We’re of the firm opinion that your time is too precious, too valuable to be spent reading a full review for a game that was already reviewed many, many years ago. What’s the point of applying a score to a game that’s old enough to be enrolled in the sixth grade? That’s why we invented Deja Review: A quick look at the new features and relative agelessness of remade, revived and re-released games.
If you played the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, you probably remember exactly when you got your first million points on Warehouse. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD allows us all to relive that memory while simultaneously bringing the games that started it all to a new audience. Thanks to developer Robomodo’s careful recreation of seven select levels from the first two Pro Skater games, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD evokes a strong sense of nostalgia.
It plays just like you remember; that secret spot where you pushed your score (and your board) skyward is there, waiting for you to discover it all over again.
