Transworld Surf

The Next Level
2 December 2002
  • Excerpt: Taking your pick from a lot of thirteen surfers and ten exotic locales spread across the globe, each playable either at daytime or nighttime, you surf against a wealth of obstacles: competing surfers, unfriendly aquatic life, flotsam, and, of course, the vigorous strength of the ocean. All the waves are randomly generated and you can either swim to them by yourself or call a reef girl to pull you over to one on her jet ski.

  • Excerpt: Given the nature of the game, you'll be looking at water more often than not. While history says we have had a rather difficult time replicating this element of nature on the gaming screen, we seem to be learning from our mistakes. Transworld Surf displays some fine examples of ocean waves and their accompanying effects, eliminating the 'ugly factor' from the game that seems to be able to detract from the fun all too easily, even though the two should have nothing to do...

  • Excerpt: No matter how many faults I can find in TransWorld Surf (and there are a few), I can say that above all, it did one thing that no other surfing game has accomplished since T&C Surf Designs way back on the NES: it made me want to play more almost immediately after wiping out. It took a few tries, but once I started learning how to bust a few moves, the speed at which my surfer got his stuff together after a wipeout suddenly became far too slow, and I was mashing buttons...

  • Excerpt: The graphics have been scaled back considerably from its original Xbox iteration, but TransWorld Surf on the PlayStation2 makes up for its blotchy and choppy shortcomings with a tight control systems that makes surfing seem easy, if not easy-to-learn.

  • Conclusion: Das Spiel taugt nur als Partyspiel etwas. Der liebe, nette Multiplayer-Modus ist aber nicht genug, um das Spiel als empfehlenswert zu kennzeichnen. Surffans und die, die es werden wollen, können damit aber sicherlich etwas anfangen (Haifreunde natürlich auch). Das Spiel beeindruckt durch seine gute Grafik. Die miserable Steuerung und der schlecht Sound ziehen die Wertung aber runter. Ach ja, die Reefgirls laden natürlich auch zu einem Spielchen ein.
