Or is that BMX 2 Simulator? Never mind, let's hear what David has to say about this one.

"BMX makes the others eat dirt! It's so realistic, and with FOUR PLAYERS it's CRUCIAL"!"

Actually. Dave, people stopped saying that things were "crucial" in about 1954. but no matter. And why is everything so "realistic" all the time? It's only a &%c£ing computer game, you fool!

In fact this is a great improvement on BMX 1, the game Dr Berkroann was Completely Wrong About. Right, let's be completely honest here - I thought it was a mound of raw sewage, as boring and pointless as, well, Blockbusters would be without Bob Holness. Yes. that bad.

With BMX2, though, the graphics are much improved, and now four players can play at one time. Only just, mind - it gets a little crowded around that Speccy, and it does assume you have two joystick interfaces (+2 or +3 only, that is). But it makes for an exciting contest. There are ten courses in all, with the added fun of action replays in slow motion from time to time. It's good fun. and no doubt securely locked to the top of the charts by the time you read this. A timely sequel.
