    The most impressive looking and playing surf game ever created...If Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer doesn't spark a huge interest in videogame surfing, well then sh*t, nothing will.
  2. The digital beaches of the game are so close in look and feel to the real thing that I could almost smell the salt water.
  3. The career mode has a lot of depth, and pulling off all of the tricks in the spectacular looking waves is an absolute joy.
  4. 80
    One humongous drawback to this otherwise seemingly outstanding surf game, however, is the ongoing slowdown.
  5. There’s still room for a more user-friendly control scheme and fun virtual surfing experience to come down the pike.
  6. The overall PS2 surfing champ. [Oct 2002, p.148]
  7. The whole game concept is worn and exhausted, the graphics are shallow, the gameplay is repetitive, and the sounds are poor.

    This game is awesome! By far KSPS is the best game of this genre by leaps and bounds. It's very easy to learn and you'll be busting mad air and surfing sick breaks in no time. If you surf your definitely going to want this game on flat days so you can travel to breaks like Kirra, G-Land, Pipe, Bells and to 60 ft Cortez Bank. If you don't surf then you'll never get what all the hype is about but we (surfers) have been waiting for a game like this for a long time. This game is not perfect but it is definitely worth 50 bones to surf famous breaks while busting phat airs and getting shacked in sick tubes. Good job Kelly and Treyarch and I can't wait until KSPS2. I bet it's going to blow this one away. Expand

    Great game but a little too easy. I beat it in 3 days and I'm not a hardcore gamer.
