I got it my hands on it before best buy had even put it on the shelves. Soooo much fun. A patch was made available earlier as well, but I'm not sure what it addressed.
I'm ready to make some cool videos, but the **** EA site won't even let me sign in...:twisted:

Tony who?

so....how are the tricks!?

if you were extremely talented, could you pull off a complicated trick at the beginning? or is what you can do variable on stuff like stats or something

is it just the ambiance that makes it better than TH? because i just downloaded proving ground's demo today, and i must say, it had cool environments to skate around in, but it felt exactly the same as the last one. BORING

Yeah, there are parks in teh city you gain access to as you move up the ranks.

I've played for **** near 7 hours straight. Playing online with your buddies is SO MUCH FUN, we were laughing hysterically for awhile. It'll be even better if EA can get the servers running better.

THPG sucks, try the demo on the marketplace and you'll see why.

I need some more people on my friends list that are playing this!

Why does EA like these goofy acheivements like "have you footage rated 20 times"? I've got a video with 17 votes, and for the life of me I can't get the last three! If anyone here has me on their list, rate my videos and I'll do the same for you!

Seems like Gamespot finally got their hands on the game. Not only did they not bother to be on time with their review, they also didn't seem to put a lot of effort in it. Their complaints obviously show some frustration at their inability ("Some challenges are too specific" as a negative...), they also don't give credit where it is due. No positive comment about such a well put together city whatsoever, no mention of the beautiful animations, only complaints about some loading times and the music. Then they go on to state you could get enough out of it with a rental and slap a 7.5 on it. The review is rubbish, the rating is rubbish and in fact the attitude of this particular Gamespot reviewer is utter garbage.

yeah, the gamespot review sucked. It bascially pointed out that the reviewer sucked at the game. I'm not sure what why he was griping about the soundtrack, theres only one song in the game that annoys me...."every day I'm hustlin', everday I'm hustlin', everyday I'm hustlin'..." AAAAHHH, make it stop!
