Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 Ad Blurbs (PlayStation 2)
Featuring flatland tricks for the first time in a BMX video game, Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 drops players into eight enormous free-roaming, fully populated levels where they can perform thousands of tricks. There are multiple modes of play to experience: Road Trip, Single Session, and Free Ride, and a slew of multi-player games including the new Half-Pipe Hell and Treasure Hunt. The innovative Trick Tweaking feature lets gamers pull manuals, wall rides, tire-taps, grinds, and air tricks that can be "morphed" to create unique tricks on the fly while playing as Mat Hoffman himself, or one of ten other pros. Players can also build their own BMX course using the next generation Park Editor. Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 for Xbox includes an additional level and rider and will support user ripped sound tracks.

Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX 2 brings 11 pro riders to the Nintendo GameCube for a session across America. Get ready for a pedal-powered invasion when this game hits the road.
Mat Hoffman has been winning BMX championships since the late 1980s and has an injury list a mile long. Can you think of anyone better to star in Activision's tricked-out Pro BMX series? Now, he is bringing 10 of his BMX buddies along for the ride in this feature-filled extreme sports title. Each rider has his own strengths, weaknesses, and special tricks.
The riders include:
* Mat Hoffman
* Joe Kawalski
* Rick Thorne
* Mike Escamilla
* Simon Tabron
* Kevin Robinson
* Cory Nastazio
* Seth Kimbrough
* Nate Wessel
* Ruben Alcantara
* Day Smith
Rad Road Trip
In the career mode, dubbed Road Trip, you will take your favorite rider on a tour of eight cities. Like Activision's other extreme-sports games, these levels are more arcade than sim. Expect to encounter plenty of interactive obstacles like cars, pedestrians and amusement park rides. Important tools of the BMX trade, including half-pipes, rails, and pools, have been placed strategically for the best possible lines.
The levels are:
* Oklahoma City
* Las Vegas
* New Orleans
* Portland, Oregon
* Los Angeles
* Tiki Park, Hawaii
Before you can advance, you must meet certain objectives, including collecting items, reaching a high score, or performing a specific trick. Most of the objectives are standard fare for this genre, but there are a few wacky exceptions. For example, in Boston you are asked to save a pier from a giant squid, and in Portland you must explore a cave and find a way to bridge a river.
The trick system is top-notch. In the air you can bust out tricks like Rocket Air and Superman Seat Grab. You can grind almost anything you see and spice up your vert sessions by strutting your stall skills. The all-new flatland tricks, including the Lung Spin, Whiplash, and Steamroller, are a collective blast.
First-timers will wipe-out often, but once you get a handle on the control scheme you'll be pulling off CanCans and Front Flips with ease. You can also tweak your tricks for bonus points, but if you get too greedy prepare for a face-full of asphalt.
As you play through Road Trip you can unlock secret characters, bikes and outfits. There are also cool behind-the-scenes videos for each rider that show what life is like on the road for a pro star.
In Session mode, you can choose any available course and ride with a time limit. In Free Ride mode, there is no time limit, except when someone calls you to dinner.
The Trick Attack mode lets two players ride simultaneously via split-screen. The player with the most points when time runs out is the winner. Tag Mode is another split-screen competition. When you have not been tagged "it," you can pull tricks to lower your opponents' stats.
Graffiti War will be familiar if you have played Activision's other extreme sports games. In this mode the object is to mark ramps, rails and pipes by performing tricks on them. You can also steal points from your opponent by busting better tricks off their marked objects.
For the ultimate test of talent, up to four players can compete in HORSE mode. The first player sets the score and it's up to the other players to top it. If you can't set a new high score you get a letter. The game is over if you spell the word "HORSE."
Halfpipe Hell is a new mode that places each player at the bottom of a lava-filled cavern. You take turns trying to climb to the top by jumping from pipe to pipe. The challenge is to maintain your momentum as you climb. If you drop in the lava you have to start over from the bottom.
Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX never strays from the tried and true extreme-sports formula. The trick system is one of the best for a BMX game and the huge levels are fun to explore. Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX gets its staying power from the long list of secrets and multiplayer modes.
