The best elements of the classic THPS games have been updated to create an all new skateboarding experience. The gameplay returns to controllers and focuses on the satisfaction of linking sick tricks for maximum points. The style and feel of the best levels from THPS and THPS2 have been refreshed for today's consoles, along with the great music from both games.

Step up to Kinect, young squire, and join the ranks of the Wreckateers, the finest medieval demolition service in all the land.

This will be the third year in a row that I take advantage of this deal. Microsoft seems to hold the best of the best arcade games for this time of year. If anyone tries any of these games let us all know. I am heading directly to my 360 to buy the Tony Hawk game right now. I remember playing that game for endless hours in college on my Dreamcast.

Tony Hawk HD for me as well. I used to play the hell out of THPS2 on my old Playstation, great memories of the hours that I spent on that game! I just hope that this HD revamp brings back some of the classic gameplay elements rather than just relying on some of the pointless add-ons that the later games have brought in.
Well, I think it's great that Microsoft is running a sale like this on the Arcade games, but I really wish there were more to choose from than just those five. Unfortunately, I don't see three there that I like enough to buy to take advantage of the free points! =(
