I thought the lag was just the D Pad sucking, but yeah, it is there for sure. It is only slight as you said, but it is there.
Picked this up earlier today as I've been highly anticipating it.
I love the redesigned old levels, and I'm having a blast. Got Warehouse and School II 100% complete so far.
I have only two complaints. They really should've used the original soundtracks from both games. The new songs are meh, but loving the old songs from the originals. And, c'mon, no Dead Kennedy's 'Police Truck', or Primus' 'Jerry was a racecar driver'? Mannnn..
My other complaint is the controls. It can get frustrating with the Xbox D-pad and/or analog stick. Also, not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but the games responsiveness seems very off, there is some milliseconds of lag between when I hit ollie, or try to kickflip, etc. It has taken some getting used to, and is a pain. And wallrides could have definitely used more work. Trying to get those bells in School II was a PITA!
Overall though, it is a fun bit of nostalgia, and a good $15 spent in my book. Looking at some of the achievements, and one being
Manual Master 20
Performed 15 manuals in one combo in School II with Rodney Mullen
Should be fun!
And yeah, those damn wall rides on the school level were indeed a huge pain in the ass. Finally did them though. I just need to secret DVD and I will have 100% the school level as well. Well also the sick score, but I will get that no problem. I do all the goals first, then the score, as that is the easy part out of each level so far.
Also it would have been really great if they could have kept the old soundtrack, definitely.
No need at all to say sorry, was just chiming in on why I do not mind it. I will be picking up Doom 3 as well, so maybe I am a sucker for these old games after-all.
Sorry it was just something that made me laugh because Doom 3 is coming out again and I'm totally looking forward to it despite playing it and completing it years ago.
I'm not sure if it's myself only, but due to the track record of games playability these days I find myself looking forward to older titles being re-released.
I'm tempted to pick TH up as everyone else, it was a good game back then with great music and good courses / parks. Funny thing is I'm not a huge skateboarding person, but the game was good!
