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.
