Tony Hawk's Underground Hints for PlayStation 2
Start story mode as new game, when you go to the create a player screen, Hold 'R2' for 1 second To darken the screen and let go of 'R2' to go back to Normal.
To get millions of points in one trick less than 5 minutes (you have to be patient) you have to enter a cheat at the options. The cheat is for perfect rail and the cheat is: letitslide. After you enter this cheat, activate it in gameplay (in options,cheats) and go up to a ramp and press TRIANGLE. Just triangle. You wont have to move the arrow and just keep clicking Circles,Squares and triangles to get double points and more points. By doing that you will get so much points in no time, and it's useful when beating eric :D.
I know how hard this game can be so here are a few things:
Unlocking t.h.u.d character all you have to do is complete the game on sick, the thud character is the lizard thing that eats eric on the short clip at the begining
As soon as you find the multiplayer leval 'hotter than hell' (i think that you have to beat the game), go to the plain old lonely helicopter.stand on top so that youre under one of the propellers, but youre still on top of the helicopter. Keep jumping until you fall in

I have been having trouble with this gap, so if anyone else is, then I'll tell you how:
Grind the rail right in front of the M on the blue building, and grind all the way past the cement, and grind the Down Line part of the bench that looks like a T.
Type in rearrider in the cheats menu.
Grind the outer catwalk to the flag streamers leading to the backdrop for the main stage and grind them over to the stage and grind them over to the stage (or air into a grind from the pipes behind the stage). Once on the stage, ollie into a grind on the high black ledge and air off the kinked portion in the center to fly into the air and grab the Secret Tape. Land in a grind on the other side for the Secret Tape Gap.
Follow the directions for the No, F&%King, and Way gapsto reach the top rail at St. Basil's Cathedral. Hold a grind on this rail through the tunnel at the top of the cathedral and around the other side where the Secret Tape is.
Leap out of the half pipe and into a grind on the light support ring suspended above. Hold the grind straight through the giant scoreboard to find the Secret Tape inside it.
Skitch down the road from the museum towards the arena to get plenty of speed. Let go of the car and Spine Transfer the center of the pagoda on the right, infront of the hotel. Boneless off the otherside of the pagoda to air over the dome to pluck the Secret Tape out of the air above.
There are two ways to get this Secret Tape. The easy way is to return to the roof of the white waterfront of the Pink Palace hotel and grind the cable down towards the front of the Pink Palace hotel. The other way is to leap out of the rooftop pool on the Pink Palace and grind from the patio roof to the awning. Continue to hop from awning to awning and grind the cable up towards the Secret Tape. Both methods work equally well.
Approach the main theatre stage and head to the far end of the arm extending out to the left. Use the quarter pipe near the end of the stage to vert up and into the rooftop gulley. Skate back towards the central stage and air off the quarter pipe on the roof to pluck the Secret Tape out of the air.
Jump onto the roof of the Private Detective Dry Cleaners, and grab the cable to the roof of the office building across the street. Climb onto the roof the roof of the building, and locate the gap in the roof. Drop down into the gap and walk towards the Secret Tape at the end of this narrow ledge.
The Secret Tape in New Jersey is located underneath the green bridge. Approach the bridge from the residential side and go down the hill on the left. Walk along the concrete ledge near the river to grab the Tape.
