    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 This game is awesome! By far KSPS is the best game of this genre by leaps and bounds.

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.

  1. 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.

    It's organic intensity versus Hawk's urban chaos, but it works. [Oct 2002, p.30]
  3. It’s difficult to look at Kelly Slater as anything more than a cash-in.
