Tony Hawk: RIDE

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: A ton of improvements could be made, most based solely on decades-old arcades. Gameplay is not fun; most of the time is spent performing one trick and hoping it reads properly. This new Tony Hawk title fails in every way that Activision wanted it to succeed: it’s more difficult, it’s less fun, and...

  • Summary: Tony Hawk Ride fails to simulate skateboarding and costs a bundle.
  • Pros: Skateboard peripheral is durable; good soundtrack; skating the half pipe can be enjoyable.
  • Cons: Skateboard fails to interpret your moves correctly far too often; game feels rushed and incompletely; extremely steep price.

A Frustrating Ride

  • Excerpt: We all knew the Tony Hawk series was due for an overhaul, but I didn't expect anything like this! First, a recap. I didn't play the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater until it was published by Crave for the Dreamcast in 2000.

  • Excerpt: This, here, is the end of a franchise. The absolute rock-bottom. It is the equivalent of a Hollywood star getting caught slinging racial slurs, or going crazy and shaving their head. This is Tony Hawk RIDE, and from the moment the gaming world saw it, we knew it was destined for failure.

3 December 2009
  • Summary: 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 shallow game devoid of excitement.
  • Pros: The included skateboard peripheral is durable
  • Cons: 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

13 February 2010
  • Summary: Virtuelles Skaten macht Spaß, das beweisen die Tony Hawk-Spiele seit Jahren. Doch fühlt sich das Ganze mit einem Pad in der Hand einfach nicht »echt« an. Um diesem Umstand Abhilfe zu schaffen, veröffentlichte Activision Tony Hawk: Ride , ein Skating-Game, das mit einem Controller daher kommt, der...
  • Pros: Lustige Einführung, Ein Trostpunkt für die Idee an sich
  • Cons: Der Controller funktioniert nicht, Grafisch & technisch nicht auf der Höhe der Zeit, Onlinemodus ist praktisch nicht existent

Tony Hawk: Ride

Gamereactor
27 November 2009
  • Conclusion: Skateboarding ist der Sport meines Lebens. Über 20 Jahre bin ich Skateboarder, fast so lange wie Tony Hawk. Bis heute war und ist immer ein Board am Start. Videospiele sind die zweite Liebe, auch bis heute. Skateboardingspiele müssten also mein logisch ultimatives Freizeitvergnügen sein.
  • Pros: Immer noch die Idee und das Plastikboard
  • Cons: Schlechte Steuerung, unspielbare Schwierigkeitsstufen und Modi, zweitklassige Grafik
