Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD

Critic: AnthonyG (Metacritic) • "Whenever your skater falls over. The screen flashes a huge bright white light for a few seconds tlll it restarts. This has given me a massive headache and hurt my eyes after only a very short game. It really is that bad." Score: 0

    Why do they do this article? They never pick and good reviews with valid reasons and scores I mean flat 0's WTF kind of reviews are those.

      The point of this article is to point some of the most idiotic and hate-filled reviews they can find.

    i agree about the tony hawk white screen better without it

    Oh man the Tony Hawk one, all I can hope is it's some kid that never got to appreciate how amazing the originals were back in the 90's.

      And that was directed at the first comment of the tony hawk ones about the music. The others are just whiny, apart from the one about the flashing screen business, that is a valid point.

    I have seen worse comments in 'professional' reviews.

    Didn't we agree that gaming journalism, with rare exception, is generally crap anyway?

    Remember, you can't spell ignorant without IGN.


    I kind of feel like there's enough unnecessary negativity on the internet without celebrating and legitimising it through articles like this.
