This might take the throne as the best quick look ever based entirely on the intro alone.

Great ending.  Game looks significantly less great.  Shame.  I was hoping for more from Tony Hawk RIDE.

What? Why do you need an actual controller? Aren't there buttons on the side of the board?

Looked absolutely disgusting, until you cranked up the difficulty and it became an actual game.

Does anyone know the name of the song playing near the end? You can hear it around the 24:35-24:55 mark.

Two things:
 
There seems to be a lot of controller lag between your action and what happens on screen.
 
This still seems like it would be an amazing game for people who love real skateboarding (those people still living in the 90s).
 
Edit: Okay, a couple more...
 
In-game advertising blows, but that's a discussion for another time (though, seriously, when did it become okay to accept blatant advertising in a game you already paid for?)
 Not being able to steer and do what you want makes it a whooooooole lot less appealing in a "what the fuck were they thinking?" way.

Predictably awesome Quick Look, but I'm not buying this game until they let you do actual flip tricks with the board in "hardcore" mode. At the very least some vanilla kickflips and heelflips. 
 
Don't get me wrong, this still looks really, really cool, but maybe next year they'll have a stronger board with more functionality and then things can get really interesting.

Can we possibly get a 2nd quick look after Jeff's gotten used to the controls and thus show it on Hardcore or something? See how it is after the 'introduction'.

Man, Tony Hawk is getting right up there with Sonic for series that have been completely run into the ground.  2, 3 and 4 were amazing, THUG 1 and 2 were okay, and since then, nothing has been remotely worth my time and money.

Oh Jeff, I had a blast watching you trying to do grabs.  You feed the stereotype that gamers are terribly uncoordinated.  I would love to see a skateboarder try to do a grab by waving his hand frantically to the side or tail of the board.

.......i think i just saw the greatest introduction ever .....and best ending
 
I'm seeing lots on input lag and some random jumps and kicks that Jeff isnt trying to do. And the on-screen animation is jerky and awkward to look at. 
 
 I can see why X-Play gave it 1/5. I'm predicting 2/5 or less from Jeff later.
