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....

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...

Skating on shaky ground.

Sturdy, sleek board peripheral; energetic indie rock soundtrack

Inconsistent motion controls; steering is a mess; brief career and bland multiplayer options; it's $120

Bad idea. Worse execution.

Exhibition is a little more entertaining, simply because you're not bogged down by the need to complete the tricks the game throws at you. Being able to skate around and explore without the need to complete objectives allows you to try and get...

Seriously -- is this game any good, or what?

Ride ships November 17 for the aforementioned systems. I asked Activision reps for the final price, but they wouldn't comment. Really strange given that the game is so close to release -- why keep it a secret? Online retailers have listed the price as...

Tony Hawk: Ride - Review


It finally became cheap enough to review!

Whether this will alter in the forthcoming sequel is questionable, but for now there is no way of looking beyond the frailties. For all its good intentions, it’s just face planted on the half-pipe.

Tony Hawk: Ride PS3 Review


Tony Hawk Ride, is it worth it? In short, no, but allow me to explain my abrupt answer. There was a lot of mixed feelings when the Ride controller was first announced, a mixture of anticipation for a new dimension in skateboarding games, and...

Tries something new

Board just simply isn't responsive enough ; Big ask for the price ; Nothing else works with it

Tony Hawk Ride


Tony Hawk Ride for PS3 Review - This is an expensive peripheral-based game where the expensive peripheral doesn't work; the other cock-ups are just extra nails in the coffin.

The peripheral looks nice

You never feel in control of your actions

Soul Calibur IV for the PS3 - Play as Darth Vader or Yoda!


Soul Calibur IV is an amazing fighting game for the Sony PlayStation 3 video game console. It features a huge cast of characters with tons of options, plus you can fight other players online just like they were in your living room. If you are ...

Great graphics and controls, online play is cool

Getting an online fight going sometimes is a hassle
