Hawk: Reviews smacked RIDE "before they even tried it"

tonyhawk2

Tony Hawk RIDE's not very good. Look. Hawk himself reckons the scores are hokum, though. The reviewers just didn't give the peripheral-based game a chance, apparently.

"They were ready to discredit it before they even tried it, and if it didn't play exactly how they imagined it... then they passed it off," Hawk told the Sudbury Star.

"I don't agree with people who say the board's not responsive," he added. "I think that they're just not giving it a fair shake. And I think a lot of them came into it with an attitude that it's going to suck.

"I know that [RIDE] is super fun, and I think there's a misconception that I just stick my name on a game," he said. "I brought this idea to Activision, and I saw it through, I've been playing it every step of the way and I am very proud of it."

Yeah. Thanks, Kotaku.
