Images from the Tony Hawk P8 demo

Images from the Tony Hawk P8 demo

Activision has announced that a demo of Tony Hawk's Project 8 will be released on the Marketplace today, and here is a bunch of images from the demo. Some of them was previously released in June, so I guess the demo is quite an old build of the game. I also added a group of images released last week which we forgot to write about.

We need some more ingame footage to see how it looks, when the game is in play it looks alot better than images, but these screens looks ok.

Im not a big skateboard game fan , but this looks better than any previous verion i have seen..

Although it does look better than the last efforts (no surprise really) it still doesn't live up to the video's they showed a while back.

makes you wonder how game developers do stuff if the demos are old builds which they usually are. I mean I can program mini games. Surely its not hard for them to release the full base code in a demo but include only 1 song, 1 level and 1 character in the package.

I want a realistic skateboarding game... I really really thought tony hawk 8 was going in that direction from what was seen in the very early videos... but it's the same BS 'grind for 20 yards with amazing balance' kinda arcade crap that I played and got over in teh first and second games in the series... only thing different is it supposedly has nicer animations, but you can hardly tell since the game moves so fast and the transistions between animations suck balls.

I want a Thrasher in the next gen.

What's the deal!? I thought Neversoft was going to make this game realistic!

and what's with the last image??

the demo is up. Only in the US though, so I signed in using my US account, go to all demos instead of new demos and its there. Pretty small at only 300 and odd MBs though. Downloading it now.

342mb , but the demo sucks damn it.

The best parts in the demo are the 60fps performance (with an annoying tick-stutter that skips a frame once a second), somewhat oddball ragdolls (with dave mirra and saints row wannabe ragdoll bailing + burnout aftertouch) and pretty decent graphics.

It's still a super-arcade skateboarding game though.. very little weight or mass (realism) to be found.

I've never liked skategames, but considering the crunchy graphics, I'd might try it when it get's a discount.

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (2 Hours ago)
