Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is waarschijnlijk een van de weinige games die geen onderscheid heeft gemaakt tussen de verschillende consoles (maw exclusieve ontwikkeling) en daardoor nu zowel op PXS, PC en Dreamcast te bewonderen is.

IGN bekeek de DreamCast versie eens aandachtig en gaf er zijn mening over.It seems that I've been waiting for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 for Dreamcast my entire life. In reality, it's only been a handful of months, but they have been months of serious jonesing, I assure you. Likewise, around the office, the anticipation surrounding the game has been unparalleled. As I played through the Playstation version here, a steady stream of editors would stop by and gawk at it, then summarily tell me they were waiting for the DC version. "I don't know, guys," I would repeatedly say. "This game is pretty rad." Turns out that the editors who said they would wait are wise beyond their years.

Let's get right down to business. Tony Hawk Pro Skater for Dreamcast is the best version of the best skateboarding game of all time. Period. I say this after having played through seven of the ten levels in the game: it is superior to its predecessor, superior to both the PC and PSX versions, and a contender for game of the year on the console. I was a bit worried that the game would be half-assed on to the Dreamcast, but Treyarch has done an amazing job with it. All of the gripes one could legitimately have with the PSX version have seemingly been wiped away.

Ik heb zelf de PSX en PC-versie nu gespeeld, maar ik moet eerlijk toegeven dat de PC op dit vlak bij verre niet tegen de console op kan.
