  • Summary: Freestyle Metal X unleashes anarchy with the freedom to do what you want, when you want. Be anti-establishment: break windows, run over people, ride where you normally can't ride...and get away with it. With an unlimited stunt system and a lawless energy, Freestyle Metal X dares riders to push the envelope with psychotic tricks in limitless, freestyle environments full of challenges and side events. Freestyle Metal X doesn't just cross the line, it eliminates it. A sizable dose of insanity will help you perform stunts on the tops of buildings, get air over the Vegas Strip, or shoot yourself out of a cannon onto the Marina streets. Be sick all over!

    Delivers a burly extreme experience that doesn’t feel like it was cloned.
  2. The trick system is overwhelming in scope and the difficulty is challenging yet rewarding once you master its nuances.
  3. Offers fun, fast, and wide-open game play in the vein of Tony Hawk, even with the disappointing multiplayer aspect.
  4. While this muck jam has expansive environments and great graphics, it also boasts as much originality as a Winger sing-along chorus. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun.
  5. Two things, besides the lack of a true multiplayer option, set Freestyle Metal X apart from other ex-games: the option to link its unlockable environments, so you can speed directly from the seaside into a snowstorm; and its soundtrack's handful of classic metal tunes from Twisted Sister, Mötley Crüe, Megadeth, and Motörhead.
  6. It’s got scantily clad women, hard rock music, dirt bikes, and lots of bloody crashes. It doesn’t break any new ground by any means, but FMX provides an entertaining extreme sports experience.
  7. I swear, I felt my IQ drop as I was playing the game, the sounds of brain cells popping melding nicely with the oh-so-bland cock-rock soundtrack that seems to be a requisite feature of sophomoric extreme sports tie-ins.
