I was a fan of the Tony Hawk's series until this came along.
The tricks are far too complicated to orchestrate on the Wii wand; and the game is too complicated in general.
There is no real tutorial level; and I found the game very difficult to get a grip on.
Proving ground is too complex for its own good. The map is reminiscent of a poor man’s GTA, while the tricks themselves are no more spectacular than the earlier PS versions. This is not a patch on the earlier Tony Hawk's games such as Pro Skater 2; it’s not worth the £30 ($60) price tag.
