Reviewed: Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam (Nintendo DS)

Final Breakdown


Too-small maps and unreactive controls don't help this game.


 They squeezed quite a bit out of the DS, but ultimately, Downhill Jam just disappoints compared to what gamers are used to in a Hawk title.

Sound and Music:

Very few spoken tracks, a lackluster music soundtrack, and an annoying "your friend doesn't have a chance" taunt when you fail a challenge... ugh.


Oh yeah, it's difficult all right. Painfully so.

Controls and Interface:

Moving the special moves to the touch pad sounds like a good idea, but it hurts to have to let go of the other buttons to reach those new "special" buttons.


Stick with Hawk on the consoles; the Wii version of this title will probably be completely different.
