    This is one of my favorite PS2 games I own. It's the first BMX game for the console, and the best out of them. One of the only complaints I have about this game is that hitting X repeatedly to sprint on the BMX nearly ruined the button. Sprinting hurts your thumb as well. But, there are a slew of careers, riders, tracks, and overall, fun.

    The best game on ps2 . Only one problem with spilt screen frame drops when you add bots. Very cheap and easy to find. I recommend it to any ps2 owner !!!

    An absolute blast. I love this game. It is like SSX, but faster and with better combat during riding. When you are flying along smoothly and then suddenly do a face plant into a rock you never saw, you feel the pain. Worth the money.

    This game is totally supreme! I give it a 9.5 because although the game is G.O.D. the music selection could have been a little better.

    As a local north shore rider , the game is great , the feeling as you hukkk off jumps in the game is the same as you do it for real . Good game to play when you just can't get out and do the real thing. Just wish more north shore style was in the game .

    Graphics suffer a tad but overall this game is quite innovative.

    A really good game, Technically is precious, and the progression is real, because you feel like you're in a good way. Is an old school game that you would have fun time with.

    Another major complaint I have about the control that bears mentioning is that the machinations one must go through to flip or spin are extremely annoying at best.
  2. With up to four players racing together, Downhill Domination offers plenty of adrenalin- pumping action and if you are looking for a different and rewarding racer then this is one mountain worth climbing.
  3. Feels like pretty standard fare for the extreme sports genre, although it moves at an unusually high speed.
