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.
Excerpt: The common practice of remastering old games from generations past and bringing it to the current generation is something of both a blessing and a curse. On one hand the game is a big nostalgia to those that have played it and it gives an opportunity for younger players to check out some of the...
Summary: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD may accomplish all of its goals, but there is still a lot to be desired. The graphics are outdated, the gameplay is missing a key component, there aren't enough levels and the create-a-character mode has been removed entirely.

Cons: Meager and questionable choice of levels, Awkward bail animations and numerous visual quirks, Missing several game modes from THPS2

Summary: Robomodo har gjort mye riktig i spillet. For de som brukte timesvis på de gamle spillene er denne nye versjonen en bra nostalgisk reise. Kontrollene sitter som de gjorde for 13 år siden, og suget etter de store poengsummene er der fremdeles.
Summary: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD rappresenta il perfetto remake dei primi due capitoli della serie. Pur non aggiungendo nulla di nuovo al pacchetto originale, Robomodo è riuscita con successo a riproporre le ambientazioni, le modalità e il gameplay di una generazione videoludica magnifica, e mai...
