    The GameCube doesn't look as good as the Xbox version, but it actually plays a whole lot smoother thanks to better tuned collision detection, smoother moves animations, and a much better sense of speed.
  2. It's arguably the best version of the game to date, but a year and a half after it was released on the Xbox, the game doesn't have quite the same impact.

    The bad news is that a lot of little flaws and a couple of not-so-little flaws seemingly inherent to surfing games keep it from being the kind of game that non-surfers are going to be interested in.

    More gamelike in its execution than "Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer." [May 2003, p.138]

    Besides paddling faster than most boats, the surfing action in Next Wave is second only to "Kelly Slater's," the reigning kahuna of surfing games. [May 2003, p.61]

    About the only thing missing is the gameplay. [May 2003, p.55]
