Summary: I bought this game per recommendation from Game Informer about " game you might have missed" on the PS2. Probably my favorite PS2 game (and maybe Top 10 games of all time) is SSX3, and they alluded to the fact that if you like that, you'd like Splashdown. I agree wholeheartedly. For the pittance you can get this one for, its probably worth your money - it has what I feel to be a missing quotient in current-gen console gaming: over the top fun.
Summary: Yeah it's pretty fun. But you know what bothers me most about this game? The trick system. Most of it is just button combinations, like in a fighting game. You don't feel much connection to the buttons you press and what the animations are doing. It feels a little too restricted and just not that thrilling. You can do a back flip but it's really slow - impossible to do two of them in one ramp. As far as barrel rolls, well, there are none.
Summary: I'm not much into racing type games so I didn't have too many expectations when I rented this game and find myself pleasantly surprised. There are many new things you can unlock as you progress through the races and the visuals are outstanding. I especially like the fact that each lap around the track changes sometimes in subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle ways.
Summary: I played Splashdown Rides Gone Wild at my best freinds house and I loved it I wanted it so badly I did fourteen chores in a day to earn it the next day. And that is a big deal to me becuase I usually only get one chore done in a week! My mom left like an hour ago to go buy it and I can't wait till she comes home and I can play it!
Summary: This game rocks!!First of all, this game is about racing on a jet ski, while going off ramps, on crazy levels and doing tricks. If you have played splashdowns original game, you will realize that the games are a whole, lot different, mainly beacause the first one was made by Atari and Infrogames, while the second on is made by THQ and rainbow studios. There are also different modes. traning mode:you can lern how to steer,manuver and do stunts.
Summary: Infogrames has made a great game, the movement of the camera over the rider, it's soft and realistic. The camera doesn't move as much as other games, so you don't get a headache while playing. The places were you run are well done, you go to plenty of exciting places. The problem is that you can't choose the seadoo you'd like to have, or the color of the suit for the rider,and the number of riders is limited for my taste. However this game is very well done.
Summary: Okay, there are plenty of games that are more exciting out there, but this is a really nice family game to have. It is good, clean, and fun. The graphics are good (but not great) and the physics are for the most part realistic and believable. The controls are easy to pick up and the tricks are fairly easy to complete. Splashdown contains a good mix of upbeat music and the gameplay should keep you occupied for a decent amount of time.
Summary: This game is a really good one. If you like racing games, you'll love this game. There are over 7 levels, over four characters, and 20 diffrent tricks to preform. The levels rock. But the only problem is, after you play alot, you get pretty bored. But I guess that happens with other games also. Also,there are cool songs. But sometimes,the songs get cut off with out finishing.If your a race game lover, I advise you to get this game. It's worth it!
Summary: This game is good 'cause: a)lasts long (if you don't play it for very long at a time) b)graphics are great c)you can listen to music without playing d)the music is really cool e)there are really cool modes One review said that on Free Ride you have to go on the right side of the buoy, but that is only half true. If you go out of the course you don't. If youre like me and like a little variation of games,get this one;it's defianately the best water sport game.
