In XXX, players are transported into an underground spy world as they race through 11 heart-stopping levels. Featuring furious side-scrolling action and time-based motorcycle combat, players will use a stockpile of high-tech weaponry and gadgets including Electro-Impulse Motorcycles, High-Impact Incendiary Grenades and the Dart Chrome gun from the movie to combat a clever, organized and ruthless enemy that threatens the future of the world. The motorcycle combat in XXX features 3D-style gameplay, giving players the most viscerally immersive handheld experience ever.
