Iím hyped to get this on Switch. My daughters/wife never let me use the TV. I miss THPS2 on my iPhone. I could 100% each level first try.

I'd play a drinking game by myself with the original THPS.  100 percent every level in one try, drink a beer in between each level.  I always got stuck on San Francisco, I always thought it was impossible until i spoiled it by searching youtube for a speedrun.  I still like pulling it out and beating it every year or two.

Just downloaded this on Switch last night. SO HYPED! The graphics are a bit dodgy as would be expected for a Switch port, but the controls are good and it's a lot of fun to play docked and handheld. I haven't played the levels of THPS1 since 00', but I still have them all memorized.

Funny side note, each playable character's profile has regular/goofy, street/vert, and now there's a "mongo push" in the profile. Every single character is "never mongo" besides Koston. They made an entire category just to capture Koston's switch mongo, hahaha

super late to it but bumpin cuz finally got around to playing the remaster version on switch cuz it was onsale for $20.

the nostalgia factor ofc got me but also I feel like they updated the characters movements(flip tricks, grinds) because they feel way less robotic which makes the playability much better. I also haven't played any of the skate games in the last 10 years so this is filling that void a bit

$20 not wasted

Any word on if there's going to be a sequel? (3+4 remake?)

I believe Activision turned the studio behind it into a Blizzard or COD support studio. Maybe Microsoft revives it, but that might also mean it will be PC/Xbox only (and as a PS5/Switch user I'd be bummed, but not bummed enough to buy a Series X or build a gaming PC).

Bought it last month on sale and finally played it. I was 10 when THPS 1 came out and I was hooked as a kid since in coincided with me starting to skate. the nostalgia factor really hits ! Liked the remake, pleasant surprise.

Also they used the trick / combo system from following titles iirc (revert etc). Level design seems a bit clunky at times especially in THPS1 but this is what we got back in the day.

I missed a few songs from the originals but the recent one they added are OK. I get the licensing problems here.

I played with the D-pad, felt easier than the joystick. I did what I did when I was younger : doing ę realistic Ľ tricks haha.

(Thing that amazed me : my brain remembered the songs, spots, level design, mechanics or objectives for the most part. I mean it was 20+ years ago. And itís the same with the old games I replayed recently like Super Mario World, Killer Instinct, Tekkens, Crash Bandicoots, Gran Turismo, old GTAs, THPS, SSX gamesÖ my brain has a quantity of these things printed itís so strange.

I was a shy / secluded kid, since my mom passed away when I was 7 and my siblings way older, I got spoiled in terms of skate gear, comics, records and video games, I guess it was my world.)
