The original Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX, which originally released for PlayStation, PC, and Dreamcast, was a serviceable game, if you weren't going to demand so much of it in comparison to the Tony Hawk series, but it wasn't worth a farthing as a simulation of freestyle BMX. A game where Cory Nastazio cannot do a tabletop is not doing justice to the sport. Activision obviously recognized the game's shortcomings and enlisted Rainbow Studios to develop the sequel, resulting in a game that is entirely new in every way -- the technology, animation, and game mechanics are all new, with the only holdover being the various famous names. But now, the problems have been reversed, somewhat. This is a killer BMX sim, but it may not as much fun to play as you think.
