Tony Hawk to Ride Again This Year

Let's get this out of the way. Tony Hawk: Ride was not a good game. Not by any stretch of the imagination. The board interface was terrible and the package was grossly overpriced considering it didn't actually work properly.

So imagine our surprise when we heard that Activision is planning a sequel due for the latter part of this year.

Acti CEO Mike Griffith acknowledged the game's universally low review scores during the company's Q4 results call, citing 'timing issues' as the cause.

"It took longer to optimise the hardware, leaving less time to optimise the software," he said. 

Apparently the plan is to spend more time sorting out the software itself so that it better interfaces with the board peripheral. Griffith also hinted that there might be potential for other titles to utilise the bespoke Ride board in the future.

We'll reserve judgment for now, but we're setting our expectations barometer to 'low' for this one.
