  1. A great solo experience that'll leave patient gamers with nothing to show for it but sore thumbs and the satisfaction of being truly, totally radical.
  2. 65
    In the end, I have to say I am totally addicted to this crappy-somehow fun, totally simplistic surfing game, and I can't explain why exactly.
  3. A fun game with decent gameplay, but the shortage of modes, run-of-the-mill graphics, and lack of variety prevent "Surf Riders" from being to surf games what "Tony Hawk's Pro Skater" is to skateboarding games.
  4. Surf Riders stinks! My only consolation to the unfortunate surfing fanatic deprived of his/her virtual wave simulation is that things aren't any better over on the PS2, where "Surfing H30" reigns supreme as king of what's bad about games. Bummer!
  5. A painful aquatic encounter, though not on the same level as, say, a jellyfish in the swim trunks.
  6. Sure, it sounds gnarly, but the frustrating control interface and primitive graphics make Surf Riders a wipeout.
