Okay, so Tony Hawk: Ride didn't come out too great. But you can't go wrong when you revisit the original classic.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD will remind us why this franchise was so well-received, and why so many gamers gained hundreds of hours of enjoyment from these titles. It's a glossier, bigger version of the game that started it all.

And the best part is that it's arriving a little sooner than expected. When it was first unveiled, it received only the hazy estimate of a "summer 2012" release; now, the man himself has revealed at his Twitter page that Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD will hit next month. Remember, this will be an all-digital launch (PlayStation Store, Xbox Live Arcade), so don't go looking for the physical copy.

Redone levels, music from the first few games in the series, and skaters like Rodney Mullen, Andrew Reynolds, Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, and even Tony Hawk's son, Riley Hawk, have been confirmed. As for the price, we're anticipating a $14.99 tag, but it hasn't been announced yet.

hope they eventually remake THPS4 that was my first hawk game. and the franchise's finest moment to date imo. it was perfect.

I agree about THPS4. Open world format meeting Tony Hawk design was totally my thing for this franchise. I'd have a hard time going back to the time constrained and menu driven design from games prior.

exactly man like i said it was my first hawk game then after i decided to checkout the older games and i just couldn't deal with being on a 2 minute limit just seemed stupid really. thats why i won't be getting this. but 4 was just so fun with the open world. it was like GTA with skateboards and it was epic.

i'd say its in my top 10 all time i got so addicted

THPS 4 was one of my favourite PS2 games next to the MGS titles and Shadow of the Colossus.

It and SSX Tricky were THE games to play when friends came round. Then I got Guitar Hero II.

Looking back, the PS2 really was the greatest console!! It was definitely the most fun and had the most games. 🙂

As for Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD, D1P. No doubt about it! I still get a little giddy when I hear "Jerry was a racecar driver" by Primus, reminds me of San Francisco and downhill mall run every time!!

Definitely check out SSX Tricky. I dumped so many hours into that game–even yesterday I pulled it out again and enjoyed a few hours of it. It's just so much fun.

D1P. I've been looking forward to this return to glory for quite some time.

I traded my copy of THPS 4 on PS2 ages ago. I'm starting to really miss it.

Still have my PS1 copy of THPS 1 though!! 🙂

i wish more publishers would go back and transform ps1 titles into HD!
id do anything to be able to play crash 1,2,3,CTR and bash in glorious HD!

pandemonium would be nice too.
oh and a must the looney tunes games!
especially sheep raider, bugs and taz time busters and bugs and taz lost in time.
