Excellent water physics and great online racing
This is one of the best racing games I've played. My first racing game was Pole Position (guess that gives away my age) but I've enjoyed numerous racing games including Gran Turismo and many F1 games over the years.
This game has excellent water physics, which means you get bumped around a lot by waves, just like you do on a jet ski in real life. You really have to think quick and make constant micro-adjustments to 'land' on the water correctly, on both the big jumps and also on the small micro-jumps in choppy water--to get the best times.
Online play is fantastic! Some keys to success include:
- on jumps, always get your jet pointed in the right direction before landing,
- use most, but not all, shortcuts (some are actually slower),
- know when to use tricks (and when not!)
- know the best trick for each jump (tip: don't do a big trick that'll give you more boost than your boost meter can hold; that just wastes time),
- save your boost to use at the optimal time (many folks use it right away, which isn't always the best way to use it)
- when behind, draft others for extra speed,
- play online, watch the fastest drivers, then do what they do!
Still waiting for developers to address AI issues.
Simple game to learn with some annoying quirks (a tie, which has happened three times due to computer AI magically speeding up at the finish line, automatically places you as runner up). The game absolutely chews through the battery on an iPhone 6 though.
Edit: As others have commented, after advancing in the game, it suddenly becomes insanely hard and basically unbeatable. Bad game design imo. Not worth playing until they fix the difficulty settings.
Would love to see one of the developers actually beat the Grand Prix courses with maxed out skis at level 25.
Splendid game, and not easy AT ALL
I freaking love this game. Better graphics, super strong AI... it's a good challenge even if you set the game difficulty at Easy.
To beat the AI later in game, you really need to remember all the lanes, all the shortcuts and improve your riding skills multiple times.
And surprisingly you need to statically hit the break from time to time. I think it's the only racing game where break actually matters. Nice design!!!
