I really didn’t want to play this game. It’s a childhood killer. It’s like the Phantom Menace of skateboarding
games. Tony Hawk 2 is one of my favorite games of
all time. As much as I enjoyed the later entries in
the series, I think the second one is just unbeatable. It’s perfect. As the series continued, they kept adding
new features like reverts, getting off your board, and pressure flips. Those things helped keep the games fresh,
but I don’t think they actually improved the formula. And it seems like Neversoft was always trying
to recapture that magic. They introduced classic mode in later games,
trying to match the feel of the originals, and they remade some of the classic levels
as unlockables. There’s even a remake of the first two games
for the Xbox, called Tony Hawk 2X. And now, in the most recent attempt to relive
the original games, we have Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. They promised an HD upgrade to the classic
games. What they delivered is just like Pro Skater
1 and 2, except that they removed a bunch of stuff. While those two games have a combined 19 levels,
this HD edition only has 7. Tony Hawk 2X, on the other hand, ADDS exclusive
levels – boosting the total up to 24. Remember how Neversoft remade some of the
original levels? Apparently this game was built using their
Underground 2 source code. All 7 levels that appear in this game were
stolen from Underground 1 and 2, and American Wasteland. Robomodo made no effort to actually MAKE anything. Despite the promises that this game is exactly
like the originals, they started off by using the PS2 era versions of the levels, not the
originals themselves. We’re already off to a terrible start. I think their selection could have been better
too. My least favorite Tony Hawk levels are the
linear ones like the Mall and Downhill Jam. If you missed something in your run, you can’t
just take a shortcut around to the other side of the level, you have to go all the way to
the end and teleport to the beginning, but then you’re out of time. You can try to skate uphill too, but that’s
really slow. Why not use Philadelphia? It was remade for Underground 2. They could have stolen the assets just as
easily. But they chose not to. So, this is an HD upgrade. How are the graphics? In screenshots, I’d say the game mostly looks
fine. Obviously it’s a big improvement over the
PS1, with blocky textures and low poly models. This version has debris floating around, puddles,
cracks, graffiti, rust, and all that good stuff. They must have put all their resources into
the graphics, because everything else sucks, like the UI. They added completion bars and counters to
the screen that keep track of how much stuff you’ve collected, and that’s really cool. But you can’t see what challenges are still
left on the pause screen. In the Mall, you have to do a special trick
down the 16 as one of the goals. If you don’t know your special tricks yet,
you actually have to back out of the game entirely and go to the character selection
screen to look at them. One step forward, two steps back. And while you’re there in the skateshop, you
can check out all the new deck graphics, but you can’t adjust your truck tightness anymore. Why not? You know something great about the original
Pro Skater 2? The engine. You’re never about to finish a combo when
you fall through the level. Or trying to wallride when it doesn’t register. You can trust that, if something goes wrong,
it was your fault. Or the stupid taxi driver’s fault. You mother–! You are pissing me off! Tony Hawk 2X did the right thing and reused
that engine for their remake. What better way to play the early games than
with the early engine? The speed and hang time are balanced perfectly,
so the challenge of clearing a gap or reaching a hidden area is exactly the same. Tony Hawk HD, on the other hand, started with
the PS2 engine, then ruined it. Wall rides don’t work. You glitch into rails. You constantly break things. It feels like an early beta version. It’s embarrassing. And it’s never been patched. Why didn’t they test this game? 12 years passed between versions of this game. Did it really get HARDER to code this stuff? In the first two games, doing a 900 was pretty
tough. Take Tony Hawk, with his base stats, and do
a 900 in the first level. It has to be in normal stance, and you have
to be going as fast as you can. You’ll still barely pull it off. In HD, I was messing around in the first stage,
and I did one switch with plenty of airtime to spare. I’m not upset that they changed the physics. But the problem is that they didn’t change
anything else. The levels are designed for a certain level
of height on your tricks. This version messed with it. You’ll find that you jump over stuff you need
to collect, and gaps that used to be hard are really easy now. That’s just the physics – the engine has
more problems than that. Originally, I played this game on a laptop. It’s a powerful machine, with an i7 and a
discrete graphics card. When I first fired up the game, it would play
fine, but after a while, it would get slower and slower until it eventually became unplayable. It’s horribly optimized. And there’s no way to turn down graphics quality
or change the resolution. It’s locked at 720p unless you edit the source
files. Another great thing in the classic games is
the animation. To this day, I think the 360 flip in Pro Skater
2 is the best looking one in a video game. Just look at it. It’s incredibly satisfying. The later games messed with it a little bit. The Pro Skater 3 one looks weird, and all
the later games had the double tap control, where the trick would start as a varial flip,
then convert into a tre in the air, accompanied by a sound effect. That version never really felt as good. The bail animations were great too. You could really feel the impact, and you
could mash buttons to get him to get up faster, which made it more exciting. What HD should have done is started with the
same animation, and fixed a few small issues – like the missing nollie inward heelflip
animation and the off-axis varial flip that wobbles if you spin. Aside from that, the rest should have stayed
the same. The amount of time each trick takes is important,
down to the exact frame count. If you played these games back in the day,
you’ll find that some of the stuff you used to do will work differently because the animation
lengths aren’t the same. Look at the new judo and airwalk animations. Just horrific. The nollie flip underflip is completely wrong. The name describes exactly what the trick
