Hold on to your lunches, Nintendo GameCube players will catch some insane air this fall! Infogrames, Inc. dares gamers to get down and dirty with Big Air Freestyle for Nintendo GameCube, slated to wheelie into stores this fall. Featuring outrageous tricks, loads of tracks and spectacular graphics, Big Air Freestyle promises players massive airtime and sick tricks in an over-the-top motocross experience.

“The definitive Nintendo GameCube motocross game is here and it guarantees the grittiest extreme sports rush imaginable,” says Jean-Philippe Agati, senior vice president and head of Infogrames, Inc.’s Los Angeles studio. “With more than 30 unreal stunts to attempt, awesome bike handling and two-player multiplayer mode all rendered by the graphical capabilities of Nintendo GameCube, gamers of all ages will be diving head-first into the mud-flinging excitement of Big Air Freestyle.”

Big Air Freestyle offers deep gameplay with three unique gameplay modes, encompassing the entire two-wheel offroad experience -- Motocross, Supercross and Freestyle. Players choose to race on large outdoor tracks or specially designed indoor arenas in Motocross and Supercross racing modes. Freestyle mode invites gamers to careen through the air pulling off death-defying stunts in indoor fantasy arenas loaded with ramps and “don’t try this at home” obstacles. The grubby action takes place on more than 20 motocross and supercross tracks and six fantasy freestyle arenas.

Gamers are challenged to land the sickest tricks that even motocross pros won’t attempt. Freestyle mode dares gamers to attempt such absurd stunts as pulling off a ‘monkey bar’ over the Tar Pits or nailing a ‘pommel horse’ over the Zap Trap. Successfully completing the most extreme tricks in the allotted time rewards the player with points, granting them access to new arenas.
