Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 recently received a new patch, but is it too late for the game to be redeemed?
I think, Yes. The outfit is trash. They didn't have it in their last installment, and this new one, the same.
Of course it is. Activision only made this unpolished game because their license was about to expire soon
It's the Fantastic 4 of videogames.
Well it was good at one time. The Fantastic Four movies have never been good. Hahaha
There is no purpose to them keeping the license. I think it may have been the other way around, they HAD to make like 7 games within a period of time and if they didn't then they paid Mr. Hawk for failing. I mean think about it, Tony Hawk isn't a strong name anymore. The skateboarding scene is no where near as big as it once way. The franchise itself is tired and old. Activision would actually be better off branding a new skateboarding name anyways.
its too late for this game, period. Regardless of how tolerable future patches might make it, everyone knows it was a shameless cash grab before activision loses its rights to the tony hawk IP. everything about the games rushed development shows. Im POSITIVE tony hawk skating games could be great again once the series finds a new development team. the first 4 pro skater games along with underground 1 & 2 were all excellent titles. if tony hawk pro skater 6 ever happens, it could be the best skating game ever. just dont judge the series too harshly on this trash game cause the series is so much bigger.
Even if it was COMPLETELY fixed, there's still not much to love about Pro Skater 5.
The only way I'll get this is if they give it away with PS+, even then I'll be disappointed that Sony gave money to someone involved with this trash.
It might be too late for the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise all together. I said this in a Tombraider article, when a franchise is long dormant or had only lackluster entries, then a bad game can finish it off or put it into hiding for a very long time. Tombraiders reboot was stellar and ensured it got a sequel in quick fashion. Tony Hawk will likely never surface again until a new generation of gamers come up who dont know what it is and how far it fell from grace. Honestly Activision, this is just shoddy. Youre losing the license, thats fine, but what youve done is like licking all the donuts because youre too full to eat anymore so no one else gets to enjoy them. BOOOOO !
That analogy though lol awesome
I think Tony Hawk is partly responsible as well. I mean, his brand and name in the skateboarding industry is about the same as the quality of this latest Activision title.
This game did feel rushed just like battlefront. Battlefront could of have more content but they rushed it and released it a month before the movie.
Lets give this game credit: its the first Ps2 game to run on current gen emulation !
