North America Retail Box ArtWith more and more games turning to the field of extreme sports, it was only a matter of time before one game tried to tackle them all. Sega Extreme Sports tries to do just that and does a pretty good job of it.Rather than offer you the chance to play each sport individually like a sort of decathlon, Sega have opted for the rather original choice of rolling them into one, well sort of.The levels, which are structured in such a way that you are completing in an ever-changing non-stop race containing at least three events sees you jumping on snowboards, bungee jumping, mountain biking, hand gliding and even sandboarding in a game that offers you that "I've got to get to the next stage feeling".Couple this with a gruelling Championship mode and the usual array of time trails and bonus tracks and what you end up with is a very nice refreshing change. What Sega have managed to do is create a game that doesn't get bogged down in any one topic, but gives you a sample of them all in a fast-paced race. --Stuart Miles
