Turner Broadcasting’s GameTap gets vertical with the announcement of this week’s XTREME SPORTS showcase. Building on its large action sports game catalog, GameTap has added PC versions of Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer, Mat Hoffman’s Pro BMX, Snowboard Park Tycoon, and Sensible Soccer 2006, as well as the Dreamcast version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. To complement the week’s theme, GameTap is débuting an exclusive Tony Hawk Retrospective video that chronicles the history of the legendary game series.
This week’s featured titles include:
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater: Joining the previously added Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 and 4 on the network, this precursor is the first Dreamcast game from the series to premiere on GameTap, with its sequel on the horizon.
Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer®: Join six time world champion Kelly Slater in his quest to find the perfect wave while surfing some of the world’s most exotic locations.
Mat Hoffman’s Pro BMX: Gravity defying Mat “the condor” Hoffman’s original freestyle BMX game features the skill and unmatched experience of the 10-time World Vert champion himself.
Snowboard Park Tycoon: This first person snowboarding game lets you do more than just ride the pipe, you can also build it how you want it.
Sensible Soccer 2006: With fast action and aggressive play, the game builds on a long-standing soccer series which has become the ultimate in multi-player soccer.
GameTap is also announcing the addition of multiplayer capabilities to Soccer Brawl™ and Street Slam (aka Street Hoop), two of the network’s rare Neo Geo titles.
