Tony Hawk 3 for Playstation 2 and Game Cube does not press the limits of those systems, however Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3, for Playstation 1 presses the limits of the system in a whole new way, because of the amazing detail of the courses. In Pro Skater 1 & 2 you would skateboard in a city where you can go into 1 or 2 buildings, now with Pro Skater 3 cities like Los Angeles, you can go in every single building it is amazing! You can play as one of 13 pro skaters in skate parks located around the world, such as Japan, Rio and Canada. The graphics have not improved at all, but the places to skate have gotten immensely detailed! Rather than doing things to get money to buy boards and status points like in Pro Skater 2, you must find and collect status points and additional boards in Pro Skater 3 (which really makes earning things seem like work instead of fun). The real downside of the game is that the graphics are very dark, not just in the steel mill (first course), but even in outdoor courses like Rio and Suburbia the graphics are very dark as well. There are lots of new tricks, which I can’t say will impress you, but they are there. The feature to create a skate park is exactly the same as in Pro Skater 2, except there are different themes.
