About the Game

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD takes the best elements of the classic THPS games and gives them a fresh update to create an all new skateboarding experience for PC. The gameplay in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD focuses on the satisfaction of linking sick tricks for maximum points. Combining sharp visuals with the best controls ever in a Tony Hawk game, the feel is cutting edge yet timeless.

Key Features

  • THPS and THPS2 gameplay comes to PC!
  • HD Upgrade: Game was rebuilt and polished by Robomodo using Neversoft’s original level models.
  • Classic levels: The style and feel of the best 7 levels from THPS and THPS2 (Warehouse, School 2, Mall, Hangar, Venice, Marseille and Phoenix Downhill Jam) refreshed for today. The levels are exactly the same specs as the originals - every gap, SKATE Letter, etc is exactly where you remember it but looks a hell of a lot better!
  • The Top Pros: Today’s biggest skate pros round out the cast including: Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins Pastrana, Riley Hawk and, of course, Tony Hawk himself. Each has 8 boards, 3 special moves, and an alternate outfit.
  • Refined controls: The skaters’ animations, tricks and combos reflect the evolution of the THPS games. Animations are improved, the tricks have been redone (and some new special tricks added), even “skater celebrations” have been added for big combos.
  • Manuals and Reverts: You can do manuals as part of trick combos in THPS HD. Given the fact that this game combines the best gameplay from THPS1 and THPS2, Reverts will not work as part of trick combos in the initial launch of THPS HD as that mechanic was not introduced until THPS3. However, reverts will work in the post-release DLC for the THPS3 levels, as those levels were originally designed to accommodate this.
  • Endlessly fun objectives: Players pursue the same global and level-specific goals as the original games, including S-K-A-T-E, Secret DVD (used to be VHS tape!), and many more.
  • In-Game Soundtrack: It is about half classic THPS tracks and half new ones. Includes Goldfinger’s “Superman” and the Anthrax/Public Enemy collaboration “Bring the Noise”.
  • Downloadable content: Coming post-release, The “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack” DLC includes levels from THPS3 including Airport, Canada, and LA. New pros included are legends Steve Caballero and Geoff Rowley.
  • In Game Map View: Pause and see the location of objectives and gaps.
  • Quick Restart: Back button allows you to quickly restart their session. Perfect for the obsessive gamer who is looking to achieve the perfect combo.

Faithful to a fault, and doesn't live up to the potential this could've had. I'm only an hour in, but I'm confident that's an accurate portrayal of the game.

This (with it's DLC) feels more or less like a mish-mash of Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1, 2 and 3 with HD graphics. If they had taken everything from these games and thrown it into one amazing release, it probably would've done better critically. Instead they hand picked certain levels, hand picked certain skaters, lost a good chunk of the original soundtracks (mostly due to licensing issues), ditched the multiplayer found in the originals (local or online), ditched any kind of create-a-skater and called it a day. It doesn't feel like the "complete" collection it could've been. Like a greatest hits collection from a band that doesn't include all of their biggest songs, it's not really a game that needs to be in every THPS fans collection.

Now, that doesn't necessarily mean the game is bad. Lacking graphical options (outside of resolution) and wonky ragdolling aside, it plays exactly like a faithful HD rerelease should. If you loved the games back in the PS1/N64 days, this will absolutely give you the THPS fix you've probably been craving. (If you didn't or have "grown up" since then, it'll probably seem overly simple and dated.) The game was always meant to be simple though. Simple, but completely over the top... it's by no stretch of the imagination a juggernaut in modern physics. You grind things you have no business grinding, you'll jump gaps that would put the Springfield Gorge to shame... but that was the fun of it... and it still is fun. You'll still spend hours collecting SKATE, hidden tapes (DVD's), busting up bells around School II, making your way down the Downhill Jam. Getting high, pro and sick scores. And all the little challenges nested into each level, that you'll have to explore and find... unless, of course, you still remember where everything is.

If you can find it for less than $5 and wouldn't mind a quick nostalgic shot in the arm, I'd definitely say give it a shot. Just know that it's not the "complete collection" that it could've been.

If you have nostalgia for the early Tony Hawk games, and believe me no-one has more than me, You might want this game.

You shouldn't get it though. The whole thing feels spongy, the controls not as tight as they should be, and the balance system is heavily flawed. It will practically auto bail you If you attempt to get a combo going fort longer than 15 seconds or so.

The Remade levels aren't bad, but the actual skating and trick engine is nowhere near the originals and you'll be disappointed. Go find a copy of THPS2 and play that instead, it still works OK on Win7.

Pretty bad Tony game. The speed is gimped and the physics are very random. You may go flying, and you may not. It is pretty though, and they did acquire the licensing to play "Superman" by Goldfinger.

Is it terrible? No. But it is a remake that is actually worse than any other.

Usually a remake is taking what was, and adding just enough to make it better. They took alot of the original boarders off, like Kareem Campbell and Bam, and added others I never even heard of.

First play on the first level, I managed to fall on the top of the half pipe going to jump(which in every other game would land perfect) I tripped over air, and fell through the entire floor.

I understand the original didn't have switchs between grinds and manuals, but I would assume a remake would keep it as a improvement.

I would rate this a 6/10. I played so many tony hawk games from first one on n64, to THUG 1 and 2 on ps2. I never played one like this. Pro skater 3 will remain my favorite.

I can't say this clear enough...

You won't get warm tingly nostalgic feelings. Instead you'll get your hopes up. The sound barely ever works correctly. Typically its extremely quiet until you hit on object (glass) and then its deafening loud. The community had to find fixes for resolution and controls.

To top it all off the game randomly just will drop your save. Absolutely a waste of time and one of the biggest dissapointments in a video game I've ever experienced.

I want to tell you to buy this because its a lot of fun. I want to tell you about all the nostalgia.

I don't want to tell you about the lack of multiplayer. I don't want to tell you about the poor and sometimes buggy physics.

I enjoy this game, its okay, but nothing special. Buy it for nostalgia and nothing else.
