"Dirty, Naughty, Fun..."

Synopsis:
BMX XXX, without a doubt, is probably the most controversial game on the market today. It's rude, crude, dirty, and full of sex jokes...but it sure is a lot of fun! You're put in the shoes of over 10 fictional riders (any actual riders would probably cause a lot of problems) whose main goal is to accomplish over fifty different objectives that are all based on sex jokes and bodily functions. Successfully complete a couple missions and you'll earn a new level or if you're lucky, a bonus movie of a stripper (yes, they're real women). The game has an increasing difficulty as you progress and clever (yet crude)mission designs that will keep you interested for a very long time.

Graphics:
The graphics in this game aren't anything special, but they're satisfactory. All of the character's faces (and bodies) are meshes, so don't expect to see them move their mouths when they speak. The framerate moves smoothly, but I've experienced slow-down in multiplayer matches and once in the solo mode. It only lasts for a few seconds, so it isn't too bothering. The levels are colorful and detailed, so you'll probably find yourself looking at most of the signs to catch the dirty jokes or watch how some people act in the environment. Otherwise, the graphics look decent, but they really needed some work.
Final Score: 6.5

Sound:
Like most extreme sports games, the soundtrack features punk rock and some hip-hop. It's an OK soundtrack, but it always plays in the same order and there's no way to change it. Whenever you talk to someone, the song changes, so it's common to only hear a few seconds of one song and then skip into another. The characters also have numerous vocals, most of which contain profanity or sex jokes of some sort. You should expect to hear the ''f'' word and the ''s'' word within the first twenty seconds of the game. Nothing is bleeped out, which makes it actually a lot more interesting and funnier. People interact with you if you get to close to them. Hotdog and Peanut vendors, just to name a few, pull a few dirty references to male genitalia, which get kind of old the 30th time you've heard them. The sound is really good, but just don't play this game around young children or your parents.
Final Score: 9

Controls:
It plays like Tony Hawk. That pretty much sums up the entire segment. Press a direction or two and then press Circle or Square, and you'll do a trick. Press Triangle near a rail, and you'll grind it. It's a simple concept, but it's a lot harder to land a bike than a skateboard. You'll find yourself crashing alot, and this gets rather annoying when you're carrying a person on your bike's pegs. They'll fall off and you'll need to restart the mission. The controls are sometimes unresponsive and clunky, but you get used to it.
Final Score: 7

Replay Value:
You're going to be playing this game for a very long time. Every mission you experience is different from the last, and they increase in difficulty as you get to newer levels. You'll want to unlock all the bonus movies (which feature actual women strippers) just to see how extreme this game can get. The multiplayer modes are addictively fun also. There's the usual ''beat your opponents score'' mode which is alright, but the game really shines in Strip BMX and PaintBall BMX. Strip BMX is a HORSE-type game where you pull off extreme combos. If you pull off the highest combo, your opponent loses an article of clothing. Keep going until one of you gets naked. BMX PaintBall pits one player against another player who is randomly placed in the level. The player on the bike must collect as many BoomBox icons as possible before he/she gets wasted by the paintball gun shootin' opponent. You have the choice of grenades, rockets, rapid fire, or sniper rifles. It's some extremely fun stuff if you have a couple equally immature friends to spare. All in all, this game will keep you interested until you've gotten everything.
Final Score: 8.5

Final Word:
You owe it to yourself to check this game out. Rent it first, see if you laugh to yourself the first couple of missions. If you aren't offended, think about buying it. It's a groundbreakingingly bold move in the battle against censorship that you should definitely participate in.
