Conclusion: It’s good to see the Tony Hawk series continue to try to do something different with itself while still maintaining the basic idea of skating. Downhill Jam however is a step in a different direction; not forward, but not really backwards either because I think it does cater to a different skating...
Excerpt: Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam was a departure for the series. Ignoring the Wii-specific control system, the game dumped the open-world play of past games in favor of a SSX -styled, trick-oriented racing game.
Excerpt: Even the greatest gaming franchises of all time have taken small side-steps in genre to increase their mass market appeal. Take that chubby little Italian pipe cleaner with the way-out-of-his-league little blonde honey.
Excerpt: Anybody remember the ‘Xtreme’ games for the original PlayStation? There was ESPN Extreme Games (which would late be known as 1 Xtreme), its sequel 2 Xtreme, and the final (and worst) 3 Xtreme.
Conclusion: It's hard to know what to be more pissed about -- that this lackluster port was brought over in the first place or that it will still probably sell due to the sheer number of PS2s out there. Don't be one of those people that gets suckered, though, please?
Conclusion: When looking back on last year’s version of Outlaw Golf 2 we see a game that really didn’t have anything overly wrong with it. Outlaw Golf had some very creative characters that all had really interesting personalities. So does Outlaw Golf 2 improve upon this winning formula?
Excerpt: Med et hav af serier i sit navn, er skateboardstjernen Tony Hawk næsten et ligeså godt salgsargument for spil, som en hvilken som helst latexklædt superhelt. Skal man dømme efter de groteske stunts, han har udført i spilform, står Hawk'en heller ikke tilbage for nogen muteret superbøf.
Conclusion: Po "zaledwie" dziesięciu miesięcznym opóźnieniu na półkach naszych sklepów wylądowała w wersji na czarnulkę gra Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam. Gra początkowo został wydana na nową next-genową konsolę Nintendo –Wii zaledwie parę miesięcy (2) po starcie konsoli w USA i Nipponie.
