Tony Hawk Ride (PlayStation 3)


Tony Hawk Ride is the ultimate triumph of gimmick over game. The concept: Build a skateboard peripheral that lets players simulate skateboarding in their living rooms. The result: half-functioning hardware that fails to function with consistency and a...

Great concept, poor execution. The Tony Hawk franchise has certainly had its fair share of ups and downs. When the game first landed on the scene back on the original...

Durable board peripheral ; Solid soundtrack

Insane difficulty curve ; Unresponsive controls ; Short campaign ; Clunky menu system ; Poor presentation

Tony Hawk: RIDE Review for the PS3


Skateboarding didn't used to be a crime.

Bold concept

Broken controller; Never totally in control; Half-assed game; Horrible menus; In-game marketing gone wild

Tony Hawk Ride Review


More than just a sequel name, Tony Hawk is really taking you for a ride.

The controller is fun

The game isn't

Tony Hawk: Ride is a failed experiment that likely sounded great in a staff meeting. The idea isn�t a bad one. It's the game that's the problem. The technology behind the controller is really cool and impressive on its own, but it's paired with a...

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

Skate or die? We'll take the latter

Cool soundtrack ; Kicking the board across the room ; Listening to Tony and pals jibber-jabber

Ridiculously long load times ; Imprecise skateboard controls ; Cramped level designs

Where earlier Tony Hawk games had extremely complex and precise combo systems for pulling off a wide variety of tricks, Ride condenses moves into a few different motions that are easy to confuse and often hard to pull off. Whether you’re a skater...

You Must Be THIS Stupid To Take This Ride


If you can't see the line, congrats, you should avoid Tony Hawk: RIDE.

Visuals more at home on the last generation of hardware than this, the only plus is that they actually show up on the screen. Nope, that's a negative too.

Tony Hawk's latest, Ride, doesn't use conventional controls. See how they work!

Tony Hawk skateboarding games were the first, and until recently, were the best. Then EA released the surprise hit Skate, using innovative controls that made it easier to perform daring tricks and just have a good time. Tony Hawk, on the other hand,...

E3 2009: Tony Hawk: Ride


This week at E3 brought me the chance to embarrass the crap out of myself by playing Tony Hawk: Ride. Nice
