From gameplay perspective, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 has everything for the longtime series fans, and works like a time machine. However, changes in the progression system and addition of the profile leveling are killing the arcade mood of the original games.

A great remaster that brings memories to the series fans and it does its best to the classic THPS series, but it might not attracts the new players to this series.

As a recreation it highlights how good the original games were for their time. Challenging, original, addictive and damn fun to play.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a one-way ticket to the turn of the millennium. It's a complete, beautiful love letter to not only Tony Hawk himself as an icon but to a time when both the series and the sport of skateboarding itself were most pure and fun. As a bundle, and with the multiplayer providing even more longevity, this game offers unrivalled value.

If Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 obviously doesn't look as good as its PlayStation or Xbox counterparts, it's still a fun skateboard experience to take with you anywhere you want.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 finally brings back the noise of a beloved franchise, after so many failed attempts. This remaster compile the arcade gameplay and the sillyness of two famous games to deliver a classic but loving experience for every fan of the genre. If only this duo turned into a trio, the party would have been perfect.

Overall, we'd say this is a decent upgrade that makes effective use of PS5's capabilities. However, if you're yet to grab Sony's new machine, the PS4 version will serve you just fine until you do. For a more in-depth look at the game itself, read our more comprehensive Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 PS4 review.

Vicarious Visions has produced another excellent remake with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2. It brings those PS1 classics to the modern era with a wonderful visual upgrade, rock solid performance, and all the features you'd expect of a game released in 2020. Most importantly, though, it retains the specific feel of the franchise at its best, delivering an addictive, fast-paced, arcade-like experience. Old fans can rest easy knowing that the Tony Hawk games are back on form, while new players can dive into the skateboarding world for the first time. This game is sick, bro.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 on PS5 and Xbox Series it's same enjoyable skate game, now a little bit better thanks to next gen innovations... but keep in mid that graphically isn't a big jump ahead (it was very good on PS4/One), and it has HDR problems in PS5 and, worst of all, you probably will have to pay again to enjoy it.

Blemishes aside, Activision is doing so much right this time beyond just putting Vicarious Visions in charge. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 isn't going to blow people away, but it preserves the original experience with a few modern conveniences. It's a win.

Whether you’re a fan of the originals, or a curious party looking to get into skateboarding games, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a must play. All the original content, a smooth framerate, portability, loads of in-game customization, and a pinch of new content are a recipe for skateboarding success. Only a lack of create-a-skater options and lack of Spider-Man mar this fun flashback. This is what it’s like when worlds collide.
