Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 Reviews

There are no professional Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 reviews live yet, which normally happens when a studio does not grant early access to the game. In the case of THPS 5, this may be due to a massive day one update that arrived with the game.

User Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 reviews are mixed on Metacritic with users complaining about outdated graphics, while others fondly remember playing older Tony Hawk Pro Skater games and find that same fun here.

On reddit, Brian Mundt shares his Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 review and the gameplay video above. Check out the overall review on Reddit.

“First of all, the second-to-second gameplay feels “off.” It’s a difficult sensation to explain, but the crispness of the previous entries seems absent. I believe it has to do with the physics, but it’s too early to say.

The structure of the game is borderline bizarre. Players are dropped into a “free-skate” arena, which is littered with waypoints. Skating up to one of these waypoints will give you the option to engage in any one of the course’s “missions.” What’s strange is that when you select a mission, you’re taken out of the free skate session, and plopped into a new “instance” by yourself. Once you’re done with the mission, you’re ripped back out and plopped into the free-skate session again. You’ve got to do this for “missions” like high score challenges, which could be accomplished in normal sessions in prior games”
