BMX XXX doesn’t make new leaps and bounds for future BMX games, but it is enjoyable. There isn’t a whole lot of modes, but there is enough. The Hardcore Mode (Career mode) has enough missions to keep you busy for quite a while. It’s understandable why AKA Acclaim and Z-Axis made BMX XXX the way they did, ‘action-sports’ are starting to look too similar. I’m pretty sure you won’t confuse this game with other BMX games. The change of pace is much appreciated. Acclaim is pushing the ESRB ratings to the limit.

Not many genres could support a game like this. The odds are NHL XXX wouldn't be a big seller. The prospect of a semi-nude Chris Chelios just doesn't move product. Similarly, few RPG gamers would be willing to trade in their chainmail breastplate and leggings for a bra and panties as they prepared to scrap with a gang of orcs. BMX XXX works because it's a decent game first and a twisted novelty second. If seeing jiggling high-poly breasts isn't for you, fine. But you will be missing out on a very playable and fun title. As for me, I have no problem with video game nudity. In fact, I played some 73 hours of Final Fantasy X in nothing but a cowboy hat.

While the subject matter may be difficult for some moms out there, and the graphics are not what you are accustomed to with the Xbox, I found the game a lot of fun. Xbox has brought us a new generation of video game consoles, and now the game makers are doing the same, stepping it up a notch. With the average age of a console gamer today, adult games have arrived and are here to stay. The game is not for everyone out there, but personally I did enjoy it!

Game Chronicles
If you are simply looking for a BMX game full of stunts and interesting levels then BMX XXX delivers, but so do titles like Gravity Games Bike and the new Toxic Grind game that combines BMX racing and stunts with futuristic adventure elements. BMX XXX offers a bit of adult flair, naughty humor, and enough nudity to stir up a good controversy, but does little to advance the genre or create an exceptional BMX experience.

Sous tout le bretzel se trouve un jeu plutôt marrant qui tranche, sur la forme en tout cas, avec ce que l'on a l'habitude de voir. Le fond, lui, reste tout à fait similaire aux autres productions du genre avec défis et compétitions à terminer pour avancer dans les niveaux.

BMX XXX may not be pimping the most attractive set of graphics on the extreme sports corner, but once inside, the game it’s satisfying nonetheless. This is largely due to the handful of characters with well-designed personalities. Talking to them in the first level will incite a timed challenge such as riding whores back to their whore house, dognapping the pimp’s poodle, helping a fireman get his hose up, and so on. The outrageous nature provides a shocking experience each time despite the fact that many of the goals are relatively alike from level to level. BMX XXX really shines in this area since it delivers what it promises and sets itself apart from traditional BMX games.

BMX XXX didn't live up to my expectation because, like many people, I was expecting an evolution of the Mirra franchise with the welcome addition of potty mouth humor and nude women. The women and humor are there, but the evolution just isn't. I think BMX XXX got caught up in a different kind of identity crisis than we've seen before. But looking at it for what it is, either the game needed to have more XXX or a more refined BMX side, but leaving it caught up in the middle where it is now won't be very satisfying for hardcore gamers. Whether or not XXX is a turning point for mature-themed videogames remains to be seen but popularity is a key element for controversy and XXX has plenty of spotlight on it.

From the random bugs and collision problems to some joke missions that have no punch line, the whole game feels rushed and unfinished. Despite the promise of bawdy and uncensored content in the Xbox version, the videos and humor presented are quite a few steps below what adults would call "naughty". Less than half of the stripper footage has actual stripping, which is just plain wrong considering how hard it is to unlock these things. With a tighter game engine and less arcane level goals, BMX XXX could have been something more than a gimmick.

The Next Level
Ultimately, fans of the Dave Mirra BMX series will probably judge BMX XXX to be a very disappointing title that tried far too hard to gain hype and sales through controversial content rather focusing on the gameplay. While I don’t doubt Acclaim will try for a sequel, here’s hoping that they cut back on the unnecessary (and often times annoying) content and create a good companion to Aggressive Inline.

Like most games that shoot for comedy, BMX XXX isn't funny. The design for the gameplay and goal system feel unfinished. If one of the two aspects were strong, it'd be easy to call the other an afterthought and move on. But aside from making the "groundbreaking" move of featuring a lot of cursing and strippers, BMX XXX doesn't do anything particularly well. If you're interested in the alternative sports genre, games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and Aggressive Inline make BMX XXX look pathetic by comparison.

Tricks are harder to pull off, challenges are indistinct and pretty unoriginal (using the S-word in telling us to skitch a car doesn't really count as innovation) and the reward is more of the same, or a few seconds of watching some spandex-clad stripper joylessly dance her clothes away - hardly an evolution for the genre, and as a result, compared to the likes of AI, THPS and even Mat Hoffman, triple-X is left severely lacking.

Lastly, this game has so many glitches it isn’t funny. Everyone knows Dave Mirra 1 and 2 had glitches galore, but none of them seriously affected gameplay. BMX XXX is full of clipping, control and animation glitches that make the game a true chore to play through. Jumping off of a ramp only to go into the ground upon landing is not cool, and neither is grinding a rail beside a building and magically warping into the building and falling in space for an eternity. And the game crashes, alot. This game is just a big pile of crap disguised as a BMX game with an adult twist.

The Video Game Critic
The only thing XXX has anything going for it is its uptempo soundtrack, which even includes a track from Green Day. The juvenile humor is cringe-worthy, the graphics are riddled with glitches, and the whole package is sloppy in general. If you select a female rider, the characters still address you as if you were a guy. Clearing stages rewards you with short videos of topless dancers, and while the girls look good (duh!), the dark, grainy videos are not worth investing hours to unlock. If you want to know how bad BMX XXX is, keep in mind that parents didn't even bother to complain about it! That's saying something!
