  • Summary: Drop-in on a gnarly Fiddlesticks 30-foot wave of have fun sessions with Sandy Beach?s 3-4 foot sets as one of 9 world-class surfers. Packed with ultra-realistic moves, players will be stoked as they pull off round-house cutbacks, lippers, floaters, and catch unreal barrel rides. [Ubi Soft]

  1. Be prepared to spend an infuriatingly considerable amount of time experimenting with the controls and learning the tricks. This, of course, is upsetting considering this is a sports title and a genre that doesn’t get much attention to begin with.
  2. Not a huge improvement over "Championship Surfer," but it is certainly much better than the PS2's other surfing game, the horrid "Surfing H30."

    It's plain looking, and it seems very basic in every way. So, there is nothing terribly next-generation about it.
  4. The age of the engine is apparent, and the presentation and gameplay simply aren't up to par with those of more modern surfing games.
  5. Sunny Garcia Surfing’s lack of gameplay and graphics make it a weak contender at best.
  6. 55
    Although an old game, Sunny Garcia’s Surfing can bring back some good old launch-title quality gaming goodness, and if you’re a fan of surfing games but haven’t checked this one out yet, it’s worth at least a hire.
  7. Not as offensive or terrible as the rating we've given it might imply.

    It is a fun game, if you surf you can get into it. I would not recommend it if you have no idea about surfing.

    Not too bad for surfers if the real world is flat and you need a fix. Easy start but hard to finish. Not a lot of depth though as it's Not too bad for surfers if the real world is flat and you need a fix. Easy start but hard to finish. Not a lot of depth though as it's basically launch, ride, finish etc., no exploring, no interactivity + each beach only has one wave which breaks identically. Expand
