"Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2" is a video game released for the Gameboy Advance console in 2002 by Accclaim. It is a sports title with BMX biking being represented. In the United States, the game received a rating of "E" by the ESRB panel which deemed it suitable for all ages.
In this title, players control Dave Mirra and must complete a series of stunt based races. Two modes of play are offered to the player through "Freeride" mode which allows for practice without time restrictions and a "Pro Quest" mode for regular play. The player initially has access to one course and earns an additional eleven by completing the specified requirements of each course which tends to be accumulating a set amount of points through successful trick performance. Tricks are executed by making use of one of the track's many jumps and entering combinations of A, B, L, R and directional buttons to execute a specific function. There is a learning curve in memorizing these combinations but in general the game presents little difficulty.
The graphics of this title are presented from an isometric perspective which focuses on Dave Mirra. The detailing efforts applied to Mirra are acceptable but there did not appear to be any distinguishing facial features; the rider appears to be a faceless image. The surrounding environment, including the trick rails and ramps, are quite well detailed to perhaps take attention away from the rider. The soundtrack features unique musical scores for each track which can become slightly repetitive throughout the practice mode. This repetitiveness does not appear to be an issue in the "Pro Quest" mode due to its time restricted play.
Overall, Freestyle BMX would likely appeal to fans of stunt based racing games. The overall package handles very similarly to "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2" which is a seal of quality in itself.
