* Tony Hawk's Zombie Show

Printer-friendly page Print this story   Email this to a friend
Having recently started in reviewing the newest Tony Hawk game (that'd be "Proving Ground"), I have to say this: they did a great job of making a game that completely falls into the uncanny valley.

The screenshots don't do a good job of showing it, but if you play the game / watch the cinematics, it's there - everything is "close" but not right, the eyes don't look right (or focus on what they're supposedly looking at), the heads don't move correctly... my first view of "Tony Hawk" in the game could be uncharitably compared to a Resident Evil zombie.

I mean... at least the zombie is supposed to look like it's the walking dead.
