  • Summary: In the future racing is faster - much faster. More dangerous - much more dangerous. And it's totally merciless, which means anything goes. Run by the XGRA (the Extreme Gravity Racing Association), this motorized bloodsport throws teams of futuristic bikes and daredevil riders against one another through dangerous tracks that crisscross vast and treacherous landscapes pushing all to their limits.... And beyond! [Acclaim] Expand

  1. It's just that the game is thoroughly polished. You turn it on and everything feels right; the music, graphics, and even the menu system all complement each other perfectly. [Nov 2003, p.147]

    Offers mesmerizing, high-speed racing and crazy bike-to-bike combat on zanier tracks. Play on extremely large TV screens may induce apparent-motion-related vomiting. Consider it yet another bonus feature.
  3. The lack of depth may hurt overall sales but in my opinion it increases the fun ratio to equal that of a great, arcade racer.
  4. It's bigger and more ambitious than any of its predecessors, but XGRA is hindered by a few unfortunate technical and design issues.
  5. XGRA isn't as impressive as "Extreme G 3" was when it first hit PS2 and Cube. The graphics look roughly the same, it plays similarly, and it has the same main drawback: not enough tracks. [Nov 2003, p.174]
  6. The changes don't amount to much; it looks a lot like the last game and sounds worse. Ouch. [Nov 2003, p.78]
  7. At first glance, with it's twisting, gravity-defying tracks and fluorescent visuals, XGRA might remind you of the recent "F-Zero GX." Upon further inspection it's actually slower, sometimes much slower, less colorful and a lot less interesting.

    Awesome Game Beats The 3rd In The Series Into The Ground Maybe Not As Visually Impressive With The Worlds But It Feels Alot Better To Play You Can Just Naturally Play This And Have Fun Where On The 3rd You Found Yourselfe Almost Wantin To Complete It And Play Another Game. Expand

    Amazing graphics, great track design, great gameplay, great sense of speed, good music (the dance ones), lacks in depth and in options but all in all a great and FUN game, single player and multiplayer wise. Expand

    This is a step backwards from the mediocre Extreme G Racing III. The courses aren't as good, and graphics somehow look worse. The gameplay is about the same. There are at least 10 racers on the ps2 better than this. Another thing this game shares with the 3rd version is a overly long and stupid title. Expand
