    Only 2 or 3 games have ever had a 10/10 before so that's pretty impressive! (I think Zelda [​IMG]OT, Soul Calibre 2 & Chrono Trigger)

    I think it was Chrono Cross that got a 10. Never played it, but I would probably give Trigger a 10 myself.

    A lot of magazines that review games for N64 and PSX/PS2 have been giving out 10/10s a lot more. EGM gave all (but I think 2) or its 10/10 scores within the last year and a half, and if its more than just one or two, then it can be considered a lot. Its not often you get that many perfect games in that much time.

    Whats amazing is that THPS2 got a 10 last year and now this year THPS3 get a 10! I personally think THPS series is the BEST sports series EVER....also the games are some of the best out there of any genre. From Thursday night to November 15th I can't be disturbed as I will be playing THPS3 [​IMG]

    I loved THPS2, but I'm not sure if there is enough between the games to warrant a purchase between each sequel. Its kinda like Dead or Alive 2 compared to Dead or Alive 3. The only difference is the graphics, the places, and thats about it. The gameplay is essentially the same.
    Then again, I'm not a sports fan and I'm not a huge THPS fan either.

    The Tony Hawk series is so perfect, that just the addition of new levels warrants a purchase. Everything else is just icing on the cake. [​IMG]

    I have taste, its just that THPS3 is like DoA3: been there, done that, nothing new. Online play is new, but I don't want to spend more money to buy a modem or adapter in addition to the game just to play it online. A game should not cost more than $60 to play it online out of the box, IMHO. I will eventually get a modem, but thats when I get FFXI.

    Morgan,
    All I can say is wow! Tony Hawk is a GREAT series. I think every sequel in this series deserves a purchase. I for one am jumping at the chance to play on-line. Speaking of that, I'm not looking forward to running the ethernet connection to the living room of my house. Ouch!

    I really feel like I'm missing out on something with this series. For some reason, though, I just can't get into it. I just don't get excited about doing "tricks" & button combos. [​IMG]

    Anyone know if THPS3 will be ported to the PC? I picked up THPS2 recently, and it plays very nicely (yummy 1024x768 resolution). This is a game I'd rather have on the PC, I think.
    But if the THPS3 comes to the GCN, then it and Rogue Leader may force me to do something drastic... [​IMG]

    I loved THPS2. I also loved Jet Force Gemini, but I'm not a JFG fan. Why can't it be the same way with THPS?
    Online play is a cool thing, but there is only one game that supports it and I don't have a modem to use with it. I would need to buy a modem for PS2, and to tell the truth, its not worth it unless I have more than one game available to use it with. By the time FFXI comes out, there will be several games (plus I will spent any amount of money to play FFXI as long as its not some crazy amount).
