|Like fun sports action? Wave Race : Blue Storm brings fun jet-ski wave riding to the Game Cube with gorgeous water graphics.|
Sports games on consoles need to draw you into the competition. Wave Racer does this nicely with a variety of characters to choose from and a series of very different race areas. There are fun stunts to do, different race tracks, a variety of environmental conditions. There's fun music, too.
The graphics, as I mentioned, are really amazing. Water is one of the hardest things to code - it's fluid, dynamic, and changes near you affect objects further away (ripples, splashes, etc). Wave races does a phenomonal job with waves, see-through water, and the rest. There are still a few bizarre flaws - try to do a barrel roll over the sand and, when you fall off, you climb up out of the depths of the sand back onto your racer.
A great escapist fantasy of blue waters and warm sands!
