Review / Test:
I didn't really like extreme sport games before trying Dave Mirra 2, now I'm not addicted but I'm far more interested. Where Activision/Treyarch failed to convince me, Acclaim/Z-Axis succeeded. Though it's an old game now, with primitive 128 bits graphics, it remains quite fun and very challenging.
There are many things to do in the 10 big levels of the game, you can even fully edit your own. Some of the challenges are very tough and sometimes the control tends to be very annoying, but beyond that, you can enjoy yourself all the way. You can perform tons of different tricks and combos thanks to a linking system. The only thing that is really lacking to Dave Mirra 2 is a personality, it's a bit lifeless like most extreme sport games. You have your 3 minutes task to do, a few boring persons to talk to and that's it. Aggressive Inline has much more to offer in this area.
Yep, Aggressive Inline is Z-Axis' great successor to Dave Mirra 2, but it's worth to try this one too. It must be easy to get it cheap by now, you should give a try, you'll definitely not feel like you've been wasting your money.
