Activision won't be sending out review codes for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 until launch day. Whether this means the game will ship dead-on-arrival or not won't be known until September 29th.
Not a good sign
It looked weak at E3, a change of art style wont change quality. Be a shame really if it turns out less than the memories of previous entries.
It's just going to be a little arcade game with basic gameplay ripped right out of the late 90s. I'd probably pay $15. If its full retail price that would be laughable.
Oh wonderful This sounds so promising
Seriously, as soon as this was announced it looked like crap.
It was sarcasm lol
Never trust activision.
Activision can 'Frontside Pop Shove It' up their 'Backside Big Spin' :)
That's not a real move
LMAO!!!! My morning has been made!
Pop-shove it is real, but 'backside big-spin' doesn't make any sense lol. I mean, assuming the spin is an actual aerial move, involving lateral rotation, not sure how back/frontside would apply to it. /overanalyzation
ha ha. im not sure whether they're real or not. I just done a quick look on google and they came up. I think they make my point though. :)
Haha I thought it was a good laugh
Game has been looking very mediocre, won't be shocked if it gets fairly lukewarm reviews across the board. Feels more like a $20 game rather than a $60 one.
It does seem more like a budget 20$ game. But thats activision for you.
This game should have been an arcade game...
I hate Activision.
Will be renting this for my PS2
Yea my ps3 has seen better looking titles. Despite the argument of pro skater games not being graphical i cannot say that is even a valid point. $60 games should not be so sub-par looking. That said I'll be picking it up next year when its bargain bin price. And they will still make profit off it.
I'm expecting a 5/10 score. I'll maybe pick this up for $15 in a month. Hopefully they just make the tony hawk arcade game from last gen backwards compatible, then this is all a moot point.
Lol THPS has been dead since the first Underground.
