Has this ever happened to you? You have a prtevious generation game you wish you could play but can't because you discover that the pc version of the game is broken or it is badly emulated on the ps3 or xbox 360?

I am talking about tony hawks underground 2. I have it on the gamecube, its really fun, but i wanted to get it on the xbox due to gamecubes limited controls and less than appealing graphics. I have an xbox 360, so i bought the xbox version. I discover that the game runs slowly.

Than i tried out the pc version. My friend had it on the pc but never played it, so i tried it at his house. I discover that the right and left triggers dont work properly when mapping the controls for this game. The gamecube version is not that horrible, i would have liked to play this game in HD and with better controls though. Anyone who has played it on the gamecube knows how much of a pain it is to grab a ledge near a quarter pipe. you end up acid dropping down the QP instead of grabbing.

Resident Evil 4....the Gamecube version is best...But I'm not sure if it is just because of nostalgia or because it generally surpasses the PS2, Wii, etc. versions

Gamecube version is actually the worst.

No Seperate Ways campaign
No Assignment Ada Campaign
no Mercenaries

The Wii version has the GC's loading time & graphics, coupled with the wii mote for aiming.

Also, if you want to play Tony Hawk's just use Dolphin. It's working fine, apparently.

i actually should try that. i have a gamecube adapter controller. My graphics card can handle 3x internal resolution so i can get better graphics. not every game works well with dolphin though

i just tried THUG2 on dolphin, its a broken game, it only runs at around 20 - 40% speed at 20 FPS. I have the original gamecube disc and a wii, i just wanted to try it on different platforms and emulators.

Tony hawks underground 1 works like a charm on the xbox 360 though.
