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: 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!
Excerpt: XG3, while a good game lacks some fundamental game physics which would make it truly spectacular. First of all the graphics are superb, there are enough characters to keep it interesting, and there are a total of nine well thought out courses over three leagues.
Excerpt: The Extreme G games have been around for some time now; some may be surprised, those who have not owned the best console ever, the Nintendo 64 will have not have heard of Extreme G. The first, the original Extreme G appeared on the N64 and came on the scene very soon after the N64 launched.
Excerpt: First the good part- Extrem G Racing , released by Acclaim, is one VERY fast game. The loading is pretty fast, the visuals are very fluid, and the overall sense of speed is abundant. There are many points that I like but the visuals are probably my favourite.
Pros: Breakneck Speeds, Music by Ministry of Sound, 6 teams/12 characters to choose from, Graphics
