Cheers EAC, think it's time to throw a 720 madonna while hitting a crack on the half pipe. Or something!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on Tony Hawk, Peej. I think you and I are similar fans of the series so if you enjoy it, I can safely assume I will too :)

I've loved the series to pieces (up till Project 8 at least) so it was interesting to see what Robomodo did with a relatively safe bet - a HD rework of classic and well loved TH content.

On the plus side:

Those levels are every bit as good as I remember them, AND rather nicely, a lot of the same ways of accessing the hidden bits, and ramping up your score still work.

I had to try and remember what the soundtrack was like for TH 1 and 2 (better than the one you get supplied with this) but the inclusion of Bass (how low can you go?) just about saves its ass. Just about.

Gameplay wise, Robomodo need to be shown why EA's Skate has royally pissed all over Tony Hawk's retirement fund. Skate (particularly Skate 3) has that buttery-smooth transition between allowing you to take the piss a bit with each move, using gravity and friction to your advantage, and pushing the envelope of what's possible. TH HD pretends it's going to let you do that, but then erects a sodding huge brick wall right in front of your face, so rather than a subtle slide to a halt, or a rumpled-rag-doll effect when you fall, it's like your character is made of lead, hitting a lead curtain, while wearing lead boots riding a lead board with lead wheels.

The camera system is sodding awful. If (like me) you've got used to Skate's pan around and zoom stuff, TH HD's camera system feels properly old fashioned and limiting.

But, and here's the but. It's addictive like crack. Just like TH used to be, so for all the fucked up frankensteinian mess it is, it had me royally hooked for a couple of hours and I'm aching to get back in and unlock more of those lovely lovely classic levels (I could seriously just spend all day playing Hangar).

It's not 1200 points of sexy, it's almost forgiveable at 800 points and it's nowhere near as good as Skate 3 or even Project 8 - but those classic levels really are nice (but you know what? The more I think about it, the more I'm itching to go and build the buggers in Skate 3's park constructor tools instead!)

Play the demo, if you can put up with the handling and gameplay you will definitely love those classic levels again.

What annoys me is that it has only 7 levels, and is missing some stone-cold classics like Skatestreet, Philadelphia and Bullring but has Mall and the worst THPS level EVER - Downhill Jam.

Played a bit more last night and the more I played the angrier I got. It's like it's TRYING to annoy you as you play. "Sorry what's that, you just wallrode that bell in exactly the same way you're trying to now? I can't let you do that, Dave" and it dumps you on your face.

The camera system is truly horrible and the controls feel really old fashioned now in light of both Project 8 and Skate.

Feel like a bit of an ingrate moaning about it after I got a chance to review it but Robomodo have done it again - fucked TH's retirement fund royally :)

Considering the amount of divorces he's been through I think it's Tony's ex-wives that are the ones that maybe missing out!

Oochers.

I guess his kid's doing pretty well on the international comp circuit at the moment so he can always bung his old man a tenner from time to time.

I re-read what I wrote last night in a fit of euphoria over those old levels and it does read better than a 1 doesn't it :)

Playing Mall and getting stuck in the scenery / floor for the umpteenth time got real old real quick (it's odd where the level ends too, you're supposed to be propelled back to the start but often end up in black space till the timer runs out).

Grrrr!

Fair enough Rich, I hate it when mail servers go nuts everyone gets on your back!

A copy is winging its way through the ether to you Chris.

One thing I didn't mention in the Wreckateer review was that it's the first game released that has Avatar Famestar support.

If you google it you'll realise why I didn't, it's fucking pointless.

Not for review because of the NDA (though that might get lifted), but I just noticed a LBP Karting Beta code in my inbox. Anyone want it? I already got one through other means earlier.

You need a US account. The beta ends on July 31. It's a 3.5Gb download...

I worked this out just from the name, no more effort required! :p

Excellent stuff, thanks for that! I'll give it the once over. I'm guessing the NDA will lift once the review copies go out (ahhh if only we could get back on Sony's good books and get review stuff again)

Seeing as EAC seems to have a way with PRs, any chance you can get a Deadlight code, yo?

Looks like he already did!

See if you can give your lovely pinball buddies a kick up the arse and get iOS versions of their lovely goodies?

Oh and a gold plated toilet. I would really like a gold plated toilet.
