I was a huge fan of the old school tony hawk games, i bought this one without trying it and i didnt like it, not sure if it just didnt age well or i grew out of it, but i couldnt play much of it.
It could be you, but quite a bit of people accept that it is just a terrible HD remake.
There is something "off" about the physics that ruins the game. There are random moments in the middle of a run where you will bail for no reason. The levels looks horrible, just drab colors and poorly lit. The soundtrack is missing tons of the good songs that everyone thinks of when they think 'Classic THPS." Tons of features like Create-A-Skater or Create-A-Park are absent. No split-screen multiplayer.
It was just altogether horrible and that is coming from someone who absolutely adores the series. Using the Unreal Engine to build the game was a terrible mistake and the physics and controls suffered for it. They should have just made a straight-forward HD upgrade of the first two games.
deal of the week, they start/end on tuesdays. wed night 12am pst
Actually they start/end when Tuesday begins at midnight PST (not Wednesday at midnight). It's best to get your purchases in by Monday night, but they sometimes last through Tuesday afternoon if you want to risk it.
Sadly nothing I'm interested in this week. Of the ones I don't have, I never thought much of Scott Pilgrim (I tried the demo and didn't care much for another Double Dragon like side scroller button masher with blocky graphics) nor Daggerdale which had a lot of screen tearing and looked rather bland. I'd rather play the Torchlights.
