  1. 70
    It's one of those rare kinds of games that leaves you satisfied on multiple levels while creating disappointment in others. Basically, it's a seventh grade relationship in digital form.
  2. If you're in the mood for a game where each event is reasonably well designed and integrated into a greater, meatier whole, then Infogrames' Xtreme Sports should prove satisfying.
  3. 80
    The controls feel stiff at first and aren't configurable (lame!), but racing pros will like learning to finesse tight responses from the controller.
  4. The game does offer some good thrills and hours of fun, but just may get repetitious before it's all said and done.
  5. Xtreme Sports offers pretty graphics and varied gameplay, but the individual events are simply too limited for this to have a long shelf life. However, the new events really sets XS apart from other sports titles.
  6. Definitely a pretty game to look at. Unfortunately some noticeable control issues and the distinct feel that it was rushed out door for the holiday season hamper what could have been a very rewarding experience.
  7. If not for the "xtreme" difficulty of the game, this would be one of the best titles of the year. It's still a landmark in terms of graphics.
  8. As my son put it, "This game was designed by mean old men who just wanted to twist our minds." I couldn't have said it better myself.
  9. One of the neatest extreme sports games I have played; sadly, it is also one of the most stale, gameplay-wise.
  10. Great game, horrible music. Very addictive gameplay, and different sports that are all crammed into one game combine to make a very innovative and fun game.
  11. The biggest flaw with the game is it's insane difficulty. We're talking "MDK 2" like difficulty. So bad it will have you either frustrated before you can get past the first mode or so mad at the cheating AI that you'll stop playing after a few races.
  12. A classic case of style over substance, too many of Xtreme Sports' events stumble off the starting block.
  13. You're flying down a mountain, and you look like your going to run into a rock wall, and all of a sudden, the wall MOVES and makes way to snow. Now if this was a science fiction game, then I could understand. But it's not.
