Video Game Ad of the Day: 2Xtreme

2Xtreme is the follow up to ESPN Extreme Games, and retains the same Road Rash-inspired gameplay. It throws snowboarding into the mix for a bit of variety.


Video Game Ad of the Day: ESPN Extreme Games

One of the better early PlayStation games.

ESPN Extreme Games is a racing game based off the then new ESPN X-Games competition, which debuted in 1995. The game predated the whole trick/combo based extreme sports style gameplay best implemented by Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater – it actually shares a lot in common with Road Rash. It was later re-released as 1Xtreme after the ESPN license expired.
