Everybody is aware that skateboarding can lead to nasty mishaps, and the recent release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 proves that digital skateboarding is no exception. The game launched with nothing but a tutorial and a level editor, accompanied by a day-one patch weighing in at a hefty 7.7 GB. The size of the game pre-patch is around 4.6 GB, just over half the size of the patch.
Missing content aside, the general consensus of the game thus far is anything but positive. It seems to be a glitchy mess riddled with bugs, amplified by a wonky physics engine and unsatisfying gameplay. Eurogamer released a short video highlighting the prominent issues on display. Worse still, the patch doesn’t seem to rectify these major issues, so perhaps exercise some caution before jumping into Tony Hawk’s latest outing.
