Tony Hawk: Ride with SkateBoard
Fun for the whole family---Don't over think this.
Let me first say, we are not hard core gamers. We enjoy pick up and play games that bring the family together for a night of fun. This is just such a game. My sons had friends over tonight for the neighborhood sleepover and we registered 4 hours so far playing this game. Although there is a bit of a learning curve, we were all smiling within 10 minutes as it only took a couple practice runs and we figured out the basics. We chose to keep the setting on casual, which was plenty challenging since we spent more time figuring out how to keep our balance than how to pull off crazy complicated tricks. We tried out career and party mode and enjoyed them both. Taking turns riding the board was a blast. If we weren't riding laughing at ourselves, we were laughing at the guy riding. Don't get me wrong...there was some serious competition between dad and the boys, but that's what makes a game great. If it provides those moments, then it succeeds. If you can enjoy this game for the unique interactive controller and tons of smiles it provides a family while playing, then I highly recommend the title. If you are hoping for a hard core TH game, find a different title. We will be playing this for months to come and will definitely pick up SHRED so we can get our boarding on as well.
this game makes me cry
this is the worst tony hawk game of all time. this makes you say. is this a tony hawk game. for an example when you jump it jumps ten seconds later. the graphics suck. the whole game sucks don't get this please. get tony hawk proving ground instead. if you like tony hawk games.
Worst Game Ever Im Glad Im selling this!
This game was really stupid, I was hoping that you could be more energenic in this game but yet you can take your hand and move the board to earn points which is really stupid. The Graphics and sounds were good but the gameplay was horrible!! Don't get this game unless you want to sell it for some of your money back because sure this game is good for the little ones, like my cousin who loves this game with his bro, but it SUCKS for people who want more action in it like me. So Don't get this game if you don't like it or if doesn't look good, and hopefully though, Im not getting this one though, the sequel will be somewhat better.
best game ever
omg the game is so good everyone should play :) buy it
THE LEAST RESPONSIVE GAME EVER!
I will start by telling you... DONT BUY THIS GAME! The board is so unresponsive, that I just gave up and threw it at the wall until it broke in half. Graphics are okay, but skate 3 is better. Even skate 1 is better! If you want a good skating game, buy Skate. Not to be a fan boy or anything but it's a lot better than this. Dont listen to anyone that says this game is good. I heard that the next tony hawk is coming with the same board. But I gave up with Tony Hawk. And you should too. And please dont waste your hard earned money on this. For the price it is, it's pretty much a rip off. It should be free, wait no. It should be free so everyone could get it and throw it in the fire and stomp on its ashes. This game should be added to the top five list of dissapointing games. Just sad..........
Ok first off this is by far the absolute Tony Hawk I've played since the franchise been out for game play. I know that this is only my OPINION, but I don't think this game is worth the steep price tag. The new controller-less concept is sweet, but it has it flaws and I'm sure others can agree with this. The soundtrack is ok and the graphics are pretty good, but I think Skate still has this Tony Hawk beat with the graphics. The last thing I'd like to address is that the learning curve is either hit or miss and that's coming from someone who's played and owned every single Tony Hawk game. I hope this review will help with your decision on whether or not it's worth your time and money. I'm not trying to bash or make anyone think that it's totally worthless cause I'm a huge supporter with this franchise, I'm just simply saying that it has many flaws that needs to be fixed before I can dethrown Skate.
Not Worth It
ok so once again gamestop gives your horrible reviews to the real thing. Ok so heres the deal the controller barely works and is very unresponsive. The gameplay is even worse when you cant even control what you are doing. If you dont believe me please check any game website that rates video games not only is this game a complete waste of your money but the board is only a waste of money. The board is only good for this game and is very durable the only problem is that the sensors on the board barely work and is very unresponsive. Now the game is very simplistic almost a copy of what every tony hawk pro skater game has done already so your simply rebuying. Theres no online play and no multiplayer so this is only good for the singleplayer mode. final words not worth it save your money
Can't say much
I sort of enjoyed playing this game, mainly because it was another skateboarding game. When I picked it up I found that the only real fun thing about this game is watching people hurt themselves trying to ollie with the board that comes with the game. This game would be fun playing with a controller, but otherwise the company needs to have designed the board in a better way. My siblings enjoyed this game, but I, being far much older mainly liking COD type games, just didn't find it too interesting. The graphics were pretty good, not as good as GOW2, but still pretty decent. I just can't stand the controls. They make it virtually impossible to do any trick without slipping. I know this is because its mean't to "imitate" a real skateboard, but I doubt real skateboards perform well on carpet or hard wood floor.
It's an okay game
This Tony Hawk Ride game has really shown realism of skateboarding and I think with the board it self is pretty convenient. But I would say that the board need a better of communicating with my Xbox 360 becuase Im trying really hard doin the Tilt and Flip tricks and it's pretty challenging task to pass. But it also takes a bit too long just to unlock one place I'm guessing. All of the difficulties I'm having with the board is really making this game challening than just using an ordinary Xbox 360 controller that I would use for other games that doesn't need a speacial controller in able to take action of playing that specific game. Even with the board, I don't know why it takes time to turn left or right (which you have to lean in to the turn). All the tricks seem to me that I'm not trying a new trick. But it's an okay game if anyone who skateboards, go purchase this game if you feel like showing off your tricks to your friends. It's worth the money.
Best Tony Hawk Game
I have played all the tony hawk games and really enjoy this one the most. I think it is mainly the new board controller i enjoy the most. I disagree with all the reviews from the reviewers such as G4, IGN, and Youtube reviews. The gameplay is good and i find the control of the board to actually be responsive. There arent as any unrealistic tricks like there were in the previous games it feels more like the fisrt tony hawk made which was a classic. The soundtrack is good but isnt as wide of a variety of others but the interaction is what makes the game. I was kind of iffy on buying this game because of all the bad reviews but i found that the reviewers were wrong on what i would enjoy.There is character customization but no skate park creation. If you enjoy the tony hawk series this is a must buy. Too many people overlook this game because bad reviews.
