Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is a set of the first two installments of the cult series of skateboarding simulators signed by the name of a popular skateboarder. They were completely re-mastered by Vicarious Visions, known from for the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Former employees of Neversoft Entertainment's development team, who created the original versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 and 2 from 1999 and 2000, also took part in the development of the games.

Mechanics

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a faithfully reproduced game and therefore contains all levels and a full list of skaters known from the original versions. Players can choose real players like Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Steve Caballero, Bob Burnquist, Jamie Thomas, Kareem Campbell, Rune Glifberg, Rodney Mullen, Eric Koston, Chad Muska, Elissa Thomas, Andrew Reynolds and Geoff Rowley. In the remasters we visit the skateparks in Warehouse, School, Mall, Roswell or Burnside that are known to fans.

The developers increased the number of targets during the game and added skateboard tricks, which appeared only in later parts of the cycle. We're talking about tricks like revert, lip tricks and wall plant. The gameplay mechanics remained unchanged. For performing missions and tricks (counted in hundreds), we get money, thanks to which we develop our skaters and can buy new skateboards. Thanks to this, it is easier for a player to perform more and more complicated feats.

Game modes

In both versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater you can play in single player, multiplayer or split screen mode. There are also Create-A- Park and Create-A-Skater editors, which are expanded to the original, where you can create unique parks for skateboarding and your own skaters, and then share the effects of your work with other players.

Technical aspects

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is more than just a classic remaster. The games were developed on the new engine from scratch, so that the graphics meet modern standards. The changes are not limited to the increase in resolution (4K on PC, PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X) and image smoothness (60 frames per second) and HDR support. Both parts boast high quality textures and models and animations of characters or modern lighting techniques. The refreshed releases of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 also include modern features such as the ability to quickly load levels after failed actions.

The soundtrack consists of most of the original songs and completely new songs. Among the performers and music bands there are Goldfinger ("Superman"), Powerman 5000 ("When Worlds Collide"), Bad Religion ("You"), Millencolin ("No Cigar"), Naughty By Nature ("Pin the Tail on the Donkey"), Papa Roach ("Blood Brothers"), Primus ("Jerry Was a Racecar Driver"), Lagwagon ("May 16th") and Rage Against Machine ("Guerilla Radio").
