  1. Jam may lack the luster and polish of the Wii launch title, but this is a game that does a good job fitting the graphics and sound to play style and provides a nice range of game modes.
  2. For me, I loved the music, loved the visual style (despite the last-gen graphics), and really got into mastering all the ins and outs of the enormous tracks.
  3. I feel that fans of the original two Tony Hawk titles and the SSX series will probably enjoy Downhill Jam quite a bit. It takes the series to a territory that it should’ve been at quite some time ago.
  4. On Wii, Downhill Jam was a great party game. On the PS2, it’s more like "SSX"-Lite. The game is still fun but if you have a choice get the undoubtedly superior Wii version.
