'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD' (ALL) - New Screens

by Rainier on March 15, 2012 @ 7:25 p.m. PDT

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is a digital download title that takes the best elements of the classic THPS games and gives them a fresh update to create an all new skateboarding experience.

Tapping into fans’ muscle memories, the gameplay in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD returns to controllers and 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. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD features an eclectic group of today’s skateboarding pros, including Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins (Pastrana), Riley Hawk, and, of course, Tony Hawk himself.


Features

  • HD Upgrade: Game was rebuilt and polished by Robomodo using Neversoft’s original code.
  • Classic levels: The style and feel of the best 7 levels from THPS and THPS2 refreshed for today (Warehouse, School 2, Mall, Phoenix, Hangar, Marseilles and Venice.). Tony Hawk himself put a call out to his fans on Twitter during the summer of 2011 to decide the final levels.
  • 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.
  • Refined controls: The skaters’ animations, tricks and combos reflect the evolution of the THPS games. For example, you can do manuals in levels from the first THPS, a trick that didn’t enter the franchise until THPS2.
  • 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.
  • Details on soundtrack and online modes will be announced soon.
