[edit] Background

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is the sequel to the widely successful Tony Hawk's Pro Skater/Tony Hawk's Skateboarding. It had a few improvements to the game: The game featured new tricks. The player can now noseslide and tailslide, triggered by pressing right or left on the d-pad. Manuals and nose manuals were introduced, allowing the player to combo in and out of tricks. The bluntslide, nose bluntslide, feeble and overcrook grinds were also introduced.  The game was the first in the series to inclide the Create-a-Skater function, in which the player can model his/her own skater from different elements, such as face shape, clothing and name. The Create-a-Park mode was included, allowing players to construct their own dream skatepark from a number of obstacles and tools. There was also an updated menu system.
