Legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk is upset about the low scores that Ride has been given at review. He thinks critics had unfair preconceptions.

"Most snarky critics had their minds set before ever seeing/playing the game. I'm proud of what we created; it's innovative, responsive & fun," tweeted Hawk.

The game's global review score average is 49 per cent according to Metacritic.
