  1. The best motorcycle racing game on the system. I am very impressed with just about every aspect of the game. It is tough but not insanely tough.
  2. One of the few PSX racers worth paying top dollar for these days if you love the sport (and don't have access to a Nintendo 64).
  3. Acclaim's "Freestyle Motocross: McGrath vs. Pastrana" has a better freestyle mode, but the racing in CM2K1 is a lot more exciting and if I wanted to do spectacular tricks and stunts I'd just play "Dave Mirra" or "Tony Hawk 2."
  4. A solid game that's fun to watch, but it's no longer the only game in town.
  5. With one nagging exception, there's really pretty little wrong with the game, but it doesn't exactly push any boundaries either.
  6. A diluted product that isn't excellent in any regard...which, though it has its moments, is how Championship Motocross 2001 ends up feeling.
  7. 64
    Carmichael's racing engine is smooth and playable, but very basic, and the schizophrenic difficulty level frequently kills the game right when you're in a good groove.
