Tony Hawk Pro Skater
6 November 2012
Excerpt: XBOX’s Summer of Arcade 2012 edition starts off with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD which is a somewhat updated mash-up of some of the locations from the early days of the franchise but with a shiny new coat of paint such as an updated roster and soundtrack.
Fun remake, but unrealistically portrays injuries.

Summary: Parents need to know that Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is a high-definition remake of one of the most popular skateboarding games ever made. A downloadable game found in the XBLA or PSN, it celebrates the sport of skateboarding.
Excerpt: The original lyrics are intact, though not delivered with the same force or inflection; the melodies are discernible, though many are well out-of-tune; the singer's voice and the band's instrument tones are modernized and overproduced in the worst way.
Excerpt: Some games just weren’t meant for HD revivals. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD attempts to rejuvenate one of the early 2000’s most popular franchises - the herald of skating games as we now know them - with updated graphics, physics, modes, and online play.
Pros: The initial rush of nostalgia, Competing for high scores on the leaderboards, Rediscovering the perfect line
Cons: Wonky new physics, The lack of your favorite levels, Next to no customization options
