  • Excerpt: I can never fail to applaud a publisher that decides to release a brand new game at a reduced price point. Having picked up Argonaut’s Carve from publisherless oblivion, Take 2 have decided to do just that, with this Xbox Live compatible title hitting the shelves at just £19.99.

  • Summary: Overall for its price you can't really go wrong, it offers a fair amount of good gameplay with plenty of tricks and is better than its Xbox competitor Splashdown. The addition of online play also adds to the longevity of the game.

As it is, it's a perfectly serviceable game—adequate in every respect such that fans of the genre will find satisfaction, but conversely lacking any...

  • Excerpt: Believe it or not, it is difficult to be a game reviewer sometimes. Oh, it’s true. After all, you see, not every game that comes across our desks is "Grade A" material. In fact, there are some games not even worth a letter grade or number score.

  • Excerpt: Just in case the world needed another water-based race game, Global Star Software brings us Carve for Xbox, a competent but completely unremarkable wet-side-of-the-beach racing/trick-riding game.

Carve

  • Conclusion: ...Because as much as you can poke holes in this game, the challenging career mode and the highly playable multiplayer (including excellent Xbox Live support) mean that at its low price Carve is an excellent racing alternative for those who've driven PGR2 into the ground, or perhaps just need a...
  • Pros: Lovely, varied water effects., Good split screen and Xbox Live modes., Carve is nice and cheap, so you don't have to, goodbye to much cash., Does everything that the more famous Jet Ski racers did, but does it online too.
  • Cons: There's nothing particularly groundbreaking here and it's unlikely to hold your attention for long., Tricking is vital to success, and will be a turn-off to some racers., Without wanting to, any spirits, Carve isn't the, game in the world and won't make much of a, in the charts.
