  1. The only major flaw in Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX is that the game is a touch on the easy side.
  2. A wickedly fun game despite some of its visual shortcomings, offering the right mix of killer BMX gameplay with X-Games attitude.
  3. Mirra stands as the best BMX game on the market.
  4. It's a great game for what it does, but not everyone's going to enjoy watching polygonal people do stupid stuff on a bike.
  5. 80
    It's fun to play, and it has that wonderfully irritable quality that keeps you coming back for just one more trick. Or two. Or four. Or, screw it, I'm not going out tonight, I'll just stay in and play Dave Mirra all night.
  6. 80
    Overall this game totally rocks. I loved it.
  7. This game managed to capture the feel of those rat-tailed days, without putting my older and fatter body at risk.
  8. With plenty of features, accessible yet challenging gameplay and a solid soundtrack, Freestyle BMX is just the thing to alleviate any prolonged skateboard withdrawal.
  9. While the midair stunts and crashes look painfully real, the game also seems to lack a convincing sensation of speed.
  10. 100
    A great action game, a competitive extreme sports title, and the best bike racing game ever made for the PlayStation.
  11. 80
    In no way flawless, but once you get the hang of it, it's a fun game.
  12. From its addictive ProQuest mode and dynamic skeletal animation system to its engaging licensed tunes, it's the proverbial "Tony Hawk" for freestyle BMX fans.
  13. There's no way around it: the game rocks.
  14. This is free roaming BMX action, complete with dirt tracks, half pipes, empty pools -- just the goods to fulfill any BMXers dream.
