  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. I do like this game, and I feel that if a few problems are fixed, it could rank up there with the Tony Hawk’s, and the Aggressive Inline’s of the extreme world.

    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. Neither TransWorld Surf nor "Sunny Garcia" tap the videogame potential of surfing as far as the "Dave Mirra"/"Mat Hoffman"/"Tony Hawk" franchises pushed the interactive representations of their respective sports.

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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. TransWorld Surf PS2 version is a smooth surfing game that I admire because there are very few good surfing games. Graphics are inferior to the xbox version but the animation or collisions is better and a bit more realistic on ps2. Playing is a bit tricky since the game doesn't tell all the tricks in which is a flaw for me. The multiplayer is awesome you can play as a shark, very memorable; then the main campaign is good because it will give you a challenge despite few pointless objectives that don't seem to make sense like jumping on a boat. But overall this game is great go buy it on any version is a gem for sure. Expand
