Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD – Review (xbla)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: It’s fair to say that Tony Hawk’s skating games have gone from the dizzy heights of classic videogames to the almighty low ebb of producing something so complicated and off the mark with Shred that it lost its accessibility and the franchise was somewhat doomed.
Summary: I still really like " Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD ". It’s only got 4 levels I care about, which makes it pretty light on content for the price, and the trick system feels weird with manuals but not reverts or decent lip tricks.

Conclusion: It’s a good trip down memory lane but it’s hard to say whether it holds it’s own. That’s really up to the individual who’s playing it. To me, I think it hangs with the original series, but it’s definitely not at the top of them all.
Summary: Ten years ago, after seeing the overwhelming response to their first few Pro Skater games, Activision signed a deal that would keep Tony Hawk with the company until 2015. While that may have seemed like a can't-miss deal a decade ago, these days there's a lot of baggage attached to the Tony Hawk...
Excerpt: Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater was a staple during the late 1990s on the Nintendo 64 and PlayStation, where almost anyone that picked up a controller right before the turn of the century most definitely spent some time shredding up the Warehouse and School, grinding and kickflipping their way to those sick...
Excerpt: There are some critics out there (maybe most of them) who are much better at Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater than I am. You can read their reviews and get the sense that they are people who put together million-point combos in their sleep.
