SummaryWhat A Way To Ruin The Tony Hawk Franchise, Activision.
The GoodWhat happened to Tony Hawk and its stagnant series? I don't know what's gotten into the company that Pitfall built. But with a skateboarding legend like the retired former X Games champ that spawned memorable games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater's 1, 2, and 3, and Tony Hawk's Underground 2, things were pretty rough since it all started in 2009.
Activision tried its best with Tony Hawk: Ride and the game was a fall from grace much to its loyal fanbase. And it only gets much worse when they release Shred in 2010. It has a few good moments including unique levels, art design, and soundtrack.
The BadShred also has a lot of miscalculated attempts to fall off guard with the use of the awful peripheral board. The board lets players learn special moves until you continue to fall off the half-pipe over and over again. Just the same as Ride, Shred has becomes a laughing stock of the series and flipping the board just won't help that much. Even more frustrating is that the series is put on hold after the bad reception and sluggish sales at about 3,000 copies worldwide marks the beginning of the end for this ailing brand.
