IGN: Tony Hawk: Ride Review

The Tony Hawk franchise was in dire need of a reboot, and hopping on the peripheral craze generated by Guitar Hero and Wii Fit wasn't a bad idea. The board itself is solid, which leaves only the execution to blame. Tony Hawk Ride never came together. It straddles an uncomfortable line between casual and hardcore without being satisfying in either respect and it lacks the polish and presentation necessary to cover up the gameplay shortcomings.

Presentation - 2.0
Graphics - 5.5
Sound - 8.0
Gameplay - 5.0
Lasting Appeal - 3.0

I first got hooked on the Tony Hawk games when I first bought my Dreamcast. THPS1 & 2 were played religiously. Sadly, I haven't really gotten into the series since THPS3, and the last one I bought was Project 8, which I thought was mediocre.

I'm hoping one of these years they'll release an old school, arcade-type THPS game like 1&2 were. Just make it simple and fun. I don't know, it just seems like they've pushed for innovation so much they've forgotten about the core gameplay, and that's what made it fun.

Man, and Activision was just talking that good ish a few weeks back about cutting PS3 support. Tell ya what Activision, seeing how you bad you want to turn my living room into a Dave n Busters, and Modern Warfare 2 is so-so to me so far, I kinda would like to call your bluff.

"This thing is just chock full of technology" Tony Hawk describing the skateboard peripheral.

Pro Skater 4 and Underground were good too. If you haven't played them, you should try to get them for $2 or something.
