Using the Neversoft game engine featured in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, Mat Hoffman's Pro BMX offers open 3D environments, an intuitive trick system, and options to customize riders, develop skills, and design courses. The game also boasts a modern "alternative" soundtrack to enhance the cultural authenticity of the experience with selections ranging from old-school punk to thrash, including groups like Outkast, Jurassic 5, Dead Prez, and Static-X.
Career mode unlocks levels and bikes for play in single session and free ride modes. Initially, only one bike is available, with extra stages and wheels unlocked by collecting magazine covers and completing objectives similar to those in Tony Hawk. Gameplay includes building scores, locating secret covers, knocking over items, and capturing floating letters. As you advance, Bluetorch and CFB Competitions open up, where your repertoire of grinds, flips, jumps, and other tricks are tested in several heats to gain the highest score.
Multiplayer action includes a variation of HORSE, where you beat the previous player's score to avoid getting letters that spell out words, Graffiti (earn points by tricking off specific objects), and Trick Attack, which is a free-for all to gain the most points. HORSE can be played in hot-seat form, but the others are only available on a LAN setup. ~ Jon Thompson, All Game Guide
