After ditching an X-rated biking game years ago, Dave Mirra returns to gaming.
BMX biker Dave Mirra has won more X-Games medals than any other athlete. A long time ago, he also had a couple of BMX video games from Acclaim that were some of the best extreme sports games around. Mirra's second game for PS2/GC/Xbox was compared favorably with the Tony Hawk skateboarding series. When the third game took a raunchy turn, Mirra bailed, and history would prove him wise as the resulting BMX XXX was a disaster in every way. Acclaim is now gone, but Crave Entertainment hopes to bring back the magic with a completely new game, Dave Mirra BMX Challenge.
As the first BMX game for Wii, this one packs both racing and trick modes through a dozen levels. Each level has two different race routes available. Along with Mirra himself, you can create your own character through a customization process. The Wii version is being outfitted with multiple control schemes involving both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. This arcade-style take on extreme bicycling is a budget title (like all of Crave's games) and has been ported up from a PSP version, already released.
