ESPN Extreme Games (later renamed 1Xtreme due to the ESPN license expiring for Sony) was a game released for the PlayStation in 1995. A version was released for the PC's MS-DOS operating system a short time later. The game featured all the sports included in the Summer X-Games of 1995, but it did not feature events like the half pipe in skateboarding. It was similar to Road Rash, which was a game published by Electronic Arts. The game was followed by two sequels, 2Xtreme and 3Xtreme.
The game featured many different sports, including skateboarding, roller blading, street luge and mountain biking. The tracks start at one end of a city, and progress along a linear path to another point of the city. Players kick and punch opponents while trying to obtain cash, attaining first place. The tracks are located in various parts of the world, including Tahoe and San Francisco. The game was available in a large cd jewel case, like the ones used for the Sega CD games.
The game was subsequently renamed 1Xtreme when it was released in the Greatest Hits line because the ESPN license was expired. The ESPN logo and company name were removed from its title. Game content referring to ESPN was also removed.
