I liked it, but I'm a THPSfag. I played the PS2 version. I actually bought the "Collector's Edition" for $60, which was the thing that led me to believe that the proliferation of "Premium" versions of games that were launching at $10 more with some extra crap was designed to get consumers used to paying $60 for vidya. I remember the outer sleeve having a grip tape texture on it, which was cool, but removing the sticker keeping it attached to the case tore a bunch of it off.

The whole "open world/no loadscreens" thing was supposed to be revolutionary, but in reality it was just you skating down an empty featureless tunnel for a while instead of looking at a loadscreen.

I hate the phrase "sovl" but American Wasteland doesn't have it when compared to THUG. The story of THAW is supposed to be that you're some homeless skate punk who comes to LA in the non!80s and helps build a skatepark (each major story mission gets you a new big piece for the park, which you can skate in at any time and watch change over the course of the game, which is admittedly pretty cool) and woo some skanky crustpunk whore love interest, but then they throw a bunch of consoomer bullshit at you. Literally the very first thing mission in the game is to go into a clothing store and buy a new outfit covered in dumb skater company logos.

The other thing that bothered me about THAW was that even though it was the 7th mainline game in the series it just assumes you have never played a TH game before, so you have to do a bunch of "training" shit in the beginning where the game "teaches" you how to do basic shit like a kickflip.

It's still a THPS game mechanically though, so if you like the gameplay its worth checking out, but the story sucks and the presentation kinda sucks and the soundtrack is dogshit. I would unironically recommend THUG 2 over THAW.
