Tony Hawk: RIDE review for the XBOX360

 

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

 

I've played various Tony Hawk games since the Dreamcast and I've had a ton of fun with them, especially playing with others. The past few games with his name has been a hit or miss and it was time the franchise got a reboot. With the popularity of...

While the skateboard controller seems to feel well built, the execution leaves a lot to be desired. You'll be spending more time fighting with the controller than trying to have fun with the game. Even then, the game's just not that enjoyable. Maybe...

The Tony Hawk series has been on a roller coaster ride ever since the emergence of its competition (ie. Skate…etc). The games have been failing and the series needed a reboot to keep the players coming back to it. With help from Tony Hawk himself as...

The technology inside the board peripheral doesn’t hold up and while the game had a chance to shine, it ultimately fails. The controls are clunky and the load times are horrendous. While it may provide some fun with a group of friends around, you’ll...

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...

The Tony Hawk series of have dominated the skateboarding game scene for most of this decade, however, more competition lately from the likes of EA's Skate, and less innovation from Tony Hawk, has meant that the once powerful franchise has taken a few...

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...

with its fishing rod controller. If you want to get in on the fun, you might need a home-equity loan to expand your game room to include some sizable storage closets for all the wares

however, doesn’t do it all that well, especially if you’re trying to do something complex and the board is tilting under your feet unnaturally and pitching you off balance as you try to make a rail grab (toward one of the sensors)—though if you’re on...

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...

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

Tony Hawk: RIDE - Review

 

As I stood there watching Tony Hawk launch his all-new skateboarding game in New York City yesterday I began to see why the team created this completely new experience for fans. Tony Hawk is no longer the twenty-something X-Games champion that he once...

Editor's Note: I am not recommending this game to everyone, Tony Hawk: RIDE was created for those gamers looking for something different, and casual. The game is played at it's best only on the casual setting, which for children or other casual gamers...
