  • Summary: 10-Time World Champion Dave Mirra is back in this sequel to the original hit game. Win enough respect from the other pro riders to get invited to Comps and embark on a ProQuest to be the top rider around - even better than the Miracle Boy himself.

  1. With a brand new trick system in place that allows you to perform over 1500 different tricks, as well as several large and expansive levels that will test your trick abilities, Dave Mirra sits on the top of the pile, holding the extreme sports title.
  2. The perfect version of this game, and the one that will be remembered as the best of the bunch.
  3. Visually the game is now crisp like snow as far as the eye can see.
  4. The trick system is easy but limited, a flaw that should not have happened. All in all this game is a good buy.
  5. Questionable physics and a sloppy trick system still hinder the game from reaching its true potential.
  6. 69
    Extreme games are mostly about control, and in that respect Mirra 2 feels unpolished and messy at all the wrong times.
  7. This is no Tony Hawk. [Jan 2002, p.96]

    They did a great job on this game and I'm starting to dispise people talking shit about the xbox controller. People are just used to the limited ps2 controller as I was when I bought my box. Expand

    Sure, the controls may be horrible (curse the stupid Xbox controller), but there's one thing that made me love this game: the Wipeout mode in multiplayer. Oh my god!!!!! This is the most creative and funny multiplayer mode ever! At least rent it to play Wipeout. Doing tricks is very hard, though. Expand

    I didn't really get into this game but what I did play was utter crap. I couldn't even control my character, which as the main part game really ruins it. THPS is by far better on every level. Expand
