North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtFreekstyle, while generally a strong game, can't help but be the lesser cousin of EA Sports Big's smash hits SSX and SSX Tricky. The moves are more complicated, the learning curve steeper and the charm significantly less for this title compared to its more successful predecessors. And woe to you should you miss a steep jump and expect to hit restart, as in SSX. You'll be forced to take that jump again, with much less velocity than before you wiped out. You'll need to hit it over and over--a fact that makes initial play somewhat tedious. Still, it's unfair to punish Electronic Arts for their past perfection. On its own, Freekstyle has plenty to keep motocross fans happy: courses both for tricking and racing; real world riders and complicated road maps filled with pleasing secret shortcuts. --Jennifer Hauseman
