BMX Freestyle

In a way you can't really blame those Code Masters boys. BMX Simulator was their vastest seller, so it's not surprising that they keep trying to do it again with umpteen variations on that oh-so-successful theme. Bit boring for the rest of us, though, as yet another opportunity to perform wheelies, jump ramps, do the half pipe and so on appears on the shelves. Do we want to know any more? I certainly don't.

This game wants to be a sort of BMX equivalent of those Winter/Summer/World/California Games compilations, but it's infinitely more boring than any of those (yes, even California Games). It's all very slick, of course, but well past its Sell By date, and so rather stale and mouldy. Oh. hang on, I got that completely wrong — on the packaging David Darling says "They're all great - amazingly playable." Well, of course, how foolish of me not to notice. I think I better shoot myself in remorse. BANG!
