    I am going to purchase this immediately. I loved pro skater 2 and then when I played THUG I loved that one too

    I gotta say, I loved the early Tony Hawk games, but Skate is just way more fun for me, I have countless hours on 2 and 3. I can probably roll through the city doing flip tricks and grinds and stuff forever, and thats not even getting into the crazy stunts like a hippie grind (They Exist!) That I would spend hours trying to get the replay of, and its all because of the physics and control scheme.... best sports game ever, we need a skate 4.

    You're right. Tony Hawk is the only game series I can actually make myself 100% accurate in. No other game has separate pieces of facial hair that match mine perfectly.

    Pro Skater 4 was probably my favorite in the series, followed by Pro Skater 1. Can't wait until Tony Hawk HD! The new songs in the soundtrack sound great!

    I LOVED the original three games. And I HATE skateboarding and people who skateboard. What the fuck is wrong with me?

    The best one ever in my opinion was Tony Hawks Pro skater 2. Me and all of my middle school friends played it to DEATH!!! Remember finding all the hidden tapes or the words skate on every level?

    I usually play EA skate, But I can't wait for this HD remake. Always love Skateboarding.

    Now I want to play as Harvey Birdman in a Skating game. Infact, I want to play as Harvey Birdman in every game ever.

    Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 and the shark in the San Francisco level ! Was amazing when I was younger. God, I want to play this again now!

    I loved Tony Hawk Underground, the levels are some of the greatest and the mission structure worked with the story line. The soundtrack had the best tracks and the difficulty levels made it either a breeze or a nightmare. Oh and how can I forget the Kiss concert or skating as Iron Man before Robert Downey Jr

    Yeah I miss the craziness of THPS (1 through 4). Don't get me wrong, I like Skate as well, but it's not nearly as addictive as THPS games were.
  • PhantasyPopStar - July 16, 2012 3:55 a.m.

    pro skater 8 was actually quite good
  • KidKatana - July 16, 2012 3:30 a.m.

    Not sure if this is too obviously integral to THPS to warrant a mention, but it seems remiss of you to have missed out the AMAZING level design. The fact that this game is only using levels from 1, 2 and 3 is pretty much an admission from Activision that everything after those ones sucked - seriously, the levels in 4 were ridiculous, there was no flow to them at all, but 1, 2 and 3 barely had a duff level between them. Oh, and Bam Margera can go get his face stoved in with a fucking sledgehammer. It was a miracle that THPS3 survived him.
  • Net_Bastard - July 16, 2012 2:29 p.m.

    There was no flow to the levels in Pro Skater 4? Have you even PLAYED Alcatraz? It's my favorite level in the entire series, and it had so many amazing lines in it!
  • KidKatana - July 17, 2012 1:27 a.m.

    Oh yeh fair enough, forgot about that one, there was that epic challenge of tricking from the top to the bottom wasn't there? I was mostly thinking of the zoo, which to me is a prime example of how gimmicks became more important than good lines in the level design. However that's probably best demonstrated by the London level - it has all the silly cliches like the bobbies, black cabs and red buses. It's also completely inaccurate geographically, which I wouldn't mind if it made the level flow better...but it doesn't. In fact it would have been way better if they'd just recreated the South Bank.

    the two-minute run is brilliant. the right amount of time-based tension, balanced with a ridiculous helping of gaming crack. i don't know when or where the phrase "just one more" had its genesis, but nothing i've ever played (to this day!) embodies it like the old thps. and "horse" was always my favorite. oh sorry, i mean "asshat".
  • taokaka - July 16, 2012 2:31 a.m.

    Graffiti mode was the absolute best, unfortunately I was the only one of my regular tony hawk playing buddies to realize this and as a result most of the time we played boring trick attack.
  • chrisat928 - July 16, 2012 2:03 a.m.

    What the fuck has happened to Gamesradar?
  • taokaka - July 16, 2012 2:34 a.m.

    I know right, any quality journalistic sight would have mentioned superman by goldfinger if they were talking about tony hawk's music.
