THPS HD PS3 release date without excitement

We have some good news for those of you with a PS3 who have been patiently waiting for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD to arrive. The game has been available on Xbox 360 for a number of weeks already, but we’re pleased to say that developers Robomodo have finally given PS3 owners a solid release date.

Without further ado, we can confirm that the remake to arguably one of the greatest games ever will be releasing on the PlayStation Store on August 28. Unfortunately though, it appears that not everyone is loving the return of Tony Hawk, with many reviews actually saying that the game falls short of recreating the magic that appeared on the original PlayStation in 2000.

If you still plan on getting the game though, it will be available before the end of the month, priced at just $15. For that low price though, there are some major features lacking in the remake, most notably the absence of the much loved create a park mode, as well as no support for split screen multiplayer either.

Releasing the game without split screen multiplayer is a pretty big sin given how much fun it was in previous Tony Hawk games. We have a feeling that fans would have even been willing to pay a little more than $15 if this feature made it, but sadly it didn’t and it leaves the lasting taste that the remake could have been a lot better.

Still though, many of the famous tracks from the original soundtracks are included, as well as some addictive new additions as well. You can’t beat cruising through Hangar or Venice Beach with Superman playing, so if anything just pick up the game for that.

Will you be picking up THPS HD on the PS3 on August 28, or have you been put off from the mixed reception for the Xbox 360 version?
