Perform tricks at breakneck speeds while racing down steep terrain in Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam. The game features over 90 events held in eight environments, including Rio de Janeiro, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Edinburgh, Machu Picchu, and more. Play as Hawk himself, another of eight pre-made riders, or a boarder crafted from your imagination using the "Create-a-Skater." Each existing character has his or her own special tricks, and although character attributes cannot be upgraded, skateboard selection can affect such skills as speed, turning, and balance.
Skateboards come in all shapes, sizes, and attributes, and you'll have a choice of modern boards, old- school "fishtails," long boards, and even 1970s models. Some are available from the start but more must be unlocked through skilled play. Each of the game's events is focused on getting to the bottom of a hill as fast as possible, while performing sweet tricks and avoiding obstacles like cars, pedestrians, and buildings along the way. Environments feature a multitude of routes and hidden paths designed to offer a new downhill experience with every run. ~ Gracie Leach, All Game Guide
