Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam (Wii)

 

Activision's Tony Hawk skateboarding games have undergone some pretty serious changes over the years, but this latest offshoot of the main series is taking things in a new direction: down. Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam takes the trick-oriented gameplay of...

When Activision first announced that the Wii version of Tony Hawk was going to be a racing game I was skeptical. Being a long-time fan of the series it was...

Fresh Take On The Franchise ; Easy To Pick Up And Play ; Great Level Design

It's a given anymore that every new console launch is going to be accompanied by something with "Tony Hawk" in the title, but while Project 8 was making the rounds on every other platform in sight, Activision opted to take a different approach for the...

Downhill Jam tosses out the familiar Tony Hawk gameplay in favor of a fast and frenzied racing game, and because it is such a sharp turn in a different direction, fans of the franchise may want to consider giving this spin-off a rental before shelling...

Is this the next evolution of a franchise?

At first blush, Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam for the Nintendo Wii may seem like a throwaway title. It certainly doesn't stack up to the other next-gen Tony Hawk entry, Project 8. While Project 8 perfected the traditional mechanics of the series-such as...

Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam review for the WII

 

A slippery slope.

Good control; Fast; Top-notch soundtrack; Lots of events

Lackluster graphics; Repetitive; Repetitive

At E3 2006, nothing short of two stealth kills, a hail of business cards, some lies, and an impressive series of back flips got me past miles of nerds and into the forbidden Wii booth. I quickly found out that the inside was as crowded as the out, and...

It's a different direction for the Birdman, and it's a good one

Race and trick mash-up ; Great speed, big air ; Rockin' soundtrack

Landing spinning tricks ; No online play ; Enough with Rob Zombie

Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam

 

Toys For Bob and Activision score an SSX-style hit on Wii.

Plays just like EA's SSX series; very fast; tons of different paths; controls work really well; great music

Might be too much of a departure from the Tony Hawk license for some; initial learning curve can be steep

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Neversoft and Activision have a soft spot for Electronic Arts and EA Big’s SSX series. Their latest skateboarding and first Nintendo Wii game, Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam, plays more like that downhill...

Overall, Downhill Jam is a decent Nintendo Wii title that doesn’t control poorly enough to discredit, but isn’t deep or engaging enough to praise. Tony Hawk fans will most definitely want to check out Project 8 instead. Even the Nintendo DS version of...
