Tony Hawk: RIDE


A ton of improvements could be made, most based solely on decades-old arcades. Gameplay is not fun; most of the time is spent performing one trick and hoping it reads properly. This new Tony Hawk title fails in every way that Activision wanted it to...

Tony Hawk: Shred


+ The board peripheral is still an interesting idea…

- …too bad it doesn’t work with any reliability., - Really poor level design., ? Who decided it would be okay to try this again?

Disappointing, expensive skateboard controller ruins sim.


Parents need to know that this game, as with past Tony Hawk games, isn't too controversial in its "Teen"-rated content. Along with some animated violence and a little bit of blood seen during a bad spill, the game is quite tame -- except for some...

Tony Hawk Ride


Tony Hawk Ride fails to simulate skateboarding and costs a bundle.

Skateboard peripheral is durable; good soundtrack; skating the half pipe can be enjoyable.

Skateboard fails to interpret your moves correctly far too often; game feels rushed and incompletely; extremely steep price.

Tony Hawk: Ride


The last time I was on a skateboard for any real length of time was in the late 70's. I wasn't good, but I could get from one point to another without falling off. One day Ii hit the curb, my board broke in half, and that would be it. Now Tony Hawk:...

Good direction for the franchise

The controller is too touchy and doesn't respond properly all the time ; More time spent developing the board than the game apparently ; If you are challenged with ballance, you're not going to play the game well at all

Ultimately, I think Tony Hawk: Ride was rushed out the door for Christmas shoppers, rather than Activision allowing the proper development time necessary for a truly revolutionary game. Instead we get a half-baked novelty. Without even the option of...

Tony Hawk: Ride


The Tony Hawk video game franchise was due for an overhaul, but I don't think many expected what Tony Hawk himself announced at this year's E3. The new Tony Hawk, simply known as Ride, would include its own skateboard controller. The idea is marvelous,...

I had high hopes for Ride, but they've been dashed by some major controller issues. I believe we'll be seeing more from this controller at some point, hopefully under much better circumstances. That said, I still had fun with Ride in spurts....

Tony Hawk: Ride


Ever wanted to actually get on a skateboard, but simply couldn't find the time to leave your living room?  Having lost a lot of market- and mind-share to its competition, Activision went bac...
