    Riptide GP is indeed an excellent arcade racer. The game comes with three modes, twelve tracks, six vehicles and three different difficulty levels, so it'll keep you entertained for a long time. What a pity there's no multiplayer.

    Ultimately, Riptide GP is a graphically intense and fun racer that'll keep you wet, wild and fully engaged for several hours. Definitely worth $4.99, and congrats to Vector Unit on such a artistically impressive and fun effort. Now bring on the updates.

    Those looking for a jet-ski racer on the iPhone should give Riptide GP a crack. It's well made with a lot of content to keep you racing for a while.

    It would certainly have been nice to get some multiplayer, even just on a local level, but even without it, Riptide GP is an entertaining title that looks fantastic on new devices.

    Reminiscent of titles such as Aqua Moto Racing or even Wave Race for the N64, Riptide GP takes the visuals to the next level, though is does so at the expense of control options, quality AI, and overall content.

    Riptide G has a great graphic engine, but after a couple of races, gameplay issues will start to emerge to drown the title.

    It all feels like a beautiful graphical demo where someone forgot to put a game in.
