Although there are definite arguments to be made about the appropriation of Road Rash's engine as the groundwork for this disc, I can't say anything negative about Extreme Games. I wholeheartedly recommend this game. It is enormously entertaining. As addictive an excursion as I've ever enjoyed. I wish I had a picture of every smile this game will generate.
The Video Game Critic
The frame rate is quite good even in the split screen mode, and the digitized sound effects and high-octane background music are also commendable. The game's only notable flaws are its awkward memory card interface and a confusing scoring system. Otherwise, I'm glad 989 repackaged this game as 1 Extreme (a year after releasing 2 Xtreme), because this gem does not deserve be forgotten.
Extreme isn't the deepest racing game ever made, but it's fresh take and fighting edge make it worth a serious look. Besides, where else can you crank your skateboard up to 60 mph?
However, without a whole lot of speed or track strategy, ESPN Extreme still ends up only as a decent game. Too bad, 'cuz it could've been much better.
Technisch aufwendiges Rennspektakel vor malerischer Kulisse. Mit
viel Action und gutem Zwei-Spieler-Modus.
ESPN Extreme Games isn't the worst game ever made, and can be pretty fun. There're just so many games for the PlayStation that look better, play better, and are more fun.
