Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD Review

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is fun for the most part, but infuriating control issues, crazy bugs and various omissions make you wonder why a game that isn't an untouched HD port wasn't bolstered.

Insta-regret. As a big fan of THPS2 (100% on every format it's been released on - don't judge me) I am massively disappointed in this. It's no exaggeration to say the iPhone version of THPS2 controls better than this HD remix and the omission of local 2 player is borderline tragic.

As Sam rightly points out, this looks great and there is some fun to be had but I can't help but want to play the game this so easily could have been, rather than the one I downloaded. It reeks of missed opportunity and cut-corners. If they can patch the controls and introduce 2 player in a update further down the line (not even sure if that's possible) then this will go up in my (and I'm sure many others) estimation.

Hmmm, i too wanted so much more. I haven't played it yet but the review is a bit of a disappointment but hay-ho i'm still sure there's some good old nostalgic fun to be had. So when it arrives on ps3 ill bag myself a download. I'm gonna check to see if there's a trial on xbox for a quick sample, well if my machine works that is, i aint switched it on in months.

The answer to your offline 2 player question is in the review Smile

Personally I think this review is pretty harsh. Agreed it's ridiculous that the game is without HORSE mode and they could have put a few more stages in there (YAY PAID DLC) but I don't think the controls are particularly bad - if you've played the old Tony Hawk's games then you should be able to pick up and get back into it fairly quickly. The graphics look awesome and I haven't had a single lag or bug issue (I played for about 2 hours last night). Oh, also No Create a Skater is a bad move IMO

All in all I've been having a good time with it, i haven't had the control frustrations sam had. I'd recommend giving it a go!
