Pro skateboarder accuses critics of being ‘snarky’ as game fails to enter UK Top 40
Globally recognised pro skateboarder Tony Hawk has spoken in defence of Activision’s Tony Hawk: Ride, accusing many critics of failing to give the game the credit he feels it deserves.
“Most snarky critics had their minds set before ever seeing/playing the game,” Hawk said on his Twitter profile. “I'm proud of what we created; it's innovative, responsive and fun.”
The star then added to The Sudbury Star, courtesy of VG247: "[Critics] 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.
"I don’t agree with people who say the board’s not responsive. I think that they’re just not giving it a fair shake. 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."
The comments came ahead of the news that Tony Hawk: Ride has failed to enter the ELSPA GfK-ChartTrack All Formats Top 40 in its first week of release.
It’s aggregated Metacritic rating currently stands at 48 (for the Xbox 360 version). The RRP for the game in the UK is £99.99.
