Watch: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is a bit of a glitchy mess

Skaters gonna skate.

Eurogamer video supremo Ian Higton has played the new Tony Hawk's game for over an hour and already found it to be a bit of a glitchy mess.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is out in the US now (Friday in the UK), and comes with a day one update that's bigger in GB terms than the game itself. Still, the patch doesn't seem to improve matters, as the video, below, captured from the PlayStation 4 version after the update is applied, shows.

We see Tony Hawk's dead-eyed character model spinning out of control at the most innocuous of collisions, and constant glitching into walls, the ground and half-pipes as the cel-shaded graphics collapse.

Poor Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. What happened to you?

Eurogamer's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 review goes live this Friday.

Meanwhile, Skate, Skate 2 and Skate 3 are each 50 per cent off on Xbox 360 this week for Xbox Live Gold members. Funny, that.
