One of the best things about Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 was the split screen. Four players was amazing fun, so it’s bound to be in the new HD remake due next month, right?
“That was a tough decision for the team’, says Robomodo’s Josh Tsui in an interview with PSU. “Given the limited scope of the game we had to make some choices on what goes into game. Split screen was talked about heavily but in the end we had to really look at the way people play nowadays which is more online.”
“Having both split screen and online would have sacrificed a lot of time and quality to work in the amount of time that we had.”
Understandable reasoning, but disappointing all the same.
