Less A Sequel, More Of An Extreme Upgrade

  • Summary: Even though the design remains the same, the formula still works, and it looks better than ever. Great for fans of Wave Race 64 or racing games.
  • Pros: Solid framerate, great wave and weather effects, better rider models, bigger stunt mode.
  • Cons: Not radically different in terms of gameplay. No lighting effects. Average music.

Best racer on the Cube

"benji-5000", amazon.co.uk

  • Summary: This is the first game I got for my Cube, and it's perhaps still my favourite. Obviously I love racing games; if you can't stand them, then this isn't going to win you over. In fact, the main criticism that's been levelled at this game is that it's inaccessibly challenging, putting off more casual race game fans. This might have some truth in it, particularly for the younger gamers, who have been brought up on easier games.

You will sink, but this game doesn't

the_guru, Ciao
25 May 2003
  • Excerpt: "...looks fantastic. A giant wave coming towards you definatly adds to the excitemnet of this exhilerating racer. What I find even more better is that the graphics play a part in the game, as the waves are essential to go through the courses. On a smaller note the sounds also play nicley where the races take place. There will be relaxing music playing or even rock music. All that can heared through the sound options menu. The vioces are the most annoying ...
  • Pros: Nice water textures .
  • Cons: Hard !  HARD !  That does not describe it !

Very underrated.

  • Summary: I don't understand some of the poor reviews I've seen of this game. Especially the Amazon.co.uk review, it seems the reviewer hasn't read the instruction manual properly at all because to say the jet ski's handle like a milk float is just plain misleading and wrong. You can turn them 360 degrees extremely quickly if you learn the basic controls, it's not hard, even for a beginner.

Gorgeous!

  • Summary: I live on a small island and see the sea everyday on my way to school. So belive me when i say the water and weather efects are GORGEOUS! along with the briliant details added in such as loads of fishy animals in the water, the briliant backgounds to the levels, the reflections and the fancy efect of the rain hitting the water. GORGEOUS! However graphics dont make a game, it's the gameplay, playability and depth thats important.

Don't miss this game!

  • Summary: Wave Race: Blue Storm is a superb sequel to Wave Race for N64. The water is even more realistic, there are more tracks and the controls are more complex for even more tricks and moves. And of course it's all even more fun in the 4 player mode! If you like race games, you shouldn't miss this game!

WAVE RACE : BLUE STORM

Mr. R Gupta, amazon.co.uk
17 March 2002
  • Summary: Any Nintendo fan will have played Wave Race 64; in fact anyone who calls themselves a 'gamer' should have probably played this amazing game before. Playability, depth, fun and easily the most realistic water effects that had ever been seen - this really was a classic N64 game. So, five years on can we hold Wave Race: Blue Storm in the same high esteem?

Not for the seasick

PJ, amazon.co.uk
15 March 2002
  • Summary: At a first look this game underwhelms slightly. And that is not becuase the front end presentation is lacking because it certainly isn't, and its certainly not because the graphics and more importantly the water effects are not good enough becuase that is not the case either. In fact it's hard to put a finger on exactly what it is that means that this game doesn't have the instant appeal you would hope for, but if you're willing to give this game a chance then you are in...
