Gameplay is similar to previous games in the series. XGRA features a wide range of riders, tracks and bikes that can accelerate at an incredibly rapid rate, going from 0 to 300 mph in a matter of seconds. A returning feature is the ability to Break Sound Barrier: Upon Reaching 750MPH, All Sound Effects Cut Out. (Except For Item Collection sound, Other Rider's Taunts, Weapons Firing, and Ingame Music)
XGRA allows players to race for Eight Different Teams, With Each Team's Bike having their own advantages and drawbacks such as Regeneration, Handling, Speed, Acceleration and Shielding.
