  • Summary: Rearing its head for the first time on the PS2, the latest incarnation of DMFB features eight levels ("4x bigger than before") in vert, dirt, street, and park riding, with ten multiplayer games and a roster of pros including the usual suspects: Ryan, Rick, and Dave himself.

  1. The perfect alternative to those wussy slow skateboarding games, where wrecks only break your bones in two places instead of four.
  2. By far the most fun game I have played on the PS2.
  3. Bizarre, energetic, and vibrant.
  4. There are over 1500 different tricks possible in this game, and it never gets boring trying to find every one. [Dec 2001, p.100]
  5. Unfortunately, the controls have some major issues, which is one of the major downfalls of the game. To say the least, they aren't very responsive or accurate.
  6. Isn’t quite as fresh as the original was a year ago, but Z-Axis has really stepped up for the PS2 sequel in all areas, and we eagerly anticipate what they’ll have ready for the third installment.
  7. The control issues I've been griping about since the original came out have been remedied. [Nov 2001, p.153]

    Quite a fun game to play. Bringing down the score is the frustrating faults that the game has. The levels are nice tho, a good game that will last.
