  1. While the graphics took a small hit in the PS2 version, they have managed to tweak the control to near perfection.
  2. The wave graphics are solid; the soundtrack is marvelous; and, most importantly, the game play is tight and intuitive.
  3. It remains enjoyable and challenging with considerable replayability even if it's not going to take home any awards for visuals or challenge the popularity of the bestselling "Tony Hawk" titles.
  4. 78
    The PS2 doesn't look very good compared to the Xbox version, but it actually plays a whole lot smoother, thanks to better tuned collision detection, smoother moves animations, and a much better sense of speed.
  5. It's not going to take home any awards for visuals, nor is it a "Tony Hawk" killer in any way, but it proves to be an enjoyable and challenging surfing game with considerable replayability.
  6. Multiplatform gamers should be playing it on the Xbox.
  7. 60
    A near-complete package. There's a good variety of moves, challenges, and features to keep the average extreme sports fan coming back.

    UNBELIEVABLE game! Some parts a bit tricky though, like getting some of the photos.
