From the makers of Tony Hawk Ride and Shred comes THPS HD, a modified upgrade to two classic ps1 era games. The game features 7 classic levels from Tony Hawk 1 and 2 and features career mode, projectives mode, free skate, etc. Any fans of the first two games will have fond memories of the original games as well as their share of frustrations (Downhill Jam). This game will probably not bring new fans to the series but its purpose is to go down memory lane for fans of the classics.
Step 0: Set up:
I would highly recommend changing your special tricks to Up Down and then whatever the button is. This is an incredibly easy combo to remember and will lead to less frustration. I also highly suggest buying a second special grind when you can and placing it on Down Up . You can also buy a special grab if you’d like because Rodney Mullen by default has a manual special rather than a grab but I found they were not necessary as regular grabs did the trick
Step 1: Online
There is only 1 online trophy for this game. It’s very simple though. All you have to do is win a match online. This can be done in online private mode to avoid any possible frustration.
Step 2: Career Mode
Career mode in this game is just like how it was in thps 1-3. You have 10 goals to obtain per level which range from high scores to collecting skate to getting the secret tape. Each level can be unlocked only doing a certain number of goals in each level but it is a requirement for plat to get all goals in all levels. You are able to hit start and R1 to see where all collectibles and money are on every map. Unless you are watching videos, this can be very helpful.
Step 3: Misc. Trophies
I would recommend doing the misc. trophies before projectives because it is a change of pace from the story mode. Some of the misc trophies will come naturally or with a few tries but some are fairly annoying and will take many retries. The one trophy I do suggest waiting on is “I don’t want no 2 minute man” for reasons I will explain in the trophy.
Step 4: Projectives Mode
The 4th and final step is projectives mode. These seem daunting at first but with the right strategy, most of them aren’t too bad. While story mode is relatively simple, some of the goals here require that one good run, which may take numerous restarts for certain levels.
