Take a look at the big visual improvement in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD compared to the original.
Looks great. This was definitely my favourite of the pro skaters, I was still playing it until about 2008.
it even adds a tiny baldspot on tony hawk! loving it
No contest The PS1 version looks way better
I know right. I mean just check out that move he's doing. Sliding with the deck below the rail? Intense.
i know remaking video games is the IT thing now but really THPS1? i spent way WAY WAY more time with THPS2.. heck i finished the game with EVERY CHARACTER! even kid Tony. THPS3 is where it went downhill..
If i remember correctly this isn't a direct HD remake of the first game. They are just calling it THPS HD but I'm pretty sure it has levels from both the original and the 2nd game. Pretty sure I read that in many of the articles talking about it soon after it was announced. I'm personally looking forward to it. This could be exactly what the franchise needs. Times have changed and it's harder to get people to buy a full blown THPS game and the stupid gimmicks that were ruining the franchise really didn't help. However smaller PSN or XBLA releases sounds like a great idea.
Well if you took any time to look further into the game outside of this screen shot you would know its actually taking the better levels, moves, characters and features from the first few and putting them into this remake. Its essentially a tribute to the PS1 versions that many loved and made the genre so big for a decade+.
Pro Skater HD mixes both THPS1 and THPS2.
I must strongly disagree. THPS1 started the madness and I can see how it stands out. THPS4 was the BUSINESS though.
my apologies.. i honestly saw the screenshots and most of them show the levels from THPS1.. but i will probably check this out. it does look good and no stupid board. Though i will have SSX very soon to play.. hmmm
Man graphics have came a long way. Still getting better every year.
This needs a demo.
It likely will considering it will be coming to XBLA and every game on their needs a trial version.
I'll be watching this one. Not sure if I'm going to buy it as it's harder to play these more arcadey games nowadays (get bored far too quickly), and I've sort of grown out of the whole skateboarding thing. Maybe I'll give it a shot if there is a demo, and maybe the nostalgia-factor will be what it takes to make me buy it.
Looks miles better. I wont be getting it though cause I am hooked on SKATES gameplay.
Haven't played a Tony Hawk game since Proving Ground. Might buy this, looks great. Though, I wish they would make either another Pro Skater or Underground 3
Will it be compatible with my awesome skateboard controller that I got from Ride? I think Shred and Ride were the better Tony Hawk games.
I'm guessing you had 5 bubbles before you posted that comment......
I just want skate 4
THPS series are still the best skateboarding games ever made. Can't wait for this
I hope Jaime Thomas is still a playable character.
As long as the soundtrack has a similar feel to the 1st and 2nd games; I won't mind. P.S. The graphics are really great so far on the HD version.
I enjoyed THUG a lot. I wish they would have remade that one. I would have bought it. But I will probably end up buying this one anyways.
i find now, since i havent touched a tony hawk game in 5+ years, the controls are whack...and honestly, skate 2 takes the cake, i would say 3, but online population is non existent, and ppl spam the darkflips way too much, but i do enjoy it on hardcore.....but im willing to throw down clam for this...for shiots and giggles most likely, unless online is as good as skate
