If you thought Activision will be redeeming themselves and bring out a much better Tony Hawk game, you are definitely wrong.
The fifth Tony Hawk Pro Skater game was receiving poor reviews, something that is not very surprising, especially as the game is becoming more terrible right after the third Tony Hawk game. So we check out some of the popular game reviewers and see what made them think that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is a terrible game and you should not get it.
Within THPS5 lies a basic skating game that’s difficult to enjoy, because you have to jump over numerous hoops and ignore a plethora of obvious issues to find the smallest amount of fun. Previous THPS games were able to capture your imagination, and motivate you through character progression, gear, interesting levels, and even a great soundtrack. The soundtrack in THPS5 is good enough, but the game is riddled with technical glitches and design missteps, making it a huge step back for the series
Tony Hawk?s Pro Skater 5?s rare moments of nostalgic joy are drowned out by its abundance of poorly thought out levels, control problems, bugs, and its glaring lack of attitude. It boggles the mind that a $60 game in 2015 can be riddled with so many technical issues
If Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 were a budget game, I’d have a hard time recommending it to anyone. At full retail price, it’s a disgrace. Labeling this as the fifth entry in the series has effectively backfired: it’s a constant reminder of how much greater the originals were, and how much you’d rather be playing them instead.
But if you still want to buy the game, nobody is stopping you, but we already warned you. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is already available for the home consoles
