  1. Questionable physics and a sloppy trick system still hinder the game from reaching its true potential.
  2. With its strong point on quantity, Dave Mirra’s Freestyle BMX 2 fails on the quality of rider control and in distinct graphics.
  3. 69
    Extreme games are mostly about control, and in that respect Mirra 2 feels unpolished and messy at all the wrong times.
  4. Plagued by many flaws in the control system and in collision detection.
  5. Despite having good structure, control, sound and graphics as well as a kickass level editor the game is just not as much fun as it could be because of the problems with control.
  6. The game is very pretty, and features some huge, fun levels, but it just wasn't enough to keep me playing.

    Sure, the controls may be horrible (curse the stupid Xbox controller), but there's one thing that made me love this game: the Wipeout 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. Full Review »
