Bored stupid? Relax, Activision is here to offer you the chance to get board stupid with a winning combo of skating and surfing for GBA at a bargain price. Tony Hawk is up first to rescue you from the daily grind in Underground 2. As with the first Underground game, this skating adventure affords players an unprecedented level of customisation and a comprehensive library of grind, lip, manual and special tricks. The multiplier score system remains intact, as does the ability to link moves together through a simple 'revert' trick. It's a game of pure skill. Additionally, skating acrobats can now take advantage of a new Focus Control element that sees play slow to bullet-time speed in order to complete combos more easily. However, Tony Hawk veterans may feel this makes the game simply too easy, so developer Vicarious Visions has offered the facility to disable this new feature.

Another addition to the basic Tony Hawk play mechanic is the Tantrum feature. Remember how frustrating it was to throw away thousands of points and multipliers because of a bad landing? Well now players can gain half their points back by sending skaters into a tantrum. This is achieved by hitting a randomly determined combination of buttons after a bad fall, and it works surprisingly well.

With special guest skaters, graffiti design options, mini-games, and that good old familiar gameplay, Tony Hawk's Underground 2 takes the best from the earlier games in the series and uses it to create a brand new, captivating and complete chapter in the series.

The other half of this package is Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer, the most challenging and fun surfing game ever, featuring the most recognised surfing professional of all time. Players will experience an all-out adrenaline rush as they drop in on huge waves, pull into barrelling overhead tubes and pull off hundreds of insane trick combinations including fantasy tricks and signature pro moves. Players can choose to ride as six-time world champion Kelly Slater, or as one of eight of the most accomplished surfing pros of all time - Rob Machado, Kalani Robb, Lisa Anderson, Bruce Irons, Tom Curren, Donovan Frankenreiter, Nathan Fletcher and Tom Carroll.

The game features multiple modes of play including 'Surf Trip' where the gamer chooses their own path, in search of the perfect wave traveling to 13 of the hottest real-world surf breaks from around the world including the US, Europe, Africa, Australia and the South Pacific. True to the sport and lifestyle, the game features authentic in-game sponsors including surfboards, wetsuits, board shorts and apparel; video clips from top surf directors Taylor Steele, Sonny Miller, and Ira Opper; and an innovative, lifestyle-orientated soundtrack including Pearl Jam, Ben Harper and Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction/Porno For Pyros fame.
