TransWorld Surf Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: I feel that Transworld Surf is the best surfing title made to date. It does have its ups and downs though. While it does have a steep learning curve, most gamers will become adequate with the gameplay within two hours. As gameplay in all titles in general becomes more complex with “next generation” consoles, I think gamers will have to get used to difficult game starts. So, who will like it? If you’re a true surfer, I would think that this game would be a must have.

Expert Review

Video Game talk

  • Excerpt: "Transworld Surf" seems about as close as video games have got to the experience of surfing. Not quite as exhilarating as watching the recent surf film "Blue Crush", the game suffers somewhat from the fact that it's difficult to simply let loose and fly off waves freely. Given the game's steep learning curve, the game often requires a bit too much precision to make it entirely thrilling at first - players will likely have to work through some frustration before improving...

  • Conclusion: Each level has goals to be completed before you can move onto the next. Some of these goals can be a real pain. Most frustrating for me was the first level (in Championship mode). One of the goals is to rescue eight dolphins from tuna nets (by surfing over them). The dolphins are freakin’ hard to find! The problem with the ocean is that it’s very big with not many landmarks to go by, so you can’t really think, “Dolphin 4 is beside the outcropping right there.

  • Summary: Infogrames shamelessly exploits the Atari name. But then again, does anyone remember the last time the Atari name was on the box of a good game?

  • Summary: "if you manage to get your photo taken enough times during a heat then you will be entered into the main challenge for the location you are surfing in" "I guess as it is a surfing title and the thing you are most likely to be looking at 99% of the time is water, then they have concentrated on the right area to perfect"
  • Pros: Smooth framerate, Great wave effects, Good music
  • Cons: Hard to master, Difficult to control

  • Excerpt: Si c'est le plus souvent un sentiment de déception qui accompagne la découverte de jeux de surf que ce soit sur PC ou sur d'autres supports, voici pour une fois un titre qui pourrait bien changer la donne et mettre tout le monde d'accord. Transworld Surf débarque sur Xbox et devrait sans nul doute s'attirer les faveurs des fans de cette discipline grâce à une réalisation soignée et un gameplay d'un excellent niveau.

  • Conclusion: Dem entgegen stehen der abwechslungsreiche Karrieremodus und spaßige Multiplayer-Varianten, so dass allen hartnäckigen Funsport-Fans eine anspruchsvolle Odysse ins Reich der Wellen blüht. Genre-Neulinge versuchen sich eher am einsteigerfreundlicheren Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 und wagen allenfalls ein Testspiel.
