So, consensus.. not worth 10 bucks if you already own it?

ID: gsbxt2a

If you want the Skeleton character and a few more skins then it's not the worst 10$ you could spend. If you really play this game a lot then it's totally worth it.

ID: gschy61

It's only worth it if you have a tv/display that supports 1080p at 120hz. Other than that, the haptic feedback is not good. There is a trigger effect for doing reverts(why???) and the audio sounds less clear.

ID: gscim8y

Gotcha. Yeah I've got a great 4K TV, but only 60 FPS. I was more interested in haptics but everyone said it sucks so.. that's too bad.

It's also not necessarily a visual powerhouse.

Paid $10 extra for this

ID: gsatsqf

activision moment

ID: gsazirk

But Crash 4 got a free upgrade. I think they saw noone who bought crash would pay for the upgrade whereas THPS fans would buy an upgrade.

ID: gsb2xfg

Yeah I'll likely do the same just for the haptic additions for the PS5. I'm still only halfway through it anyways.

I just need to get a lot better. I used to kick some ass at this game and now I'm crap again. What up with that?!?

ID: gsbaocc

It’s harder at first in one campaign because you unlock stats a lot slower. You could have Ollie, hang time, rail balance and speed maxed after like 2-3 levels on the originals since you bought stats with objective cash.

After that then you’ll probably be smooth sailing except for some of the gap chain challenges which are actually tough.

ID: gsd55an

I’m with you used to score a million plus easy now I struggle to break 100k

I own the deluxe edition on PS4 which I was under the impression was a free upgrade, but the store wants to charge me 10 dollars. Is this a store glitch or was I under the wrong impression.

ID: gsaybkx

I just was able to redeem mine, the deluxe upgrade bundle showed as free.

ID: gsbbl9p

It's free for deluxe edition, 10 for normal copies.

ID: gsbykyb

I have the deluxe edition, it's still wanting to charge me.

ID: gsbvscy

Also own the deluxe version. Upgrade was free for me.

ID: gsaxuws

I've read this as well.. may be a glitch?

got the PS4 disc version but have a digital PS5... don't think I can have the free upgrade, any advice?

ID: gsbc51k

If you still have the PS4, you should stick to playing it on there. I don't think it's worth paying full price for the digital PS5 version unless you can find someone to buy the game off of you.

ID: gsc5gfy

I feel for you, but maybe you have a friend with the Disc PS5 you can borrow for a few minutes?

6 : Anonymous2021/03/26 22:01 ID: gscfdd1

News flash for most of this thread: If you don't see the value, just don't buy it. Pretty simple stuff. People can do whatever they want with their $10.

7 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:50 ID: gsb5veg

If anyone is looking to upgrade mainly for the haptic feedback dont bother cuz it sucks ass

ID: gsbvkfd

Really? I think it feels great.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:52 ID: gsaxxy8

I'm tempted to upgrade to try the 120 fps out. How is the haptic feedback and adaptive triggers?

ID: gsaybh9

It sucks, seriously disappointed

ID: gsazlr5

Really? I thought the haptics felt really good. Not much going on with the triggers but I'm not sure what to expect.

Fuck this game and fuck activision. $100 collector’s edition that includes digital deluxe content code and those assholes still want more money.

ID: gsaxasy

If you have the deluxe, it’s my understanding it’s a free upgrade but it’s 10 bucks if you don’t have that deluxe edition. Doesn’t negate your point at all tho.

ID: gsc3ubp

You paid 100 bucks on a game. Da fuq my man, you are part of the problem

ID: gscfuzf

it comes with a real skateboard deck to be fair.

ID: gscdi3p

If you paid $100 for a video game, you're a part of the problem in the first place as it's you they cater to.

ID: gscep8w

Not that it’s really your business but the game was a gift from a relative who remembered playing the original games when we were children. They know I like collecting things and thought the deck would be a neat wall decoration for my gaming room.

Am I being petty that I don’t get an upgrade for a game that was gifted to me for free? Absolutely.

Does that make activision’s actions less scummy? Not at all.

1080p 120 fps on PS5

1440p 120 fps on XSX

WOW down voted for providing info, looks like we have some salty fan boys.

11 : Anonymous2021/03/26 17:04 ID: gsb7txz

Just threw away $10 basically. Looks the same as the PS4 version

ID: gsc7fhj

Sorry about that, if it is any help at least it wasn’t fully in vain - you helped out a few others on the decision (like me)

How does this compare to the Skate games? Was a huge fan of those and I’ve heard tony hawk is really good, but seems much more arcadey

ID: gsbqdov

These are the games from the 90's remastered, American Wasteland was open world but that was like mid-2000's IIRC.

THPS 1-4 are all arcadey 90's/early 2000's games

ID: gsaunwn

Exactly. Very arcadey. Complete opposite of realistic skate.

ID: gsbq9v7

This game is about doing the most unbelievable shit you could ever imagine on a skateboard. You could do some crazy stuff in skate, but that game tried to keep the trick lines somewhat believable.

ID: gsayods

The skating in THPS is extremely unrealistic and over-the-top. You'll routinely pull off tricks and combos that no human could ever hope to achieve in real life -- your character might as well have superpowers. It's much more fast-paced than the Skate games (which I also like). It's not open-world, there are distinct levels to skate around in, but there's still some exploration as the levels are reasonably big and have hidden areas, collectibles, etc.

ID: gsb0o1k

your character might as well have superpowers

So here I am, doing everything I can
Holding on to what I am
Pretending I'm a superman

13 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:28 ID: gsb2wz0

The annoying thing is If actually pay them for a decent update to CTR, it needs it way more than this.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:03 ID: gsazfxv

i bought the standard edition on ps4, and I don't mind forking up $10 for some noticeable improvements. can anybody tell me if it's worth it?

ID: gsbbsp0

I upgraded and to be honest the PS4 version on the PS5 was already great because of the SSD. Loading times are relatively the same. The added difference is now the native 4k which is nice and the 3D audio which does sound better on headphones. Haptic feedbacks are okay but nothing very special.

ID: gsb0d1m

It’s not if you don’t care about 120fps. You also need the right screen to even see the improvement.

ID: gsbjh7m

I'm actually really curious about the activity cards, I'm wondering if they can help jump around, or to keep track of the hundreds of challenges this game has

15 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:05 ID: gsazq14

Don't bother. Dualsense is lazy probably the worst implementation I've seen so far. Ps4 version still superior because it's my drinking game of choice and I can play dualsense and dualshock 4 instead of having to go out and buy another ps5 controller for this version

alright enjoy your shitty "next gen" version then lol

ID: gsb1n73

Agreed. I only got the upgrade to try out what I assume would be the awesome haptic feedback, a skating game is so well suited to it.

But yeah, they are nothing special. I was expecting grinding rails to feel super realistic, but it barely vibrates.

Astro's Playroom really spoilt me.

16 : Anonymous2021/03/26 15:41 ID: gsawjcm

Wait, I thought Vicarious Visions got absorbed into Blizzard, and that they weren't working on this game anymore? Does this mean we could still get the other games remastered?

ID: gsaxa63

There's really no way of knowing at this point unfortunately.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/26 17:27 ID: gsbarbk

Lol is there ANY difference?
