Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5

XBox: The Official Magazine - - PREVIEW -

fter ill-fated ex­per­i­ments Ride and Shred, the Tony Hawk se­ries is re­turn­ing to its roots. Pro Skater 5 is in­tended to look and feel like the fondly re­mem­bered early games, only with a few con­tem­po­rary twists. The Xbox One ver­sion will sup­port up to 20 play­ers online and share­able skate parks of your own mak­ing. These are good ideas; we’re rather less con­vinced by the in­clu­sion of power-ups and the abil­ity to shoot pro­jec­tiles.

Per­haps stung by (un­der­stand­able) crit­i­cisms of its graph­ics, Ac­tivi­sion de­cided to re­veal a new art style less than two months ahead of launch – which hardly inspires con­fi­dence. Wikipedia cur­rently has a ‘se­ries de­cline’ sec­tion cov­er­ing Robo­modo’s three en­tries to date; will this be four flops in a row?
