"Better than GTA and Tony Hawk's"

_Graphics_
Sweet-cool graphics. Only JoyRide is ugly, the rest of all the characters have really well made faces, the women have a really great 3d design, and each head fits in many skins, in Tony Hawks 4 i can't make more than 2 women because they're all ugly, and i just could just find 2 that are mediocre. The clothes in BMX XXX are very close to real clothes, they move like real clothes, pay attention to the plated skirt, the shirts, and even the bling bling moves and get's out of the shirt (In THPS4, Kareem's bling bling doesn't moves, and is a part of the shirt! The skirts are very badly done, even in design, and they don't move, the same for other clothes). Don't even talk about PS versions of Grand Theft Auto, where the graphics are a comedy, i think that they better start to do the game with the graphics of the posters, because in ''PS2-GTA-3d'' they suck. Look, in BMX XXX the girls even have some things that most gamemakers don't do in their very known games, the hairstyles (and they move well), some cool accessories, cool clothes, etc. Another extremely great thing about the graphics are the stages, they're like cities too, but they're better than the stages of any THPS series (2,3,4) and don't even talk about Matt Hoffman! Why better? Because they're aren't levels where in almost all the corners you see an annoying message to show that you can't go any further, no, in BMX XXX the levels have what you really call by ''places''. What's bad about the graphics are the bikes, they're really bad, bad colors and you don't choose them, no colors like silver, gold, gradient navy, etc.

_ Music _
Well, i guess the music made the game great as it is too. We all know the success of THPS series when it comes to soundtracks, but c'mon, they're great but not ''the type'' for games like this, in BMX XXX you'll go anywhere with your bike with songs like Downfall of TrustCompany, Crackling, Juice, Energy, Magic Number of De La Soul, etc, let me tell you, you'll feel the heaven while playing. All the voices are great, and that sound when you fall or do a record will never bore anyone. Errors? Yes, like every game has, BMX XXX has problems on the sounds too. The sounds are based on a ''place'' where you are or pass through, so, it sometimes results on some critical loops. Look, even after HomeLessJones does that big mess, if you pass in the area where he was you'll still hear what he always said when he was there.

_GamePlay_
The records are great, and let's start to talk about one thing that really makes the game great, the moves. BMX XXX has more moves than any THPS, than Matt Hoffman, etc. Why? Because you mix a Backflip with a Superman and you have a SuperFlip, a completely different move; you apply a spin on a Backflip and watch how he morphs into an amazing Flair; the game is great. But it's a bit annoying how the goals are explained, but i got used to it. Also, it's cool to find bike parts, but in that way the game won't have much bikes, and it's worst in bike aspects because you don't even choose them, you build a bike, it comes with a pink color and you must use it! And the gaps should not be only a goal.

_Suggestions_
The Porn girls of the movies should be the female players, not those Mika, JoyRide, etc. And if they really want the game to be a great success, more complex levels and real well designed bikes will do, Acclaim trust me, do that and not even THUG will reach the level of BMX XXX Second Coming. Also, a special move like will do, something like Ultimate Trick or XXX Stunt for each player.
