“The series’ return to the purer elements of skateboarding is a welcome one, and being as there are very few missions that don’t require a skateboard, this is what we like to see…. I’d say it’s the best Tony Hawk game since THPS4, and I’d recommend it to anyone who’s either a fan of the series, past or present, or who hasn’t tried out a Tony Hawk title in some time as it’s great fun.” – 8.5/10, IGN.com
“While the gameplay in Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland is still sharp, and the game still looks and sounds just fine, this seventh installment just seems to lack that special spark that made the series so much fun in the first place.” – Gamespot.com
