|Championship Motocross featuring Ricky Carmichael gives you the chance to jump on the dirt bike of the two-time American Motorcyclist Association Nationals champion as you race your way to glory on 12 motocross, supercross, and enduro tracks from around the world. Fly through the air after a big jump and really show off what you've got with a variety of stunt moves like the "Superman" and "Nac-Nac." Choose from three classes of bikes (125cc, 250cc, and 500cc) as well as three more from within the class, each varying in engine power, engine torque, top speed, weight, and handling. Suit your bike for variant tracks and weather conditions by selecting one of three types of exhausts, sprockets, tires, suspension setups, and brakes.|
Of the five play modes, Championship presents the greatest overall challenge as you fight for first through four seasons of eight-man races. Starting with the horsepower-deficient but easy-to-handle 125cc bikes in the first season, each following series of races gets tougher as you move on to 250cc, 500cc, and Open, which allows you to choose your bike's class. Further, each progressive season includes more races -- six, eight, ten and 12, respectively. Points are allocated based on placement in each race and the racer with the most points at season's end can celebrate his superiority. Meanwhile, failure to amass a designated point total after a certain number of events will prohibit further advancement. The game rewards your first-place finishes in all four seasons with a new Fox Racing motocross video entitled "Wrath Child."
The extent of tracks available in other modes of play depends upon your success in the Championship mode; certain tracks become available once you have qualified to race on them. These modes include Single Race, Practice, Head to Head, and a race against the clock in Time Attack. The game also features a variety of options, such as number of laps (three or five), split screen orientation (horizontal or vertical), weather (turn effects on or off), and others.
Championship Motocross includes eight hard-rockin' tracks from name artists like Godsmack and Vanilla Ice, each meant to pump up your adrenaline as you show the other racers what you've got. Only you will be able to answer Grinspoon's musical question: "So you wanna be a champion?"