is. It’s a full flip, then another flip. But look at the new version. It’s a weird half kickback. Why change it? The trick hasn’t changed. Mullen’s original footage still exists for
reference. Nollie impossibles wrap wrong too. Nothing looks good. Look at how you clip through the coping when
you land in grinds. And look at these hardflips! I did a whole video about the hardflips in
the Tony Hawk series. But they’re leaps and bounds beyond this. Let’s look at a backside heelflip side by
side with the original. Honestly, which one looks better? I’d take the original any day. But that’s not all. There’s also the weird wobble when you land. Your character isn’t turning, it’s just an
animation of the board moving around. It looks ridiculous. They also added ragdoll physics for the bails. Now, instead of falling naturally and getting
back up, your skater will die in mid air and flop around lifelessly in rigor mortis, then
the screen flashes white and you’re back up again. What was the point of that? Not only does it look worse, but it takes
out the excitement of trying to get up as quickly as possible before time runs out. It also respawns you in really inconvenient
places. If they were trying to impress us with the
ragdoll stuff, they’re about 10 years too late. The playable skaters were also great in Pro
Skater 2 More than just having a variety of different
skins to play as, the skaters were actually different. They had their own tricks, a couple outfits,
and most importantly, they had an unlockable video at the end of career mode. Rodney Mullen’s video is what got me into
skateboarding single-handedly. I’m sure tons of skaters can say the same
about one of those videos. HD, again, blows it. The roster is different. Some of the more relevant skaters are still
there, like Koston, Reynolds, Mullen– –Wait. Rodney Mullen is goofy now? That’s not right. Anyway, Hawk himself is included, and they
also added some more current skaters, like Chris Cole, Nyjah Huston, and… Lyn-z Adams Hawkins Pastrana? I guess that’s cool. I wouldn’t want to see the same old videos
again, and a lot of the original guys don’t have much new footage anyway. But here’s the thing. There are no unlockable videos. Yeah, you can look up these skaters on YouTube,
but where’s the fun in actually completing the game? What’s the point in playing through multiple
times? There’s nothing. The rest of the unlockables in Pro Skater
2 were awesome too. In addition to extra levels, like Skater’s
Heaven and the Chopper Drop, the cheat codes were my favorite. After beating everyone’s career 100%, I would
often turn on sim mode, and try to do realistic tricks and combos. There’s also fun stuff like moon physics. And if you ever got bored of that, you could
create a skater or even your own park. You could make yourself, make your local park,
turn on sim mode and skate it. You could save parks to memory cards and share
them too. It was a lot of fun. And while you’re sharing the levels with a
friend, you can also play one of the countless multiplayer modes with split screen. HD, like you’d expect, has none of that. At all. I guess making those features would have been
too much work. Even though they probably could have stolen
it from Underground like everything else. But, hey, there is one new, exciting feature
that’s exclusive to HD. It’s called “Big Head Survival!” In it, you skate around and try to get points
before your head gets too big and explodes. It’s… it’s okay. The tragic flaw is that it’s insanely easy. I beat every level first try. I wouldn’t mind it as a new bonus mode, but
the fact that they spent time on this instead of one of the countless features they cut
is inexcusable. Complete the mode and you unlock the big head
cheat. Another new mode is called Hawkman. You have to collect these pellets, as the
game calls them, while doing a specific type of trick – grind, wallride, manual or air. Each level has a correct route you can take
to get them all in the time limit. But the difficulty is pretty uneven. School 2 is a huge challenge. The next new thing is the Projectives. In an effort to breathe some new life into
the old levels, Projectives are a list of new challenges that you complete after you
beat the levels normally. It’s not a bad idea… but unfortunately they
went about it in a really lazy way. Each stage has COMBO letters, a high score,
and a combo score. Typically, you can do these all in a single
run. You also have to collect 8 skateboards and
boneless the magic bum 3 times. You have a minute. And you’ll need it, because the bonelesses
don’t count most of the time. Being only a minute changes the feel. Instead of searching for stuff, it’s more
about planning the perfect run where you have time to do it all. It’s kind of cool. Except that they do the exact same thing in
every level. And they didn’t really do a great job. The COMBO letters are often really awkward
and difficult to reach. True, the levels weren’t designed with this
in mind, but they could have done better than this. The game is also riddled with other errors
and issues. The game won’t save unless you run it as an
administrator. You can’t skip music tracks. Car plants don’t seem to work. You can’t level out. Sometimes you manual without manualling. In Big Head mode, your shadow gets cropped. It’s a mess. So what should you do if you want some more
Tony Hawk in your life? It Depends which ones were your favorite. If you love the PS1 classics, you can play
them on PS1 or Dreamcast, or even your phone. The PC version is also a great choice. It combines both of the games in one, and
assuming you can get it to work with any compatibility issues, you could try that. Tony Hawk 2X is another excellent version
if you still have a Xbox or a 360. If you love the PS2 era games, check out THUG
Pro. I have a review of that right here. It’s basically a PC mashup of all the games
in one spot. It’s awesome. Tony Hawk HD has no merit. It doesn’t do anything noteworthy that the
originals don’t do better, and it doesn’t reach anybody who doesn’t have access to a
better version. Whose fault is it that this game is so bad? Did the developers just blow it? Honestly, I think they’re capable , but they
just ran out of budget. Everything feels rushed. Given a few more months or a year, this game
could have been the definitive version of Tony Hawk. But now we’ll never get that. Nobody will want to touch a remake after seeing
how this one tanked. Maybe the fan scene will step up and fill
that gap. Until then, we’ve still got our PS1s. What was your first experience with the Tony
Hawk series? Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments. Also in the comments, post any questions about

