The arts of skateboarding, snowboarding and BMX cycling are usually dominated by the Americans. Therefore, any game releases based upon such events usually come from the States, and Dave Mirra’s BMX was no exception. But the game proved so successful, both in America and Europe, that a pseudo sequel was released. So without further ado, we give you Dave Mirra’s Maximum Remix.

As a stunt BMX game, Dave Mirra doesn’t feature racetracks as such, but courses in which the rider can show off to his gaming friends by performing numerous tricks. The game features a fully comprehensive list of BMX manoeuvres that can be executed by using directional and button combinations. The harder the trick, the harder the move is to pull off. The game’s environments feature several different locations, including a fairground and circus, but all feature hundreds of bumps, ramps and rails to perform the tricks on, and that’s the most important thing. Each course has been designed so that tricks can be combined by moving straight onto another section of the course. If you ride well, your game will be fluid and spectacular. If your final score is sufficient, further tracks, riders and bikes will make themselves available for play.

When the features of this game are put together in the final product, Dave Mirra’s BMX Remix shows its true potential. It a great game that doesn’t require too much from the player and ultimately, it’s a pleasure to play.
