XG Fun!

The good:

~Graphics
~Nuclear powered Motorbikes!
~Super sound track
~Wide array of weapons
~Mentally good tracks
~No 2 player slowdown

The bad:

~Not enough tracks
~Not all tracks have inversions

Summary:

This has to be one of the best racers ever. Whatever console its on its good. I got mine for just £5 from currys!

If your a speed freak looking for something good get this instead of F-Zero. The races are much better than F-zero as you can actully be in 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc. For a long time and you don't just go from first to fortieth. The inversions are great with loops that are almost sqaure
On Oceania. Feel like going on a massive corkscrew in a tunnel? just go to verdegrand! When you buy the game you will undrstand. The music is one of the best parts of the game. It's by ministry of sound wh...

Fast and nothing more!

Summary:

Granted its the fastest game I have ever played in my life. I mean how often do you break the sound barrier in games? But beyond the speed factor, there is nothing else left. There is no reason to play the game. I will admit the graphics or pretty darn spectacular, but the gameplay is definitely where this game falls short, and when it comes down to it that is the main factor in games, especially racing ones like this. The concept behind the game is that you play in these futuristic motorcycle jet-propelled flying thingies. It may sound cool, but once you hop in and give it a run it dies of...

Vroom baby, VROOOOM!

Summary:

This game is crazy. It gets very fuggin.. hard late in the game, but lemme tell ya a story. I'm an artist. I love motorcycles. Not enough yet to know the sum of a cycles parts, I'm still a caveman in that area, but I love riding them and one day want to own a few and ride across America...or Japan. Either one...preferably Japan. Anyway, I love anime too, and sci fi. Mix the two and...HOVERBIKES. And that's exactly the type of theme and supa dupa rocketboy stylin' that EG3 is all about.

It's simple, mind numbingly simple. See what it did ta me? After picking your team of choice and player of ...

Ziiipppp!

The good:

Nice graphics, great soundtrack, fun guns!

The bad:

Not much replay value

Summary:

While a very fun game, you spend a lot of time just holding down a button or two, which actually begins to hurt after a while. It's not much for a party game, but it is fun. The wide assortent of weapondry makes this game hilarious to some degree as you see your enemy flying away in a burst of fire! The soundtrack will make you run over to Morpheus or Kazaa and try to download it! It did freeze on me one or two times however.

CALLING ALL SPEED FREAKS! THE FUTURE IS NOW!

The good:

X-ceptional sense of speed. Framerate throughout is consistent, save for a drop in one of the later levels. Courses are fantastically beautiful, with not absolutely NO pop-in tp speak of. Controls are spot-on. SPOT-ON, jack. Wait 'til you experience that "G-factor" for yourself. Sound fits comfortably into the game's overall presentation. Excellent sense of competition throughout. A really polished, next-gen video game.

The bad:

Hmmm, lemme see. The Atradaitoshi course features a phenomenal rain that is on the level of MGS2. Here you shall experience a drop in framerate, but it doesn't hinder gameplay. Too short. Too short. Too short. Lacks depth for LONG, EXTENDED gameplay. To hell with nitpickers!

Summary:

Firstly, XG3 epitomizes what a next-generation videogame should look, feel, and play like. Of course, you know the awesomeness that is Metal Gear Solid 2. You probably even did yourself a favor and basked in the remarkable wonder of ICO. But you haven't witnessed the future, literally, until you've raced at speeds of up to 1000 MPH on tracks so beautifully realized, it'll make your head spin. We're talking state-of-the-art controls, masterful special effects, and astoundingly strong audio. Extreme G Racing is in a class of its own. And me not being a true Wipeout fan, this'll be the only fu...

XG3

The good:

It's addictive!

The bad:

No race replays.

Summary:

It's fun, but the higher end weapons respond to slowly. I have tried many, but they need a high powered repeater. Other than that, the speed is great!
Buy engines first! A weapon won't cross the finish line without an engine.
