"At a popular period for futuristic racers, Extreme-G was certainly not ground breaking... nor terrible either. Pace is extreme indeed; developers allowing this by misting the upcoming track, luckily not spoiling your ability to race. Admirable scenery (dystopian industries, Aztec past / future fusions) and fitting soundtrack rescue it because track layouts are sometimes unforgiving and multiplayer is unmemorable. A possible alternative to F-Zero X."

"Being the first game in the franchise costed some points to Xtreme-G, but my inner TRON fan kept enduring what the game threw my way until completion. Amazing soundtrack, very nice 4 player modes and very creative track design make this a winner. It just not as good as the sequels. However, reaching Mach speed and producing a Sonic Boom remains a stunning experience."
"It's a more or less fun game, with medium graphics, average gameplay, with the only great point being the soundtrack. And there's the competition, how can you pay attention to an average game when you have, on the same console, F-Zero X, Star Wars Racing, Mario Kart 64 and Top Gear Rally. In a time of amazing racing games, Extreme-G can't reach the bar."
"At the time, I stuck to only buying first/second-party titles and renting third-party. Looking back, I wish I bought Extreme-G instead of F-Zero X. This game's visuals are a lot more interesting and the the sense of speed is greater with the more detailed terrain. The weapons make 4-player racer-to-racer interaction more practical too. Furthermore, the soundtrack seems more fitting for a futuristic racer."
