Conclusion: Hydro Thunder Hurricane is an excellent racer. If you enjoyed it, picking up the DLC will give you three more levels, a bunch of new boats, and some fancy paint jobs besides. The new levels give some legitimately new experiences, and if you’ve been playing in the meantime, the fact things need to be...
Summary: " Hydro Thunder Hurricane " is a fun little arcade title that will certainly amuse you for a few afternoons. It could have done with a few more tracks, but there is certainly plenty to do. It’s not the best looking or sounding game out there, but the most important thing is that it’s fun to play.
Conclusion: Hydro Thunder Hurricane has got an addictive gameplay with plenty of variety and strategy. Little player-friendly touches like allowing you to restart just an individual portion of a tournament rather than the whole thing really show the play testing.

Conclusion: They do encourage you to try everything the game has to offer. At the end of the day this has been one of the better WP7 games Ive played and I am not much of a racing fan.

Excerpt: It would be easy to talk about the amazing highlights that fill Hydro Thunder , one of the Dreamcast’s launch titles. I’ll do that in a moment. But first, I think we should get something out of the way: the game kind of sucks. I know it’s not cool to play my hand so early in the review.
Conclusion: The controls are very simple and easy to grasp (now there's a bad pun). Even though the Dreamcast controller is sort of clunky it feels just fine in the hands while playing. The boats all respond very well and retain their somewhat nutty arcade-styled handling.
Excerpt: Hydro Thunder was an arcade hit first, and then a hit Dreamcast launch title. Now Midway brings their popular hydrofoil racer to the PlayStation, and, despite being translated onto a much older console, Hydro Thunder just manages to stay afloat.
