In the wake of BMX’s much hyped second appearance in the Olympics, it seems only fitting that BMX racing has finally made it’s way into the video game arena.
It’s doing so by way of Turborilla’s Mad Skills BMX (a sort of followup game to their Mad Skills Motocross game). Supercross BMX, Fly Racing, Kicker, Go Pro, and Red Bull have all lent their support to this game so it promises to be good.
Of course, there are have been a number of BMX video game titles available through the years…most notably Mat Hoffman’s Pro BMX, Dave Mirra’s Freestyle BMX and (gasp!) BMX XXX…but this is the first time we’re seeing something more racing focused ( there is still a liberal helping of jumping, tricks, etc. to keep things interesting though).
Sure beats Excitebike, that’s for sure.
