  1. The only title on the PlayStation that can keep me in front of my television for 12+ hours straight!
  2. 55
    Maximum Remix adds new frills, in fact quite a lot of them -- new levels, new music, new tricks, and new stat-tracking categories -- but it doesn't change anything about the game on a fundamental level.
  3. Exactly a remix. We are scoring the game the same as the new additions do not change the game's overall appeal. Both titles are equally well done but of course if you never played the first, then skip it and hit this one up.
  4. A terrific PlayStation title. It is complicated, features solid graphics, high-flying player-controlled action and outstanding soundtrack.
  5. Electronic Gaming Monthly
    The game’s graphics seem tighter and less warpy than before, all making this a superior game to its predecessor. [Aug 2001, p.112]
  6. If you liked the first one and are bored its levels, this game is perfect for you. If you never got a chance to play the first one and want a solid trick-based game for the PSX this, too, is a great choice.
  7. What makes this game lose a little bit of its luster are the blurry graphics and the tendency to bog down in places.
  8. Maximum Remix jacks up the engine and slides a smattering of new levels and challenges in, but the ugly graphical glitches and continuingly laughable physics overshadow any of the other improvements made to the game.
  9. 80
    Even though a better BMX game—"Mat Hoffman’s Pro BMX"—has been released since the first Dave Mirra, the core gameplay of Mirra hasn’t been much improved, just expanded.
  10. It’s a repackaged version of the original. A few new levels aren’t enough to give this game a proper fun factor score – if you’ve played before, you’ll be disappointed.
  11. It’s more of a half-assed sequel to an excellent game that only fans desperately in need of more Dave Mirra need to check out.
