I can see how the cel-shaded look is a benefit here. In these games, you have to be very aware of the level geometry, where the grind rails are, how the pipes are shaped, etc., in order to put together good scores. This simplified look makes it easier to pick out those elements.

That was hilarious. Game still looks like hot garbage.

Has a game that did not provide review copies prior to the street release ever been good?

The game is less than 5 gbs and the patch is over 7. Yikes! Also, the 60 dollar asking price is laughable.

As much as I wanted a new THPS game, this doesn't sound at all worth buying, even at bargain bin prices.

Too bad, really.

Agreed. I would have loved to get this game, but it just looks way too bad and the asking price is insane.

Polygon's brief impressions - http://www.polygon.com/2015/9/29/942...eplay-overview

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is a really bad game, and it's not worth the $60 price of admission on current-gen consoles. It's extremely buggy, even after its monstrously large patch — even to the point of failing to boot up on my Xbox One until I created a new account on the console. Its physics engine seemingly doesn't exist, allowing your skater to perform sequences of tricks while standing perfectly still, or causing them to crash on the lip of a quarter pipe for no reason whatsoever. You're forced into its broken online lobbies, where other players stutter like laggy ghosts, and where most interactive objects cease to function entirely.

And funny enough, EA has all three Skate games 50% off on XBL now

Too bad it sounds like the game is no good. I used to love these games and might have considered getting it at some point when the price dropped but it doesn't sound worth it.

The scores are impressive so far:
