Tony Hawk stands by Ride, “very proud” of it

Tony Hawk is not too fond of the critical response the latest game bearing his name, Tony Hawk Ride, has received. Reviews show that Ride is the lowest rated Tony Hawk game yet, with some outlets even mocking it, but the man is having non of it and says reviewers simply aren’t giving it a fair chance, also calling reports of the board peripheral being non-responsive false.

“They were ready to discredit it before they even tried it, and if it didn’t play exactly how they imagined it… then they passed it off,” Hawk says. “I don’t agree with people who say the board’s not responsive. I think that they’re just not giving it a fair shake. And I think a lot of them came into it with an attitude that it’s going to suck.”

Hawk says he played Ride every step of the way through development and that it’s a “super fun” game.

“I am very proud of it.”
