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. Opinion: It is also good to see that a game that I could label as having been “my game” more than a few years ago get the best HD re-tread I’ve seen to date.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD (PC) review

26 September 2012
  • 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 greater games of generations past. However, at the same time it might also mean that the game hasn’t aged well and will end up with poor results.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

Defunct Games
20 August 2012
  • 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 The graphics are outdated, the gameplay is missing a key component, there aren't enough levels and the create-a-character mode has been removed entirely. If you can get around these disappointments, you'll find a good, but not great, skating game for cheap! Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

Strategy Informer

  • Conclusion: It's this feeling, the one of crushing disappointment, that riddles this HD update with frustration. Activision killed the series for a reason, and there's nothing here to suggest that decision was a bad one. Veterans might get some excitement out of this, but nostalgia is soon overpowered by reality. If you feel like reminiscing with the Tony of old, I'd recommend getting your PS1 out instead.

Expert Review

20 July 2012
  • Summary: For better or worse, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD makes for an awfully appropriate encapsulation of the series as a whole. Activision's seminal skateboarding franchise came charging out of the gate, inspiring a generation of virtual skaters before a yearly onslaught of sequels ultimately drained the series of all its momentum.
  • Pros: Plays like classic Tony Hawk, Nicely detailed HD visuals, Plenty of unlockables
  • Cons: Meager and questionable choice of levels, Awkward bail animations and numerous visual quirks, Missing several game modes from THPS2

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Review

19 July 2012
  • Conclusion: For starters, for a game that takes the ‘best’ of THPS and THPS2, there seems to be quite a bit missing. On the skater front yes the greatest of all time Rodney Mullen is back, but why is Lyn-Z Adams replacing Elissa Steamer and where is Kareem Campbell, Rune Glifberg and Bob Burnquist, yes the Bob Burnquist, all of whom were in both THPS and THPS2? How can it be a revisit when skaters are replaced?

  • 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.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD für XBLA im Test

29 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Tony Hawk HD ist ein zweischneidiges Schwert: Für Neulinge ein kleines, feines Skate-Erlebnis, für Veteranen leider eine mittelgroße Enttäuschung.
  • Pros: knackige Texturen, verbesserte Animationen, alte und neue Hits, bekannte Soundschnipsel, das feine alte Skater-Flair aus den 90ern, zeitlos gute Spielmechanik, sieben klassische Levels, motivierende Punkte- und Secret-Jagd, Wiedersehen mit bekannten Skatern, spaßige Multiplayer-Modi
  • Cons: Flair des Originals ist weg, ungewohnte neue Physik, fehlender Splitscreen, fragwürdige Level- und Spielmodiauswahl, keine individuellen Skater und Parks, selten Glitches und marginale Bugs, einige Skater und Songs gestrichen
