Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX is a third-person BMX stunt riding game developed by Z-Axis and published by Acclaim (under their "Acclaim Max Sports" label) for the Sony PlayStation on September 26, 2000, the Sega Dreamcast on November 20, 2000, and the PC on December 14, 2000. A handheld version was developed by Neon Studios for the Game Boy Color on November 10, 2000.
Similar to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, players navigate numerous environments in short timed bursts with their extreme sports vehicle of choice (the BMX bike), completing objectives to unlock new levels and bonus content.
The PS1 version of the game was later re-released as Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX: Maximum Remix on May 21, 2001, adding new levels, riders, music, and a new Expert difficulty setting. This version also includes a bonus soundtrack CD. The game also received sequels, starting with Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 and ending with the infamous spin-off BMX XXX.
Players ride around various areas pulling off different tricks. The trick system involves pulling off one base trick, and then adapting other modifier tricks into that one base trick. The game features exaggerated movement and ragdoll physics.
Four modes are available: Proquest, Free Ride, Session, and two-player (only available in the PlayStation and Dreamcast versions). Each mode has different events and certain tasks to perform.
Players can unlock features by beating the game with various characters. As well as this, players can unlock two secret characters: the Slim Jim mascot and an Amish boy.
