DHGF: For anybody that hasn’t played any of the original four Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater titles, the following paragraphs might read with a shinier veneer of nostalgia than expected for a ‘modern’ video game review. For this reviewer, commenting on Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD is as much an exercise in trying to restrain my nostalgia as it is to comment on the game’s merits and flaws. Not every game is perfect, nor is every attempt at reviewing one. But through nostalgia, many things are possible. Certain things can be overlooked – perhaps even outright forgiven – provided that certain fundamentals remain, as experience becomes memory, which might motivate a purchase on PSN.