    definitely agree with you, tony hawks 2 was by far the best of all of them, captured realistic skating perfectly, nice to control, not too over the top, like the later versions were. played it for years on my old pc using wasd… was so addictive. never found that with the later versions.

    I love how spot on this video is. It's hard to explain this to anybody who wasn't die hard into the series. When you first play HD you just totally feel like nothing's the same. The game just got cheaper. Honestly what would have been just fine, and even preferred, is to take the EXACT same game and just have it in HD. Just make it look nice and keep the feel.

I agree with all the flaws you call out for the HD version, I feel like I forced myself to enjoy it mainly for the solely-missed THPS dose. Damn shame how lacking HD really was.

    When I played this game, I didn't know what to expect (since I had never heard of it at the time). Obviously, I never thought it could hold a candle to the originals, and to be honest, I didn't even think it was that bad of a game. It has its issues, but I never actually ran into most of the glitches in this video. I never imagined people thought this was the worst Tony Hawk game of all time (well, at least until Pro Skater NOT 5 came out). Looks like I'll have to change my opinion.

    My first experience was watching that amazing trailer, and seeing the gameplay, then after begging my dad to finally order Pizza Hut so I could get my hands on the demo. It instantly became one of my favorite things to play and I remember getting the game for Christmas and being extremely excited. I played it exclusively for months and months. I remember being slightly disappointed by 2 to be perfectly honest. The cash system added another level of unnecessary complication to the fun arcade gameplay of the original. Why does Tony Hawk need to pick up cash to buy a go faster upgrade? All in all I stayed with the series until Underground, because it was by far the most entertaining game in the series and remains my favorite to this day. Of the classic trilogy 3 is my favorite easily. It took everything that the first two games did, removed cash, and added supremely fun online multiplayer.

