Summary: I rate it average, I have playstation 2 and in hydro thunder if you have playstation 2 you can only pick three boats in the begining, because even with the memory card it still wont save your history of playing so it starts you over to the begining. and you cant even work up to the faster boats. so you are stuck with only three boats instead of nine boats that sucks..
Excerpt: OK when I first got this game I thought it was pretty cool because of the idea of racing various sorts of jet or otherwise propelled boats. You start off with only 3 boats in the beginner stage and have to finish first in each race to unlock the medium and expert boats. Also you only start with 3 tracks and you unlock more as you win. It takes a fair amount of gameplay to unlock the extra boats and tracks I have to say.
Pros: Decent arcade racer
Cons: Always on catch up feature is really annoying
Excerpt: I first saw this game in all the videos around launch time but this is the first time I have actually got around to buying it. I found it for only £10 and was REALLY worth it. It contains 9 tracks all that are filled with amazing water effects and gameplay to be found. At heart it is an arcade racer so dont expect anything too realistic but the gameplay is amazing. I think that the only drawback about this game is the difficulty as it is quite hard.
Excerpt: Hydro Thunder, as the name suggests, is a high speed water speed boat game. It could also be described as a 3d (and better) version of the nintendo classic: Wave race. The main feature of the game is the power pills which are surrounded all around the course. These either boost you for 4 or 9 secs depending on the pill. The power pills work really well in hydro thunder and if you give the game chance then you will really like it! A class game.
Excerpt: Review: Hydro Thunder OK! Now games like this don’t usually convert very well to the home version, Hydro Thunder was designed to be a high adrenaline arcade racer, which means it drops depth for instant and long term gratification, and to some extent this is true. The Idea is that you take a set of similar Hydro Boats through a set of gob smackingly gorgeous levels from one end to the other collecting speed boosts to give you the extra edge.
Pros: It Fun !
Cons: But it falls apart, while trying to be too fun !

Summary: Hydro Thunder est un jeu de course qui change un peut. On évolue dans des décors 3D avec des hors-bords ce qui est très sympa. Ce jeu est tiré d’une borne d’arcade et la reprend en tout point, normal on est sur Dreamcast. Hydro Thunder est étonnamment un bon jeu, car l’éditeur du jeu à savoir Midway nous sortaient des jeux vidéos toujours injouables comme Mortal Kombat. Hydro Thunder étonne de la part de cette éditeur. Revenons au jeu en lui-même.
Pros: Des courses de hors - bords ? c'est original
