My generation grew up playing the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games and it was one of the most successful franchise in the gaming scene during that period. Despite a near 10-year hiatus from releasing a new installment in the series, Activision has plans to release Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 on September 29th.
Unfortunately to the surprise of many longtime fans, the trailer depicts a game that looks like it was geared for PS2 or PS3 with visuals that will be far from impressive on the next-gen consoles of today. In all honesty, I think the original Skate title for Xbox 360 had more potential than this game appears to offer from the trailer provided.
Judging from the YouTube comments, it appears we are not the only ones who are voicing our disappointment based on the trailer:
