  1. Lacking both the volatile charm and the compelling technical details of the series, it's little more than a halfhearted racing game with some guest appearances by characters and locations you've seen on TV.
  2. One smart idea Activision/Creat Studios did was making this game simple enough for anyone to pick up and play, even if the controls don't handle too well at times.
  3. While the bike selections are lengthy, the customization is shoddy at best, and the gameplay will have players reminiscing of "Grand Theft Auto" a bit too much. When you can play "GTA" why play this?
  4. Instead of a game that takes its inspiration from the show that it's based on, it appear to have been more inspired by "GTA" than anything else. And if you can imagine how bad a budget title of "GTA" would be, you can imagine how bad American Chopper is.
  5. A mish mash of already existing titles that seems to have been hastily thrown together to feed off the popularity of the television series. Playing this game for more than an hour is a truly challenging task.
  6. The racing is limited by choppy graphics and horrible controls. [Feb 2005, p.90]
