    Its great controls, super-realistic physics and astounding graphics will leave you searching for a towel.
  2. It’s a great laugh in 4-player and the 1-player Championship mode is well tough to beat.
  3. While not perfect, Wave Race: Blue Storm is the most accurate video game representation of water-based racing ever to be released.
  4. 80
    if you're willing to take the time to get over the initial awkwardness of steering, you're in for one of the freshest and most rewarding water racing experiences since the original "Wave Race."
  5. A poorly controlled game with hard-to-perform tricks can’t quite destroy one of the best looking water racers ever made.
  6. Depending on your gaming tastes and how much you played Wave Race 64, you will either love this game or think it is nothing more than a technology demo that showcases the graphical prowess of the GameCube and offers nothing that gamers haven't played before.
  7. The steering feel[s] somewhat awkward at first as well as stiff. This to me interrupts the smooth control design of the original game and complicates it for no other reason than to be complicated.

    i just wanted to drop a quick review for this game cos i'm missing it sooooo much right now and i think next payday i'm gonna run off and grab myself a gamecube and a copy of waverace and have a full nostalgasem because i genuinly think even with the quality of arcade racers available today that this is still one of my all time fav' racers and if you own a wii or a gamecube than its totally worth tracking down a copy but remember if its your first time playing blue storm try to stick with ricky cos he's the easiest character to learn the controles with :D Expand
