Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

 

Some classic games aren't made around a great idea, but rather, great execution. The idea of a points-based arcade skateboard game wasn't exactly radical in 1999, with games like 720° and Skate or Die! predating Tony Hawk's Pro Skater by a over a...

Sorry, I’ll zip it and tuck my enthusiasm back in but I can’t help it. I love these games, which makes it so sad to see Activision and Robomodo tarnish Neversoft’s legacy. An HD upgrade should make a game look and feel as good as you remember it....

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD review: Feels like a 12-year-old game

 

The times, they are a-changin'. In this XBLA-bound reworking of the first two Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games built on an entirely new HD engine, you don't collect secret VHS tapes anymore; you collect DVD's. And you can do it as Tony Hawk's son Riley.

Seven classic levels re-engineered in fetching HD ; Some classic skaters, and more to unlock ; Half the tracklist

At its core a 12 year-old relic ; Missing most of the sequels' tricks ; Limited controls prohibit big combos ; The other half of the tracklist
