Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD (360)

Let me say this:

BEST. GAME. EVAAR.

It’s a remix of THPS1 and THPS2, with new graphics. Which is instantly awesome. It even retains some of the music from the originals. And it only cost £8-ish. And you know I like Tony Hawk games. Oh yes.

It came out last Wednesday, and I’ve played it a LOT since. It’s pretty much perfect. Some people are saying it has framerate issues (it doesn’t), it’s not big enough (it’s plenty big enough for the cost, and there’s DLC on the way anyway), or it’s full of bugs (there are some odd physics-based glitches following bails, sometimes, but that’s it). And for everyone saying it’s impossible to play on the 360 d-pad – you’re doing it wrong: Use the analogue stick, fools.

So far, I’ve 100%ed all the levels bar the final one (Marseilles), and even on that I only have two goals left to get. After that? Well, a run through with someone else of course!

I did play it online, as much as my shoddy connection would allow (thankfully lag isn’t important too much in this game) and that was fun. It’s a shame there’s no HORSE, or even any offline multiplayer, but they’re the only negative points I can stick in.

Awesome.
