  1. Although not graphically superior, KSPS holds the essence of surfing in solid gameplay, authenticity, and depth.
  2. 88
    One of the best elements of the game is the presentation. Everything is put together extremely well, with no down time, boring level introductions, or yawn-worthy commentaries.
  3. 84
    The best surfing game to date, with energetic play, a strong audio-visual presentation, and design mechanics.
  4. 80
    The most impressive looking and playing surf game ever created, whether you're looking at the water technology, the extras, or the design itself.
  5. If you’re prepared to put up with this lack of variation, you’ll find a good, solid game with many parallels to the Tony Hawk’s series itself.

  7. The replays are totally interactive, the camera can be set just about anywhere, and the control is so easily grasped, you'll be busting out moves that would take you a lifetime to learn. [Oct 2002, p.85]
