  1. Damn! Freekstyle should come packed with a nut cup, because it gave me one of the hardest kicks to the nuggets I've had in a long time. [Sept 2002, p.85]
  2. Like the stunts, the sound and graphics are lick (the fire effects are excellent), and the polished presentation is perfect for fans of "SSX Tricky" and other mad, mondo stunt games. [Sept 2002, p.161]

    Freekstyle is very playable using the GameCube controller, so you're not taken out of the game world with frustration.
  4. 81
    The kind of game that truly rewards skillful play, and like "SSX" before it, is a true joy to play once you've attained full mastery of the intricate controls.
  5. This title feels as good as it looks thanks to its tight and responsive handling.
  6. It's motocross to the extreme. There is nothing out there like this, except for "SSX Tricky," and this is better than Tricky. If you like Tricky, you'll love Freekstyle.
  7. 80
    Freekstyle is kept from achieving the classic status of Tricky, however, by some heinous rubber-band A.I.
  8. Offers the same fast-paced, high-flying racing action that the PS2 version does, retaining the original version's intense level of difficulty and its two-player modes.
  9. The main problem lies in the fact that this is really nothing more than a re-done "SSX Tricky."
  10. It’s little more than an adrenalin-injected version of Excitebike, but should satisfy the thirst of would-be MotoXers without having to endure the pain of a piercing or tattoo.

    I think I'm starting to (yawn) want to get my "freek" on somewhere else. [Sept 2002, p.44]

    It's an awesome game that's almost completely ruined by poorly developed computer AI. If you're winning they stay on your tail It's an awesome game that's almost completely ruined by poorly developed computer AI. If you're winning they stay on your tail no matter what. If you're losing, they wait for you to catch up. It's completely unrewarding. Full Review »

    Is fun, but the curcuit racing takes a while.
