Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2
28 October 2003
Excerpt: Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 is by far the most graphically advanced extreme sports games currently available. Sure, it may be the only extreme sports game on the next gen consoles right now, but only a fool would ignore it's graphical prowess. First off, the levels are huge.
Excerpt: Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 follows a string of games that try to take the sucessful formula of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series and apply it to other famous extreme sports stars. In this version of the formula, you can select one of a number of famous BMX bikers (Dave Mirra, Mike Laird, Ryan Nyquist...
Pros: Large environments, Fairly easy trick system, Good soundtrack
Cons: The camera, Control is suspect, Some objectives are hard to understand for those not versed in BMX jargon
Conclusion: Great level design, loads of extras, and the deep trick system all contribute to a game that gives you your money's worth. Even though it does have its frustrating flaws, Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2's strength are good enough to outshine the weaknesses.

Excerpt: on PSOne and, more impressively, on Dreamcast. Developed by Z-Axis the BMX game was astonishingly addictive despite some small problems. The sequel has just been released on the Playstation 2 and promises a whole lot more including more tricks, bigger levels and a lot more excitement.

Conclusion: Dommage que le manque de soin apporter à la réalisation ait été si dommageable à la qualité finale du soft. Le tout est de savoir ce que vaudra Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3. Car au prix où sont les jeux PS2, ce serait bête de se tromper dans ses choix.
