Summary: This is a great game from the last generation. I originally owned it for the PS2, but after trading that in for a PS3 I was unable to play it. I was happy to see it's just as good with gamecube controls and the graphics are great for it's age. Unfortunately the seller I bought this from didn't Include the case, which was slightly disappointing.
Excerpt: -(Game Information)- Name:Extreme G-3 Published and developed by Acclaim Genre:Futuristic Racing Release Date:May 3, 2002 Age Rating:3+ for mild violence Number Of Players:1-4 Online:No Memory Card Usage:6 blocks -(History)- Acclaim were quite a mixed company. It had many great games, like the original Turok games, Aggressive Inline and Extreme G-3, yet they had some less than stellar games.
Pros: Excellent visuals; fitting soundtrack; very fast sense of speed; fast and furious gameplay is fun .
Cons: Quite challenging; soundtrack can be repetitive at times; a little lack of modes .
Excerpt: History ********* The Extreme-G series first made it onto our shores in 1997 on, the Nintendo64. The game is produce by Acclaim who is behind many other great games for example Turok, Shadowman, and their newer series Burnout. So will The Third Extreme G installment meet the expectations of the previous versions?
Pros: fast furious better graphics then Nintendo 64 versions, good music
Summary: This game looks amazing. It really does. Until you put the disc into your GameCube, that is. The level designs are bland and boring, the single-player is frustrating and the multi-player is repetetive. The choice of character makes no noticable difference to the race and nor does the choice of weapons. This game does not need to exist any more. If you want to play a futuristic racer just buy F-Zero GX, which is by far superior.
Excerpt: There isnt much here to say really. I f your a fan of the series from the first two titles on the N64..YOU MUST GET THIS....aside from the obvious improved graphics this title is astonishing on the gamecube. The controls are a bit akward but you should be able to in no time get accustomed to controlling your futuristic bike going speeds past the sound barrier!!!
Pros: BEST GRAPHICS IN THE SERIES EVER ! even better than the the newest in the series XGRA ! ! !
Cons: no online play and controls are a bit akward could be better
Summary: When I put it in the Gamecube and saw the starting sequence I thought what a good buy this was and I played it for almost 5 hours straight. I already had played it on the ps2 and thought it was a great game. it took a little bit to get used to it but I had cracked the controls and the technique. after that I really could feel the speed as you shoot past the other competators and then finished first. Unfortunatly that didn't last.
Summary: This is an exiting game with some amazing sceanery. I think its a good idea to be able to buy new weapons i.e rockets and leeches. The multiplayer is good but 2 player co-operative can get very hard and frustrating. You will find yourself shouting and screaming at the other bikes as they swerve in front of you as they try desperatly to hang on to the lead.
Excerpt: The N64 Extreme G was great; fun, competitive and crazy was what made this game what it is today. But in the two N64 hits, something was missing. Even though racing was very enjoyable, it didn't have sense of speed. Burning down a track at speeds up to 800 miles per hour could easily be mistaken for going shopping with your Grandma. But then when the third addition on a Nintendo console was released, things would change.
Summary: There were a pretty large number of racing games available for the Gamecube right from day one, so you may be asking yourself which one is worth parting with your hard earned cash for. Well, if you want real arcade action, with speed, weapons and then some more speed, you could do a lot worse than to consider XG3. From the moment you put the disk in and fire up that deceptive little cube, the game is slick.
