Summary: Me myself was waiting for a new tony hawk game when i found this clone of the tony hawk games. My first major problem is that you ABSOLUTELY NEED THE MANUAL. It asks you to do many tricks but will never tell you the button combos. Second thing you HAVE TO LOOK AT THE STATS. By this i mean do not pick before you look because you are most commonly going to pick mat hoffman whos skills are majorly unbalanced.
Summary: I owned this game back when Xbox Original was around and now I have it on 360! This is a super rare game to find and something that old looks so good now! Coming from a bmxing background, and having met and rode with some of the pro's that you can find in this game, it is realistic as a game could make it. For anyone who is old school and wants to play an extreme sports game, look no further! This game will keep you entertained for hours and hours!
Summary: Dont go into this game expecting Tony Hawks style gameplay (i did) because the two are completely different. Instead of just switching a skateboard model for a bike, a different contol system has been implemented. This is good because it brings a challenge to mastering a BMX, although it may take people who are very familiar with the THPS series a while to detach from the skateboard handling. One bad thing i would say is the music.
Summary: While not nearly as well known as Tony Hawk, Mat Hoffman brings his own unique excitement to the world of extreme sports. The same holds true for the star's video games as well; far fewer people have played Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX than Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, but that isn't to say the game isn't solid in its own right. In fact, it's pretty damn good.
Summary: Four playing modes make up the Mat Hoffman experience: Road Trip, Session, Free Ride and Multiplayer mode. Session is basically a single level ride that gives you a timer option (choose from two, five or ten minutes) and allows you to beat the best time before the timer runs out. Free Ride is a good way to get to know the controls and the various tricks before attempting the main mode, Road Trip.
Summary: This game is very very nice indeed. Couple of problems though would be that the tricks u do up in the air are worthless unless you either combo them on a manual or do a special. Thats kind of a bummer considiring I play tony hawk a bunch and i figured it would be a lot like that. It is also a very difficult game to start out with but once you have played it for a little bit it is a very fun game.
Summary: Okay, played it quite a bit more over the weekend, and it's still fun but the Xbox "Controller S" D-Pad is USELESS. I pretty much wish I had bought the PS2 version at this point due to the controller, inferior graphics or not. The D-Pad feels "dead" for lack of a better term, and in cases where you have to perform, say, a front flip which requires pressing something as simple as "down, down, X", it takes (no kidding) about 10-15 attempts before you get the 2 taps to...
Summary: ANYONE WHO HAS EVER PICKED UP A BIKE NEEDS TO PLAY THIS GAME!!!! this game is what you'd expect from activision awsome and fun all rolled into one. this game is great, in my opinion everyone should play this game bmx rider or not this is ... a sick game take it from me its sweet!
