If you think of the action-sports genre as a big, fat teat thats getting sucked dry by games like Tony Hawk and Dave Mirra, then it isnt hard to see why developer Z-Axis latest bike-fest is stacked with boobage. After all, where do you take a genre thats completely saturated with clones and sequels? Why, straight to the trailer park, of course.

Some of you may remember first seeing this game under the title Dave Mirra BMX XXX. Naw, youre not partying too hard that was the original title, but publisher Acclaim decided to ditch the Mirra license in order to make the naughtiest, most juvenile gaming experience possible. With a non-licensed product we can really push the envelope, says Alan Lewis, director of public relations at Acclaim.

According to him, this descent into the gutter is a natural, evolutionary step. Folks are looking for an entirely new experience. BMX XXX is raw, rowdy and real, boasts Lewis. Were introducing strippers, pimps, hookers, bums, drunks, monkeys, dogs all part of a cast of 50 whacked-out personalities.

To tell you the truth, were not sure if its whacked-out or just plain whack. Similar to Aggressive Inline and the soon-to-be released Tony Hawk 4, BMX XXX lets you explore its huge environments without the pressure of time limits. You progress through the game by talking to lowlifes who give you lowbrow objectives. Take the Probe Payback episode for instance, where you poke aliens in the ass with your bike to avenge an indignant Russian cosmonaut; in Rent-a-Bitch, you sacrifice a pimps poodle to satisfy a dirty, crapping dog on the loose. Those of you tired of free porn on the Internet can finally buy your kicks with BMX XXX's peepshows that feature live-action videos of real-life strippers. And yes, this game is rated Mature.

Throw in random profanities (the s word, the f word, etc.) and youve got a game so over-the-top, youll laugh at it purely out of embarassment for its creators. Do you really care that BMX XXX plays and controls just like the other Mirra games? Or that its got new flatland and recovery techniques? No, of course not. Whos got time for gameplay when there are tits to be had?

Game Reviews

Extreme sports games have quickly moved from a niche market to a mainstream product thanks to games like Tony Hawk, Aggressive Inline and Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX. While I have played my share of these extreme games, they have never really grabbed hold of me. Under normal circumstances, I would never opt to review one of these titles. But these are not normal circumstances and on the surface, this is not your normal extreme game. The thought of naked chicks, sophomoric humor, smut, profanity and just downright nastiness was enough to convince me to give this genre another chance.

Let's get one thing out of the way right now (because I know what you are looking for) ' yes, this game contains everything as advertised, but don't get too excited yet. If you are after the swearing, sexual innuendo, and crude humor, you will be satisfied right out of the box. If you are after the naked chicks, you are going to have to work for it. Every piece of marketing material Acclaim has spit out shows a topless rider but don't think you can create her from the get go. You actually have to play the game and the more you play, the more smut you are rewarded with. This is also true of the stripper videos. Hey, nothing comes for free right?

Once you get past the aforementioned items, what you will find is a fully functional BMX game. All of the tricks, stunts, ramps, grinds and challenges associated with BMX games are accounted for. This game was originally supposed to be the next game in the Dave Mirra series so the game engine is not new. I think most people will be surprised (as I was) at the level of complexity and tricks the game allows. I was expecting the game to be nothing more than a few fetch challenges or timed races but what I found was that the game actually requires quite a bit of skill to move forward. Actually, it required too much skill in some cases, to the point where novices like myself will become increasingly frustrated because they cannot pull off a task required to move the game forward.

Fortunately, the game structure allows players to complete tasks in the order they are most comfortable with. There are main tasks, and there are sub tasks. I found the balance of tasks to be either too easy or too difficult ' there wasn't much middle ground. A seasoned extreme gamer may not have the problems I encountered but there were times I had to turn off the system and walk away to relieve some frustrations. Part of the fun is learning about these tasks from the people so I won't spoil any of them for you.

All is not well in XXX land though. For some reason, stopping your bike is a chore. I can't even count the number of times I went passed my intended stopping point all while jamming the brakes on. I fell off off more roofs, down stairwells and raced head on into traffic more times than I can count. Also, objectives are not always clearly defined. I met up with another NPC rider and he told me I needed to perform a specific trick. I had no idea what the trick was let alone how to perform it. It would have done wonders for me to actually show me an example of the trick, so I at least knew what I was supposed to be doing. Maybe cut scenes showing the challenger performing the trick and then you have to mimic?

If you are not a fan of extreme sports games and think BMX XXX is going to change your mind, you will be disappointed. This game follows the same path as traditional extreme sports titles; only it does it with a dirty mind. I was hoping they would dumb the game down for a person like me, who frankly suck at this type of game, to make it more accessible but that is just not the case. Also keep in mind, the naked factor in this game plays out like a typical date; the first date you get nothing, the second date you get a little teaser, the third date, you make it to second base and the fourth date you get a little action. You have to play through the game before you are rewarded with your homerun.
