This remake of the first two Tony Hawk titles is stellar. As with Activision's other remakes, this collection rejuvenates the PS1 classics for a modern age with completely redone visuals that look fantastic. The licensed soundtrack is mostly intact, and it's been augmented with dozens of new songs that fit the tone. Most importantly, though, it plays just how you remember, the tight controls and addictive combo-chasing gameplay as good as it's ever been. Complete with online multiplayer, a revamped create-a-park mode, and hundreds of challenges to beat, this is a brilliant remake and the best Tony Hawk game in years.
