    from the quicklook this doesn't look like a pile of garbage but it seems like it falls pretty short of the old THPS games
    The actual mechanics seem okay but everything else looks like a pile of garbage

    The forced multi-player elements, the level design, the visuals, the basic UI

    Just goddamn

    and they don't even do anything with the mechanics

    all the levels look dull and the missions are wholly uninteresting

    The old THPS games had really good level design. Compared to them these levels are very uninspired.

    These levels look like work-in-progress for real THPS levels.

    Like "we threw these together to get a rough estimate of lines and such and then we'll flesh it out closer to launch".

    I think this might have been a lot better with another half a year or year in the oven. It does come off as very half-baked for a $60 game.

    This game looks like a bad looking PS3 game.

    Goddammit

    Even with all my lowered expectations, this is...bad

    I was so worried for months that they wouldn't get the feel right

    The sad irony here is that they did, but everything else about it is so poor

    Mr. G is spot on. Instancing into goals is stupid, and even though you can start privately, after completing a goal or two, they throw your preference out the window and populate your game with other people

    Holding Square to bring up missions when you're near markers straight up doesn't work sometimes

    You have to back all the way out to the main menu to allocate skill points

    And after doing all the goals in the first level, only one of them (clearing the pool of beach balls) was any fun at all

    AND THEY TOOK OUT FLATLAND TRICKS WHAT THE FUCK

    Well at least the radio showed me I'll never forget the old games, apparently all I have to do to endlessly picture the original Tony Hawk games is hear this song

    Look I can't tell you if you want this game or not, but based on the Giant Bomb quick look it is not good. I can't claim to have more than a passing interest in the Tony Hawk games. I know I liked the games on the Playstation and PS2, and I owned the Gamecube version of... 3 I believe and enjoyed it. This game seems to poorly try to capture the feeling of them. The parks all seem lifeless and uninspired, the objectives variants on the same thing. No HORSE. I would not recommend spending $60 for this at all. It looks very bad.

    But yeah, just pick up THPS3 and you will be happy.

    Man, this is just a bummer.
    Like, this could have actually been something, right? It seems completely possible to make a new, good Tony Hawk game, but this just isn't it.
    Calling it THPS 5 and hyping it up so much as a return to form, and then half assing it so badly. Just... man...

    Watching the Quick Look made me realize that I actually don't think I want a new Tony Hawk that's like the old ones. I'd like a new new one, different from the old ones and different from Skate also, but 5 is zero percent what I want and might have been even if it were good.

    what's funny is, i think even from the Conan review, the game looked bad. Like Tony Hawk even kind of looked depressed at it

    It's a game mode in 3 and 4. One player has a limited amount of time to start a combo. Then the other player has to beat it. It goes back and forth until someone doesn't beat where the score is at, and then that person gets a letter. The score resets, etc, and you go until the loser spells Horse (or whatever word you change it to).

    Maybe I'm remembering it wrong, but when I think of Tony Hawk games (or really, just 3), I think of levels that were well detailed with a lot of variety in looks and layout, that seemed to mostly have had a lot of thought put into them.

    And in this quick look, all the levels look like bad player created levels with the main thing that separates them being the colour of the ground.

    And how does a game that looks this basic and drab have a bad frame rate?

    I was so ready for a good Tony Hawk too.

    yeah, specific levels like marseilles in thps 2 and or Los Angeles in thps 3 had really great flow.

    I never want to be this guy

    But I feel like this would've been the Tony Hawk game we were all hoping for if it didn't have multiplayer

    It feels like that has to be the reason everything but the core mechanics are ao half-baked

    Dude at GameStop gave me back the full $60 instead of the $30 in trade-in I expected to get

    Since it was unexpected cash I gave that guy an extra preorder for his numbers and pre-ordered The Nathan Drake Collection

    The end of what could have been a beautiful day

    I haven't had any major issues with the game and have enjoyed the little bit I have played of it (I am just messing around for half an hour and then exiting, really). I did fall through the floor once and clip through "the corner" ramp in the Berrics but other than that, not too bad.

    God it must have been a shitty day at Robomodo

    It really feels like they were Activisioned out of pulling it off this time

    Yeah like

    Through all of this, I still don't feel like Robomodo is a bad dev or anything

    They were shoehorned into three different projects, all of which seemed bound for disaster anyways

    And then when they finally get a chance to make their own mark, they get this obviously rushed thing that clearly had no funding put behind it
