  • Summary: Picture flying through rugged terrain with massive jumps at more than 70 mph, hitting a 40-foot jump at the ledge of a 200-foot cliff, and pulling off a Backflip, a Tsunami and a 360 all before you land. If you've got the guts to get this done, then Freekstyle is for you! Race as one of eight different riders in any one of the nine awesome venues and get major air as you show off some of the tightest tricks possible. Get off the beaten path as you find hidden routes, and piece together combo moves that let you rack up the points and the props. If you're into high-flying, hard-charging Freeky motocross action, then rev it up and show the world your own Freekstyle! [Electronic Arts] Expand

  1. With so much to do and unlock, great characters, killer music, and truly sick graphics, it's hard to find fault in freekstyle. [July 2002, p.78]

    You’ll be given the pleasure of tricking and tearing your way through some of the most crazy and freakish settings that the sick minds at EA Sports BIG could conjure up in their conspicuously concealed laboratories.
  3. Essentially "SSX" on dirt with a couple of obvious and notable gameplay differences, plus more adrenaline and attitude.
  4. More challenge than "Sled Storm," but more frustrating too...I still had a blast. [August 2002, p.108]
  5. Points off for the annoying sound package and the use of cheap ‘rubber band’ CPU A.I. to keep the races competitive... A rewarding experience. Best EA Big title to date, hands down.
  6. A fun, difficult racer deeply entrenched in the SSX vein. It does what it does well, though it's not much of a departure.
  7. If you like "SSX," you won't like Freekstyle - don't be fooled by superficially-appealing first impressions. [PSM2]

    This game rules. Most people dont like it cuz its not as easy as ssx. This one is for the best video gamers who want to be tested to thier full. This game is so great if you get good enough. I love the tricks and way of unlocking characters. Tied for best ea game with NBA street vol. 2. I want a freekstyle 2. Expand

    Really fun game until the tracks begin to repeat themselves over and over, after the third time I was extremely bored. Worth buying if you like free-style. Cool moves! Expand

    I loved SSX, but this just stinks. Poor graphics, annoying physics and little sense of speed.

    No matter how many times I try to enjoy this game, I fail. I am a big EA fan, but I still can't stand Freekstyle.
