GamesRadar (Lucas Sullivan)
“Playing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 just makes me sad. Sad for anyone who bought the game, hopeful that it could recapture the series’ former glory instead of continuing to drive it so far into the ground that it’s practically at the Earth’s core.”
GameSpot (Peter Brown)
“Within THPS5 lies a basic skating game that’s difficult to enjoy, because you have to jump over numerous hoops and ignore a plethora of obvious issues to find the smallest amount of fun.”
“Featureless, broken, and ugly, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 is unacceptable as a full retail release in 2015.”
IGN (Marty Sliva)
“Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5’s rare moments of nostalgic joy are drowned out by its abundance of poorly thought out levels, control problems, bugs, and its glaring lack of attitude.”
Trusted Reviews (Stuart Andrews)
“Don’t buy Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 – not because it’s broken, but because it’s no damn good.”
VERDICT: A fail of epic proportions.
