If you have wanted to play as Jack Black in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, you’re in luck. Though he isn’t “officially” in the game, his likeness and voice are used in place of a fan-favorite secret skater. You’ll just have to complete a list of challenges in order to unlock him.
In previous iterations of the mainline Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise, Officer Dick was an NPC that would drive around School II and chase players with his golf kart. Eventually, players were able to unlock and play as Officer Dick in the game. He was just a generic-looking rent-a-cop back then, but he gets a makeover in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, with Jack Black’s face and voice now front and center. Who wouldn’t want that?
Unlocking this new version of Officer Dick in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 requires some effort, though. In order to play as Jack Black, you must complete every Created Skater challenge, of which there are around 24 in total. After completing them all, Officer Dick (AKA Jack Black) will be selectable in the Select Skater menu. Once you started playing as him, you’ll instantly recognize him.
We scored the game a 9/10 in GameSpot’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 review, with editor Mat Paget writing, “Playing through the newly remade levels is immensely enjoyable, and that on its own is enough to call Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 a success. However, smart additions and an engaging challenge system make it an experience that’s more than just a brief skate through Tony Hawk’s past.”
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is out now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Ahead of its worldwide release, the game was already discounted at many major retailers, including Amazon and Walmart. Its soundtrack alone makes it a worthwhile pickup.
