Game Storyline
Players can choose to play as Tony Hawk or one of eight original characters. Additionally, they can create their own character with the Create-A-Skater feature. You can create your own skateboard, too, or simply choose from a wide variety of stock skateboards.

You have the option of selecting from contemporary boards, old school "fishtails," longboards, and 70s skateboards, all of which have different attributes that will have an effect on gameplay.

Gameplay
Developed for the Wii, gamers use an innovative and intuitive control system as they take on the role of Tony Hawk or one of eight other characters. Choose who you want to be, and then compete in specific time-based challenges in one of three gameplay modes including race, trick and slalom.

Gamers can also challenge friends in head-to-head competitions with up to four players at once, as they pull off a variety of high-velocity stunts, all while racing in populated environments filled with cars, pedestrians, and buildings.

By C. Leiby on September 12, 2007
My 5-year old is obsessed with the Hawkman, and so this was one of our first games for the Wii. I was a bit nervous because I've found past Tony Hawk games tricky for me, let alone for him, to master.

Imagine my delight when we started playing this. It's just outright fun: the characters are funny, the maps are cool with lots of different paths and shortcuts, the music is pretty sweet, and the gameplay is downright addictive. And best of all, my son picked it up lickety split. Heck, it's taken months of playing it before I've managed to get half as good as him at the trick courses!

It's the simplicity of the controls that makes this a perfect game when you don't want to cramp your hands or brain trying to remember some convoluted button sequence to do JUST the right move in JUST the right place at JUST the right time. And the difficulty ramps up perfectly, opening up courses of increasing difficulty and length as you go.

I've read some lousy reviews of this from magazines and critics. Glad to see some real-world players giving this game the props it deserves. Bring on Downhill Jam 2!

This is a great Wii game that actually takes advantage of the motion sensing functionality of the Wii.
In this game you control a racer with the Wii-mote in the Steering style. You can race or try to get a high score on the trick mode (like in SSX (PlayStation 2)). You can attack your opponents and if you hit jumps you can do all sorts of moves (also like SSX Tricky). In trick mode there are multipliers that increase your score (like in SSX 3..., ok so this isn't the most original game). Some people may have some issues since this game is quite unlike any other TH game, but it is actually quite similar to a particular boarding game.
Let me spell it out: Tony Hawk + SSX = one of the most fun Wii titles.

In the game you have the choice of several characters with slightly differing stats, as well as the ability to create your own character. As you play the single player game you can unlock new boards, people, and racing venues. All of the racing locations are based (somewhat liberally) on real world locations, like Glastonbury, Rio, Maccu Piccu, Rome, San Francisco...
This game is also a great multiplayer game and I guarantee you'll have lots of fun (or lots of cursing depending on how you finish your race).

This game is easy to learn, the controls are simple to understand, and anyone can pick up and play. Mastering the game however is a difficult process.
To be honest, I didn't expect much from this game, but it really has a lot to offer.

Multi-player game (up to 4 in the Mario Kart tradition) can play this FANTASTIC, realistic and incredibly exciting, fun game. WOW is the word for this one because it DELIVERS and is extremely fun and challenging! Do all kinds of tricks and combat the other players to be first in the many cool races. This is HOT and fun, fun, FUN!!!

As a review said earlier, this game is not very original. I'm a huge fan of the ssx series, and while playing this I realized how similar it was, but still incredibly fun. I play multiplayer with 4 people, its so fun. Our favorite is doing big air (trick), makes my arms kinda sore, shake the remote backwards to do backflips and other cool moves. Other cool game modes are steal the head and elimination. A lot of cool courses, I believe its 12 in total. I highly recommend this game for those who want a fun multiplayer game, extremely similar to ssx, like on tour, but oh well, still awesome.

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 snowboarding title than the skateboarding franchise that propelled extreme sports into the video game industry. Though this is a tragedy in some ways, it works in others, and as a result Downhill Jam is a game that shows potential but skids to the finish line with plenty of scratches and bruises.

In the game's primary gameplay mode, different races and runs are selected and then performed. There are a lot of different events to choose from, including races, trick contests, and slalom runs. There are even special missions that ask you to do things like knock over a large number of pedestrians or cause a certain amount of damage to destructible objects. Fortunately, though the missions get a little repetitive and are sometimes too easy, there is an incentive for replaying difficult missions and earning higher ranks: new skateboards can be unlocked, and even new characters. Progressing through the game is simple enough; win a few events and you'll unlock more. It's as simple as that.

Being a Nintendo Wii game, the most important topic of discussion is control. How does Downhill Jam perform with the sideways-style Wii remote? Fair, at best. Downhill Jam isn't the hardest game on Wii to play (see GT Pro Series, Rampage: Total Destruction for that), but it also isn't very intuitive and takes far too many adjustments. For starters, all movement is controlled by tilting the remote left or right. This controls your turning, grind balancing, and spinning whilst airborne.
