Since the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 early October, it has received nothing but major criticism and VERY POOR reviews, some reviews were as low as 3.5/10. A Terrible start to release an otherwise popular franchise.

Developer Robomodo released a patch last month that addresses some of the game breaking issues (better late than never I suppose)

However, with the patch in place it still doesn’t bring the wow factor that some of it’s predecessors had. Levels still seem bland and textures are poorly rendered. THPS5 is a game I had been looking forward to especially after loving the previous games back in my youth. I hope this doesn’t destroy the franchise, however Activision may need to consider a new developer in my opinion.

Check out the full patch notes below.
