Our videos of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Our videos of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

With the profusion of HD remakes these days, we should not be surprised to see Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD arrive on Xbox Live Arcade and Sony Entertainment Network. Now the leap in time is pretty huge with this one, as Activision's teams are taking us back to the PS1/N64/Dreamcast era. We received a review code a few days ago and decided to capture a couple of videos for you guys. As you'll see, the visuals have been improved, though some textures still look dated. This version includes the best of the first two episodes, which means they are as challenging as they used to be. There is more inertia in the main character, which brings a little realism to the typically crazy rides of the series.

Hmm looks okay. If gamersyde haven't uploaded it in 60fps, I take it that it doesn't run in 60fps then, which is really disappointing. They are releasing some Tony Hawk 3 levels for it, 11 years since the original game and it runs at half the framerate? Unreal Engine 3 fails again lol.

Good question, I'll ask but, to be honest, I'd be surprised if it does not. Maybe Ghost_Deus forgot. I'll let you know.

From what i heard the game doesn't run with 60fps and there is no split-screen. Quite disappointing.

For the low framerate, there is a simple and universal fix: get the PC version. It's what I'll do.

About the game

    droezelke @KORNdog: Grift just doesn't want to admit it, because his orgasm game is based on lootcrates. (51 minutes ago)

    Nietzsche What bothers me most is it truly is creating gambling habits in small kids that also play these games (8 Hours ago)
  • Nietzsche
    Nietzsche @KORNdog: exactly, it’s nothing short of predatory. It’s literally using reasearch about the chemical reactions of the human brain to get people to spend more money than they want to (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog They want you spending hundreds amassing a room full of dollar store garbage while you search out a t-shirt that actually looks like it wasnt designed by a monkey, (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog I don't like lootcrate/nerd block for the same reasons. Yes you MIGHT get something cool, but that glimmer of hope is exactly what those companies are exploiting. (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog But obviously thats just a single pay ent pirchase. Pubs want you spending weekly unlocking content you might not not even want or need. (8 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Nietzsche: i agree. There os no justifiable reason to have the randomised element of loot boxes. The stuff should just be avalible in a store and you pay for what you want. (8 Hours ago)
