A disappointing follow-up to the quirky rival of Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX .

User Rating: 4.5 | Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 GC
This wasn't a very impressive upgrade for the great PlayStation BMXer. A lot of elements in this sequel made gameplay more of a chore than anything else.

To start off, levels were incredibly big. I'm sure many of you may think this could be a good thing, but with the timer ticking away even as you explore, it can seem very unfair unlike the wonders of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 where time is strictly only necessary for the challenges and the rest of the time, it's like a infinite roam around each level.

I did give this game a fair chance, but honest to God, It Has No Mercy! Level 1 was a pain and things weren't going to get any easier. The complications of the physics in the game made Level 2 feel like being lost in a labyrinth of impossibility. It is very hard for anyone to accomplish the "Break The 4 Windows" task as you can't jump high enough anyway. The controls can be a more than a handful too. Sometimes the Grind button simply won't respond no matter how much you prompt it.

This definately isn't the kind of game you should own. In fact, renting it wouldn't be an improved option, it's that bad! It's best you check out the PlayStation original before even considering this abomination of a sequel. Don't be discouraged by Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2! Get Freestyle BMX 1!!!
