  • 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.

    It's insane. This is the best dirtbike game avilible. It combines an Atv off road Fury feel with dirtbikes. I have been waiting so long for a game like this. Now i have 1. Now all need is an M16 and i can complete my regimen and arsenal to rule the world. Expand

    It was pretty badass, there's a good soundtrack, and awesome hangtime moves, but like downhill domination, it just kind of gets repetitive.

    I don't know what all these critics are talking about, this game is kickass. The soundtrack is awesome, there's posters of girls, all in all, this game kicks ass. Everything but it was kind of hard. Expand

    This is a funny kick-ass metal dirtbike game. You can create your own arenas do awesome tricks and do my personal event hill climbs. There are plenty of different characters and bikes for you to customize and make your own. The campaign is long and there are plenty of game modes. The cons of the game are some bugs spontaneous spastic controls and occasional freezing. Crashing into things in this game is also more fun then admitted I think. Expand
