- Sometimes leaves you wishing you could create your own BMXer and BMXSummary:
Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 for the Playstation 2 really isn't one of Activision's most popular games. Dave Mirra's Pro BMX is more for a BMX rider, but this is really the alternative.
The parks on this game are excellent, they are full of great obstacles like rails, quarter pipes and stairs etc. The last level is a bit of a fantasy world, but is still fun, that being said.
The controls are very good, even though they are button-mashers, they have an essence of Activision's more popular Tony Hawk's series. They really are excellent.

Square - Whip trick/Flip trick, accompanied with...
Nearly everything, the tricks are great, graphics are awesome for a game that early on PS2 but thats expected i suppose.
The levels in the game are good aswell its like an improvment on the Tony Hawk series from PS1 because they are bigger and have more gaps/grinds to complete.<br>The characters playable are great aswell a real likeness to the real people unlike in most other games where they look totally fake!
The Create A Park is good but leaves a lot to be desired in order to be good maybe in Pro BMX 3 if they release it, it will be better but my fingers are not crossed, nor are my toes because that hurts.
The levels are way to small for a PS2 platform game they need to be bigger have more space to do flatland tricks and more vert places and sunken half-pipes, also the Create A Park needs more features in it like Tony Hawks which had loads more IMO compared to Pro BMX2, also Create A Rider should have been added i think so we acn create "us" and play as "us" confused yet? More levels need to be in the game in order to have more fun with it aswell after doin all challenges and gaps and secrets etc. the levels get a tad boring!Summary:
Really good game graphics wise and they aredetailed too even when rotating fast, the blurring effect adds more realism maybe a bit to much realism to be honest.
Soundtrack is good to some catchy themes Iggy Pop, Run DMC and Crazy Town songs in there are my fave songs at the moment.
Value for money? well i brought this game first hand for about $15 (around $20) having said that it cost around $29.99 ($35) when it was brand new, if you dont want to spend £15 on this game look in some bargain shops or on other websites try www.amazon.co.uk or www.play.com or look ni the pre-owned section of your...
Matt Hoffman is one of the lesser-known riders compared to ol' Dave Mirra. And you'll probably realise a similair similarity between that half-fact and this game.
First load this up, and assuming you are interested in BMXing, you'll get all tickly inside. It's a crazy buzz, since if you've seen media screens or trailers then you'll get a hardtail, alright. But the truth is it's not entierley what you might be hoping. Basically, 'cos it's a little rough 'round the edges on your PS2 I'm afraid. Contradict graphics, if you will, and you'll see yourself 'serting another game. It's all so imperso...
-Smoothness of game
-Can be frustrating
-Long opening sequence
-You cant skitch
This game appealed to me mainly because it was made by Activision, the makers of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4. This game is smoothly run, the realism of the bike is outstanding, so many different ways to fall. The levels although not a large as I thought were very cunningly made, my favourite being the 'Las Vegas' level. The goals aren't the set the same way as THPS4, you start off in each level having to complete the 'amatuer' goals, after completing them you have to do the 'semi-pro' and 'pro' goals. These goals can get frustrating sometimes taking more patience and luck than skill. Also, th...
smooth play realistic funny ass vidsThe bad:
not enough tech moves well not enough moves periodSummary:
great lil sketchie here and there but good game some levels get really repetative and so on strange but sweet ending as i said needs more tricks but smaal add-on tech tricks would be better to. flatland runs ok little unreallistic sometimes great street levelsdecent choice of riders could use more less known(dave freimuth, Luc-e, chad kagy hell hes on hoffman and isn't in the game, brian foster,edwin delarosa, etc...)
Great new trick system, Awsome levels, hidden stuff, funny videos to unlock, (And TONS of them!!!)And ive never saw a BMX game that lets you do flatland tricks!!!The bad:
Well, its a little bit hard, but that makes if more fun!Summary:
This is THE BEST BMX GAME EVER!!! Like I said, its a little hard, (The way I like it.) And all the unlockables make up for it. Screw Flanders.
