You're likely seeing several Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 reviews right now, but I'm not quite ready to deliver my final verdict. Before publishing our scored review, I want to spend a bit more time in the shoes of the legendary skater in these remakes.
While I'm not ready to finalize my review just yet, I'm very much enjoying this stroll (skate?) down memory lane. The overhauled visuals look good in action, and the gameplay feels smooth and intuitive; it's just as easy to pick up and play today as it was in 1999. I was pleasantly surprised how several of the park designs from the first two Tony Hawk games still hold up to this day. I also like the online multiplayer suite, even if it's a bit bare-bones, and being able to play created parks from other players around the world is awesome.
