Fool me once. And why did I think that this game is going to be good, when Robomodo made f***ing 3 games that were **** I only played THPS HD on PC (with gamepad) and it sucked hard. This was the next in series after American Wasteland I played, so I had good expectations (though of course I've read bad reviews of Shred and Ride).
This is a serious downgrade from series and has nothing to do with going to roots. Why the hell flatland tricks, stickerslap, wallplant and walking were considered not-roots and were left out, while all these stupid power-ups and over-the-edge arcade stuff are somehow is roots? WTF?! Nevermind the overwhelming amount of glitches and bugs, you have to get your skill down and get used to NOT doing flatland tricks and stickerslapping (which I used alot!).
Level design is boring to say the least, even THPS1 had better level design.
This could be good for people who never played TH series before, but omni-present glitches and bugs destroy their experience in first 30 minutes. And I'm not even exaggerating here. My younger brother tried to play this game and he quitted after 30 minutes.
These guys were brave enough to slap 60$ price on this piece of...
And 7 Gig day one update? When the game is just under 5 Gb? This is a joke!
Do yourself a favor and don't buy this game. If you have PS4 then you're outta luck because there is no skating game for our platform available yet (except for OlliOlli). Xbox One owners will soon be able to play Tony Hawk's American Wasteland which is by far is the best TH title, IMO. I never played Proving Ground or Project 8, but I think that they're still good considering that Neversoft made them. It's definitely better than THPS5.
Ok, gotta go and get my refund for THPS5.… Expand

Also, that stupid "kill the guy who shot you" camera is useless most of the times - the enemy is behind the cover or you out of ammo. Whats even worse - you can't load from the last checkpoint during this moments. So you have to sit through all of this, then get the chance to load the game.
The game has no straight rhythm - you will be constantly slowed down by unskippable cutscene. Sometimes you're in the berserk mode after good action, you killed all the enemies and want to kill more, you rush into another room and... cutscene. What the hell?!
Oh, and that stupid video effects! All this shaky camera, light flashes, double vision, words coming out on the screen - it may be appropriate in the beginning of the game, but NOT all the time! Also, I don't remember getting hit this much, or having to restart the checkpoint in original Max Payne.
One more thing - no grenades! Enemies has them, but you don't. And I don't see any excuse for this. Why, Rockstar, why?
Two years of disappointment - first Duke Nukem, and now this. I wonder how Hitman will turn out? But I'm almost convinced now that it's going to be bad. It's a trend.… Expand
