North America Retail Box ArtMat Hoffman's Pro BMX uses a refined version of the game engine found in the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. The modes, menu, and trick system are identical. The main difference is that instead of skating around, performing tricks, and collecting videotapes, you're riding a bike, performing tricks, and collecting magazine covers. To accommodate the physics of bicycle tricks, the level design is different from THPS. Some of the levels are good, but most are relatively bland and aren't as clever as what we've seen before. Despite this flaw, it is the best BMX game currently on the market, but in the context of other extreme sports games it falls short. It's too similar to the original THPS and not as good as THPS2. Despite the fact that it's mostly derivative, the game has a few outstanding features. It contains lots of full-motion video sequences, albeit at the expense of load times. The real gem is the soundtrack, which is a nice mix of punk, electronica, hip-hop, and rock. It's definitely one of the best video game soundtracks ever. If you're looking for the best BMX game on the PlayStation, this is it. If you're a fan of extreme sports in general, you'd be better served with THPS2 or waiting for THPS3. --Raymond M. Padilla Pros: Outstanding soundtrack Gamers familiar with the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater series will feel right at home Plenty of full-motion video Cons: Long load times Mediocre level design Not enough enhancements from Tony Hawk's Pro Skater
