IGN - Luke Reilly - 9 / 10Blemishes aside, Activision is doing so much right this time beyond just putting Vicarious Visions in charge. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 isn't going to blow people away, but it preserves the original experience with a few modern conveniences. It's a win.
Kotaku - Ian Walker - UnscoredTony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 proves that going backwards has been the best step forward for the series in 15 years.
Polygon - Ben Kuchera - UnscoredEven with all its changes, THPS1+2 perfectly captures a moment in time. It’s a damaged Polaroid photo scanned, digitized, and lovingly retouched. It’s gravel picked out of a scraped knee. It’s a night of sleep untouched by nightmares and insomnia. It is, as it always was, just what I need in this moment.
PowerUp! - James O'Connor - 8.7 / 10Everything I love about the original is still here; it’s just a little older, a little kinder, and a lot better looking.
Press Start - Brodie Gibbons - 8 / 10If you’re a long-time fan, here’s the only thing that really matters, the words you’ve been longing to read—these are the games you remember.

It's a complete, beautiful love letter to not only Tony Hawk himself as an icon but to a time when both the series and the sport of skateboarding itself were most pure and fun. As a bundle, and with the multiplayer providing even more longevity, this game offers unrivalled value.
TheSixthAxis - Thomas Hughes - 10 / 10As a recreation it highlights how good the original games were for their time. Challenging, original, addictive and damn fun to play.

GamesRadar+ - Ben Tyrer - 4 / 5 starsTony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 finally brings back the noise of a beloved franchise, after so many failed attempts. This remaster compile the arcade gameplay and the sillyness of two famous games to deliver a classic but loving experience for every fan of the genre. If only this duo turned into a trio, the party would have been perfect.

God is a Geek - Chris White - 9 / 10Pro Skater 1 + 2 not only perfectly recreates the pure joy of the originals, it improves on them greatly. The visuals have obviously been improved, but so have the responsive controls. If you have liked a Tony Hawk game in the past, you'll feel right at home here.
Hobby Consolas - Alberto Lloret - Spanish - 88 / 100Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 are perfect remasters that remind me fondly of the original, offering excellent gameplay and tons to do. They look great, sound great, and have tons of replayability.
Attack of the Fanboy - Dean James - 4 / 5 starsTony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 moves between the old and new like fish on water. It offers the same control, the iconic levels and the gameplay we used to love, but with a new and shiny body, that offers more options than ever. It's not perfect, but it's the skate game that lots of us were expecting.
After falling off the board entirely with Tony Hawk's previous outing, Activision has successfully gone back to the beginning and proven again what once made the series so iconic with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2.
