Summary: this was a very fun game back in the day. trying to play it now reminds me how difficult the game mechanics were. its very hard to be GREAT at this game but that doesnt keep it from being fun. much better than the first game in this series.
Summary: I ordered this game because I love B.M.X freestyle! You can choose many different things to do with parks that YOU get to create! Choose from over 10 different Pro B.M.X champs and pull off some of the sickest tricks you can imagine. I got this for my Birthday, and let me tell you that turning 28 hasn't stopped me from wanting to grind a rail, pull off some sick park tricks ..or get mad air when hitting the half-pipes in a one on one against Matt Hoffman?
Summary: (40+ year old) I have spent many hours playing this game alone and with my kids. There are many multiplayer game types that keep it interesting for different player skill levels in multiplayer. One that an expert can play with a novice (little daughter) is getting points for worst crash - which is fun. Soundtrack has great songs could use a few more for variety but no huge deal.
Summary: First off i'd like to point out to you that i am a pro bmxer who takes the sport seriously, meaning i would then take this game seriously aswell. When Dave Mirra Freestyle Bmx came out for playstation, i can remember all the hot gossip it got and how great it was for its time, and dare i say better then the tony hawks series, however with this game released today it just doesn't seem to be as good for its time as much as the original was.
A great disappointment from the makers of Dave Mirra...

Summary: I bought this game expecting another great BMX hit from the makers of the original Dave Mirra for ps1. Good god was I wrong. This game is probably one of the worst sports games I have EVER played. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the somewhat enterataing levels, the funny as hell bails when you bail your bike mid-air, and the medeocre soundtrack. Graphics - God aweful. Sketchy and contorted to look like a 5 year old drew them with the crayon in his mouth.
Summary: A little less than a year ago, Acclaim was the first to stake out BMX territory on the PlayStation with Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX. Nine months later, a "remixed" version of the game was released, containing new levels and a smoothed-out trick system. Now, Acclaim and Z-Axis have claimed the first PlayStation 2 BMX game with Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2.
Summary: Dave Mirra BMX 2 is a hard game. I would rent it and get used to it before you buy (especially if you have played Tony Hawks). This game was the first game I got when I bout my ps2 and I still havent gotten to the last level. It is a veeeerrrryyy long game unless you rock at it which I don't. It only has eight levels but they are really hard. I got to one point where I thought it impossible to go on but I did.
Summary: While the original Dave Mirra BMX for the PS1 and Dreamcast wasn't much to look at, Acclaim and Z-Axis managed to make some big improvements here and there to make this sequel stand out on it's own, for the most part. Graphicly speaking the game is superb, except for a few glitches here and there.
