This is an oddly nostalgic experience, considering I never played these games. The only Tony Hawk games I really played were 3 and THUG 2. 

Well the game plays like THPS 3 & 4 and the THUG series was pretty much THPS 4 but with a story mode. So it's like your playing THPS 3 but with new levels :p

Interesting decisions they made for this game. They included a tutorial that seems rather insulting. It's like made for someone who's never played a video game in their life. Personally I feel like THPS is one of the most intuitive games you can pick up and know what to do right away but I guess some people need help skating in a straight line! :p

 

Also strange they have the old (current age) character models instead of their young selves.

 

And seems like they combined both of the schools.

Just found that the a nationwide, second hand store (CEX) had this in for £5 less than RRP. After trading in Eternal Darkness and Killer 7 I also happened to have a £33 voucher, so just bought this for a massive £3.95. Hopefully it'll be here soon and can be the perfect way of spending 20-30 minutes after a busy day, in-between baby sleeps.

My copy arrived, played for about 10 minutes and I am not as good at THPS as I was in about...2005 (when I was a God at 3 and could clear the main story in about 25 minutes). It looks and plays really well however and I'll definitely be putting some time into it...when I can. Although my wife is currently in hospital and my employer has arranged for me to not be in today and tomorrow...so if I get all my work done and I have time to kill.

Hope your wife is doing OK.

With just Red Dead Redemption 2 in my current log, I figured I could play a second game while I wait on Halo 3: ODST and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and so I broke down and bought this game due to the music and nostalgia. It's . . . a great game. I love it. I truly suck at it worse than I remember, but I stopped playing at THPS3 so with the added THPS 3+4 controls with manuals and reverts have really changed the game. I know they can be turned off but I may as well learn. Man, takes me back, the music, the levels, the objectives. But it's all really well done and updated. Bravo dev team. Such an easy, not stressful, pick up and play game. I have no compulsion to 100% it like most games, I'm treating it like an arcade game I hop into when I have a minute or two here or there to spare and play and it seems it's a great way to feast on THPS.

I got stuck on a couple of the challenges in Downtown. No matter what I did, I couldn't get make the rooftop jumps. Then I remembered that stat points exist. :lol:

 

And this is definitely a game where I plan to just play a few rounds before moving onto something else, then suddenly it's been 2 hours.

I was stuck as well as I didn't want to continue with out completing all the goals in each level but realized I will have to come back to them to get some of the hidden tapes as I don't have enough speed and air stats on my create a skater.

What’s the general consensus on the levels in these games? I’ve made it through most of the levels at this point, and the ones in 2 feel generally lackluster compared to the first. 


2 was always my favorite 🤷🏼‍♀️
