Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 Remake: Skate on, my son!

Tony Hawk Pro Skater is back with a pretty awesome remake of the first two games with a lot of quality of life changes and additions from later games to further enhance these two for the PS4, XboX 1, and PC. We got multiplayer (currently limited to public only and no free skate. Private and free skate coming later), better character creation with female and male options (weirdly no sunglasses), a whole mess of challenges to do for created characters and stock characters to keep you busy, and a really fun and expansive map builder among many other things.

There is a lot to talk about from the addition to reverts to continue combos to not needing to do every single character's stuff to unlock the hidden levels. I'll post some videos giving some good breakdowns of what we got in this remake.

Some basic info:

You can access the tutorial under "Extras" on the main menu page and I highly recommend doing the tutorial to get an idea of how things roll.

These are two videos that help to show advanced tricks and combos:

Now a video from a YouTuber who has been extremely useful in completing goals for levels where I couldn't find all the items.

Keep in mind that the stat points in the levels can end up in different areas depending on who you choose to play and I believe depending on what skate style you pick for you create a character though for the skate style I'm not 100% on.

Lastly (for now) a video of a player scoring an 111mil point combo (my highest is 125k):

    I want to love this game and buy it, but I'm so scared. Heard it's great but still waiting on a sale.

    Question, how's the soundtrack compared to the originals?

    I mean it retails for 39.99, but I bought it day 1 at Walmart for 33 bucks which felt pretty good to me considering it's basically 2 games.

    Soundtrack seems solid. I haven't heard a lot of it yet, but I heard some old favorites as well as some new ones.

    I didn't realize it was only $40. Getting tempted now.

    Soundtrack is mostly same as in the originals.

    The game has that fun retro-arcade feel and looks pretty.

    The soundtrack is a huge part of the THPS nostalgia for me and I have been really enjoying it. They got the license for a bunch of new songs/artists and from what I have found there are only 3 songs missing from the original THPS 1+2 soundtrack.

    Committed by Unsane
    B Boy Document '99 by High and Mighty ft. Mos Def & Mad Skillz
    Out With the Old by Alley Life ft. Black Planet

    You can also customize the playlist so you can listen to just the songs you want and you can skip songs during a run, for the PS4 you press R3 to skip the song. Not sure what it is for PC and XboX One.

    Managed to finally get 100% on Tony Hawk 1 and 2. Getting that 250k score was a pain. Working on create a park now. Trying to make pizza hut.

    For some reason I thought there was a car prop but I'm not seeing one.

    How in the holy hell do so many people have the get 1 million points achievement. I can get maybe 300,000 if I’m really lucky

    That guy linking 300 moves is insane. Like I stuff up on single grabs. Also their ability to move at such hard angles between rails is nuts, I find it really difficult to come off a rail at any significant angle

    It depends, the player created skate parks can be used to get challenges/achievements so that can cause that achievement to inflate.

    I've also been watching YouTube videos for completion stuff and competitive matches and it is insane how easily these people get 1mil+ scores. I saw one where someone had generated 4mil+ points in a single combo in about 30 or 45 seconds.

    Damnit I just cannot jump in the volcano for the final alien plushie. I have the right stance, full special and coming off a perfect landing, dead on angle, and I’m just way short.

    Gah finally managed it after doing a boneless. Which I find so ducking hard to do

    Yea, I had a lot of trouble getting in there with the boneless. I'd either just jump straight up or not do a boneless towards the volcano.

    That volcano is evil. Easier to come around from the side with the bowl I found.

    Also I love this game? I finished all the goals in both 1 and 2. Working on the create a skater challenges. It feels so good to play. I need to get better at mixing in special and doing more tricks on verts. I can pretty easily swap through a ton of manuals, but one challenge is to do a 25 trick combo without grinding and that seems crazy

    Ended up getting the 25 trick combo on my first actual attempt - starting in a half-pipe, Boneless into 3 flip tricks, revert, manual to the other side, hit another two flip tricks, revert and manual, and you're already up to 10x. Then I pretty much mashed Square while maintaining balance.

    I only played THPS 2 and onward, so THPS 1 is completely new to me. These downhill levels like the mall are interesting.

    I vaguely remember having fun with the original THPS... 2, I think? So I'm curious about this, but also I'm a bit trepidatious about shelling out 45 euro for it! I guess I'll wait until some of my friends get it and I can give it a shot and see if I like it.

    I knew I was going to mess up something in the first post/title.

    I completely forgot about the downhill maps. Downhill Jam is my favorite, had a lot of fun on that one.

    Hey so this game rules and I have been playing the hell out of it

    I kind of wish the goals reset for each skater instead of just the skill points, but the speed run mode is cool. Finish every goal in a level as fast as possible is fun and challenging.

    I still gotta find all the aliens but it's been fun going for the veteran and legendary goals.

    Multiplayer lobbies are pretty cool too!

    There was a contest for player created boards. Digging the one by Error! Design.

    Looks like a patch for Tony Hawk came out and one of the big things is they added private matches and free skate to online play. Mods can also be used in private matches and player created maps can be used as well.

    Really glad they finally patched that in.
