Reviews Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 – the game turns out to be a real hit.
A real treat not only for old stagers!
Fans of the Tony Hawk series have not had it easy in recent years. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 from 2015 caught on badly (32 points on Metacritic) and left a lot of disgust. After almost five years of drought, it was decided to try to revive the brand, but this time it was based on a proven pattern. Instead of a completely new title, we received a set of the first two parts of the game, but in a refreshed version. All levels and available skaters have been kept, but the gameplay and graphics have been improved. It is true that not everyone believed in the success of these works (the average expectations on our website were only 5.2 / 10), but critics are sure that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will satisfy even the greatest skeptics.
Selected Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 reviews:
Almost all reviews score at least 80 points, which is a very good grade. The only exceptions are the reviews of IGN Spain and Jeuxvideo.com, which gave the final score in the form of 75 points. However, it is not difficult to notice that the new one Tony Hawk absolutely every critic liked it. So it turns out that Vicarious Visions studio has once again achieved success in the remake scene (In 2017, people raved about the compilation of three games called Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy).
Reviewers praise the creators above all for capturing the spirit of the original versions, despite significant visual changes. All tricks are as satisfying as twenty years ago, and the pleasure of dialing high scores is still the same. In addition, a few improvements were added, implemented in later parts of the game, which made it more convenient to perform various activities.
One of the best pieces of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 however, according to the majority of voices, there is an audiovisual layer with an emphasis on graphics. All locations known to avid fans of the series have been faithfully reproduced and enriched with a lot of details worthy of 2020. However, these are purely cosmetic changes and they do not have any impact on the structure of the game.
If the journalists’ voices have not dispelled your doubts, then tomorrow, on September 4, you will be able to see for yourself the final quality of this production. The title will debut on PCs via Epic Games Store, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Activision Blizzard is responsible for the release of the kit.
