Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam review

  • Exclusive Hot Lava grindathon
  • Good sense of speed and air
  • Soundtrack kicks, as always
  • Sloppy gameplay
  • Load times almost equal to gameplay
  • Slow down in framerate

Tony Hawk Downhill Jam is still essentially a decent game, albeit somewhat stripped of its original essence. Whether you consider motion-sensor controls a revolution or simply a novelty, their absence makes for a much more shallow experience. As a whole, the game feels more akin to an overblown supplemental mode that should've been included with Project 8, rather than a stand-alone edition to the Tony Hawk saga.
