Downhill Jam demo

Monday 7 August 2006
We've managed to lay our hands on a demonstration of Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam that shows just how the Wii skater will handle with the machine's motion-sensing controller. You can see the remote-tilting action for yourself by clicking the movies tab above.

The game - which has more in common with SSX than previous Tony Hawk's outings - features a series of downhill races set in locations spread across the globe and control of the skater is achieved using Wii's wizzy wand remote.

The demo neatly shows how this works and - reassuringly - indicates that the on-screen action is very responsive to the motion of the controller, allowing for tight turns and power slides.
