You've been chosen by Tony Hawk to compete against Bam Margera's team in the World Destruction Tour. In an all-new storyline, Tony Hawk's Underground 2 takes you to skateparks around the world, where you can spray your custom tag, slap stickers, and even create new skate lines. Now you can play as yourself, as your teammates, or as more than 20 special skaters. If you're feeling nostalgic for older Tony Hawk games, you can try Classic mode, which challenges you to accomplish your favorite goals, such as Secret Tape and High Score.

3.5-1334 Windows Vista AMD FX 8320 @ 4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 For some reason, I experienced extremely laggy gameplay, averaging 15-28FPS. Not sure if it is an incompatibility with my system/ settings or the game itself. Other games run flawlessly on my system. Terry Suave
4.0.2 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-4960X @ 4.6 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Use settings above for optimal performance. Works really well on my machine, slight glitches but nevertheless, perfectly playable himalayan
4.0.2 Windows 7 AMD FX 8370E @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti My experience with this game is similar to Terry Suave's, I can run many other games with full speed and graphical enhancements, however this game runs 20-30% lower than all others. Main menu isn't even playable, and I know my system should be able to handle it. ASSJUICE
4.0-4929 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-4600M @ 2.90 GHz Intel HD Graphics 4600 Random crashes, unless dual-core is turned off. Story mode was completable otherwise. Minor graphical issues during cutscenes UGoBoom
5.0-rc-35 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-960 @ 3.2 GHz AMD Radeon HD 5800 Haven't tested Story Mode yet, but I can confirm that Classic Mode works like a charm, and so does character creation. Only problem I've encountered so far is trying to apply a created graphic onto my character; going to "Create a Skater" after loading my custom graphic causes the emulator to crash. UmbraWitchJeanne
