a very talented professional vert 
skater. Also, he is the inspiration for a series of popular video games, Tony hawk 
pro skater. These games have appeared on the Game boy, Game boy advance, Nintendo 
64, Gamecube, and many other gaming systems.

Right now, I am talking about the most recent Tony hawk Pro skater(THPS) game, THPS 
4. The game is made by Activision and Neversoft. It is rated T for teen by MPAA for 
Blood, Mild Lyrics, and violence.

THPS4 is One player or 2 player simultaneous. It requires
  a Gamecube memory card to save.

Here are the basic controls for THPS 4.

To crouch/ollie- “A” button= gives skater more speed if held down. When u want to 
jump, just release the “A” button.

To manual- press “up” and “down” using the control stick very quickly= allows u to 
connect your grinds and tricks together, useful for combos.

Grab tricks- Press “X” while in the air(usually off of a vert ramp) and use the 
control stick. Using different directions on the control stick with “X” makes 
different tricks,(for example= “X” and down on the control stick = tailgrab)

Flip tricks- Press “B” while in the air and different directions on the control 
stick make different flip tricks(like with grab tricks)(for example, “X” and left = 

Grind= press the “Y” button when u have ollied onto a rail.

Lip tricks- skate straight onto the edge of a vert, not at an angle and 
press “y”(if u are at an angle, u will grind instead)

Section 2

THPS 4 is a brilliant game. It is very much like its predecessors, but it is much 
different in the aspects that you aren’t timed on a particular course, only timed 
in the goals. In THPS 3,2, and 1, u had a certain amount of time
to complete as many goals as possible on a course. But on THPS 4, You get an 
unlimited amount of time on the course. The goals are still timed, but they are 
timed separately from the course, which I see as an improvement. You get more 
playing and less fiddling around on menus etc.

The One-Player action is greatly improved. Not only the career game, but 
the “create-a-skater” and Build your own park are both much better than in previous 
games. More options.

Career is most likely the greatest part of the game. I have spent hours on the 
career. Not only winning the game, but attempting to get EVERY goal in the game.

Two-player, however, is not the same story. Although it has plenty of action with 
its different game modes and has two new game modes, the free skate and trick 
attack were disappointing. All of the interaction( such as the extra people walking 
and things happening) is gone in the two player. For example, on the “Zoo” level 
there are no animals in the cages, but there are in one-player. There are no people 
walking around, no cars driving around on city levels, etc, etc.

The extra options were phenomenal. Movies for EVERY skater and also a few extra 
were included in the options, although you have to unlock them before you can watch 
them. There is also an option for codes(see section 3). And you can chose if you 
want blood and many other basic options. 

The levels and skaters themselves have been brought to life. The graphics of this 
game surpass all of its predecessors and many other games that have just been 
released. Also, there are more levels in THPS 4. Extra to the normal 7 levels on 
THPS, there also 2 secret levels- The carnival and Chicago. Chicago is a great 2 
player level. And since so much is going on in the carnival, it’s a good one-player 

Section 3

Now we get to the good stuff- cheats and hints.

Probably the single most important code in THPS 4, is “watch_me_xplode”(with no 
apostrophes). It unlocks  countless codes. Everything- perfect rail, perfect 
manual, perfect skitch, big head mode, invisible mode, super blood mode.......it 
goes on and on.

To see the list of the codes that it unlocks, when u r playing, press start. Then 
options. Then codes. You will see a list of codes with the word “off” next to them. 
If you highlight a code and press “A” it will switch from “off” to “on” and it will 
be activated and vice versa. So even if you unlock a code, you must activate it 
also to make it work.

Here are a few taunts. Do them while you r standing still.

No Way Taunt: press L1+R1+X.

Your Daddy Taunt: Press L1+R1+B.

Props Taunt: Press L1+R1+Y.

Get Some Taunt: Press L1+R1+A.

Here’s a few other codes:

giantsteps= moon gravity

2wheelin= perfect manual

well, You don’t need any codes really. Because you can unlock them all 
with “watch_me_xplode”.

Here are a few extra skaters. If you enter one of these names in “create-a-skater” 
then you will get a pre-made skater

Section 4

Future THPS are unclear, but there is a THPS coming out in October, 2003. It is 
called THPS underground. Activision promises very good things such as- the ability 
to get off your board and walk around.

But the one thing that caught my eye was this. You can create a skater and then 
take him on the hard road to becoming a pro. It sounds great and I’m sure that the 
graphics won’t be disappointing.
