No chance in hell. But it's unfair to judge a PSX title against counterparts on more advanced machines. Instead, let us look back to the brilliant predecessor, Tony Hawk 2. To be honest, not much has changed between the two, especially in the way of graphics. Skaters will always look blocky and textures will continue to suck on this aging system, but let's face it: visuals were never, ever an important factor in the sheer fun factor of this series.
However, tons of fans consider the traditionally punk-riddled Tony Hawk soundtracks to play a pretty integral part of the appeal. This one disappoints a tiny bit with some of the selections (how did those hacks Alien Ant Farm get on there?), but counters with a few gems -- namely classics from The Ramones and Red Hot Chili Peppers. Sprinkle in some hip-hop from KRS-One and Del the Funky Homosapien, add a dash of timeless Motorhead, and there you have it! I was let down by the decision to leave out any electronic tunes (a la Grooverider and Fila Brazillia in Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX), but that's me.
At least the sound effects are up to par, albeit a little annoying in some stages; trust me, over time you'll grow to hate the Foundry's endless sirens. Trust me. Nevertheless, all the grunts and groans, grind noises and board squeaks are there. The sound of your skater's wheels changes according to the terrain you're on to satisfying effect, as well. The audible difference between coasting on grass and cobblestone is a very nice touch here.
