Excerpt: The ‘futuristic racer’ is coming back with a vengeance of late, with the likes of the forthcoming F-Zero GX rekindling the public’s love of all things fast and brightly coloured. XGRA or Extreme-G Racing Association to give its full name, is the fourth game in the XG series, which in all honesty,...
Excerpt: Gravity is indeed a harsh mistress -- so why not just get rid of it completely? I mean, sure it would present a few logistical problems what with that whole floating in the air thing, but at least you wouldn't fall on the ground...right?
Excerpt: Not as Extreme as 3, but still a good game. Extreme G Racing Association is the fourth in the series of futuristic motor sports. These games feature enhanced motorcycles capable of breaking the sound barrier and faster.
Conclusion: The track designs, modeled after real world locations, concentrate on providing you opportunity for speed, but still include plenty of extras like loops and shortcuts. The weapons and combat upgrades are a major plus in the game play department.
Excerpt: is the latest game in the underrated, futuristic racing series from Acclaim. The last title was well received, but developer Acclaim made several drastic changes to the sequel with varying levels of success.
Excerpt: Space-age racing games have come a long way since F-Zero on SNES (And probably a few more before that), progressing through legendary franchises such as Wipeout, F-Zero, and Extreme G. This offering comes as the next instalment in the latter.
Summary: Futuristic racers are making quite a comeback as of late. Sony released a new game awhile back and the true perennial classic, , just made an appearance last month. Now it’s time for Acclaim to bring forth , a high-speed futuristic cycle racer that places a heavy emphasis on speed and combat.
Conclusion: A decent soundtrack that mixes rock and dance accompanies the action, and the difficulty setting seems to encourage rather than dishearten - XGRA is a fast, spectacular and addictive future racer, and I actually enjoyed it more than Wipeout Fusion.
Pros: Incredible high speeds, spectacular tracks and effects.
Cons: It's another futuristic racer., The replays are disappointing.
