Summary: So, hot off of the wildly successful American Sk8land tour, you and Tony are headed back to good old San Francisco to relax. But when you arrive, you are challenged by and old rival of Tony's, the awesomely 80's Antonio. Seems he wants to test your downhill boarding skills. And so, while Tony sits in the background, you head off all over the globe to defeat Antonio and his crew. That's the setup for this new Hawk game, but can it live up to its legacy?
Summary: I wasn't able to purchase this game from Amazon. I got a message that my credit card was credited for the amount of this game, but it wasn't clear enough that they could deliver this game, neither the reason. So I had to figure out that it wouldn't be available, and I ended buying it myself in another store. But the game was in stock when I entered my order. It is a good game but probably your kid need to be really into the skating world to take more of it.
Summary: This game is really fun and has some cool stuff you can do! This is better than it's GBA or Wii counter parts. The levels have some pretty good detail and are a good length for a DS game. The cutimization is much biger than skate land plus you can unlock new outfits and download special ones too! The story and jam sesions are short but fun. Butt the real fun comes from all the multi player fun with up to 4 people!
Summary: With all the other systems getting a traditionally themed Tony Hawk game, the Nintendo portables (and the Wii) are getting a Tony Hawk game with a new spin. Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam takes the series from it's traditional trick and mission based roots and makes it into a downhill racing game.
Summary: The fps, the size of the levels, the gameplay, all things you want in a racing game. And wi-fi!!! I am not sure what Gamespot is smoking. If you don't believe me listen to the reviewer's blog. It's obvious that he hates dealing with anything but Xbox360 titles. If this isnt your genre or platform, then why are you reviewing it. This game is great look at the Game Rankings to see all the reviews!!!
Summary: Fans of TH: American Sk8land are going to find Downhill Jam very familiar. Using the same game engine as Sk8land, the design team has tweaked the gameplay ever so slightly to keep the experience fresh, while at the same time making learning the game very intuitive. Going away from the typical Tony Hawk roaming around a city, Downhill Jam lays tracks out for you to race, trick, and combo on.
Excerpt: "...are signed up to represent Tony Hawkes downhill racing team and you are set a number of goals to complete in order to access other levels of the game. In addition there is the ability just to free skate the different levels or you can opt to enter a race off against other boarders. The controls work well as visually the game is great, some of the trick moves are easy to master as are the goals to achieve however at the other extreme some are absurdly ...
