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
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...
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: 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!
Summary: I have the previous versions on the N64 they were good but this is emense. Its fast,furious and fabulous. If youve played the previous versions you'll know what i'm talking about. The smooth graphics are amazing and the tracks are superb. A brilliant game for anyone
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,...
