    Short summary describing this game.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    In 2 Xtreme you race against others as you pass through gates to collect power-ups while also scoring points and winning the race.  Points are scored by passing through gates and performing tricks.  Holding down the 'X' button will cause you to accelerate, at the expense of draining your health bar, and holding the 'O' button will make you crouch to maintain speed.  You can knock other players off their boards/bikes/skates by getting within close proximity of each other and pulling the appropriate trigger to fight.  The ease at which you will fall depends on the state of your health bar.  Some gates on the track give you bonuses like speed boosts, full health, increased jump height, and guaranteed knockdowns.  These abilities can be activated by pressing the 'L2' button.

    Game Modes

    There are two gameplay modes in 2 Xtreme: Exhibition and Season. 


    Exhibition is a normal race mode where you pick the vehicle and skater/biker/boarder then complete one race on the course of your choosing. 


    Season mode is a 12 race competition, involving all 12 courses, against 9 other racers.  As the season progresses, each racer is ranked based on their finishing position, point totals, and race completion time.  The goal is to come out on top of the rest of the field at the end of the season.  During the season the course selection is predetermined and you are unable to change players.  However, you can still alter the vehicle attributes between races.


    You can race through four levels:
