    Delivers a burly extreme experience that doesn’t feel like it was cloned.
  2. This game plays well, and looks good. The musical score pops and drives this game very well. The action is well rendered and fast paced.
  3. The bikes handle brilliantly, with a real sense of momentum and a transfer of weight to the front and rear wheels under acceleration and braking.
  4. The trick system is overwhelming in scope and the difficulty is challenging yet rewarding once you master its nuances.
  5. The game itself, while not deep, does allow a pretty solid amount of playing time to accomplish all the goals on the expansive levels.
  6. The greatest feature of the game is that once unlocked, you can apparently drive from one end of the first level all the way to the end of the last level, as they’re all connected portions of one large city, which the designers claim loads seamlessly.
  7. Offers fun, fast, and wide-open game play in the vein of Tony Hawk, even with the disappointing multiplayer aspect.
  8. 76
    It's wide-open, fun and has a good sense of humor, to boot. Besides, who can resist the allure of Motley Crue, Megadeth and Motorhead contributing heavily to the soundtrack?

    The animation is sweet, depth of faces and places deep like Def Poetry, the play mechanics are superb and the controls are nicely laid. [July 2003, p.79]

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. Full Review »
