The game is a lot of fun to play ¿ it's just not incredibly deep. But what's been done here is excellent, offering a ton of moves and tricks in its simple perspective and complex control structure. The game's high learning curve and occasionally confusing level structure hurt the overall rating, but throwing some money towards the purchase of Road Champs BXS wouldn't be a bad move at all.
Aside from difficult controls, slow play, and game difficulty, Road Champs: BXS Stunt Biking is great. It looks great and is fun to play. Mechanically, the tricks are difficult to perform and due to the slowness of gameplay, it's even more difficult. With a little simpler move list and a little faster game speed, Road Champs: BXS Stunt Biking would be a definite 'Bring It On!'.

Well, well, well – I guess the Game Boy Color can handle this type of game. After two disappointing Tony Hawk GBC titles, Activision tapped Hot Gen to create Road Champs, a freestyle BMX game that provides a long and fairly complex gameplay experience. With over 50 tricks at your disposal, you’ll find yourself losing some serious hours just learning all there is to do in this game. A warning – mastering all the tricks is a difficult task. In order to force you to learn everything Road Champs has to offer, Hot Gen implemented an extremely long, six-level Training mode that you must complete before you can even begin the Career mode. After a while, this began to test my patience, but in the end I was glad for all the training I had received. Brief moments of frustration aside, Road Champs is a fine game.
If there is any real drawback to Road Champs BXS Stunt Biking (besides the fact that it doesn't break any new ground), it's that the game is a bit light in the way of overall variety. The game's three modes - even though each offers different locales and tasks - feel too much alike. Furthermore, 64 stages may seem like a lot - but once you're done, you're done. And quite possibly in three hours or less. Despite this one major flaw, however, it's a darn good ride while it lasts.

Road Champs' gameplay is deep and anal. As appealing as that may sound to some of you, I suggest MTV Sports BMX instead. This game's pretty, but too high-maintenance.
