some serious control issues that seriously detract from the fun, it has to be
said that this is by far the most enjoyable futuristic racer to come out in some
time. Extreme G3 has an excellent graphics engine that allows the game to offer
an incredibly stylish and detailed visual flavor that is cutting edge but
realistic. Additionally, the visuals offer smooth frame-rates, limited
appearances of the dreaded PS2 jaggies, dazzling environments and blistering
Excerpt: Extreme-G originally appeared on the Nintendo 64 in 1997 to counter Sony's Wipeout series. However, it lacked all of the elements that Wipeout brought to the table and was ultimately a lackluster title. The one reason for its success was that it was on the Nintendo 64--a software-starved platform. Several years later, Acclaim brings the third incarnation of the series to gamers. Unfortunately, it fails to make a lasting impression.
Summary: Early N64 adopters are familiar with the name. Though Extreme-G 3 packs an aural and visual wallop, the racing action doesn't quite hold its own. Try before you buy, because XG3 is an acquired taste for some.
Pros: Catchy soundtrack, Nice selection of racing vehicles, Nice-to-gorgeous courses and visual effects, Solid control
Cons: Confusing "icon" menu layout, Doesn't feel like a "real" racer when playing against the CPU.
Conclusion: Det är inte det vackraste spelet jag sett, men grafiken är helt perfekt för denna speltyp. Med stabila 60 fps så blir det en stark åtta. Detta är svårt. I första halvan av spelet så är det en klar nia, men mot slutet så tävlar man i så extrema farter att man krockar i de skarpaste kurvorna. På grund av den sköna styrningen sätter jag en sjua. Spelet är väldigt svårt.
