  1. Would have failed as a traditional racing game, since the racing itself is rather boring and uninspired. The limited trick list and lack of common features, such as a track editor and create-a-rider mode, also detract from the game.
  2. CNET Gamecenter
    Even though Freestyle Motorcross's outlandish trick selection and arcade-style flair make it somewhat entertaining, the simplistic gameplay, poor graphics, and limited selection of riders simply don't make it compelling enough to belong in your library.
  3. It has plenty of good stuff going for it, but a long list of problems keeps it from being anything other than merely decent.
  4. McGrath vs. Pastrana stutters along like Gomer Pyle on amphetamines. The frame rates are so poor that the entire game has a jerky feel to it, and the overall package comes off as erratic.
  5. 30
    The game is ugly, it's a pain in the ass to play, it has horrible audio and is a completely nauseating experience.
  6. Daily Radar
    Ugly visuals and a much uglier framerate fail to bolster a lackluster stunt system that's neither visceral nor deep.
  7. Better than bad is sometimes still pretty bad, and that's the case here -- though at least the frame rate is not so piss-poor as to be completely unplayable.

    This game is JUNK! The horrible graphics, bad controls and unrealistic crashes/wipeout DON'T mix. There is also a small selection of characters.
