'Could' is really the wrong word there, because I have done exactly that, and I will again. And again. Between the fantastic quality of this remake and the amazing critical and commercial reception it has received, if you don’t think the bigwigs at Activision are currently eyeing up THPS3 and 4 with dollar signs in their eyes, you’re crazier than whoever green-lit Tony Hawk: Ride.
I just feel happy playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. After feeling disappointed with the re-release of another childhood gem of mine, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles, I was worried this game was going to be another case of a poorly aged title that relied more on nostalgia than its actual quality. I’m so glad I was wrong. The game looks great, plays great, sounds great, and it’s adequately challenging. It just makes you smile from start to finish.
All in then, Vicarious Visions and Beenox have absolutely knocked this remake out of the park. Not only is it a great source of nostalgia for older players who have fond memories of the originals, but the core gameplay is just as fun as ever and will no doubt find a new legion of fans today. The updated visuals are excellent, again playing homage to past titles while adding extra little touches and details.
