Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2 for Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2)
In Dave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2's main mode, known as the Pro-Quest, players pick their riders and bikes and then assault eight different stages with all the tricks and spins they can crank out. Each level has five ranks for players to conquer: Rookie, Amateur, Pro, Hardcore, and Insane. The Rookie challenge is always a score test, and the next three levels each contain four challenges of increasing difficulty. Within the levels are other pro riders, and you will have to seek out a different rider for every level to receive his challenge. The Insane challenge is always a single trick with a very high degree of difficulty. Finishing the difficulty levels on each stage will open new opportunities by giving you sponsorships, revealing special tricks, and opening up more stages to play. Finishing the Pro level will always open the next stage, and each challenge you complete will not only score you regular points in the level, but also add to something new toDave Mirra Freestyle BMX 2: respect points. Respect points are entirely different from the regular points, as they are cumulative over the course of the entire game. You can earn up to 50,000 respect points, and there are plenty of different ways you can obtain them. This includes completing challenges, jumping all of the special gaps contained in a given stage, and placing within the Pro-Quest's competitions. You won't be allowed to enter competitions right away -- you have to score at least 10,000 respect points first to show that you're worthy. After you do so, the first stage will be open to competition, and you'll have two runs to show off your skills. Placing first, second, or third will give you respect points and open the next stage up to competition. The judging becomes tougher as you go, however. To help players out, new bikes that increase a rider's stats are available at certain respect point levels.
