One of the first games due out on Nintendo's brand-new Wii (wee) console is Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam. Gamers get to enjoy a different type of Tony Hawk game where grinding on rails and doing tricks is just part of the action. In Downhill Jam, the action is adrenaline-pumping racing through crowded streets, breaking objects, smacking your opponents, all while pulling off amped-up tricks from beginning to end.

The revolutionary new Wii remote controller uses gyroscopic movements to control the on-screen action. Turning the remote either right or left turns your onscreen rider, and using the buttons on the remote will control the other movements and actions of your player. Downhill Jam gives you the option to play as Tony Hawk or one of eight other original characters. To give your character even more personalization, jump into the Create-A-Skater mode to tweak your character until it's perfect, then go on to choose from a nice selection of skateboards. Each one is unique with different attributes that affect gameplay, so pick wisely.

With all the details aside, the real star of the game is the fast, bad-ass racing. Downhill Jam is no exaggeration as you hurtle down the steepest terrains battling other racers for that number one slot. This is arcade-style racing so don't expect a real-world sim here, it's all about jumping and grinding over obstacles to pull off big-air tricks to gain that all-important boost. Grab a friend to race head-to-head in Race, Attack, Trick or Slalom mode and show off what you know. Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam is a great way to kick off the new Wii console.
