In 1999 Activision stole my youth by providing me with the first Tony Hawk game, which I played endlessly. The years went by loving the franchise and then Skate came along, I don’t have anything against Skate — it just wasn’t for me. If I wanted a realistic skateboard experience I could have just grabbed my board and went outside. On September 29 Robomondo took over for Neversoft and brought back the beloved title and hoped to steal my free time again. They claimed it was going back to its roots and would capture the essence of the original Tony Hawk games that made them so successful and I could not have been more excited. So did they?
