One of the most dynamic American contenders for Olympic gold in the 2002 Winter Games, Jonny Moseley won the gold medal at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan, for the freestyle mogul event. He came home a national hero and is as popular in mainstream skiing as he is with hardcore freeskiers. In 2000 he won the Freeze US Freeskier Slopestyle event, as well as a silver medal in the ‘Big Air’ event at the 1999 Winter X-Games. He has revolutionised skiing by bringing a non-traditional, ‘extreme’ style to the Olympics and became world famous for his trademark jump, the ‘360 mute grab’.
Maximising PlayStation® technology, Jonny Moseley Mad Trix uses an all-new second-generation game engine which creates unique and stunningly photo-realistic environments. In the Slopestyle mode, players race through fantastical environments such as snowed-in San Francisco, Las Vegas, Rome and many other cities, pulling off sick tricks and competing for medals, sponsors and fame. The Slopestyle courses are man-made, with half-pipes, quarter-pipes, kickers, picnic tables, big air ramps and rails, all used to rack up huge trick points.
Jonny Moseley Mad Trix was published by 3DO Europe for PlayStation®2 on 8th March and will be published for Game Boy® Advance on 15th March 2002, both priced £29.99.
The Jonny Moseley Mad Trix Online Graffiti Competition designs will be judged by the HEAD® design team and the winner will be announced on 14th June 2002.
