Downhill Domination for PS2

SO... has anyone played this game? I noticed that it's only for PS2, and not for Xbox, so if it's any good, looks like a PS2 will be sitting beside the Xbox.

I got it for when I can't ride. Its a fun game, good thing in real life I can't launch likethat, or I'd be in the hospital a lot.

My non cycling friends have played it. Few of them hate the car games. They loved it. One even commented on how he was getting veritgo (it was on a big screen).

This game came out around the time the first PS2's came out, so that graphics aren't bad but they're not good. I've played it and it seems ok for about the only biking game out there. I was thinking about buying since it's only $30.

Anyone ever play the arcade mnt bike games that you actually pedal?
They have them at a couple places around here, but i first saw them in Vegas. It seemed alot more tiring than the real thing. Then again when cruising around a casino, your not in the mindset to go biking.

It's a rental. I don't think its worth spending however much a PS2 costs for a game that really isn't that great. Just stick with the xbox and play Halo2 online

That is on my wish list. And I think that my wife will try and get it now. Now that we are married, she really hates it when I take a moonlight ride.

I did a serach fo threadsin this game becasue I was going to reccomend it.

Entertainment software and videogames is my passion!

Downhill Domination is an excellent game from my point of veiw both as a cyclist and a gamer. Everyone should give it a shot.

I was hoping for a sequal, but I'm just happy the one mountain biking game out there happens to be so good.

I have it. Its a good game especially when you have the urge to ride but can't get out to do the real thing.
