A proud legacy follows Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, a legacy which is pushed through walls, caught in geometry, and smothered by inexcusable anti-consumer nonsense.

KOF’s resistance to any grand story arc defies the pressure being applied by its rivals. Minimal solo options and routine online duels don’t reinvent anything either.
