Tony Hawk: Ride

 

Not every sports star can take a year off and still perform at a high level.

Amusing level designs ; Fun at times

Hard to perform moves accurately with skateboard controller ; No in-game trick list ; Vert levels are awkward

They've certainly got an uphill battle. It's going to be difficult to get people to give the game a second chance, with the low review scores and all. $120 is a lot to pay for mediocrity. They had better polish up the game as much as possible and make...

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...

One piece of gaming swag you won't want to collect

An interesting idea ; Fun when it works ; Cool-looking peripheral

Fundamentally flawed gameplay ; Glitchy, hard to control board ; Unimaginative, repetitive, overpriced

You don’t need the remote in this game, but when it switches itself off between game modes you have to reconnect it to skip past an error screen. Annoying? Oh yes. The majority of the game is locked at the start, and you have to play through on every...

Busted controls and stripped-down gameplay make Tony Hawk Ride an overpriced fiasco.

Movements don't register correctly much of the time ; Bad menu organization and other presentation issues ; Challenge mode stinks, and every mode is stripped ; Tiny skating areas ; Really expensive

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...

Tony Hawk: Ride Review

 

Last year around this time, when the usual glut of high-profile holiday releases were piling up, I found myself—of all unexpected places—perched atop my Wii Balance Board. I'd received copies of Shaun White: Road Trip and Skate It, and thought “What...

RIDE is a flawed, but fun entry that's probably going to receive harsher criticism than it deserves. If it sees a sequel, Activision should just bite the bullet and make it a more focused casual franchise, while dedicating a different development team...

I've never fallen off a game before. I've played a lot of Hang-On and that little horsey ride that used to be outside K-Mart, both while not entirely in my right mind, but I always stayed on. I can even stay on a full-size Dance Dance Revolution dance...

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

Tony Hawk: Ride Wii 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

 

While at E3, I saw Tony Hawk talk about RIDE as the next step in gaming innovation but since I couldn't get a chance to try the game on the show floor, I had to put my excitement on hold. But I caught my break a bit later, as the game was on display at...

High quality skateboard peripheral ; Cel-shading graphics are an interesting choice ; Good Soundtrack

Board is way too sensitive, unable to register all commands ; Poor character physics ; Price too high ; Painful loading times, awkward menu system ; Extremely challenging and frustrating game

Peripheral-based games and motion control have been two of the most important developments in this console generation. By combining these two great ideas and merging them with a proven and established franchise, how could a company possibly go wrong?...
