Fun speedboat game lifted straight from the arcades
I don't think everyone will appreciate this racer as it might deserve; that's mostly because it will entice a very particular niche of racing freaks, those that appreciate both lite, arcade racers, as well as high speed boating. If you find yourself in both of these categories, this game can be for you. Unfortunately, you are also required to be a bit on the less graphically pretentious side of things, as this game also requires you to tone down your pretentions, at this particular level. Not that it's a badly looking game, it's just that it combines the static interior of your boat racer with the 3D world which could have been a bit more detailed for 97, but, as I said, this is an arcade game; it sacrifices graphics for speed, and with this in mind, played fast, as it is supposed to be played it will leave a good impression on you. The arcade bit is also expressed in terms of upgrades and addons that you will pick up as you play the game. These confer you more speed and some other advantages, so you better pick them up. The controls are alright, maybe a bit on the lax side, but it's alright, not a trudge to play. So, play it and try Heat Wave as well, another quite alright speedboating game.
