For the first time, Tony Hawk’s Downhill Jam lets players experience the breakneck speed of downhill skateboard racing as they tear up the steepest terrains in the world while performing tricks and outmaneuvering opponents in locations such as the crowded streets of San Francisco and rocky terrain of Machu Picchu. “Gamers utilize an innovative and intuitive control system as they … compete in specific time-based challenges in one of three game play modes including race, trick and slalom,” Jr. Publicist Kelvin Liu of Activision Games told TDmonthly. This product received a spring 2007 Parents’ Choice Recommended Award. Launch date: October 24, 2006 (NDS); November 14, 2006 (Wii).
