  1. This is by far the most impressive extreme sports game that we have played on the GBA. It truly is a remarkable piece of handheld programming.
  2. One of the most shockingly good GBA games I’ve played all year.
  3. Replay doesn’t get any better than this… 5 Pro bikers and Create-a-character with this type of game make replay value as high as can be.
  4. The game just feels like a BMX video game on a handheld system ought to feel--like a miniaturized version of its console cousin without any compromises or cutbacks.
  5. Game Informer
    This is the best you'll see in this generation of handheld hardware. [Mar 2003, p.92]
  6. A good little portable trick riding game that really needs to lose its overly constraining clock.
  7. 80
    It's actually a lot of fun once you get over a few of the quirks that surface during its gameplay, like its wonky collision detection during grinds and item pick-ups.
  8. It will astound even the most jaded gamer with its seemingly endless list of improvements.
  9. Nintendo Power
    The action is fast and the fun factor is high. [Mar 2003, p.137]
  10. Pocket Games
    Surprisingly polished. [Spring 2003, p.30]
  11. 70
    The game sports large creative levels, a unique trick upgrading system, and a killer sound, but whatever innovations the game makes are easily overshadowed by the frustrating controls and the return of the timed run.
  12. Fun if you're not sick of doing this over and over and over in the previous games. It's a great presentation, but individual mileage may vary.
  13. Decent. Well thought out. Done before.
  14. 80
    Nothing new, but it's fluid and fun, with enough freedom and detail to satisfy newcomers and pros alike.
  15. Cheat Code Central
    Just a good-old fashioned BMX game in the spirit of Tony Hawk. There are no hookers, topless dancers or fornicating dogs.

    Very good game! Bricks to decade are very hard to find, but it isn't really game for one night.
