Ski-Doo X-Team Racing is a snowmobile racing game. In addition to just racing, you can do different stunts. There are fifteen different circuits, some indoors, to race on. In the beginning only a couple are available, the remaining have to be unlocked. There are three different sleds: one available from the start, the other after unlocking them. In single player you can either race in a practice mode or in the championship mode, with six different championships in total. Initially you can just choose the easy championship, but if you perform good you can unlock more. In the easy championship you will compete against six amateur riders over six rounds. To proceed you have to reach a top three position in the overall score table.
In the game's multiplayer mode up to eight players can compete over Internet or LAN, in the racing mode or stunt mode. In stunt mode you have to reach a certain score limit by doing stunts you get points for. The game also has a tuning feature. Here you can change different components of your sled for better performance. These include the lug height, studs, front drop, swaybar and clutch.
