The old saying goes for skateboarders, "If you fall off your board, you get back on." That is what this series was trying to do with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5. After the events of Ride and Shred, the series had fallen on its face, and Activision was trying to get it back on its feet. Unfortunately, the fifth game in the Pro Skater series failed to capture the magic of the four games before it. Gamers felt that it was too buggy to play, a glitched mess, there weren't enough inspiring activities to do in the game. As this might be a final nail in the coffin for the series, it's not too late to get this series back on its feet and skate once again.
