    Whether this game is seen as the next great portable skateboarding game or a less visually pretty home console game, the most cogent point is that it plays incredibly and with so much to do across both of the remade games, this is one of the best skateboarding games ever made.

    This is a superb port of one of the finest arcade sports experiences of them all, and instantly becomes an essential purchase for Switch owners.

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 on the Nintendo Switch is a fantastic port. Sure, it's graphically inferior and not as pretty to look at, but that's the only noticeable concession made to get it to run on Nintendo's beloved hybrid console. That's not to say it's being rendered in "potato mode," by the way - it still looks great for what it is, with each real-life skater clearly distinguishable despite the lower pixel count. With the outrageously impressive amount of content and extremely rewarding gameplay loop, there's nothing to stop this port being a solid recommendation for Switch owners.

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a great remake. Despite some issues on Nintendo Switch, it knows how to adapt the original titles with a series of really interesting content, while keeping intact the characteristics that made them timeless classics.

    Tony Hawk and the gang land on Switch with a fantastic adaptation of a great remaster. Two of the best sport games ever made, now playable on the go with great visuals, so you can’t go wrong with this one.

    Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is an impressive Switch port that make graphical cuts in just the right places. Those cuts ensure a smooth and consistent gameplay experience that sets a new standard for Tony Hawk games on the go.

    Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 does a decent job of bringing the game into 2021, however it falls short in a few unnecessary ways that might keep newcomers to the series from enjoying it.

The attention to detail that was put into this remake is just amazing. The game is just how remember it back on the PS1 and the N64 with elements from Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 and 4 thrown in there too. The levels are recreated to perfection the controls feel absolutely perfect the soundtrack is all here this game just feels like a pipe dream. I will never stop playing this masterpiece Expand

It's simply fun again toActivision managed very well with the new implementation of "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2" on the Nintendo Switch. It's simply fun again to skate in the familiar parks with the popular icons and always unlock new content. Also, the motivation to create your own skater and parks and share them with other players has become simply beautiful. So you get better graphics and controls than before in the original. If you like to play with Tony Hawk and his friends, you should definitely pick up "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2". Expand

    When you play remasters or faithful remakes of games you considered classic back in the day there’s always an element of worry. So many titlesWhen you play remasters or faithful remakes of games you considered classic back in the day there’s always an element of worry. So many titles and their success are a product of their time but don’t necessarily hold up well on a modern console due to changes in sensibilities or tastes. Whatever concern I had for whether the original 2 Tony Hawk titles would still shine was quickly shattered though, and these new enhanced versions have allowed me to reconnect to a truly addictive loop of challenges and fun that so many developers since have been unable to even come close to touching. It isn’t just the tricks, it isn’t just the attitude, and it isn’t just some sort of flashiness that grabs you but fades as you settle in. The stage layout in these titles is absolutely superb, and each newly-unlocked locale will challenge you to explore, work out routes, and then sometimes painfully work to execute in order to grab every carefully-placed object in the stage. Nothing is by accident, everything is by painstaking design. Truly, if you were a fan back in the day you won’t be disappointed, and if you’ve never partaken of the experience before this is a terrific opportunity to become acquainted with two of the absolute best sports titles ever made.

    Awful controls, unstable gameplay, poor menu navigation. Overall terrible on the Nintendo Switch. Doesn't seem like they put enough time inAwful controls, unstable gameplay, poor menu navigation. Overall terrible on the Nintendo Switch. Doesn't seem like they put enough time in game testing before it was released considering all the goals I try to complete over and over again, meanwhile the original versions never had this issue. Why re-release/remake these levels several times? Cash grab much? I haven't experienced anything more boring and repetitive while gaming when I'm playing this game. I think I said enough already, I'm not gonna waste more time on this review. I've already put in hundreds of hours for the first two games, but what about the other predecessors that had many great reviews and scores as well. Are we just gonna toss those ideas in the trash? That would make them more money if they just re-release 3-7 (American Wasteland) from the franchise. Expand
