Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 is Activisions upcoming entry to the Tony Hawk series. The game is highly anticipated and shows a lot of promise for fans who have been waiting for a true to its roots Tony Hawk game. The new Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 assists in-game make the game even more inviting to new players.
How Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 assists makes the game inviting to newcomers
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1+2 is the remaster of the PlayStation 1 original entries. Both games are held in high accords for the series and has a lot of expectations behind them.
While everything we have seen so far is impressive, some screenshots of the game show that the game aims to be accessible to old players and new players alike.
Old players will be able to use classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 or 2 control scheme, and some assists options can help newer players pull off combos without the fear of losing their streak or manually holding their balance.
The new assists could be a bone of contention between the new and old players, and this will mean new players could rack up massive scores and be added to the leaderboards, discouraging old players.
However, if Activision plans on disabling leaderboard ranking for those who don’t have assists on, it should be a fair and balanced way of keeping the community happy.
Assists in the game remove all player-side effort of holding a grind, or a manual and leaves it all to the game to do it for them. Players who are unable to balance either properly will be able to score high combos with relative ease and with the addition of no-bails can also rack up massive combos and multipliers.
Hopefully Activision does the obvious and separates the leaderboards for players who have assists on and off. While the leaderboard of assists will quickly fill up with scores full of 9’s, the leaderboard without assists looks like it could be quite challenging to compete against.
