Description

Slightly unusual for a tricks/stunt game, BMX XXX adds a twist to its genre by employing themes involving foul language, nudity and toilet humour.

The "Hardcore Tour" mode has you playing the levels, pulling off tricks and completing goals to unlock things such as new levels or stripper videos. The goals are of the odd variety, including things like collecting yellow snow for an icecream man, or gathering empty cans for a homeless guy. Also have to watch out for a health bar which accounts for your injuries and can make you start over levels if you run out of it.

Do well enough in the game and you unlock a topless mode, where the riders are all.. well..

There's also a 'create-a-ride' mode, and a two player split screen option, with different games of its own. The game plays on Acclaim's own Dave Mirra series' engine.

Trivia

Australia

BMX XXX was originally banned in Australia on October 16, 2002. However, a modified version was passed with a MA15+ rating. One feature that was removed in the censored version is the option of creating a naked female rider.

Meanwhile, the kiwis decided to make a joke of Australia's censorship system by adding a "BANNED IN AUSTRALIA" sticker somewhere on the box.

Dave Mirra

In 2003, Dave Mirra launched a lawsuit against Acclaim over this game, claiming they had used the "Dave Mirra brand" in it's promotions and advertising. The lawsuit was settled amicably out of court.

Indeed, Dave Mirra had appeared as a character in very early information for this game, prior to it's release.

PlayStation 2 version

The PlayStation 2 version has most of the actual photos of topless women censored, though polygonal nudity remains. Sony claimed:
We didn't feel that the topless nudity fundamentally added to the gameplay experience, and it presented in issue with regard to our global platform strategy and our guidelines. And because we have invested so much, and have built in so much equity to our system, we feel we need to protect that.
