Summary: To call Tony Hawk Ride unplayable would be an understatement. If this is the much-anticipated Tony Hawk reboot we've been waiting for, then I'm fine waiting a little longer for a better game. The skateboard control is cool looking and sturdy, but it's unresponsive and linked to a game that feels like a second rate Skate clone. This is the type of game that could very well kill the Tony Hawk franchise for good! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Summary: Tony Hawk: Ride is a brave attempt to refresh the series with realistic motion controls and a pricey new peripheral. Sadly, the motion controls are awkward and laggy, while the core design is just as focused on the combo-centric gameplay of the older games. It's got its heart in the right place but doesn't quite have the brains to match.
Pros: Peripheral is solid and durable, Manuals feel great
Cons: Motion controls for tricks don't work, Steering is a nightmare, Gameplay gets repetitive and mechanical, Controls have noticeable lag
