    It keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire way through. It's an amazing rush. [Nov 2001, p.155]

    It’s a fast-paced, adrenaline rush kind of game, and it’s really quite difficult, but that should just mean it’ll keep you busy for a while.
  3. The unique racing experience offered here stands out from the pack of futuristic titles with high-speed action and gorgeous graphics.
  4. Kinetica has done bold new things with track design and playability, as well as giving gamers the sugar rush of speed that racing game fans crave.
  5. Not only is it superior to the competition in every graphical aspect, it's superior in every gameplay aspect, too. Heck, it practically annihilates "Extreme G3" and the last two "F-Zero" games released.
  6. While the core of the game is pretty bland, the trick system is excellent.
  7. The changes Kinetica introduces into the formula are so miniscule, for the most part, that only a true connoisseur would notice or care.

    Give this game a 10! I'm not much of a racer, but this game blows. I love it! I can't seem to stop playing! It's fun to know Give this game a 10! I'm not much of a racer, but this game blows. I love it! I can't seem to stop playing! It's fun to know that women dominate this game and have an advantage of winning than the men do!! talk about flexibility!

    Awesome graphics sound and gameplay the only problem is that it's a little too hard.

    The game is very addictive. Its a notch above XG3 because you actually move as opposed to strafing in XG3. The only thing the game is missing The game is very addictive. Its a notch above XG3 because you actually move as opposed to strafing in XG3. The only thing the game is missing is a sequel. Oh and of course gotta love the girls... Expand
