GC07: Tony Hawk Proving Ground gameplay

GC07: Tony Hawk Proving Ground gameplay

After the excellent surprise we had with SKATE we are not really surprised to see that the developers at Neversoft finally have stepped up a bit and moved their series forward. Of course the core gameplay is still there, but there certainly seems to be quite a lot of new stuff too, like you'll be able to see by yourself with this pretty nice video of Tony Hawk Proving Ground.

the series is getting stale but still, that looks way more fun then the skate demo was.

I like skate way better than tony hawk. Skate is a bit more realistic.

thats what i personally dont like about it, its a little too realistic and stops being fun because of it.

Nice video guys, is that off-screen? 'Cause it looks really nice.

hmm not my cup of tea any more. After playing Skate the appeal of the Hawk games has just gone downhill for me.

Granted I like the idea of putting ramps 'n stuff anywhere and expanding the skate-abilty of a spot but its not enough to put me off Skate.

One thing I would like for Skate to borrow from the Hawk games is the ability to get off your board and reach places that would have been impossible if you were on your plank.

If you like a more realistic skateboarding game then Skate is for you.
If you like your skateboarding games arcadey then Tony Hawks is for you!
If you have muchos cash flow then buy both!
If you don't like skateboarding games then avoid both like the plague!

simple ^_^

i dont like skateboarding at all but skate was fun, better than this anyway

hawk and skate are two different worlds, both of which i love and appreciate. gotta love the arcadey, action-packed feeling of tony hawk, and at the same time the realism and immersion of skate.

To each is his own. Personally the over the top crap that THPS has gets boring really fast. It's so easy to pull of these impossible tricks, where Skate takes skill. Sakte owns the heck out of this game. TH is dead to me after playing skate. I hope SKATE sells well enought to make a sequel because, it's a true skateboarding game.

I think in skate, you should be able to get off the board. i know it's minor, but sometimes, i'd rather walk to where i want to begin my next trick than try to roll there....they are two totally different games though. i'd play skate for hours, and THPS when i want a quick fix...

stake was a little too technical using the right stick. i prefer tony hawk's button pressing.

Looks Great, I think this will be better than skate.

The more I play the skate demo the more I love it. Conversely, the more I play the Tony Hawk series the more loathsome it becomes. Skate was a little awkward at first but once you get into it become incredibly satisfying.

To put it simply, Tony Hawk's killed skating games for me and skate brought me back in.

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker difference was barely noticeable. Checked some sites, they recommend at least 1.98m, so i do that, difference was instantly noticeable, lol. The question is, do you want to sit 2m away from a 65''? :P (6 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I have to come back to that about 4K, me and my stupid ass didn't take into account the viewing distance. Stupid me was watching both 1080p and 4K Netflix at like 3.5m away from the 65 inch TV. (9 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks ooo Pyre on discount and it comes out next month! I didn't even realize it was coming so soon (9 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril @Moonwalker: I imagine the bitrate for most 4K streaming is going to be significantly less than the bitrate on most 1080p blu-rays. (12 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker These shows already are crisp as can be on the B6, not demo video crisp. Was kinda expecting that from Netflix 4K. Guess i really need to see a 4K BR disc. (15 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I deciced to upgrade my Netflix to 4K, was curious. Gotta be honest, watched episodes of Better call Saul, House of Cards and so on, i have a very hard time seeing a difference at all. Disappointing. (15 Hours ago)
