Tony Hawk: Ride - ZTGD Review

ZeroTolerance writes: The Tony Hawk franchise has certainly had its fair share of ups and downs. When the game first landed on the scene back on the original PlayStation it was celebrated as being the pioneer of bringing extreme sports into the mainstream of the videogame realm. Here we are nearly a decade later with the latest release in the franchise and with it comes what the company is calling the most evolutionary step for the series. Tony Hawk Ride takes the series into a new era by introducing a peripheral that lets you separate yourself from the controller and actually get on a skateboard to perform the tricks yourself. What we end up with is a great idea that feels rushed and faulty in its execution.

After playing this piece of crap game I longed for the days of Tony Hawk 1 and 2 on PS1. What a rip off at $120 too. Oh well, soccer moms will buy it for their ADD kids anyway regardless of bad reviews everywhere.

Never say no one. There’s always going to be someone who’s contrarian who’s gotta say they’re actually a fan of one of these

i had the jaguar and cd32 and yeah, their stock controllers werent all that. They got the job done but there were better ones. The 6 button jag controller felt better to hold and incorporated more sculpting for the hands and fingers to reach the number pad easier. And the competition pro cd32 was like a genesis controller in shape and comfort. Way better than the stock one.

As for kinect, it worked, it was fun but i liked the non gaming uses for it. some people got pretty creative with reverse engineering that thing.

The Ouya controller was incredibly poor. Looked nice but quality of doad buttons triggers was that of a cheap knockoff you get for £1.99 on ebay

That intel wireless gamepad was the inspiration for the 360 wireless racing wheel (and that works really well). I'd say one the author forgot would be the activator from sega.
