Just in case you haven't heard BMX XXX is an 18 rated game for one reason, strippers. Yes there is some dodgy American teenager humour that you can't avoid, you probably should because it isn't funny. The real reason for the 18 rated certificate is the video clips of strippers, you are rewarded with these when you complete each level, there are three per level and one per competition which is only unlocked when you place first. This is a sweaty teenagers dream, the language, the strippers and the general dirtiness of the game means there will be hundreds of them tossing off around the county to a computer game!
BMX XXX doesn't look that good to be honest, but the levels are nice and large. The riders don't really look like they have had any life injected into them as they haven't been animated very well. When you pull off a trick on the ground the animation is at its worst, the bike and rider will jerk from one position to another. Unfortunately there is nothing outstanding in this department while some of the animation is definitely sub-standard.
As for the sound it's all pretty standard. The sound effects are familiar, but when you ride past pedestrians they will talk or make a comment most of them only have the one phrase though. When riding around the same spot for a while this can become extremely annoying. The sound track is all rock based featuring new and old bands such as the 80's band Motley Crue to Green Day.
Most games that are based on quirks and hilarity are not very good games. BMX XXX is not really any different but it is an improvement in some respects on Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2. Much of the game does feel half baked and almost unfinished and the risky move to feature strippers and cursing was never going to fill a the large gap in the gameplay. If you want to see strippers get a film out and if you want an extreme sports game get Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 or Aggressive Inline as they really do make BMX XXX look pathetic.
