'''Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD''', or '''THPSHD''', is an extreme sports video game developed by [[Robomodo]] and published by [[Activision]] in 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The developers promised to combine the best elements of original game, upgraded for today with sharp visuals and fresh content. Game was removed from Steam store on July 17th, 2017.

==Differences==
The game is developed by [[Robomodo]], and is being published by [[Activision]]. Game costs around €/$15, 1200-Microsoft points.

Since this is a remake of the original games, a lot of features from modern games were cut off. Even though the developers explained the lack of most features using the "classic feel" argument, there are obvious differences between the original games and the remake.

The most notable differences are:
Recently revert patch was officially released. It allows player to perform revert by default.
 
  +
*The game lacks [[Create-A-Skater|skater]] and [[Create-A-Park|park]] editors from [[THPS2]].
  +
*White screen instead of bail recovery animations.
  +
*The game doesn't support local splitscreen.
  +
*There are no skate videos in the game.
  +
*Manuals were not in the original [[THPS]].

*Reverts were not in both [[THPS]] and [[THPS2]].

*Rail balance bar only appeared in [[THPS3]].

The level list was a subject to discuss during the development. Since Tony Hawk asked fans about their favorite level on Twitter, tons of "Top 5 levels" articles spawned around the web. However, it's easy to spot that every level from the final level roster was already reused once: [[Venice]], [[Hangar]], [[School 2]] in [[THUG]], [[Warehouse]] (as Training), [[Downhill Jam]] and 3 DLC levels in [[THUG2]], [[Mall]] and [[Marseille]] in [[THAW]]. It is known that [[Robomodo]] used THUG2 source code, which might explain the level choice.

This title caused a huge resonance in the community. Franchise fans hoped that [[Robomodo]] will use this chance to develop a succesful title that will bring the franchise back on the track after two not very successful games. Game is mostly criticized for bad skater controls, poorly working game mechanics (like [[Wallride]]) and lots of [[glitches]]. Most of the noted glitches were tracked by players and reported on Robomodo facebook page, though they were ignored. One of notable examples was [[AndyTHPS]] proposing the way to fix wallride glitch. Players also did not like the lack of [[revert]] move and threw in lot of negative feedback about it, a likely reason why the DLC pack was released. This game currently holds a score of 67 on Metascore.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, or THPSHD, is an extreme sports video game developed by Robomodo and published by Activision in 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. The developers promised to combine the best elements of original game, upgraded for today with sharp visuals and fresh content. Game was removed from Steam store on July 17th, 2017.

Differences[edit | edit source]

Since this is a remake of the original games, a lot of features from modern games were cut off. Even though the developers explained the lack of most features using the "classic feel" argument, there are obvious differences between the original games and the remake.

The most notable differences are:

  • The game lacks skater and park editors from THPS2.
  • White screen instead of bail recovery animations.
  • The game doesn't support local splitscreen.
  • There are no skate videos in the game.
  • Manuals were not in the original THPS.
  • Reverts were not in both THPS and THPS2.
  • Rail balance bar only appeared in THPS3.
  • Players couldn't balance lip tricks in the original games.

Levels choice[edit | edit source]

The original tweet.

The level list was a subject to discuss during the development. Since Tony Hawk asked fans about their favorite level on Twitter, tons of "Top 5 levels" articles spawned around the web. However, it's easy to spot that every level from the final level roster was already reused once: Venice, Hangar, School 2 in THUG, Warehouse (as Training), Downhill Jam and 3 DLC levels in THUG2, Mall and Marseille in THAW. It is known that Robomodo used THUG2 source code, which might explain the level choice.

Game modes[edit | edit source]

Online mode[edit | edit source]

Online mode allows up to 4 players to join the host game. Unlike in previous installment, players are forced to wait for another players in lobby without being able to play (ironically, this is mostly how LAN play functioned in THPS2 on PC). Online play is not available in the PC version of the game.
