looks pretty sweet man, I may just have to rent it. Although it is from Acclaim, and I haven't like an acclaim game since Maximum Carnage for the Genesis.

Edit: N/M, Dave Mirra 2 was pretty awesome as well.

im a bit shakey aoubt getting this game. The first game was worse than mutant poo. But the reason i still concider is maybe for once acclaim learned from there mistakes and general waste of money. Also, the games grafix do look nice. Most importantly, it has KTM :D I wait for reviews and pray for an OXM demo...but its almost inevitable that ill pick this up
