STAFF REVIEW of Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 (Xbox)

Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 Box art Dave Mirra is currently one of BMX freestyle champions on the planet. The man is up there with Tony Hawk, Matt Hoffman and Ricky Carmichael, and this game falls into that category. For those that love high flying stunt action from titles like Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2x, MX 2002 and Amped then you?ll love Dave Mirra Pro BMX 2. I?m a big fan of these sort of games, thus, when it comes to reviewing them, I?m a little more picky than your average "joe". Dave Mirra 2 has great overall package to keep you coming back for more! This game will make an excellent addition to your "Extreme" collection of games. If you played Dave Mirra 1 for the Dreamcast, the Xbox version is 20 times better, trust me!

I had piles of fun checking out all the cool tricks you can and couldn?t pull off in this game. I tried Can-cans, backflips, flairs and a pile more. A person can spend many hours checking out every inch on this game, but you can still have fun just jumping in. This game is hard to master; I played and played to unlock the other levels with no success. It is tough to unlock the other levels, but what the hell, that are why we have cheat codes. The controls are easy to get quickly familiar with, making the game fun. Unlike some other titles on other consoles, games of this type could be a major pain. This game does not ask you to include your toes for button pressing. Simple and nice.

The visual are stunning! You can tell that extra TLC has been taken to bring this title to the Xbox. It almost has a Tony Hawk 2x feel to it. The look of the buildings, the cars, the grass, the bikes and the characters are truly well done. On the first level, you can actually notice the blades of grass. WOW! This is not just another cheap PS2 port. Nice going Acclaim!

The soundtrack has been carefully hand picked with the sounds of the coolest grunge bands. I mean the music selection fits the style of the game; it does an excellent job getting you in the mood the bust some sick air. Sound effects are good, what more do you want? (The sound of a person on a bicycle and a few cars and birds) Hmmm?but all is good in this department. Overall the sounds rock.

Easier way to unlock the other levels. Or maybe it's just me.

Overall: 8.0 / 10
Gameplay: 8.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 8.0 / 10
