Race as one ofPicture 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] Collapse

  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]
  2. 90
    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. This title feels as good as it looks thanks to its tight and responsive handling.
  5. 80
    Crashing through flaming glass hoops while pulling off death-defying aerial stunts at 98 mph makes it a hard game to turn off once you've perfected it, and a thoroughly addictive two-player mode will help you get there.
  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]

    Don't expect to be playing the reincarnation of SSX Tricky here folks, this one is hard. Extremely hard. To the point of insanity hard. ForDon't expect to be playing the reincarnation of SSX Tricky here folks, this one is hard. Extremely hard. To the point of insanity hard. For example, level one alone is quite a challenge to make it through. The AI is downright ruthless and it took me nearly five hours to make it past this track, and that's saying something as I'm usually the type who can fly through any game out there. The track design, and speed is amazing. The motion blur is very very cool, and the jumps pack quite a punch but most of them are near impossible to land with the precision needed to do so. Crash once, and you may as well forget it and start all over unless you are the master of hidden areas then maybe you have a shot if the opponent doesn't boost it past you at the last second of the Main Event. And yes, you must place 1st on the third race of each track to make it to the next level. ARRRGH! SSX Tricky was so easy, but come on now EA, did you really think that boosting the difficulty to insane level would make this that much better?! And no, you cannot change the difficulty here. FRUSTRATING. I just hope to master this one at some point before I throw the game out the window. Expand

    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.
