LinkinPrime edit:

We knew it was coming this month, but the Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground demo that we all want to play is coming out today, as in Monday 10th September.
It actually couldn’t come on a worse day, as it’s the same day that Microsoft are working on Xbox Live, so our downloads may get interrupted depending on what time the content goes up.

Hmm, I guess this might be good. I have really stopped paying attention to TH games now, they just seem dated, and just don't interest me anymore. What ever happened to that VP Party Animals demo? I know it isn't the same developer or publisher, but I really wish it would come....

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

I can't even play THPS anymore. I picked up Underground a few days about and I kept pressing A instead of holding it. Felt so weird. THen the revert + manual was hard because I had been playing P8 too much.

I still enjoy the series. It's not realistic by any means but the difficulty can get out of hand after the first casual play-through. And I enjoy the challenge.

skate. was radically different. While cool in it's own right, I think I prefer the THPS arcade feel.

Yah theres no demo up yet. Being the THPS fanboy that I am I will pick this up eventually, but probably not until next summer.
I decided against buying some things I bidded on a lowball auction. Didn't know it'd be a big problem. Sue me.

I'm unimpressed with skate, it's missing way to much in terms of actual moves, and gameplay features. That said, Tony Hawk's Proving Ground looks to be even worse, it litterally seems like Project 8 1/2. Horrible showing be Neversoft IMO. They need to realize you can't make a game realistic, and cartoonish at the same time it doesn't work. Also, it seems all the annoying, make no sense, repetitive goals will still be there, and with way too much focus on boring features like nail the trick, nail the flip, nail the grab, be hardcore, be a rigger.... yawn. Also, the game is ugly, does every level have to be void of color to make the game feel "mature?"

I'm always going to be a huge fan of the Tony Hawk series, 1, 2, 4, THUG, and American Wasteland are some of my favorite games. Project 8 was total garbage, and Proving Ground looks to be even worse. So for now Skate is the only option if you want a fresh skating game. I'll wait until it hits $30, or Skate 2 comes out with more features. As for Tony Hawk games... they seriously need to start over from the ground up. Build better levels, make the game look and play good. Cut out the annoying goals, get a good storyline in there, have a decent Create-A-Skater, and decided whether they want to make an arcade game, an adventure game, or a sim skateboard game and then focus on getting that down right.

Proving Ground might have just killed the Tony Hawk series for me personally. It felt like I was playing Project 8, but worse. I kept looking at it and going, "damn, this game looks really bland". In usual Tony Hawk fashion, I can string together a 100,000 point combo without trying. I'm definitely passing on this one.

The offset camera was driving me nuts as well.

You could change it to "classic" in the options menu, even in default settings it was still a better camera than Skate.

The Tony Hawk games got better with every game through Underground, but every game after that has sucked, it looks like Proving Ground will suck as well.

Digital distribution is the death of preservation of the arts.

Hmm, I did not know that. I'll have to try it out.

Im wayyyyy too good at Tony Hawk to pass it up. I won the local competition here for THPS4 when I was like 10. But i will pass it until it reaches max 40 bucks. Thats how dissapointing it is...

WOW, that was bad. I played the demo tried to do the career and just had to stop. Really canned animations, i feel like its thps2 ported like the skaters don't really land then glide down.

Sorry Tony, you started us out but looks like the flame is being passed.

Yeah the camera thing I noticed in the menus and changed. Although now it looked farther away from the skater than previous TH titles. My major complaint is that grinding rails looks ultra unrealistic now because it's extra clingy. I have Project 8 and it is definitely not like this in 8.

Personally though, my favorite Tony Hawk ever is THUG1. Simply the best (controls, physics, storyline, fun).

Agreed. This one was weird, I hate the balance meter and it lacks color.

What happened to this once iconic game series? I'm not sure if this will be even worth a rental.

Anyone buy this? I feel like the camera is too close if they makes sense

I wish they could pull it back like a foot or so

Achievements seem pretty hard, but not really liking it

:(

It didnt get the best reviews, like 6.5/10. Im reading that the rigger editing tool is totally broken, and thats like 1/3 of the game. Its also supposedly full of glitches and a few missions are almost uncompletable. All things that are really inexcusable for a franchise thats been around for soo long.

Ive said this before, I'll say it again, the Tony Hawk people need to stop pushing out a new game every 10 months and take some time to really reinvent and reinvigorate the series.
