XG3: Extreme G Racing, or XGIII: Extreme G Racing, or more commonly known as Extreme-G 3, is a futuristic racing game for the Nintendo GameCube developed by Acclaim Cheltenham and published by Acclaim Entertainment.

XG3 is a fast-paced futuristic/extreme racing game. Players start at the lowest and slowest classes at first, and use skilled racing and a wide variety of weapons and defensive items to climb up to higher classes. Unlike other games of its type, some simulator aspects are present in the game, like the presence of the sound barrier.



Various decals in the game may not display correctly due to z-fighting issues. This can be addressed by disabling "Fast Depth Calculation".


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.


Config Setting Notes
Fast Depth Calculation Off Avoid z-fighting on shield/ammo pickups and other decals (i.e. windows on buildings)
