  • Summary: Do you like FZero or WipEout? Then you like this game. Better than Star Wars racing, worse than Wipeout, on the level of Cube's FZero. Killer soundtrack.

G For Good But Not Great

  • 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

Nigh-on impossible

  • Summary: As with many others here, i am a huge Wipeout fan, espescially Wip3out. Not owning a PS2, i figured i would go for the next best thing with Extreme G 2. But Wip3out this game isnt. The worst thing about this game is that it is just far too hard. The learning curve from the start is much too steep.

  • 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...

Extreme Gs

  • 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

Amazing sensation of speed

  • Summary: XG3 has to be the fastest racing game I've come across ever. I've finished GT3, and XG3 makes it feel like the cars are all 2-stroke lawnmowers! When you start off, it'll feel pretty fast already, but once you get to the larger engine sizes you'll be going up to 3 times faster than that!

not worth the hype

  • Summary: The game sports very good graphics but the gamep[lay is bland and there is no real sense of racing against someone. Wipeout 2097 was already superior

Not nearly Wipeout 2097

Henry, Amazon
4 November 2001
  • Summary: I have to admit I was gutted when I played this game. I was a huge fan of Wipeout 2097 and expected something similar but updated to use the full capabilities of the PS2. It looks OK, not great though - after seeing the detail and animation in GT3 I expected a lot more - but it doesn't play well,...
