I'm not one for sports games, racing games, or war games, but this game won me over back in the day. I personally never owned it until now. All my friends back in the early 2000's owned this game on Playstation 2 and I grew to love it for it's soundtrack first and then it's game play. The reason I bought the game cube version was due to the extra level over the Playstation 2 version but I like the Playstation 2 controller so much more over the game cubes so for that reason i'll be buying the Playstation 2 version soon and i'll just use a code to unlock that stage that's only on the game cube version over playing through the whole game with that gamecube controller.
This game is the highly anticipated version of Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX2 for GameCube. I have played this game on both systems and find the GameCube version to be a more vivid and easier to control game. However, it is a game that needs work! Its soundtrack, although with some great hits, needs work in a variety of areas- the songs, unless you painstakingly select them, repeat over and over again meaning that if I start playing a game with one song, it will continue to play until I have selected otherwise. Another weakness- the game has no sense of barriers (ie walls, poles, grinding rails.) Sometimes, I am able to ride through a pole, however, on other occasions, on that same pole, my rider gets knocked down. Also, and this is the worst part of the game, if you are riding and you bump into a wall, your rider immedialey gets knocked into reverse, this causes a short, but infuriating delay as your rider evetually pulls himself out of reverse. Other times, the screen...
Fun bit of nostalgia. Mechanics aren't the best but the game is great in all the right ways.
