Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX :: Playstation Game Review

Mat Hoffman is one hardcore dude. He's done things his way, all the way and ended up on top of the BMX scene cuz of his mad skillz. Now Activision, makers of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, Spider-Man and a couple more of the coolest games on the planet, are pumping his action and moves into your home. He's on the Playstation with a stack of levels, a bunch of his buddies and the hottest tunes you'll ever find on a video game.

Mat's game uses the Tony Hawk game engine and graphics. It looks good on the Playstation but once they make the Sega Dreamcast version in August 2001 they'll have to pump 'em up. There are a few glitches though. Things disappear, flicker and slowdown when you least expect it. They'll take a bite out of your fun.


The graphics aren't gonna win any awards but the tunes will. It's worth picking this game up just to rock out to the beats. You'll be listening to Jurassic 5, Paris and other hot bands. It's not Lil' Romeo but it'll get your groove on and even the regular sound fx kick butt.


Once you fire it up you'll be able to choose from a roster of BMX badboys - Mike Escamilla, Mat Hoffman, Rick Thorne and others. There are a few issues with the controls though. The timing is a little off, some of the recoveries take too long and it's really hard to pull a quick move. You need time to set them up, which sucks cuz you're always on the clock.


Hardcore's are gonna be annoyed by control issues and bugs but if you're looking for BMX action it's totally worth checking out.


How hard is the game?

It shouldn't be hard but the picky controls make it difficult.
