This Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 Speedrun Beats The Game In Under Four Minutes

by Kyle Hilliard on Aug 09, 2014 at 10:47 AM

An impressive combination of trick skill, level knowledge, and speedy menu navigation makes this Tony Hawk's Pro Skater speed run difficult to keep up with.

You can check out the video below from YouTube user GeorgeThePlushie, clocking a jaw-dropping three minutes and 26 second completion time for a game I probably took me a month to defeat when I first played it.

Oddly, one of the most impressive aspects of the run is the speed at which menus are navigated. It's ridiculous. You'll also notice the speed runner using their index finger to manipulate the shoulder and face buttons while they leave their thumb on the X button. It's a hugely impressive feat.

For another impressive speed run, check out the recently set Ocarina of Time run.
