Episode 11 : Tony Hawk's Pro Skater

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater blew everyone away in 1999 with its take on skating - the environments seemed crisp, the physics were unreal and it had a wonderful trick system tying it all together. But just how good is this dinosaur of extreme sports if we play it today? Join Patrick as he soliloquises on whether Tony Hawk's has stood the test of time!

On this Episode, Patrick asks:

  • Does the variety-centric trick combo system work to induce actual gameplay variety, or is it all surface level?

  • Just how bad is the editing, and how badly do you want James back to fix it all for the next episode!

Join me, listen in and find out!
