Ahhh, high definition remakes. Games that studios hope will make a pretty penny off of nostalgia. They’re relatively easy to pump out, and without having to create a game from the ground up, its a guaranteed money maker. Now comes an HD remake of the most prolific extreme sports franchise in history, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Covering locales from the first two games and using game mechanics taken straight from the second game, this should appeal to everyone who played the old games back in the day. But is the novelty worth the price tag, or does the sheen wear off through the rose tint glasses?
