Summary: From tranquil lagoons to raging tempests, this personal watercraft racer gleams with stunning water and lighting effects. But beautiful aquascapes are only part of the stunning story in this follow-up to the best-selling Wave Race 64. Superb animations, breathtakingly realistic physics and high-scoring stunts of huge ramps will have you shivering with water-soaked thrills. We're told that a wetsuit won't be included with Wave Race Blue Storm. Maybe it should be.
Pros: Selectable Weather
Conditions; Unsurpassed Presentation; Great Variety of Play
Modes; Fun Multiplayer Options; Many Codes & Shortcuts
Summary: Wave Race: Blue Storm is a solid follow-up
to one of the best N64 racing titles ever. Instead of changing everything, the
series has simply evolved in a predictable direction. While this installment isn’t
revolutionary, there are significant improvements to the graphics and gameplay
that keep the series fresh. Nintendo hasn’t messed with success and since the
original was so much fun, it doesn’t matter.
Conclusion: One of the games strong points is the graphics. Making use of the Gamecube's graphics capabilities, the reflections in the water are something else - every splash is transferred onto the screen, giving you a greater sense of realism.
Summary: With many apologies for the delay, Justin Nation gives the lowdown on Wave Race for the GameCube.
Pros: A visually spectacular game, Guaranteed to give you a unique race every time you pick it up, One of the most challenging racers you will find on any system
Cons: The learning curve for the control in the game will turn some people off, with a cascading effect that hurts its multi-player value, Though there are some other modes, outside of the circuits there is little to motivate you to play them, Ultimately a little too much redux of the original instead of breaking any significant new ground
