Tony Hawk 5 looks like the burned corpse of a three-legged sheep and plays like the results of teaching a chimpanzee how to code. At its very, very best, it’s an intensely mediocre experience, populated by repetitive, remedial missions and archaic stunt “action” that you could find in literally any other skateboarding game – all of which is buried behind loading screens, unintuitive menu design, and the curious decision to make players wait an arbitrary amount of time before they get to confirm or cancel any decision.
Even without its technical issues, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5, at its core, is a bad game. The graphics are two console generations old, it suffers bad level design, and missions are uninspiring throughout all stages. What makes this whole experience sting even more is the fact that this bad game has so many obvious issues, that even getting through it for the sake of a review was difficult.
With a résumé that now includes four terrible Tony Hawk's Pro Skater titles (Ride, Shred and Pro Skater HD being the other three), developer Robomodo should be banished from ever working on this series again, if Activision actually wants to bring THPS up to 2015's standards, instead of simply banking on people's nostalgia, while knowingly shipping a broken product that offers a minimal amount of content compared to other contemporary $60 videogames.
