Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 releases today but some of you won’t even know it. In a surprising turn of events, the Metacritic page for the game is currently showing zero Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 reviews which may shock some of you.
This never happens for a game either. Regardless of embargos in place, gamers always leave early reviews on a game prior to release, but it hasn’t happened for THPS5 reviews so far.
There were obviously some doubts on the game prior to launch with the sudden change of art style so close to release, although some hardcore fans are still awaiting professional reviews before really passing judgment on the new title.
As you can see above though, there’s no feedback on the game whatsoever yet. You may also want to know that there are no THPS5 reviews on YouTube either – despite the fact that the game is releasing today.
Is this worrying behaviour for you if you hoped to buy the game today or later this week, given the fact that there appears to have been zero marketing? Give us your thoughts and keep an eye on the Metacritic page above for when reviews do start to show up.
