Excerpt: *A review of XG3: Extreme-G Racing which primarily focuses on the single-player experience.* PRESENTATION Short loading times despite being based on CD, and fast when dealing with memory card. Not so quick when navigating cycle menus where other options are not obviously apparent.
Pros: Strong sense of speed, smooth graphics, excellent rain effects
Cons: Somewhat artificial challenge and length, low replay value
Excerpt: Very original game. Suped up, futuristic motor bikes with turbos & weapons on some rather interesting tracks. Play along, against eachother or as a team against the computer, win he race, win points & start upgrading your bikes.
Excerpt: I was a little sceptical after buying Extreme G III because after playing the original Wipeout for the PS1 i vowed i would never again play a super fast racing game like it, however after enjoying Wipeout Fusion and seeing this title available in my local games shop for the measly price of £2.99...
Pros: Fast Paced Action, Good Graphics, Cheap
Cons: Steep Learning Curve, Only One Track Open At Start
Excerpt: Want a really fast racer? Want really insane tracks? Want weapons mounted on bikes? XG3: Extreme G Racing has answered your prayers. In this game you will get 10 incredible and insane tracks with gut-wrenching loops, corkscrews, near-vertical drops and spirals.
Pros: Great bikes, soundtrack music and tracks
Cons: Fingers will hurt when using boost button too often
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.