    Correct, THPS2 is by far the best one. The levels, besides New York were perfect, in my opinion, Philly was the best, the soundtrack was great, the flip speed, looks of the tricks, video parts, ghetto bird, everything. This remake was decent, but never had the same feel. I played that 2x years ago, and it was OK, but a bit too extreme.
    Question, what is a double hardflip really???

    Well, they used the unreal engine 3 and fucked up the physics because in the PS2 era they were tight and solid, but the problem was using the PS2 versions of the levels?, I don't think so, even playing School 2 in underground didn't feel like something was off, for example, the gap where you get the tape, in pro skater was possible, same in Underground 1, not easier or harder, but in HD is harder because you don't move as fast as in the older games, and don't forget the big drop feature, that feature alone destroys Downhill Jam.

    Why do I feel like I played that “big head survival” mode in thps3. Am I losing it?

    Perhaps it wasn't the devs but the publishers wanting to just cash in on the thps name. That's most likely the case when games come out unfinished. Although yeah, looks like they spent most the time on updating the graphics.

    man it really sucks that this game is bad I played HD a LOT as a kid and loved it. I have a ton of nostalgia surrounding this game.

    Edit: honestly I Still like the game. sure it's definitely flawed but I still enjoy it and I still think it's a decent game

    The irony is that Robomoto said that it was the first time you can play a tony hawk game on PC… That's not true, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 had a pc port

    So…in other words…just rebuy Pro Skater 1 & 2 on Amazon as long as you have a ps1 and 2 still (and maybe ps3 works? Don’t know)

    Would you consider doing a video on the history of skateboarding in parallel with longboarding? I've seen and read countless retellings of how skateboarding started in the 60s and evolved over the decades, but I never hear about how longboarding branched off. A lot of disciplines that used to fall under skateboarding, like slalom, downhill, and freestyle, are only known as longboarding now, while skateboarding is just associated with popsicle decks, but how did that come about? Given the amount of research you've put into your other videos, I think you'd do a great job

    I thought this would be a nostalgic remake of all the best about THPS. That they finally gave up on trying to reinvent the game and failing constantly, and just make a solid, nostalgic THPS game, with everything best about the franchise, finally giving the old school fans what they want, as kind of respectful farewell, to remember the good times….

    but NO, YOU FUCKED UP!! Slapped the fans in the face and shat yourself in public AGAIN

    You must be playing the DVD of the original release, I have the Steam version that got a "revert pack" update and many of these problems have been fixed. There's still some weird animations, but I don't recall falling through the level or grinding in the middle of objects and a lot of those issues. Overall, it plays pretty well now. It's not quite as refined as the originals, but it's pretty good and the updated graphics do look nice. It also appears to be better optimized as I was able to play it at 720p on a 2009 Macbook Pro running Windows 10 in Bootcamp with a core2duo and a 9600m GT graphics card and you can now run it at 1080p and I think even higher as they added resolution selection to the menu.

    If you can find a Steam key for it from a key reseller like Kinguin.net I would definitely get the Steam version with the revert DLC. The Dreamcast version in an emulator is probably better on a technical level, but it's still fun as it is and it's fun to see it with modernized graphics that still hold up pretty well.

    Personally for me the original thps is my all time favorite, with thps hd being my absolute least favorite. Just the incredibly loose fizics and random glitches. By the way, anyone else encounter that partickularly annoying one where you fall, you keep respawning and falling and have to restart your run?

    12:37 – My first experience with Tony Hawk was the first game on Nintendo 64 at a friend's house but the first Tony Hawk game I owned was Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 on Game Boy Color. However, my first owned Tony Hawk game on a console was Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 on PlayStation 2 and that game was very revolutionary to me and it still holds up as my second favorite Tony Hawk game with Tony Hawk's Underground being my #1. THPS4 got me into skateboarding for like a year.

    Actually in 2007 Rodney Mullen had to turn switch because he damaged his hip joint skating regular
