Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD Video Game ReviewWritten by Michael Siebenaler | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD (Activision)
Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD has been enhanced as an X-Box Arcade style game as a collection of seven playable levels from the first and second installments of Tony Hawk Pro Skater games. In a timed freestyle course players must guide their chosen Pro Skater through the challenging jumps and tricks, collecting cash and power ups. The enhance visuals improve the look and the classic controls give players a nice nostalgic gaming experience. Players can grab bonuses in the SKATE mode by collecting the letters. Using cash and bonuses collected you can upgrade the game with additional tracks and other goodies. This game was sort of a button masher, and I found creating tricks can be difficult. The music soundtrack includes classic like Public Enemy/Anthrax’s “Bring the Noise” along with new songs. The game contains no local multiplayer mode, create-a-park mode or create-a-skater mode, but does have an online mode. There are player and global leaderboards and, hopefully, upcoming downloadable content (**1/2). A PlayStation Network version also recently launched.
