Whenever a company decides to remake or release a game with a ton of licensed music, it’s a scary proposition. You can never know if they will be able to get the rights to everything back. But it seems in the case of Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD, Activision has kicked it up to 11, securing many of the most beloved tracks.
Superman and When Worlds Collide are two of my favorites, the latter taking me back to Venice Beach and THPS 2, manualing from combo into combo. Those were some great times.
