Excerpt: While the soundtrack may put the Psycho in this freestyle motorcycle title, the X-factor is an in-depth trick gameplay/trick system. The game style is introduced via tutorials that are presented by Cindy, the reason you’re out there risking your neck.
Excerpt: It can't be said often enough: the videogame industry has become bleached of originality. Every month, titles are released that are either mechanically or conceptually near-identical to titles that are already out there. And they keep getting made because they make money. I don't understand it.
Excerpt: Welcome to the engine roaring, blood-filled, and bikini poster world of Freestyle Metal X . The graphics are quite respectable in Freestyle Metal X , but much of it seems a little washed out. Maybe Sports Asylum was consciously going for this effect, but I didn't care for it.
Conclusion: The King of the Hill mode pits you against the clock to see how fast you can make it up a series of steep hills. It may sound like a very dull idea, but it turns out to be very fun and challenging.
Excerpt: Freestyle MetalX is a fast paced dirt bike stunt game, where you choose a rider, bike, game type, and map. There's 9 huge levels, a plethora of riders, customizable bikes and bike parts, a TON of unlockable goodies and videos. All that sounds great on the box, but is it actually a good game?
Conclusion: Freestyle Metal X ist trotz innovativer Ideen und eigentlich gelungenem Konzept nichts besonderes geworden. Schade, doch Grafik, ein teils schwammiges Gameplay und dadurch gegen Ende ein zu hoher Schwierigkeitsgrad missfallen.
