For the first time ever, Tony Hawk?s American Wasteland gives players the freedom to experience continuous skating and BMX biking action without leaving the game or waiting for load times as they explore and choose missions in a massive, living Los Angeles skate world. In a plot-twisting story that pays homage to the roots of skateboarding and 80?s punk style, gamers play a young rebel skater who makes his way to the mecca of skateboarding where he must prove himself to Tony Hawk, local pros, and legendary skaters and participate in the construction of the ultimate, trick-filled skate park. The new game features new multiplayer modes including a two-player co-op classic mode and online functionality for the PS2 Online and for the first time ever, Xbox Live.
