ZiggyStardustMay 11, 2002Extreme plays fairly well, but it's missing a bunch of features that should have been there. it doesn"t keep track of record times! who ever heard of such a thing in a modern racing game? all it keeps track of are seaparte saved game track times, without a name beside them (your grandma may hold a record, you don't know). so basically if you and a friend want to both beat XG3, your record times won"t be in competition with one another since they're different saved games. you'll just be competeing against yourself. secondly, tracks have to be unlocked in order to play them. since there are no difficulty settings, some people may only get to play 1 level (i feel for the newinexperienced gamers here). my younger cousin couldn't come close to unlocking track 2 after a bunch of tries. thirdly, the interface for getting a game started is poor. you are forced to load a saved game every time you want to play; there's no quick way for you and your friends to just jump in and have some fun. fourthly, the graphics are a little jagged and unimpressive. i guess they have an excuse since the framerate needs to be so high. but there's still some slowdown in later levels (especially with rain) those are my large gripes. with those things changed, this game would kick butt, currently it doesn't though. ps. it's also a bit of an f-zero x rip-off (except it"s not as good) … Full Review »
