    Certainly playable, but without the adrenaline charge of actual surfing, it feels like I'm playing one endless Tony Hawk level. [Oct 2002, p.84]

    It's more successful than any other surfing game that's come before it, but its seemingly random waves and amazing physics don't entirely overcome its repetitive nature or lack of difficulty.
  3. Play Magazine
    70
    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]
  4. Electronic Gaming Monthly

    At its core, Kelly just feels like a bare-bones version of "THPS" in the ocean. [Oct 2002, p.179]
  5. It’s difficult to look at Kelly Slater as anything more than a cash-in.
  6. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    70
    The overall PS2 surfing champ. [Oct 2002, p.148]
  7. There’s still room for a more user-friendly control scheme and fun virtual surfing experience to come down the pike.
